Microsoft has launched a new program for its retail stores to get more gamers playing on its Xbox One platform. The new program is called Xbox All Access, and for an affordable monthly fee gamers can get an Xbox One X or One S console, two years of Xbox Games Pass, and two years of an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Before you even question the price of these bundles the math does work out, and the total cost of these items bought separately is more than the total cost of the Xbox All Access program, so just trust us on that. The savings are greater for the Xbox One S option, but both bundles will save you money in the end.
If you opt for the Xbox One X Xbox All Access bundle you will get the 4K-ready console, access to 100 games and all upcoming Microsoft exclusive titles, plus two years of an Xbox Live Gold subscription for $35 a month over a 24 month period. The Xbox One S Xbox All Access bundle gets you the same deal on the Game Pass and Xbox Live, but instead of the One X, you get the less powerful One S console. This bundle will run you $22 a month. You do get to keep the console at the end of the 24 month period too, assuming you complete all required payments.
There is a catch though to get the low monthly price point with zero upfront costs. You will have to apply for a Dell Preferred Account, which is essentially the credit account you’ll enroll into to make the monthly interest free payments. You can also use other payment methods, but those will require you to pay for the bundle in full at the time of your purchase.
The program is now live and only in certain Microsoft retail outlets, so to find out if you live near one, you can check out the official Xbox All Access webpage for more details.
