Microsoft's new program is credit financed via a Dell Preferred Account, whose terms and monthly payments depend on an applicant's creditworthiness.

There is no upfront cost, and the subscription period ends after 24 months.

Microsoft at the end of August, will launch a Xbox All Access, aimed at expanding the user base of the Xbox One or Xbox One X to provide buyers with the easiest way to get a modern game consoles, according to Windows Central.

Both plans offer savings over buying the console and services piecemeal: The Xbox One S plan costs approximately $530 across 24 months, while buying each piece individually would cost almost $650; the Xbox One X plan costs approximately $840 across 24 months, while buying each piece individually would cost approximately $860. Now a report suggests Microsoft might be looking at a similar offering for its Xbox One ecosystem. The subscription option is cheaper than the usual separate purchase of a console and both online services.

Since the latest generation of consoles began back in 2013, Microsoft has been left behind after the slow release of the Xbox One, which was pushed as a center piece of entertainment rather than the game system people wanted.

The total cost is $660 or $27.50 a month if you were to divide it by 24.

The Xbox One S bundle includes the console, which supports 4K video content, and HDR for improved clarity and color reproduction on HDR-compatible televisions, for $21.99 per month. For one low monthly price, you get all three of those together. You can also get 20% off purchases of any Game Pass titles to keep forever (games rotate on and off the list sort of like Netflix).

It's a payment structure that will be familiar to any consumer who's ever signed up for a two-year phone plan allowing them to pay for the phone in installments.
