Microsoft has announced Xbox All Access, an intriguing new offer for anyone interested in getting an Xbox One.
Instead of dropping hundreds of dollars on a new console all at once, Xbox All Access gives people the opportunity to instead do a monthly payment plan for two years. Opting for this two-year payment plan gets you not only a shiny new console but also subscriptions to both Xbox Live Gold, which lets you play online and includes some free games each month, and Xbox Game Pass, their Netflix-like service with over 100 games to choose from.
You can find more information on the offering below, including how much it will cost.

For anyone interested in the math, the Xbox One S option equals out to a total of $527.76 and the Xbox One X option equals out to $839.76 total.
The Xbox One S is currently available to purchase on Microsoft’s website for $299, while the Xbox One X is available for $499. If you’re paying the full monthly price for Game Pass, two years would cost you $239.76, while two years of Gold costs $119.98.
At the full prices it would cost a total of $658.74 for an Xbox One S plus two years of Gold and Game Pass, while an Xbox One X plus the subscriptions would cost $858.74.
It’s not for everyone, especially if you have no interest in Game Pass or playing online. But if you don’t have a few hundred dollars to spare and are confident you can afford the monthly payments, it’s a pretty decent deal Microsoft is offering.
