    We have 2 Microsoft stores in Toronto alone here.

    My Xbox one s was 200 and I bough a 2 year memberships for 120 dollars making it 320

    No where near 658$ this is a rip off

    Bad credit is your fault not Microsoft

  5. William Martinez on April 3, 2020 at 5:25 pm

    I understand there’s a credit check so what if you don’t have any credit you don’t have bad credit but you don’t have any because you pay for everything in cash except for your bank debit card

  6. EnNombreDeLaCiencia ! on April 3, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    The math are wrong. $35*24 = $840. It’s just a $19 saving.

  7. Anderson on April 3, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    LOl! Bring ’em!

  8. Joel Thoman on April 3, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    However if you like a bunch of the games offered, and live near a bunch of Microsoft stores, this is an awesome deal.

  9. SoSickRick on April 3, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    I would say this is less about savings and more about having the ability for people to own the console without needing to drop $300-$500.

  10. Creativboi on April 3, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    I would have done it, but I live in Australia…

  11. Eric Pereira on April 3, 2020 at 5:30 pm

    Xbox Gamepass is god!

  12. young mouss on April 3, 2020 at 5:31 pm

    There are always good deals on ebay and just use your own credit card to purchase one

  13. Marwan Ghoneim on April 3, 2020 at 5:33 pm

    is it available in the UK

  14. TheHawaiianc on April 3, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    they this for 360 just before xbox one came out.. i dont think there testing they mite be doing it because the next gen mite come out next year.. they can get you for changing plans

  15. brian prue on April 3, 2020 at 5:35 pm

    If I can finance this with my low credit score then most people can. I went in thinking I would be denied and by my surprise I was approved.

  16. MCseanalot12 on April 3, 2020 at 5:36 pm

    its on amazon now

  17. Chad Furlong on April 3, 2020 at 5:37 pm

    So, the caveat to the deal of bundling a console, Xbox Live and GamePass is that it bundles a console, Xbox Live and GamePass? I know her bigger frustration is with the Microsoft Store thing, but she made a pretty weak point about how you pay for the bundle even if you don’t always utilize all elements of the bundle. It’s like how I make car payments, but sometimes I take an Uber or public transit, or how I pay rent but sometimes go on vacation. It’s a ridiculous criticism.

  18. D.Dietz72 on April 3, 2020 at 5:37 pm

    My question is, what would happen to your current xbox live subscription?

  19. N S P on April 3, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    nope it it is available in amazon

  20. Widya Santoso on April 3, 2020 at 5:39 pm

    This video just popped up on my list, and I was thinking that it was due to the recent announcement of the expansion of the All Access program. Then I check the date of the video- a year ago! YOUTUBE…!

  21. foxroano9t on April 3, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    I am interested in this idea. Currently have PS4 and Switch.

  22. RenderingsToTheMAX on April 3, 2020 at 5:41 pm

    stretched out tshirt neck is all I see, now you will too!…..hmmm..

  24. Juan Diaz on April 3, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    Game streaming have been arround for years.. This is way to expensive just for 2 years. If I’m going to spend all that money I rader just buy the games. The Sega Channel has been the best thing since 1998 when it came to streaming. Sony and Microsoft have lost sight of what gaming is all about. All they care about is money not the consumer.

  25. Mike LeGrene on April 3, 2020 at 5:48 pm

    There is a credit check. They seem to bury or not report that little part.

  26. LoneWanderer81 on April 3, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    I’ve read an article the other day, that states the Xbox All Access is now available online, but for a limited time. I guess to see how it works out, if it’s successful or not.

    One thing, you have to be approved for a Dell Preferred Account, which is something I’m not sure about.

  27. Dvdtav Games on April 3, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    There is no war Xbox is way better no question .. and I am a PlayStation man myself

  28. Clifton Friese on April 3, 2020 at 5:49 pm

    They should hook up with rent a center and do the deal there. They are everywhere.

  29. the kingnumberone on April 3, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    You can’t online…. waste of a good idea

  30. Nomeltta Yeet on April 3, 2020 at 5:52 pm

    Well to late i already have an xbox

  31. Ish M on April 3, 2020 at 5:53 pm

    Seems pretty dope. Interest free financing. Pretty obvious you’d need good credit otherwise your SOL. Also I think Microsoft will offer some type of upgrade path for their upcoming next gen console which is nice.

