Many of us have extensive backlogs of games that we'll probably never get to, but if you have a voracious gaming appetite and own an Xbox One, Microsoft's latest news may be up your alley.

Today, the company announced the Xbox Game Pass, a subscription-based program that will let members access more than 100 digital games for a monthly fee.

Microsoft will charge £8 per month (or US$10 in the States) for the program, and it's planned to launch later this spring.

Xbox Live Gold members will get a first crack at it before everyone else can subscribe.

Unlike Sony's PlayStation Now service for various devices, these games won't stream to your console – you can download and play them locally without concerns about consistent bandwidth.

Granted, you'll need to maintain your subscription to actually play the games, and Microsoft says that games will cycle in and out of the library over time.
