Microsoft Announces ‘All Access’ Xbox For Gamers On Low Budget


If you ever wanted an Xbox, but for some reason, you couldn’t buy it — maybe the price was too high, or you were not sure if you’d stash it away in a corner with other stuff.

Fortunately, Microsoft has a special treat for you in case you want to get into console gaming right away. The company has launched a 2-year program called “Xbox all access.”

What is Microsoft Xbox All Access?

Similar to iPhone contracts, Xbox all access is a subscription service where you can sign up for a two-year contract and upgrade to a new Xbox when the service ends.

Instead of buying the consoles and game subscriptions individually, the latest plan from Microsoft offers an all-inclusive monthly subscription with no upfront cost.

How does it work?

There are two bundles; One with Xbox One X and another with Xbox One S. Both of them include free Xbox Game Pass, and Xbox Live gold, i.e., access to over 100 games.

While the Xbox One X bundle starts at $34.99/ month, Xbox One S bundle begins with mere $21.99/ month.

If you compare, the all-access subscription is a pretty good deal. An Xbox one X costs around $500, while Xbox Live is $60 per year and Game Pass is $10 per month.

It is important to note that All-access from Microsoft is financing plan and not a leasing program. Apart from that, the service is only available to US consumers.

Also, bear in mind that if you ever consider breaking or leaving the contract in-between, you are liable to pay the remaining cost of the hardware.
