If rumors are to be believed, then Microsoft could soon be introducing a new subscription called Xbox All Access, which will offer the cheapest way to get access to an Xbox console, Xbox Live and Xbox game Pass. Codenamed Project Largo, the new service will come with a monthly fee for two years, after which the user will own the Xbox console.

According to Windows Central, Xbox All Access will be an US exclusive service. The subscription will be available for both Xbox One S and Xbox One X for a monthly fee of $22 (approximately Rs 1,500), and $35 (approximately Rs 2,500) respectively.

At the moment, an Xbox One S in US costs roughly around $230, while a one-year Xbox Live subscription comes for an additional $60 and Xbox Game Pass comes for $10 a month. Put all together it will cost the user $590, which is slightly more than $528 the Xbox All Access will cost by the end of two years. While it’s not a big difference, the latter also provides more flexibility in terms of payment.

Besides owning the Xbox console, users will also get the benefits of Xbox Live and Xbox Pass, which will give them access to stream games online and a video game library to download new titles respectively, which sounds great.
