Xbox Live grants players access to online services as well as Games with Gold every month.

The Xbox One S plan comes out to a total of nearly $528, whereas buying all three products at retail price would cost $660.

As The Verge reports, sources familiar with Microsoft's plans believe the company is preparing to launch a new Xbox subscription service codenamed Project Largo, but at launch will be called Xbox All Access. "That's more than 100 all-you-can-play games-including highly-anticipated new Xbox One exclusives the day they're released, plus more games added all the time- the fastest, most reliable gaming network and an Xbox One console".

As previously reported, subscribers commit to spending $22 a month for an Xbox One S or $35 for a 1TB Xbox One X console over two years. You keep access to every title as long as you're subscribed.

Xbox All Access name and details were leaked in a recent post from VentureBeat.

Starting at $22/month for 24 months, the subscription program comes with an Xbox One S console, two years of Xbox Live Gold service, and two years of Xbox Game Pass access.

After leaking last week (and a tease this morning), Microsoft has made its latest Xbox service, dubbed "Xbox All Access", official. The price is thought to start at $34.99 per month based on a subscription term of 24 months.

To break it down by price, an Xbox One S retails for $299.99. The service is being promoted as an "all in one" package, giving anyone who signs up two years worth of Xbox Live, Xbox Game Pass, and their choice of either a brand new Xbox One X or Xbox One S.

"We don't have a goal of being the subscription where you get all your content". For new accounts: Rates range from 19.24% to 29.99% variable APR; Minimum Interest Charge is $2; subject to credit approval.

Microsoft is introducing a new way to pay that could potentially provide a boost to its sales by offering an affordable payment option for gamers on a budget. Decker affirms that the goal of the Xbox Game Pass is to serve as an "additive" to the existing ecosystem, not to supplant it. Microsoft doesn't "see a future where subscriptions are dominant".

Promotional Financing Offers may vary and are subject to eligibility requirements.
