Xbox All Access upgrade program detailed by Microsoft

Trade-in, trade up!

The Xbox All Access upgrade program that will allow users to transition from an Xbox One to an Xbox Series S or Series X console was today detailed by Microsoft.

The details presented today are largely for US-based customers, but essentially, those who meet a minimum repayment threshold will be able to swap out their Xbox One for an Xbox Series console.

“Please note, as part of your upgrade process, if you purchase an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S with Xbox All Access before meeting the minimum payment requirement on your original Xbox All Access purchase, you will need to make payments for both the original Xbox All Access purchase and your new Xbox All Access purchase until your minimum payment requirement on your original Xbox All Access purchase is met,” the upgrade page details.

If those requirements are met, users can register their intention to upgrade now or at any time and will eventually receive a trade-in kit to mail back their Xbox One. The old Xbox One must be mailed back within 14 days or the user will be charged for both the One and Series consoles.
