Microsoft Officially Announces Xbox All Access

Microsoft Announces Xbox All Access

Xbox All Access bundles a console, Live, and Game Pass for 24 monthly payments

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).

The total cost of "Xbox All Access" over a 24 month period is $527.76.

Microsoft says the console-as-a-service subscription can result in significant savings if the Xbox One S is opted for. If you bow out before the contract is up, you'll owe Microsoft the remainder of the cost for the system ... which could be even more than if you had purchased the console and the services separately. Additionally, it won't be available forever, so if you want to get a new Xbox One console, be quick about it. Attempting to end the contract early means paying Microsoft the outstanding monthly payments owed in order to keep your Xbox. If you have been waiting to pick up an Xbox One, will this cause you to go out and get one? With its big rival going down this route, why hasn't Microsoft released a VR device for the Xbox One consoles? These days, the video games industry seems much more focused on 4K gaming, HDR and visual fidelity than the immersive but also isolating experiences provided by VR. This saves you $20 over two years.

Xbox All Access is a good deal, but there are some things that you need to consider before you sign up. The price is thought to start at $34.99 per month based on a subscription term of 24 months.

When Microsoft does return to the idea of VR on Xbox, the company wants sleeker designs, wireless technology and higher resolution displays to be more readily available.

Serena Williams Responds To Catsuit Ban Again At US Open
So when it came to the US Open , everyone expected her to go back to "traditional" tennis gear but not Serena. The American third seed, treated for blisters in the second set, won 4-6 7-5 6-2 in two hours and 46 minutes.

With its Dell Preferred Account, users can take advantage of the Xbox All Access subscription with no upfront cost and 0 percent April for 24 months. After that, the Dell Preferred Account plan can charge up to 29.99% April.

Meanwhile, Game Pass opens the door to a huge library of downloadable games from a growing list of hundreds of original Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One titles.

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.
