Forums - Gaming Discussion - Will Xbox All Access Finally take off with the Xbox Series X and Game Pass

MS All access allows you to get a new Xbox Series X including Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for 20 bucks a month on a 2 year contract.  That can be very enticing coming coming this holiday time as you get a latest console, with all of MS first party games including the others in game pass for the low entry price of 20 bucks.  I can definitely see this taking off if MS promote it correctly.

Well hell. I'm already paying $15 a month just for game pass. Might as well toss in a new console for $5 more.

Source? We don't even have a price on the XsX. That would be around $480 or so. 75% of which (price wise) would go toward the game pass.

There is zero chance that carries over day one to a new console.

  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

This came from Phill Himself in an interview not to long ago.  I will find it.



I replaced the link with a better one.

I currently also have game pass so this looks extremely enticing since I already have money for one Console so not I probably will get both with X Series X on subscription.

This is all kinds of complicated. Lots of complications making me think not many will pick this up.

"After 18 months with either of these two plans, you will be able to upgrade to Project Scarlett." So sounds like you have to invest in the previous plan to get a new plan?
At which point you'll be paying off the last 6 months, and then another 24 months.

Also 18 months from November 18th 2019. So May of 2021?

"Additionally, Xbox One S All-Digital Edition subscribers will have to pay a $20 upgrade fee to offset the difference in cost between the two consoles." and
"In the fine print, Microsoft states that "new contract, terms, and pricing apply" for upgrades. "
So the same may carry over and another cost will be required to get the plan?

And would mean you'd be missing out on any discounts of the console or the Xbox game plan for 24 months.

For XBSX this seems way to good to be true, but MS does need to go overboard if they want to gain back a reasonable amount of market share against SNY next gen.

Is it possible that Lockhart is part of Project Scarlett? MS takes your XB1X and gives you Lockhart which is a slight upgrade, as a 'like for like' direct transition to next gen? Perhaps if you want to upgrade to the XBSX, you have to pay an extra up front fee or higher monthly payments? This would make more sense to me. I could totally see this.

Won’t be that cheap, at $20 a month it’s a no brainer.

$25 for Xbox One X, $24 for Xbox One S, and $20 for Xbox One S-all digital.

They never mentioned what it would cost for a Xbox Series X. The $20 pr month is for the "current" gen Xbox One S-all digital. Last edited by JRPGfan - on 09 April 2020

According to the link, it is $31 for the Xbox one x. Then there is an option to upgrade to a new plan with the xsx when it comes out. I’m guessing the new plan would be more, probably $40. The $20 plan is just for the Xbox one s. So... no. I don’t think it will take off anymore than it is now. It’s still just a slightly subsidized plan that forces you to pay for a subsciption for 2 years at full price. You can generally find just as much savings if not more by getting deals on the subscription when available.
