Xbox All Access was one of the best deals that doesn’t get much attention. The all inclusive service essentially allows you to lease a console for a monthly fee. To sweeten the pot, you also get access to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass. It really is a no brainer, but the concept is so foreign for console gamers that it doesn’t get much traction. In the end, it’s like getting a console if you sign up for Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass.
I’m pretty open to new ways of gaming, jumping on to digital disruption very early, and even I was weary of “leasing” a console. However, Microsoft is sweetening the pot yet again.
This is a crazy good deal, and I may sell my Xbox One X and use the funds to subsidize the cost of the program. Early adopters who are eyeballing Project Scarlett can upgrade after making 12 payments, provided you have good enough credit.
