Although Xbox All Access when originally announced for the Xbox One appeared to be an appreciated program for consumers in search for a payment plan to get an Xbox on their hands, it is one of the few avenues now to get a new console with how tight supply is right now. Nearly two years later and there is still no steady flow of hardware at most retailers.
However, Microsoft back in fall 2019 announced that Xbox All Access will be expanding its reach with an upgrade package for the program to ‘Project Scarlett’ at the time. This was well before the announcement of the Xbox Series X and later Xbox Series S which we are well familiar with now. And the service is expanding to more retailers now.
In a new announcement from Verizon, the cellphone carrier and internet provider is to begin offering Xbox All Access in select stores and online starting this Thursday. You can watch the announcement trailer in the video below:
“Xbox is here! Starting July 28, Verizon once again proves it’s the ultimate network for gamers by teaming up with Microsoft to offer Xbox All Access in select stores and online. With Xbox All Access and Verizon, you get a next-gen Xbox console and hundreds of games, including day one releases with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, all on the network America relies on,” George Koroneos, Verizon Public Relations Manager writes.
“Xbox All Access pairs perfectly with Verizon’s fast and reliable mobile and home connections — 5G Ultra Wideband and Verizon Home Internet — both available in select areas. Whether you prefer massive multiplayer online games, fancy yourself a solo RPG purist or just want to jump into the fray with your closest friends, Verizon has you covered.” Verizon will also begin selling accessories for Xbox as well online.
Certainly, Verizon made the arrangement with Microsoft to push its service and network capabilities for home gaming and Xbox Cloud Gaming. Originally, the Xbox firm when establishing xCloud in the United States did team with T-Mobile and is now expanding premium coverage with Verizon as well.
