Last summer, Microsoft launched Xbox All Access which included the an Xbox One console, access to over 100 games via Xbox Games Pass, and multiple years of Xbox Live Gold. Xbox All Access gave gamers all of those perks for one monthly price over the course of 24 months. This week, however, Microsoft announced that it is ending the Xbox All Access program on December 31st.
Gamers on the fence about taking advantage of the deal have until the end of the year to make up their minds. Larry Hryb tweeted that an expanded program would be launching in 2019. That tidbit might make some people hold off out of fear that the expanded 2019 program might be better than what Microsoft is currently offering.
Xbox fans - you have until 12/31 to take advantage of the limited-time, in store offer for Xbox All Access, so check with your local MSFT Store for more info. And in case you’re wondering, the program will be expanding in 2019. Stay tuned for more! https://t.co/OqrGHYBTl6— Larry Hryb (@majornelson) December 20, 2018
The Xbox All Access deal only worked if you visited a Microsoft Store near you. Buyers could choose their favorite bundle via Xbox All Access, and then apply for a Dell Prefered Account and leave the store with no upfront cost. Xbox All Access cost $34.99 per month for an Xbox One X console, 24 months of Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold, and had no interest. The same deal with an Xbox One S console was $21.99 monthly.