  32. Erick Farris on April 3, 2020 at 5:57 pm

    What about for those who already own a console

  33. Covfefe Act The on April 3, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    Game pass is decent at best. I’m an active subscriber. A few good one games. A lot of 360 games.

  34. Terence Jones on April 3, 2020 at 6:00 pm

    This is the bridge to not being able to buy games anymore !!? SCREW THIS GARBAGE!

  35. AlkamistStar on April 3, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    2:38 Their exclusives will be available on Game Pass day one though…

  36. iddybox on April 3, 2020 at 6:01 pm

    I did this last week. I have bad credit but was approved for up to $1500 on the dell preferred line. Which you need for this deal by the way. If I can get it so can you. Don’t doubt yourself. Here are my pros:
    1. Easy to get accepted by Dell
    2. Going to a Microsoft store actually helps you get your questions answered and pick up a few games or accessories or even an extended warranty.
    3. I now have a fully loaded Xbox one X
    4. Put my original Xbox one in my kids room.
    5. I can pay the minimum payment for two years or pay it off a lot sooner. Get it all paid off in 6 months and own it sooner. Be flexible to get the next Xbox.
    6. NO INTEREST! As long as it
    Is paid off in 2 years!
    7. Helps to build your credit.
    8. Its a fast process. Once approved you can go immediately to a Microsoft store and walk out. Just with your name, email and SS number. (Stop being a lazy prick and complaining that you must venture out of your house! Wipe the Cheetos dust from your fingers and put on a clean shirt and go! Don’t be a bitch!)
    9. Again…not shelling out of pocket all at once and NO INTEREST for 24 months.
    10. I can say a lot more good stuff, but I have better things to
    Do than write YouTube comments.

    Seriously my advice is get it. It truly
    Is good all around. None of the cons seem to bother me. I can’t think of any myself at all.

  37. Ricardo on April 3, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    Xbox All access is now on Amozon.

  38. Jed Crossman on April 3, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    That’s so not true!!! Xbox s is 200 and the xbox x is 500. So you pay 770 that’s 270 more take the gold and game pass 60 and 30 for black friday so those together take 90 from 270 and you just lost money in reality. You spend more for a not better deal they say is great

  39. Middle Management on April 3, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    It is in other countries and I can get one at game (I think it’s like a British GameStop)

  40. Rob Kriger on April 3, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    Feels like a way to boost numbers for a failing Game Pass program. Game list contains last-gen titles, mixed with games already provided in gold membership, topped off with current-gen titles that performed crappy’ish in sales. If you go for the deal, STAY AWAY FROM THE XBOX ONE S! I have the launch and S models, and the S performance and reliability sucks by comparison.

    If you’re that set on getting one for cheaper, go on craigslist. All you’ll need: baseball cards, pop cans, a tin box full of marijuana, some copper wire, and to perform some handy man work ha ha ha

  41. Slow_xb on April 3, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    I think they need to take another look at what states have a microsoft store and what states dont because according to microsofts website ky doesnt have one and my closest store is nashville tennessee or indianapolis indiana

  42. ArsenicSteel00 on April 3, 2020 at 6:09 pm

    the math is wierd. Not sure how the "base" prices were figured out without even mentioning sales AND at the same time say All-Access is for people that want to save money

  43. Mog Wi on April 3, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    If you cant save up 500 bucks then you probably shouldn’t buy a console. Like really, you need a 2 year payment plan for a videogame console? This is why the average american is up to their eyeballs in credit debt.

  44. MasterJazz09 on April 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Its not about savings well it is but its about not paying it all at once. Not every one can drop 400-500$ at once plus games and stuff its a much safer blow with a few dollars a month even if you dont save that much it’s just some times a more affordable options for some people

  45. Tommy Ross on April 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    I’m in! I pay for both services now with an older One x. Makes sense to me.

  46. DJ Monologue on April 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Dive a hour away to get a Xbox and find out you can’t get one because you have no credit or credit sucks. We live in the 21 century, everything you can buy online. This was not thought threw smh

  47. mshenninger on April 3, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    Wrong you can use amazon so you dont have to travel anywhere

  48. 1599dmack on April 3, 2020 at 6:14 pm

    you can buy it on amazon today if you are just seeing this in 2020 for 30.99 for 24 months

  49. OMthree28 on April 3, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    Cashing that Sony check, huh?

  50. ALIENS In. GAMES on April 3, 2020 at 6:17 pm
