Have you put the idea of buying an Xbox One console? You may have reason to pause.
Microsoft appears to announce a contract subscription service that will pack an Xbox One console with access to Xbox Live and a game pass subscription very soon.
Tom Warren at The Verge had previously suggested a subscription-based service and now Windows Central has gathered more information about the "Xbox All Access" service.
According to Windows Central, the two-year contract will cost around $ 22 per month with an Xbox One S and $ 35 per month for an Xbox One X. In both cases, you can access Xbox Live, which allows users to play and stream games online, and a game pass subscription, which provides a Netflix-like video game download video will be aggregated with the monthly price. At the end of the agreed period, the customer would own the console.
The contracted service will likely see that customers save money, if so little. Usually an Xbox One S, including a game, is sold in the Microsoft Store for $ 299. A two-year pass to Xbox Live will typically set you back $ 120 over two years, and a Game Pass subscription will come in at the same price. Factors all, the total price will be $ 539.
If the reports are accurate, the two-year Xbox One S package will cost around 528 dollars. Not just a mammoth savings, but it would give the flexibility to spread the cost out of two years.
It appears that the service will only be available to US customers.
