Microsoft inroduces Xbox All Access, a monthly subscription plan for Xbox consoles

Games with Gold September 2018

This looks to be another attempt at that, but with no upfront cost and a larger monthly charge. The Xbox All Access is sweetened with an Xbox One console, Xbox Game Pass, and an Xbox Live Gold subscription.

Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Microsoft Head of Gaming Services Ben Decker and Xbox Game Pass Head of Planning Matt Percy explained the main goal behind the company's subscription service. That is a total of about $860, whereas if you sign up and do the Xbox All Access Program, it would run at about $840- which is a little bit cheaper.

The 0% April offer for 24 months is only available until December 31, 2018 and is apparently only available to existing Dell Preferred Account users, according to the program's terms.

Serena, Venus to meet for 30th time at US Open
The reason this match comes so early is that their rankings are not what they've been in the past. Two-time champion Venus beat Italy's Camila Giorgi 6-4 7-5.

Back in June, Microsoft's chief marketing officer of gaming, Mike Nichols, revealed that the company had abandoned plans to release any virtual or mixed reality headsets for its Xbox One consoles. Xbox Game Pass also offers day one access to first party title. The combined savings over a 2 year period is only about US$20 in this case but it does offer the incentive of enjoying a much more powerful console at an affordable monthly fee. And so, with all of this in consideration, it will be interesting to see if Xbox All Access' bundle of the aforementioned features and services will be a success with subscribers.

Today, Microsoft made its Xbox All Access announcement live on the official Xbox website, but it was taken down quickly clearly signaling someone jumped the gun.

Editor's Note: We've updated this story with availability information from Microsoft. Customers can opt for the $34.99 per month option, which comes with a new Xbox One X 1TB console; or the $21.99 per month one that includes an Xbox One S 1TB console.

Iran, Syria Sign Military Cooperation Deal
So instead of an epic naval and aerial clash, expect Russian Federation to stick to its real weapon for modern war: propaganda. According to him, Damascus condemned the use of chemical weapons no matter the circumstances and considered it to be immoral.

Xbox One S - $21.99 per month with 0% April for 24 months. There is no upfront cost and you are required to pay as you go. This makes Xbox All Access Subscription very tempting indeed. After that, the Dell Preferred Account plan can charge up to 29.99% April.

Microsoft courted partners over the past couple years to create games for a virtual reality headset designed to work with the Xbox video game console, according to people familiar with the matter. Obviously, that first step is going to be a bit of a hurdle, and for those Europeans out there now planning a trip to NYC to take advantage of this, I'd probably assume you need to be a U.S. resident, but feel free to report back if it works. Do you think this is a good way to pay for a console, or are you okay with the tried-and-true method of paying for everything upfront?
