Microsoft has announced that it’s reintroducing Xbox All Access, a monthly payment plan that includes an Xbox One console, and 24-month membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate which includes all the benefits of Xbox Live Gold; you pay for all of this in 24 monthly payments.
Also, Xbox All Access now includes an all-new upgrade option for the next Xbox console, Project Scarlett. So, if you buy an Xbox One console with Xbox All Access, you will be able to upgrade it to Project Scarlett when it launches in 2020.
This relaunch will start in the US, the UK and Australia with plans to make Xbox All Access available to players all around the world.
Xbox All Access will be available in Australia on October 29, in the UK on November 5, and in the US on November 18.
“Players in the U.S. and U.K. who purchase an Xbox One console with Xbox All Access have the option to upgrade to Project Scarlett once it’s available Holiday 2020 and they’ve made 18 payments. Players in Australia can buyout their hardware at any time and upgrade to Project Scarlett once it’s available,” Microsoft wrote in its post on Xbox Wire.
Moreover, Microsoft added: “We realize buying a console is an investment and some players are waiting to make the jump to the next generation with Project Scarlett when it launches in Holiday 2020 alongside “Halo Infinite”. This is why as a limited time offer this holiday season, players in the U.S. and U.K. who purchase an Xbox One X with Xbox All Access through December 31, 2019, have the option to upgrade to the next Xbox console in as few as 12 months and once Project Scarlett has officially launched.”
In order to be able to get Xbox All Access, you will have to go to an Xbox's select retailer, choose the console you want, and pass a financial check-up with an Xbox’s financing partner in order to finish the process and bring the Xbox console home.
Also, when Project Scarlett launches and the time for the upgrade comes, players in the US and UK will need to be in good standing with the respective financing partner in their market, and buy Project Scarlett with a new Xbox All Access purchase from the same retail partner where they joined the program. Furthermore, they will have to trade-in the console which they bought with Xbox All Access. And there will be an upgrade fee for players upgrading from the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition to Project Scarlett.
