  • Microsoft is planning to roll out a monthly Xbox
    subscription service called “Xbox All Access” according to
    Windows Central and The Verge.
  • The subscription would include an Xbox console, Xbox
    Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions — and it would be
    cheaper than buying each item individually.
  • It will reportedly only be available to gamers in the
    US, but if it does well it could be rolled out into new

Microsoft is reportedly planning to roll an Xbox console, Xbox
Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass into one all-inclusive subscription
service called “Xbox All Access.”

The new service was teased by The Verge journalist Tom Warren in
early August.

In his
more recent piece for The Verge
, Warren said that the
subscription is codenamed “Project Largo.”

Central corroborated the story
, and reportedly customers will
be able to get an Xbox One S for about $22 per month over 24
months, or a more powerful Xbox One X for about $35 per month.

In addition to the console, Xbox Live Gold is a subscription that
gives players access to online multiplayer, and subscribers to
Xbox Game Pass gain access to an array of games. Moreover once
the 24 months are fully paid players will own the console

Both Windows Central and Tom Warren report that the service will
initially only be available in the US, but Warren notes that if
the service does well it could be rolled out in other markets.

An Xbox One S currently costs around $250 with a free game. An
Xbox Live Gold yearly subscription currently costs $59.99, and
the Game Pass is $9.99 per month. All purchased individually over
two years, the three add up to just under $610. This means that
over a two-year period the All Access subscription would work out
about $80 dollars cheaper.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Business Insider: “We do not
comment on rumours or speculation.”
