At Fnac and Micromania, you can choose to buy the console in the classic way, or opt for the Xbox All Access offer which is a rather advantageous credit spread over 24 months.

At the store

This means that if an Xbox Series X | S is available on the shelves, it can be purchased direct or in Xbox All Access as soon as it is sold. If the seller tells you that an Xbox Series X can only be purchased in All Access mode, that’s not true since they can’t force you to take credit. If this happens, you can contact the department manager.
It is not possible to reserve a console with Xbox All Access. The credit file must be completed on the day of the transaction with a console available in stock in the store. On the other hand, it is possible to reserve an Xbox Series X | S on the Fnac website by paying for the console online and returning to the store to switch to the Xbox All Access offer! You will then be reimbursed in order to spend on a global credit on your console + the Game Pass Ultimate for 24 months.

Fnac and Micromania: two merchants for Xbox All Access in France
We know that the Xbox All Access arrives in France and a total of 12 countries offer the purchase of a new Xbox in the form of a credit spread over 24 months. France and Canada are on the list of participants but it is not yet known whether Belgium or Switzerland will be part of it one day. MediaMarkt would then be a good candidate. What is certain is that other countries will offer the Xbox All Access offer in 2021.
In Canada, the Xbox All Access offer is offered at EB Games. In France, Fnac and Micromania are offering Xbox All Access for the moment.
Buying an Xbox Series X or Series S with Xbox All Access: How much does it cost?
If the Xbox All Access took a while to be confirmed in France, and if the partners are so few, it is quite simply because setting up such an offer requires a certain number of prerequisites and authorizations to be able to put in place. place credit.
Remember that the Xbox All Access offer is just a 24-month credit to afford an Xbox Series X | S + an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription:
- Xbox Series X with Xbox All Access = € 32.99 x 24 months = € 791.76
- Xbox Series S with Xbox All Access = € 24.99 x 24 months = € 599.76
Is the Xbox All Access advantageous?
Xbox says there is no additional cost to the proposed credit. When we do the math, we realize that the total price over 24 months is only the addition of the cost of the Xbox Series X | S console (€ 499.99 / € 299.99) and that of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription (€ 12.99) over 24 months. It is even slightly more advantageous to go through the Xbox All Access offer, unless you intend to afford the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate in promotion as we find it. here at € 7.66 per month for example.
Here is a comparison between the purchase of a single tap of the console + the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 24 months subscription at full price, and the fact of going through the Xbox All Access offer:
|Purchase type||Calculation||Final cost over 24 months|
|Xbox Series S + XGPU apart||299.99 € + 24 x 12.99 €||€ 611.75|
|Xbox Series S via Xbox All Access||24 x 24.99 €||€ 599.76|
|Xbox Series X + XGPU apart||499.99 € + 24 x 12.99 €||€ 811.75|
|Xbox Series X via Xbox All Access||24 x 32.99 €||€ 791.76|
Now that the price of the Xbox All Access is confirmed on Xbox Series X at € 32.99 for 24 months, we can say that it is cheaper than buying the console and a full price Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription separately.
Note that buying 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on sale + a separate console is still less expensive and saves more than a hundred euros in two years compared to the All Access offer (total cost of 683.91 € with an Xbox Series X).
Does the Xbox belong to us after 2 years?
Yes, the console is yours after 2 years of Xbox All Access. This is not a loan or console rental, but a credit granted by the participating organizations. At the end of the 24 months of payment, the console is definitely yours, you can do what you want with it.
