Xbox 360 + Kinects for $99! BUT There’s a Catch…

 

 

The rumor mill is a-buzzin on the ol interweb today with a new bundle for the Xbox that maybe available as soon as next week. The bundle will include the 4gig Xbox 360 plus the kinects for a mere $99! BUT, there’s a catch you have to agree to a Monthly subscription to Xbox live Gold at about 15 buck a month! There may also be extra streaming content available as well as a 2 year warranty. Cause you know Xbox’s’ like to brick on a regular basis!

 

If you’re thinking “well I’ll get the bundle then drop the subscription after a few months!” think again in an effort to keep you up to date and fully paid there is an early termination fee that you will have to pay to drop the service. Is it me or does this sound like oh I don’t know ah a cell phone contract!

 

So now if you’re wondering if it’s worth it sit down and do some math the cost for buying the system out right with Xbox Gold for two years is about $420 and if you go the subscription route it’ll set you back $459! Well, to me. This seems like a sham but if your short on cash and be needin so XBL this maybe the way to go… Just remember that 4gig system will not hold all those Call of Duty Mappacks you been dyin to download and play online so a Hard drive will set you back about another $100 give or take Sooooo hhmm is it worth it? Why don’t you guys decide leave your thoughts below…

    you are right Cabbie some of the other details to this possible deal says that microsoft is doing it to battle Apple TV, ROKU, and the PS3 and to help premiere their new music service that they will unveil at the E3 keynote!

    It does sound like a cell phone contract but with the way streaming services are heading, I could see Roku and others following suit. The advantage to this though is you get a capable console as well as a streaming device. Microsoft always said they wanted to make the 360 a media hub for the living room, this is just another option for them to do this. I would like to see the numbers of consoles sold in this business model after 3 months of it being on the market.
