The Xbox Universal Pass program provides the latest Xbox consoles at low monthly installments. The Xbox Series S can be purchased for AED 99 for 24 months, while the Xbox Series X can be purchased for AED 139 for 24 months. Both devices come with a 24-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
The most important aspect of the program is the no interest on installments, which means that you will not pay more for the console at the end of the 24 months despite paying the price in installments.
In this context, Etisalat Chief Consumer Khaled Al-Khouly said in a press release: “We are delighted to open a new chapter in our strategic partnership with Microsoft. For the first time in the region, Etisalat is exclusively offering the long-awaited Microsoft Xbox Universal Pass program. As the world’s fastest mobile network, it provides the highest speed connections to gamers, making it the best gaming network and a major player in the gaming world. Our partnership with Microsoft brings us one step closer to this vision.”
The Xbox Universal Pass program was launched at an almost perfect time in the region. With the National Holiday fast approaching, and schools slowly finishing up their curricula, those looking to buy new generation Xbox consoles at a low price can opt to get them from the program instead. It may also be the only way to get new Xbox consoles in the country, at least the Xbox Series X, at retail price as supplies are still limited across the region.
The price includes full access to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, which includes over 100 titles to play on both consoles and PC, an EA Play Basic membership, Xbox Live Gold benefits, and a 10-20% discount on select titles.
