Every once in a while, Microsoft offers a means to get an Xbox One via an installment plan. It gives people a chance to pay a monthly fee to get a certain bundle, as well as things like Xbox Live Gold and such. Usually, it ends up being more than it would be if someone had waited until an event like Black Friday, but it is another option for people who want to buy during peak times. Now, the newest versions of the bundles offer Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and other benefits.
If someone is looking for either Xbox One S model or an Xbox One X, the new alternatives give people options and instant libraries. Plus, each one helps pave the way for Project Scarlett.
The cheapest Xbox All Access plan is now $19.99 for 24 months, coming out to about $479.76. It gives people an Xbox One S all-digital console, but now also includes 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and an 18-month console upgrade option. How that works is, if you’ve made at least 12 payments on an Xbox All Access Xbox One S bundle, you could then upgrade to the next Xbox. Of course, that also means purchasing another 24-month Project Scarlett Xbox All Access plan. All told, it’ll cost $479.76 when everything ends, while an Xbox One S All-Digital is normally $249 and 24-months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate would be $359.76, which would work out to about $608.76, so it all works out.
The other two options offer a different consoles and some slightly altered options. The Xbox One S bundle is $22.99 per month for 24 months, coming out to $551.76. It gives people the standard version of the console, 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and the 18-month Project Scarlett upgrade option. The Xbox One X gives the system and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, as you would expect, but its console upgrade option is only 12 months long.
