    Upgrading XBox Live Gold subscription to Gamepass Ultimate conversion ratio 1:1?- November 2020


    I see a lot of conflicting answers to this question (including from ambassadors/moderators here, as far as I can tell) and was wondering if anyone could provide a concrete answer as of the current date.
    e.g.:

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/xbox/forum/all/conflicting-info-on-converting-existing-gold/2dd1882b-5c8d-4b3e-9daa-ce1f296be579?auth=1

    I currently have almost 3 years of XBL Gold on my account and have previously had (but do not currently have) 1 month of Game Pass Ultimate via an old sale. When I select "Upgrade" the fine print states "Joining Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will upgrade your
    remaining Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass or EA Play membership(s) into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate at the current conversion ratio, up to 36 months...". Is this to say that if I upgrade today, my 3 years of XBL Gold will be converted to less than 3 years of Ultimate?
    Or is that ratio 1:1 for XBL Gold?

    Sorry to add to the excess of posts on this topic and thank you for any and all help!

    :)

    xbox ultimate exchange rip off

    On top of the Gold, GamePass and GamePass for PC you also get Ultimate Editions of Xbox Game Studios games. You get a way bigger value with ultimate that's why the conversion rate is lower. As others have already mentioned, the initial conversion converts
    both the Xbox Live Gold and GamePass time at the ratio of 1:1

    I had Game Pass Ultimate from November to February, then cancelled it. I never did the Live Gold to GPU conversion. Can I do that if I sign up for Game Pass again?

    Yes it will. If you are upgrading from a standard gold or game pass to Ultimate, it will upgrade at a ratio of 1:1. The FAQ does mention a different conversion ratio, but that is if you currently have Ultimate and are adding a standard gold or game pass.

    Good to know. The small print leads you to believe that you are married to the upgrade.

    Hi peter davidberrill,

    When you upgrade from Live Gold to Ultimate your account subscription is upgrade and Live Gold is cancelled automatically as you have chosen to upgrade to the all in one service.

    You can only revert back to Live Gold if you Cancel your subscription for Ultimate.

    Any GamePass or Live Gold cards are converted based on a ratio based on estimated retail price of thise codes. Conversion rates can be found in the GamePass FAQ at the
    bottom of the page.
