Multiplayer Subscriptions – The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Nintendo Switch Online plus Expansion Pack launches Oct. 25 - Dot Esports

Many of the most popular games these days require monthly subscriptions to unlock their full potential. These exclusive memberships offer a variety of services, including online multiplayer support, access to exclusive gear, or even special downloadable content!

Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Own an Xbox and want to game online? How about a Windows-based PC and want to unlock Microsoft titles the day they release? With Game Pass Ultimate you can do both.

Immerse yourself in a library of over 100 high-quality games. Enjoy the benefits of Xbox Live Gold, EA Play, and play across devices from the cloud when you join Xbox Game Pass Ultimate

Nintendo Switch Online

This is an essential service if you own a Switch and want to game online. Your membership lets you team up with (or take out) friends online in the most popular Nintendo titles.

PlayStation Plus

Enhance your PlayStation experience with access to online multiplayer, monthly games, exclusive discounts and more.

Game Pass – Netflix for Video Games

Buy Xbox Game Pass for PC - Microsoft Store en-SG

Xbox Game Pass is the way to go if you want a massive selection of old and new titles to peruse and play as much (or as little) as you want. Here’s how it works:

You pay one monthly price to unlock an entire catalogue of Xbox and/or PC games (depending on the subscription you choose). There are hundreds of different titles to play 24/7, for as long as your membership is active— including new releases (like Halo Infinite and Forza Horizon 5) on the day they launch!

Plus, you can now get Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold bundled in one package called “Xbox Game Pass Ultimate”. With Ultimate, you can also play an ever-growing library of games on your PC too!

The Gift of Choice

Welcome to Steam

We typically sell all of our Top-Up cards for less than they’re actually valued at; meaning that you’re basically earning yourself free money every time you buy one of our discounted cards!

Know someone who wants to buy a product that’s ONLY available via Steam, Microsoft, or maybe the PSN store? Well, head over to our website first and buy gift cards to save at those other locations. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Head over to the Top-Ups section of our website HERE.
  2. Select the store cards you need in your corresponding region.
  3. Follow the instructions on how to redeem your card, and then buy the product of your choice in the store of your choice!

That’s really all there is to it. It’s a little bit more work, but it’s a good amount of savings.
