$99 Xbox 360 + Kinect bundle Launching Next Week With 2-Year Contract (RUMOR)
According to The Verge, Microsoft is allegedly planning to launch a $99 Xbox console package with a monthly subscription as early as next week.
For the $99 buy-in fee and a two-year contract for a $15 monthly fee, consumers will receive a 4GB Xbox 360 with a Kinect sensor. The two-year subscription will also provide access to the Xbox Live Gold service and possibly some additional streaming content from cable providers or sports package providers. Of course, a contract termination fee will keep you shackled to your two-year commitment.
$15 a month for two years, plus the $99 buy-in, comes out to a total cost of $459. Buying the bundle now and getting the cheapest two-year Xbox Live Gold option comes out to $299.00 + $120 = $420, so there’s little difference in overall cost, but a big difference in how much needs to be paid upfront.
Is this a deal you’d consider?
