Microsoft announces Xbox All Access

24-month payment program gets users an Xbox One, Xbox Live, and Game Pass sans up-front payment

Microsoft has announced a new program that will sell Xbox One S's and X's with Game Pass and Live for a monthly payment, rather than the hefty up-front cost of an Xbox.

The program, called Xbox All Access, can be purchased in the US only from Microsoft Stores for a monthly payment over two years. It will cost either $21.99 per month for an Xbox One S, or $34.99 per month for an Xbox One X, both at 0% APR for 24 months. There is no up-front cost for either system.

Those who purchase an Xbox through All Access will also receive 24 months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold.

All Access will not be a permanent program, and is available for a "limited time, in store only."
