Microsoft announces ‘Xbox All Access’ with two-year console financing

In addition, the subscription is also strengthened with a Dell Preferred Account feature that assists users in managing their technology purchasing and services. Instead of paying upfront for the new console, agree to pay a monthly fee to get the hardware and an Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold subscription. It's interest-free ... but only for 24 months.

Xbox Live gives users access to Microsoft's online multiplayer services, plus a selection of free games each month with Games with Gold.

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Microsoft Head of Gaming Services Ben Decker and Xbox Game Pass Head of Planning Matt Percy explained the main objective behind the company's subscription service.

For the Xbox One X plan, the price goes up a bit to $35 a month. Microsoft said only "qualified customers" can take part, which means potential Xbox All Access subscribers will first need to pass a credit check. Monthly payments required. Purchase amount divided into 24 substantially equal monthly payments, rounded up to next dollar. Unfortunately, the offer is only exclusive to United States and at Microsoft Stores.

Nearly everyone is used to paying a monthly bill to have the latest mobile handset along with the data / calls package of choosing - but would you be willing to do the same to have the latest games console?

It is interesting that this is a Microsoft special but is being financed through a Dell Preferred Account. When Forza Horizon 4 is released on October 2 you wont have to buy it as a member of Xbox Game Pass, you can simply download it and play it as much as you want.

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. We recently called Xbox Game Pass "the best value in gaming".

Promotional Financing Offers may vary and are subject to eligibility requirements. While that sounds like a lot of money considering that the console itself is less than half of that, it isn't actually a bad deal. Through All Access, you'll pay $839.76, saving about $20.
