Xbox to Launch Subscription with Console, Xbox Live and Game Pass

Microsoft Announces Xbox All Access

The deal will be available until New Year's Eve and is powered by Dell financing. There's a second, more expensive tier as well, which comes with the aforementioned $500 Xbox One X console, two years of Xbox Live Gold service, and two years of Xbox Game Pass Access - priced at $35/month for 24 months. It's interest-free ... but only for 24 months.

So in total it actually works out cheaper to take the Xbox All Access deal - that is as long as you want the Game Pass and Xbox Live - if you don't want these then it is obviously much cheaper to buy the console outright. The Xbox One X package will set you back $840, while buying everything separately would cost $860. Microsoft's monthly payment scheme through Xbox All Access offers the same console and subscriptions for $130 less over the span of two years. "As Xbox division chief: "[Market] share is important, but more important than share is 'are we gaining new customers, are they buying games, are they engaged in the service'". You may remember the Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle, which cost $99 but required a $15 per month subscription for two years. You can find out more over at the official Microsoft store.

All we need now is for Microsoft to re-post the full details along with a launch date.

Do you get to keep the hardware?

Microsoft has added two tiers to Xbox All Access - $21.99 (or approx Rs 1,540) for the Xbox One S and $34.99 (or approx Rs 2,500). This makes Xbox All Access Subscription very tempting indeed. With that in mind, you should only sign up for Xbox All Access if you're sure you can pay it off within the allotted 24 months, otherwise, you're likely far better off saving up the money and purchasing everything upfront.

It is interesting that this is a Microsoft special but is being financed through a Dell Preferred Account.

Xbox All Access represents a tremendous opportunity for Microsoft to fold more gamers into its ecosystem, but I'm interested in seeing how much variance there is between its monthly payments, ie how much low-credit gamers will have to pay per month.

Microsoft's Game Pass is a service that offers fantastic value.
