Xbox All Access at Fnac

At the store

The Xbox All Access offer has been available in the Fnac store since the official reopening of the cultural departments and the deconfinement.

Note that there is no stock specifically dedicated to Xbox All Access in the Fnac store. This means that if an Xbox Series X|S is available on the shelves, it can be purchased directly or in Xbox All Access as soon as it finds a buyer. 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 + Game Pass Ultimate for 24 months. Unfortunately, Fnac has not offered Xbox Series X on its site for a long time now.

Here are the documents requested by Fnac to subscribe to Xbox All Access:

  • A valid ID
  • A proof of address less than 3 months old
  • A rib
  • A valid bank card

On the Fnac website

For the moment, Fnac confirms that the subscription to Xbox All Access is only possible in store. The French brand gives no indication as to a possible arrival of the subscription to Xbox All Access on its website and it is not planned “in the medium term”.

The Xbox All Access offer at Micromania can be chosen online. You must then complete an online application. Once the file is completed, a quick response is given to you on its acceptance.

If your file is accepted, a confirmation will be sent to you. It will allow you to pick up your console. If your file is refused, your reservation remains active.

Fnac and Micromania: two merchants for Xbox All Access in France

We know that Xbox All Access is coming to France and there are 12 countries in total that offer the purchase of a new Xbox in the form of 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 one day be part of it. 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 available from EB Games. In France, Fnac and Micromania are currently offering Xbox All Access.

Buying an Xbox Series X or Series S with Xbox All Access: How much does it cost?

If the Xbox All Access took some time 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 set up place the credit.

Buy an Xbox Series X or Series S!

Remember that the Xbox All Access offer is nothing more than a 24-month credit to buy 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 Xbox All Access advantageous?

Xbox claims that the credit offered does not carry any additional cost. 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’s even slightly more advantageous to go through the Xbox All Access offer, unless you plan to treat yourself to the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on promotion as we find it here at €7.66 per month for example.

Here is a comparison between buying the console all at once + the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate 24 month subscription at full price, and going through the Xbox All Access offer:

Type of purchase Calculation Final cost over 24 months
Xbox Series S + XGPU apart €299.99 + 24 x €12.99 €611.75
Xbox Series S through 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 through Xbox All Access 24 x €32.99 €791.76

Now that the price of Xbox All Access is confirmed on Xbox Series X at €32.99 for 24 months, we can safely say that it’s better value than buying the console and a full price Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription separately.

Note however that buying 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate on sale + a console separately is still cheaper 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. It is not a loan or a console rental, but a credit granted by the participating organizations. At the end of the 24 months of payment, the console belongs to you definitively, you do with it what you want.
