Samsung Note 20 Pre-Orders Include 3 Free Months Of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, Controller

Ahead of xCloud’s full launch on Android next month, Samsung has announced a neat promotion for the upcoming Note 20 smartphone and Galaxy Tab S7 tablet. Pre-orders of either device will come with three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and an Xbox controller, immediately opening the door for streaming Xbox games on new Samsung devices starting September 15.

Announced during Samsung’s latest Unpacked event and reported by our sister site CNET, the deal will be available starting tomorrow, August 6 when pre-orders go live for the Note 20. The Galaxy Tab S7 releases later this year.

The Note 20 retails for $1,000, while a more powerful Note 20 Ultra 5G costs $1,300. If you pre-order at Best Buy, you could save up to $700 on your purchase depending on which device you trade in and also get up to $150 in Samsung credit. The Galaxy Tab S7’s price starts at $649, and a beefier S7+ will be available starting at $849.

Microsoft recently announced that its Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which normally costs $15/month, will begin including xCloud streaming integration at launch on September 15. Though Microsoft hasn’t unveiled the full list of games available to stream at launch, it will be more than 100 and includes Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Gears 5, Forza Horizon 4, and plenty more popular Xbox One titles. Microsoft also unveiled new xCloud accessories recently, including multiple controllers.
