Microsoft has a new monthly financing programme for the Xbox One called Xbox All Access, according to a report by Venturebeat which links to a blog post over at the Xbox website that's not live yet. As previously revealed, Xbox All Access enables anyone looking to buy an Xbox console in the United States to do so with no upfront cost and low monthly payments with no interest for two years.

For the Xbox One S plan, you'll be paying a paltry $22 per month, which nets you an Xbox One S console (which you can keep in perpetuity, after the 24 months are up) as well as the aforementioned Xbox services.

Microsoft says the console-as-a-service subscription can result in significant savings if the Xbox One S is opted for.

For the Xbox One X plan, the price goes up a bit to $35 a month. Any potential buyers should consider both before diving in. There's also no interest applied so long as the purchase is paid in full within 24 months.

Minimum monthly payments are required and are equal to 3% of the New Balance or $20, whichever is greater, as shown on the monthly billing statement. For new accounts, April rates are variable and can range from 19.24% to 29.99%, and your particular rate is based on your credit.

In order to sign up for Xbox All Access, you have to visit a Microsoft Store in person. In other words, outside of what's likely a 30-day return policy, you're stuck with this if you change your mind later.

There was a lot of excitement a couple years ago, when Microsoft announced Project Scorpio, celebrating a console that would offer support for 4K gaming and virtual reality.

Both options include the option to forego any upfront costs and pay 0 percent April for 24 months. Xbox Game Pass is something that Microsoft seems to pouring a lot of resources into, though, so it's not surprising to see it feature in these packages.
