As previously revealed, the subscription will offer Xbox Live, Xbox Game Pass, and either an Xbox One S or Xbox One X with pricing beginning at $21.99 per month (for the Xbox One S bundle). That subscription provides immediate access to the hardware, which subscribers can keep after the subscription ends, as well as Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Games Pass, which normally cost about $15/month combined on their own.
Doing the math, the Xbox All Access Subscription for the Xbox One S will cost you $528 in total. It does help that Xbox All Access gives you access to many different Xbox One games right out of the box without paying any extra money.
Xbox did not make an announcement about the new subscription service at Gamescom in Germany earlier this month, perhaps because the service is expected to initially be available in the U.S. It is not known if Xbox will roll this service out beyond the United States. Other than that, the Xbox All Access Subscription is only valid till the end of the year provided that the supplies last that long.
Microsoft's new subscription service, titled Xbox All Access, was announced today by Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb on Twitter.

Wuerl, however, has also been accused of helping to protect abusive priests when he served as Pittsburgh's bishop between 1988 and 2006.
In offering All Access, Microsoft is testing a totally new way to buy game consoles that offers a peek at one potential future for game consoles. For 24 months that would come to US$840 - less than if you bought them separately. The One X option saves about $140 off the full price.
Now according to the plan, if you opt for an Xbox One X, it will set you back 35 Dollars per month, however, Xbox One S will set you back a mere 22 USD per month. For one low monthly price, you get all three of those together. From there, you can choose the bundle that best suits you, at which point you'll have to sign up for a Dell Preferred Account (DPA).

In any case, this is certainly an interesting approach to selling a console, and it does offer some flexibility in terms of how you pay. Assuming you can afford it (and, obviously, that you actually want an Xbox One), this might not be a bad way to buy a new console.
In comparison, Xbox All Access would cost an accessible $35 a month. Piecemeal, including the $499 console, you can expect to pay $858.74. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
