Xbox All Access Australian pre-orders “soon opening,” says Telstra

Xbox All Access Australian pre-orders will be opening “soon” according to Telstra, which has also asserted that it holds exclusive rights to the financing program locally.

“But wait: there’s more,” a press release from Telstra reads. “Stay tuned early next week for an announcement about an opportunity to jump the pre-order queue and score yourself an Xbox Series X and 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, just by using the problem-solving and puzzle-hunting skills you’ve picked up as a gamer. It’s like playing Phoenix Wright IRL.”

With Xbox All Access in Australia, an Xbox Series S console will cost $33 AUD/month over 24 months (comapred to $499 AUD outright), and an Xbox Series X console will cost $46 AUD/month over 24 months (compared to $749 outright).

We’ll let you know when pre-orders go live, of course, but you can also keep an eye out on Telstra’s Xbox All Access portal for updates.

Regular pre-orders of the Xbox Series S and Series X go live on 22 September, and the consoles themselves will be available from 10 November.
