Microsoft to Offer $99 Subsidized Xbox 360 with Kinect and Xbox Live Gold [Rumor]

by Lambert Varias

When it was first released back in 2005, the Xbox 360 sold for $299-$399 (USD). But by next week, it could cost you as low as $99 to get one. There’s a catch of course, and I’m not just talking about the fact that this is a rumor: the $99 Xbox 360 actually costs $459.

According to The Verge, the bundle will include a 4GB Xbox 360, a Kinect, a 2-year subscription to Xbox Live Gold and a 2-year warranty. Takers will only have to pay $99 upfront, but will also have to pay a monthly fee of $15 for two years or else be fed to the dreaded Early Termination Fee monster.

The difference between the normal upfront cost for the bundle versus this supposed deal is an extra $39, so it’s not that bad. Even if the next generation Xbox were to come out this year, the target audience of this deal probably won’t be able to afford that new console anyway. Unless of course the new console will also have a subscription plan, in which case yes, this is a bad deal.
