Xbox All Access: Console and Subscriptions on a Monthly Payment Plan

Both tiers offer a 24-month period for the Live Gold and Game Pass subscriptions, with 0% April for that same time frame. In addition to the console, you get Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.

Alone, the Xbox One X costs $500 while the subscription services cost $10 per month each. The Xbox One X plan is about $840, only a $20 discount from the $860 if buying it all separately.

Microsoft's Xbox All Access subscription service is available now in the United States for a limited time. "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'".

Program Xbox All Access offers users get Xbox One's for free. Consumers after 24 months of payments will be eligible to keep the Xbox One hardware which they were paying for.

Assuming you live near a Microsoft store and you pass the credit check necessary to utilize Xbox All Access, there's still the question of interest.

Locking new users into long-term subscriptions could help with that engagement and help promote the year-old Games Pass service, which Microsoft says. When "Forza Horizon 4" drops later this year, for example, Game Pass subscribers will get it on day one for no additional charge.

Microsoft's plan lets players get an Xbox One S for $22 per month or the higher-end Xbox One X for $35 a month.

If you compare, the all-access subscription is a pretty good deal.

Xbox One S - $21.99 per month with 0% April for 24 months. With a Dell Preferred Account, you can enjoy an Xbox One with Xbox All Access for no upfront cost, one low monthly price, and 0% April for 24 months^. You can also pay for the entire bundle upfront if you want to avoid the monthly fee or application process.

What is a Dell Preferred account?

It's a smart move, and it may offer a look at a new way that companies like Microsoft and Sony can continually upgrade their game consoles while keeping them affordable for customers. As with all contracts that require a monthly payment, you obviously want to a do a bit of financial planning before you commit.

"When we launched it, we thought an ever-increasing number of titles might be something that was really important to gamers", Decker said to Gi.Biz in an interview.
