Xbox All Access program includes upgrade to Project Scarlett option
Microsoft’s Xbox All Access program is returning with an option to upgrade to its next-gen console, the company has announced.
Starting next month in the U.S. and U.K., players will be able to pick up an Xbox One X, Xbox One S, or Xbox One S All-Digital Edition from $19.99 a month for 24 months.
In addition to the console, players get a 24-month membership to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold, and the option to upgrade to Project Scarlett.
“Players in the U.S. and U.K. who purchase an Xbox One console with Xbox All Access have the option to upgrade to Project Scarlett once it’s available Holiday 2020 and they’ve made 18 payments,” Microsoft explains. “Players in Australia can buyout their hardware at any time and upgrade to Project Scarlett once it’s available.”
“In order to participate in the upgrade program when Project Scarlett launches in Holiday 2020, players in the U.S. and U.K. will need to be in good standing with the respective financing partner in their market, purchase Project Scarlett with a new Xbox All Access purchase from the same retail partner where they joined the program, and trade-in the console originally purchased with Xbox All Access,” Microsoft adds. “Terms and conditions apply, including an upgrade fee for players upgrading from the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition to Project Scarlett.”
Microsoft also mentions that players who purchase an Xbox One X via Xbox All Access in the U.S. and U.K. before December 31st, 2019 will have the option to upgrade to Project Scarlett after 12 months, instead of 18.
Xbox All Access will be available in the U.K. from November 5th and in the U.S. from November 18th at participating retailers. Retailers include GAME and Smyths Toys in the U.K. and online from Amazon in the U.S.
