Microsoft just unveiled a limited-time subscription service, Xbox All Access, for not just games, but the console itself starting at $19.99 a month. Well, not exactly.

You’ll maybe have just two or three buttons to mash, and the game won’t get much more complex than that. This is what I’ve thought about these different “Interactive art” style games that I’ve played in the past.
