Announced alongside the console is the Xbox All Access program which bundles the cost of the machine, the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and Xbox Live subscriptions into a 24-month instalment payment program.

There’s no word on its Malaysian availability yet; and the Xbox All Access program isn’t available in the country too. So, we’ll have to wait and see which retailers will be bringing in the consoles when they’re launched.
