    Be great if they released this option to more countries in time for launch. I’d snag one for sure!

    One source says that it's going to be $25 for the $300/month XSS, and $35/month for the $500 XSX. Those are unconfirmed so far.

    Decent deal... but I already have 2 years of GPU on my account, so it doesn't make much sense for me.

    My GPU just ran out last month so I'm down for this deal. I wonder if there is an option to pay it off earlier than the 24 months and are you paying for the console and the 2 year GPU all together (let's say $650) or GPU is just a free addon?

    You pay for the console and 2 years GPU; the cost over the 24 months roughly comes out to the cost of the console + 2 years of GPU over that time (aka it's not going to be $25 a month exactly, but that's a good rounded number for quick comparison). It's just like any other install payment plan you would get on a piece of furniture, a cell phone, a car, etc.; if you want to pay it off early, they can't stop you from doing so.

    So if I did the math right, 35 bucks times 24 months, that's 840 dollars for the Series X before taxes. So if you do it this way you'll end up paying 240+ bucks extra, not for me. I know it includes 2 years of GPU, but I've yet to pay full price for that.

    So if I did the math right, 25 bucks times 24 months, that's 600 dollars. So if you do it this way you'll end up paying 100 bucks extra.

    It's an option I guess, not something I have any interest in though.
    Don’t forget you get game pass ultimate included as well though.

    Yeah, I edited my post since I forgot to add that.

    This whole program is really good to see for those who can't afford the upfront cost ESPECIALLY in the current climate.

    Obviously this is basically a finance deal so you will end up paying more but this feels like a smart move by Xbox.

    It's getting harder to find discount codes, at least right now.

    Places like Amazon or Newegg tend to have deals a few times a year. Been thinking about letting my GPU fade though. I think it's great, but I already have such a giant backlog of games to play, which I keep constantly interrupting to play games that are leaving GP.

    Don't think they can add full extra sub 10.99£ for 24 months + Console Loant in One Tight Price? Just Ad trick! 14 day code maybe, maybe! laugh

    You can't have more than 3 years prepaid Gold. I have 2 years, so I won't be able to redeem the 24 months for another year.

    Plus it's possible to find discount codes (probably easier to find later). I've also found that if you let the subscription expire, you can add a Gold prepaid code, then covert it to GPU for $1. When I made the switch, I bought 3 years for $120 (actually 2.5 years, but this is close enough), then converted it to GPU for $1. 36 months of GPU is $540, so I saved $420 by doing it in advance.

    That basically buys my console.

    The All Access for the XSS doesn't makes sense if you can find GPU @ $12.50/month or less. Since base price is $15, any discount would probably be under $12.50.

    For the XSX, it's an even worse deal. You'd need to find GPU cheaper than $14.17/month. If you can beat that price, then you're saving money by not doing the bundle.

    That said, it's definitely a good deal for people looking to spread out the cost for people who don't go deal shopping for prepaid cards.

    XSS = $300 + ($15 * 24 = $360) = $660.
    $25 * 24 = $600, so you're saving $60 in the long run.

    XSS = $500 + ($15 * 24 = $360) = $860
    $35 * 24 = $840, so you're saving $20 in the long run.

    But again, it doesn't work for me because I can't add 24 months right now, and I'll probably find a deal on GPU later.

    Still have a year on GPU left and after that would probably just sign up for regular GP since I have no need for xCloud

    No way for me. It's definitely a decent move if you haven't got the funds to lump sum the console, but I'd only take this if it were just for the console. I'm still on 3 years of GPU. You've got to figure a slight part of the plan is throwing in gold/game pass for sure so you're getting all this stuff bundled even if you may not necessarily use and/or want it.

    Thanks for all the math, Sasha.

    Just thought I'd add that, at least in Canada, Costco always sells GPU for $1 less than MSRP for a 3 month code ($48.99, instead of $49.99). At least a few times a year, they'll have a 50% off sale for the codes...which is $24.50 for 3 months, which is a little over 8 bucks a month. That's a very good deal. The only catch (other rhan having to be a Costco member...I think) is that you can only buy 3 codes per month.

    I just make it a habit of checking every week as you never know when the sale will be active.

    Costco is a great place to get these codes as: a) their prices are always better AND b) you know the code and the company Costco gets its supply from are legit. CDKEYS has good prices too, but I've heard that their business practices are questionable. I'd hate to mess up my account only to save a few bucks.
