Xbox Music Pass pricing for US and UK markets leak
Expected to be part of the formal Windows 8 announcement in October, the new Xbox Music Service appears to have similar pricing as when the service was known as “Zune Pass.”

The service allows users to download or stream as much music as they like for a monthly fee or annual payment.  The pricing in Britain has two options, either monthly or yearly.  The monthly subscription will cost £8.99 and the twelve month subscription will run £89.90. 

In the US, there are a couple trial period options listed, along with monthly or annual subscription options.  The monthly Music Pass will cost $9.99, and the yearly option, $99.90.

We expect that there may be some additional features announced during the Windows 8 introduction in October.  There is also some talk that a unified music and video option may be made available as well.
