Update: Microsoft has officially announced Xbox All Access with a store page set up for customers to find their local Microsoft Store to purchase one of the subscription packages.
As previously revealed, the subscription will offer Xbox Live, Xbox Game Pass, and either an Xbox One S or Xbox One X with pricing beginning at $21.99 per month (for the Xbox One S bundle).
All of this is done via a Dell Preferred Account which allows customers to get the financing for these bundles.
This, of course, offers customers to easily get an Xbox console and make the most of all of the services in which the console offers. Xbox Live grants players access to online services as well as Games with Gold every month. Xbox Game Pass, on the other hand, offers players the chance to get instant access to some of the console’s biggest titles, from State of Decay to Sea of Thieves without having to purchase.
Original Story: Last week rumors surfaced for Xbox All Access, a new subscription package coming from Microsoft that’ll make acquiring an Xbox One much, much easier.
Xbox All Access, or Project Largo as it’s codenamed, will offer subscription packages to consumers which will bundle together Xbox Live Gold, Xbox Game Pass, and either an Xbox One S or an Xbox One S. Sources speaking with The Verge also confirmed that the pricing will start at $34.99 and will last for 24 months.
In addition to Xbox console bundles, sources also claim that Microsoft is talking with PC manufacturers to offer similar packages, presumably with pre-built PCs.
These packages will be available from Microsoft’s retail stores with the initial offering being made in the United States. If successful, the company plans to roll the bundles out to other markets in the future.
It’s definitely an interesting concept, however, if Microsoft is offering PC bundles too, is there really any need to get an Xbox One, especially considering exclusive titles are also now being available on Xbox Play Anywhere.
