The 36 biggest games coming to the Xbox One this holiday season

The Xbox Live Gold subscription is gaining a little bit more value on the Xbox One. Microsoft’s Albert Penello confirmed on Twitter that Xbox One owners will not be required to sign up for a subscription to Xbox Music in order to use the service. Much like Pandora, iTunes Radio, or any similar streaming service, Xbox Music will have a free, ad-supported option, matching up with Xbox Music’s current offerings on Windows 8.1 and music.xbox.com. This has not been the case on Xbox 360, which does require a paid subscription to access Xbox Music. Microsoft has yet to announce whether or not the free option will be migrating to the 360 as well.
