The lights are on
The rumors were true. Microsoft today confirmed a $99 subscription-based console available at its U.S. stores. In order to redeem the deal, you must bring the coupon seen here to a participating Microsoft store.
The deal requires customers to sign up for a 2-year subscription to Xbox Live Gold at $14.99 per month. The console is a 4GB Xbox 360 and includes Kinect.
Early termination fees apply, which you can read about here.
so its 99$ while simultaneously being 440$
*** off microsoft
Xbox 360 slim 250 gb plus Live Gold for a year= $360
Xbox 360 slim 4 gb plus live for 2 years= $450
Live for a year doubled= 120
You are not saving anything because there is no deal like this so what is it? A benefit or a deterance?
Wow... Just buy the console, and you'll get a better long time deal. I guess they think that cell-phone subscription fees will work for consoles, too.
Hmm, I wonder if anyone noticed that its only Valid at 1 of the 21 Microsoft Stores in the US. Doesn't seem like its to accessible for everyone.
worse deal ever
Microsoft is in way over its head man.
this is the worse deal ever, who on his right mind will sign such an idiotic deal for a 4gb xbox and get stuck with them for 2 years and end up paying more than needed? the console is affordable at 199$ and can be even bought cheaper...15$x24 is 360$ before taxes. not worth the admission price. any normal person would avoid this like the plague. people dont sign up and dont give them your credit card or chequing account on this garbage of a deal...
No matter how you look at this, it's a terrible idea. I just wonder who it was in marketing you came up with this idea. Better yet, I wonder who actually gave that idea the green light.
So theres still people out there without xboxs? huh....who knew...
You'll end up spending more than you would without the deal. It literally isn't even a deal.
haha thats the silliest thing I've ever heard
Eat sh*t, Microsoft.
WTF ARE THOSE IDIOTS AT MICROSOFT EFFIN NUTS, EPIC FAIL MICROSOFT. GLAD TO BE JOINING TEAM PS3 REALLY SOON
This "deal" is ridiculous; microsoft trying to squeeze every drop of juice out of that orange.
Whatever the lead marketing rep for MS is smoking....can I get some? :)
i feel kind of sorry for all the people who will get ripped off by this thinking they are getting a deal.
