Look at the bright side! The console is a great console. I have both. You are getting it for retail both the console and Ultimate Game Pass. So you may be paying a bit more for the Ultimate Game Pass, but at least your not paying a scalpers price, plus you got free financing for the two years. Think of your 11yo smile they will have when they get it. Smilie
Stack 3 years of gold at one time, convert to game pass ultimate using dashboard $1 offer on Xbox console dashboard, it then converts all 3 years to Game Pass Ultimate straight across.

Doesn't apply in this situation. They already have 2 years of Ultimate purchased so the best to do would be to buy a 1year gold card and top the ultimate on top of that to get the third year free.

It wouldn't do 1:1 conversion. Has to be 3:3 initial.

They haven't redeemed the ultimate yet, so any gold that you have would be ultimate when they redeemed on top of that.

Good point.

It was a gamble, and I bet wrong. I went 'safe' and paid more (well, full retail) bc I thought inventory would be zero if I waited, given all the supply chain issues.
You got it at retail price. It's not a slick deal but atleast you dudn't pay twice the MSRP to scalpers. With the current uncertainty, you shouldn't beat yourself. (16floz of alcohol for $10, anyone? A TP roll for $5? we were there recently)

Quick quetion for the board, please:
I bought an S version Xbox for my 11YO about a month ago via the All Access program where you pay over two years, and where the Ultimate Game Pass is included (for 2 years).

I was not crazy about that idea although (Wirecutter thinks it's a great deal apparently) at the time no one had just the unit itself in stock. I thought with Christmas coming soon, better to secure it (then) than to wait until around now, and possibly no inventory at all (especially this year).

But it's $600 total! Again, for the S, which is $300. 2 years of the Ultimate Game Pass that it includes is definitely not worth $300.

Questions:
Anyone know if there is a way to cancel All Access program if I already bought it? (Xbox is unopened). SHOULD I? I assume the board agrees that $600 is crazy for an S.

I think MSRP for the included subscription is $140 (edited: $360), for two years, so assuming MSRP, you are paying about $60 for the no interest payment over two years.

Any thoughts or advice appreciated!!

Details on the total access:

No upfront cost. 0% APR.*
Next-gen performance in the smallest Xbox ever.
Xbox Series S console
Access to 100+ games with 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate
You actually got the package slightly under retail. Your payment should be $25/month x 24 months = $600.

Gamepass Ultimate is MSRP of $15/month x 24 months = $360.

So $600-$360=$240.

Another benefit of the All Access package is that if you want to, you can upgrade to the Series X at any time during those 24 months.

Gamepass is essentially your own rental store on your console. I think of it as a great way to try before you buy so you don't drop $60+ on a game you wind up hating. And if a game is short and doesn't have a lot of replay value, you generally will have plenty of time to play through it on GPU without ever having to buy it, so potentially another $30-$60 per short game saved there. It also has exposed me to a lot of fun games I wouldn't have the opportunity to play otherwise or may never have heard of had it not been for Gamepass.

Ultimate also covers PC gaming for the same Microsoft account, so you can game on both types of device. Additionally, if you decide to buy a game to own, you get a 20% discount from the MS store.

Finally, Ultimate include the new XCloud gaming service which allows you to stream a game directly to your console without actually downloading it to your device. This is great for Series S because it doesn't take space on the relatively small internal drive, and as long as your bandwidth is sufficient (100mbps) it is pretty impressive how smoothly games run.

Given the scarcity of next gen consoles, I wouldn't kick yourself for making that deal at all. You did save a little bit, guaranteed you would get a console, can stream games from the cloud, and have the option to trade up to Series X if you want to.

Why did they waste resources on this model?
I think they did it to be able to use binned chips that didn't have all GPU cores fully functional. Essentially a way to improve total yield.

This is exactly what happened and a great way to cut down on waste and honestly is good for the consumer too. X cloud is awesome on the S too, although I prefer my X, I can't justify buying two

Because not everyone is interested in paying $200 more to play a couple games? Because not everyone plays games at 4k?! Because $300 is amazing value for non 4k gaming?!

Wait the SD post says it's $299.01 marked down to $299.00 so there's definitively some saving (not savings).

Lol.

It does say on the box that the games are free, and downloading them costs internet. But who reads that instead of looking at the big pictures and print.

You should just be able to return normally within the first month

It's not a terrible deal since it includes gamepass.

But there's other threads on here to get 3 years for about $90 usd.

So you can do the same thing for about $360

What you bought wasn't a rip off it's like save $60 and pay over 2 years. But if you can afford to pay up front you can use slick deals to save you a bunch of money on gamepass ultimate.

I had the S and the X and ended up keeping the S. I have a 4K tv but it doesn't do 120hz with hdmi 2.1. I wasn't upgrading anytime soon and the difference between the two was marginal. For the few games me and my kids play, I ended up selling the X to someone local at cost (wasn't looking to profit… just make some other kid happy) and kept the S to get to play the same games. If and when I get a new TV the X would make sense, but for now the S is all we need.
