Report: Microsoft to introduce $99 Xbox 360 with a catch


As early as next week, Microsoft Stores could have a new 4GB Xbox 360 bundle with Kinect that costs a mere $99, reports The Verge. This information comes from unnamed sources, who also say that this console will include a monthly cost of $15, which customers will need to pay for two years to avoid an early termination fee.

Wait, what? That doesn't sound like a particularly worthwhile deal. It does get slightly better: the monthly subscription is said to come with access to Xbox Live Gold, a two-year warranty, and "possibly some additional streaming content from cable providers or sports package providers."

Even still, you'd be paying $459.99 for the system, just not upfront. There's obviously a market for this type of offering, but yeah -- no thanks.
