Xbox All Access is now available in New Zealand thanks to a partnership between Spark and Microsoft, giving new players the option of picking up a new Xbox One console on an interest-free monthly payment plan.
Xbox All Access includes an Xbox One console and a two-year Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, paid off over 24 months. There are two options available, an Xbox One S bundle for $32 a month, and an Xbox One X bundle for $39 a month. The chosen console will be delivered using contactless delivery, with a card inside to redeem for the Xbox Game Pass subscription.
This actually ends up being cheaper all-up than it would be to buy an Xbox One and Game Pass Ultimate separately, at least at their respective RRPs. Xbox All Access works out to a total cost of $768 for the Xbox One S bundle and $936 for the Xbox One X bundle; Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is $19.95 a month ($478.80 for 24 months), and at their standard prices, Xbox One S and Xbox One X are $449 and $599, respectively.
Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold into one subscription. Members get access to a rotating selection of over 100 games (including Xbox Game Studios titles on launch day, like the upcoming Minecraft Dungeons), online multiplayer, exclusive Xbox Store discounts, and Games with Gold.
Xbox All Access is available in New Zealand to new and existing Spark customers on $39.99 and above consumer Pay Monthly plans and broadband plans with a monthly data allowance of 600GB or more (including Unplan). It’s already available in Australia, the US, and the UK (through different partners, of course!)
