Xbox 360 with Contract is Real; Available Now
Posted 07 May 2012 - 09:23 AM
"Sign up for 2 year subscription to Xbox Live Gold Membership* at $14.99 per month and receive a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect for $99.
Promotional offer (Microsoft may terminate this Offer at any time).
*Applicable taxes extra. New 2 year Xbox LIVE Gold contract at $14.99/month required. Early termination fee and other restrictions apply."
This is basically exactly what was rumored, so obviously someone had let the cat out of the bag early. The only thing a bit different is that this is marked as a promotional offer. It seems that it will probably only be temporary if it doesn't sell like hotcakes. However, there are probably a lot of people out there who would jump at an initially cheaper system, even though it works out to being a little more than the cost of one by the end of its 2 year contract.
Would you consider buying a home console with a contract?

I can't help but be curious how they would collect the money if they don't get it (even if I guess it will be attached to your credit card), are we going to see microsoft themed repo men? (Maybe Gears or Halo themed employees that bust your door down?)

Realistically even more, but that estimate was assuming retail price.

Right now from amazon alone you can get the 360 with Kinect - Link and a 1 year Live Gold Subscription - Link for $284.99 and $48.41 respectively. So you'd save a nice chunk if you are thinking long term. Not as big of a gap in price as I initially thought but still, meh. The other thing is you'd be stuck paying for the 2 year contract even if you wished to stop using/paying for the service.
Funny little tidbit - their $14.99 a month for 2 years adds up to $360 coincidence!? I think not
