Xbox All Access: What you need to know

Getting access to Microsoft's Xbox gaming platform has become easier than it has ever been. Microsoft in a blog post stated.

Can I return or cancel Xbox All Access after purchase? There is no upfront cost and you are required to pay as you go.

Microsoft lived up to its release window claims, and the Xbox One X is certainly capable of powering games at 4K resolution. Users would be able to cancel their subscriptions after two years and keep the hardware.

0% April for 24 months. It sounded too good to be true, but, it turns out Xbox All Access is the real deal. With the Xbox All Access Program, it will net around $528, which is a huge saving compared to the Xbox One X deal. However, Microsoft insists that the Xbox Game Pass was never meant to replace the traditional process of purchasing games by becoming a Netflix of sorts for games.

Microsoft has added two tiers to Xbox All Access - $21.99 (or approx Rs 1,540) for the Xbox One S and $34.99 (or approx Rs 2,500). Those who subscribe are not leasing a gaming console; they are paying for it over an extended period of time, the same way users pay for phones when buying them from mobile retailers.

This is a pretty smart way try and get people into the Xbox ecosystem. The Microsoft Limited Warranty covers the Xbox console for one year (90 days for the controller and accessories).

You can purchase an Xbox All Access subscription by visiting one of Microsoft's retail stores and applying for a Dell Preferred Account, used to finance the purchase. As with all contracts that require a monthly payment, you obviously want to a do a bit of financial planning before you commit.

Instead of breaking the bank to buy a pricey console, Xbox All Access lets potential customers start playing right away while agreeing to pay over the span of 24 months.

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could get a new console without having to buy for it upfront or be obligated to have a credit card to charge?

"When we launched it, we thought an ever-increasing number of titles might be something that was really important to gamers", Decker said to Gi.Biz in an interview.
