Xbox All Access was introduced years ago as a way for customers to buy an Xbox One without having to pay the full price upfront. It allowed them to pay a monthly cost, while also getting access to Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. With the impending release of Xbox Series X and Series S on November 10, Microsoft has announced that Xbox All Access will be offered for both consoles at launch.

The Series S is capable of 1440p at up to 120 FPS, DirectX ray tracing, and variable refresh rate among other things. It comes with a custom 512GB SSD, which you’ll need to store all of your games and content as it does not feature a disc drive. The Xbox Series X is the more powerful of the two, boasting 12.16 teraflops, a 1TB SSD, and 16GB of GDDR6 SDRAM.

The Series S will launch for $299, while the Series X goes for $499. Preorders will go live on September 22 ahead of both consoles’ November 10 launch. However, if you don’t want to pay the entire cost upfront, Xbox All Access will let you pay your next-gen console off in monthly increments.

What is Xbox All Access?

Xbox All Access will be available for both the Xbox Series X and Series S. This means you’ll pay a monthly cost over 24 months instead of the entire price upfront. Both console plans will come with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes the Game Pass library on both Xbox One and PC, xCloud game streaming, Xbox Live Gold, and an EA Play subscription.

How much does Xbox All Access cost?

Xbox All Access costs $25 per month for 24 months for Xbox Series S and $35 per month for 24 months for Xbox Series X.

Considering Xbox All Access includes Game Pass Ultimate, you’re actually saving money going this route. At $25 a month over two years for the Xbox Series S, you’ll pay $600 total. Normally, the console costs $299 and two years of Game Pass Ultimate costs $360–that’s a $59 savings. For the Xbox Series X, you’ll pay $35 a month over two years–that’s $840 total. The Series X costs $499, and if you add on the $360 Game Pass Ultimate cost, you’re still saving $19.

Microsoft has already announced that if you’re an All Access subscriber, you can upgrade to the Xbox Series X after you’ve reached 18 payments on your current contract. This gets you the Xbox Series X with a new Xbox All Access contract after trading in your original Xbox One.

When can I sign up for Xbox All Access?

Microsoft hasn’t revealed exactly when you can sign up for Xbox All Access, but considering preorders go live on September 22, we’d expect it to be available then.
