Microsoft could be working on a subscription service that bundles Xbox Live, Xbox Game Pass, and even an Xbox One console for a monthly fee.
Windows Central reports that Project Largo could be Microsoft's latest subscription service which offers members Xbox Game Pass, Xbox Live, and an Xbox One X console for $34.99 a month over 24 months. A different bundle with an Xbox One S could be offered for $22 a month. So basically, a payment plan basically like how phones are sold.
Microsoft could roll the service out at Microsoft retail stores, but it's reported that Microsoft is working with PC makers to offer the bundle at other retailers. The service will only be offered in the United States, though the service could expand to other markets if successful.
The Xbox One X retails for $499.99 upfront, which is less than what 24 months paying $34.99 will get you, but the cost of Xbox Live ($60/year) and Xbox Game Pass ($9.99/month) bring the total cost of the subscription up to par (You'll save about $20 once the 24 months end).
Microsoft is also rumored to be working on two new consoles to succeed the Xbox One. Codenamed Scarlet, one new of the devices is said to be a cheaper, streaming-only device that will stream all of its games to the console.
With Xbox looking at streaming for the future, and subscription services like Xbox Game Pass currently offered Microsoft appears focused on delivering games to players in a variety of flexible plans. Even services like Backwards Compatibility and PC cross-play further the freedom of the Xbox service. We'll have to wait until there's an official confirmation for the new Xbox One console subscription plan.
