For Xbox Insider in Colombia and Ireland are due to interesting days, because Microsoft starts the test from a new family plan to complement the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. The new plan should include up to four people and apply over Windows, Xbox and Xbox Cloud Gaming. At the start there are some important points that Xbox insiders have to consider.

The people with whom you share the plan do not have to be insiders themselves, but reside in the same country. Members of Xbox All Access are excluded from the preview. However, the largest catch is the conversion if you take part in the Xbox Game Pass Insider Preview and subscribe to the plan via the Microsoft Store. Based on the monetary value that the previous plan had, the remaining time is converted to the new plan. According to Microsoft, a full month means a membership of 18 days in the Insider Preview.

This conversion is final and users have to let their insider preview expire before they are allowed to subscribe to a new, regular plan. It is not yet known when the new preview will be extended to other countries.

The gruesome real story behind Sleeping Beauty .
By now we all know that most fairy-tales stem from dark origins, but the story of the fabled Sleeping Beauty surpasses all in terms of gore, abuse, and essentially the worst capabilities of humankind. The Disney princess' curse, to sleep until she’s awoken with true love’s kiss, is already a little shaky by today’s standards, but Disney’s version is a far cry from the creepy 17th-century original. Click through to learn the real, twisted tale of Sleeping Beauty. You'll certainly never look at Aurora the same way again.
