Microsoft Launching $22 Xbox Console Subscription Service

Xbox One X

There is no upfront cost for this, simply a monthly bill. Microsoft says that there are no upfront costs involved and no matter the plan you choose, a brand-new Xbox One console is fully yours without any hassles of renting or leasing.

The Xbox One S plan comes out to a total of nearly $528, whereas buying all three products at retail price would cost $660. You've got your choice of the Xbox One S or Xbox One X, but you can only get this deal in a Microsoft Store. There's little doubt the up-front cost of consoles is high, especially when you look at the Xbox One X which still goes for the $500 that it was launched at nearly a year ago.

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

Xbox All Access, a bold move by Microsoft to attract non-Xbox users and other platform game lovers or those who think gaming is expensive because of the expensive rigs and games itself.

Microsoft has officially announced Xbox All Access, the monthly payment-powered subscription plan that bundles together an Xbox One console, Xbox Live, and Xbox Game Pass for between $21.99 and $34.99 a month. Paying $528 over two years for the lower-tier All Access plan would actually cost less than buying then spending $360 on subscriptions (for a total of $590).

In addition to shifting some Xbox One stock, we expect the new payment model is also acting as a toe in the water for Microsoft's next console, codenamed Scarlet. For 24 months that would come to US$840 - less than if you bought them separately. The Xbox One X version only saves about $20. Nevertheless, it's a cost-effective way to get on board with a console generation that will probably last for another, hmm, two years. The prices are $22 for a One S, and $35 for a One X. After the two year period, you own the console outright. As I mentioned up above, the amount you will pay each month will depend on the console you get. For new accounts: Rates range from 19.24% to 29.99% variable APR; Minimum Interest Charge is $2; subject to credit approval.

DELL PREFERRED ACCOUNT (DPA): Offered to us residents by WebBank, Member FDIC, who determines qualifications for and terms of credit. You can also pay for the entire bundle upfront if you want to avoid the monthly fee or application process.
