US and UK users can choose between three console and Game Pass Ultimate bundles which are paid off over two years: Xbox One S All Digital ($19.99/£17.99 per month), Xbox One S ($22.99/£19.99 per month), and Xbox One X ($30.99/£24.99 per month).
Microsoft says Xbox All Access, which will be available in the US, UK and Australia until December 31, saves players over $100/£100 compared to purchasing the hardware and subscription separately.
The All Access bundles also include various options for players to upgrade their chosen console to Microsoft’s next generation Xbox, Project Scarlett, following its late 2020 launch.
Xbox All Access will be available from October 29 in Australia (in-person and online at Telstra), November 5 in the UK (in-store at Game or in-person and online at Smyths Toys) and November 18 in the US (online from Amazon). Some details of the offer vary by country.
Microsoft announced in June that Xbox Scarlett will launch holiday 2020 alongside Halo Infinite. The company said at the time: “When you can move through worlds without waiting for screens to load, that speed, that performance is what the next generation’s about.”
Xbox One’s October update introduced new family settings designed to balance screen time, in addition to wish list notifications and Mixer viewing improvements.
Xbox Live had a record number of monthly active users during Microsoft’s first financial quarter ended September 30, 2019, according to the platform holder.
