No, that would be absurd. It's like a cell phone contract, basically.

eh i was thinking it was like leasing a car (which is an absurd concept to me but some people go for it)

i was wrong tho, so meh

You keep the car too. What you're thinking about is renting, not leasing, or rent-to-own.

i was wrong about this XBox deal but am for sure right that leasing usually means you return the car after the lease is up.

we don't wanna get too off topic tho. <3

Not Knocking this (Yet) but this assumes full price on both services and full price on a console without games (Or sales)

So lets add this up for real:

Xbox One X for 487 free shipping on Amazon.
Xbox Live Gold (When goes on sale - Buy 2 one year cards) $36.99 X 2 (I have seen lower but let's use this) 73.98
Xbox Gamepass - (Various deals here - But lets say buy 9 get 12 which I have seen. Spronk you may have seen better) 89.91 * 2 = $179.82

So that would be $740.80 for those that wait for the deals (Which come and go regularly) Or $840 and change for the monthly all access.

So about $100 dollars to finance.
Some of the deals you talking about are happening right now. Both Xbox live gold, and Xbox game pass are $2 for 2 months from the Microsoft store. Saw it on slickdeals.

So I have some free time this week and I have AC: Origins and Far Cry 5 in my back catalog and I’m thinking about starting one up? Similar games, which should I play first as I might only have time for one?

would you rather be in ancient egypt or redneck montana is really what it comes down to. both games are pretty much equivalent quality wise i'd say, having finished both. AC origins is slightly better but combat and stuff is better in FC5

FC5 is pretty legit. The story is pretty cool. Make sure to do all story missions first in a region before any side missions. Makes it all flow better.
