Pricing starts at $19.99 / £17.99 / AU$27 for the All Digital Edition bundle - and given Xbox Games Pass costs half that amount in each territory, it's clear you're getting a decent saving over a two-year period with all the aspects involved. The offer is the same as a year ago, only the upgrade option has changed.
Xbox has taken a leaf out of the mobile phone industry's book and launched a price plan in the UK, US and Australia that includes a console plus Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for one monthly fee. The Xbox One X bundle costs $30.99 / £24.99 / AU$38 per month, with 24 months of Xbox Games Pass Ultimate and a Wireless Xbox One controller.
All Access is essentially an easier way to buy an Xbox, paying for it monthly installments until you've paid it off while still using it - no dropping hundreds you might not have all at once. You can get an Xbox One X, One S, or One S Digital if you're in the United Kingdom or US (Australia players have the option to get a One X or One S with Forza Horizon 4 bundles).
The only catch is that you will have to sign a 24-month contract, but the pricing is very reasonable and Xbox will offer you the ability to upgrade to its next-gen machine, Project Scarlett, after its "holiday 2020" launch.
Of course, you will have to qualify for financing approval through Microsoft partners Citizens Bank in the US; Klarna in the US.; and Telstra in Australia.
United Kingdom shoppers can purchase an Xbox All Access subscription through retailers GAME (in-store) or Smyths Toys (in-person and online), while those in Australia will need to use retailer Telstra (in-person and online).
Xbox All Access is set to launch on October 29 in Australia, November 5 in the United Kingdom, and November 18 in the U.S. Note that you'll have to qualify for a credit account with Citizens Bank in the U.S., Klarna in the United Kingdom, and Telstra in Australia.
The offer ends on December 31, 2019.
