Microsoft just launched Xbox All Access, a novel way to buy an Xbox console together with its related services without putting down any up-front money. For a single monthly fee you get an Xbox console, two years of Xbox Game Pass (more than 100 games, including Microsoft Studios’ big hits), and two years of Xbox Live Gold (the multiplayer gameplay service and a couple of free older games each month).
The costs are reasonable: you pay $22 a month for an Xbox One S, or $35 a month for an Xbox One X. The One S bundle saves you a decent chunk of change, the One X saves you only a little. But the big advantage is that it gets people into the Xbox ecosystem, hardware and services, with no upfront cost.
