UPDATED: Xbox to offer All Access

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - UPDATED: Xbox to offer All Access

There's been leaks of Microsoft offering a All Access program for there Xbox online.

All Access is rumoured to merge both Live and GamePass together and will include S or X consoles for a discounted fee over a yearly subscription model, similar to a mobile phone plan. This will cut the upfront cost of a console and grant access to 100s of games on day one.

This is just a rumour so far and the details can change.

Interesting. Game pass is around $10 a month. xblive around $60 a year.
So both is around $180 for both.

If gamepass automatically included Xbox live that would be an interesting bundling.

Who pays live 60 bucks? I have never paid more than 40 in more than a decade... You can probably find deals for game pass too...

 

 

 

I could see the bundle around120 on discount which is decent. maybe 150$  full price(14.99/month)which pretty cool

The last couple of years, I've not been able to find live deals for less than about $48, then I turn on autopay to get a 13th month free (which I immediately turn back off).  I used to see $40 pretty regularly on Ebay, but I just can't find that anymore.  I remember MS used to offer a steep discount right as your subscription was about to expire, if you hadn't already renewed.  But, I tried that a year or so ago and the offer never came.   

As for Gamepass deals, I've seen 6 months for $30, but I haven't seen that in a while now.  I know MS is running $15 for 3 months right now though.  In general though, it seems to me that MS has tightened up a bit on the deals.  

I'm not, nor have I ever been a Gamepass subscriber.  I've been on the fence several times though, and will probably take the plunge for a few months at some point.  But, if MS were to bundle Live and Gamepass together, and sell a year for $125ish (paid in full, upfront maybe), I'd probably bite.  That would make sense for MS, and it would make sense for me.  

If they don't offer an annual bundle, for example, I'll probably buy a year of live for $50 or so, and subscribe to Gamepass for a few months, which will get them another $45 at most.  So, you're looking at maybe $95 from me, minus whatever cut the (likely) third-party vendor gets when I buy live from them.  MS would be in a much better spot to get $125 from me, and keep all of it.  And, I'd be happy to get a full year of Gamepass.  

Note that there is roughly zero chance that I will ever pay for a MS first-party game outside of Gamepass ever again, unless it is something that I pick up well after release when it is available for next to nothing, if I don't subscribe to Gamepass at the time.  

Finally, if I were MS, whether or not they do anything between now and then, I'd certainly push bundles super hard around the release of Halo 6.  



This is something a lot of people expected

Expected. They have to do something to try and catch the competition. Like everything else so far can't see it working

To be fair, since last E3, it sounds more like they're just trying to remain revelant until their next console launches. Like you said, nothing they did took off, so they probably know they can't catch competition this generation.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Lets keep in mind that these services like GamePass and All Access are most likely not going to be exclusive to the X1. I am sure we will see them cross over there there next generation.

Also theres no such thing as catching up to the competition when it comes to making money. Its not about who sells more its all to do with how to make more money.

Incredible logic you have. This is clearly MS's plan to crush Sony and Nintendo...

These services aren't designed to be a game changer that moves many units. Its more about getting existing users interested in subscription services, a big source of revenue these days.

Everything MS does is perceived as reactive to being behind in sales among fans of other platforms.

I wasn't even thinking about Sony or Nintendo when I saw this thread. The average Xbox probably sees this as a deal to boosts subscriptions, which is logical in my mind given its a revenue generator.
