Actually, Microsoft will offer a $99 XBOX 360 console package with a Kinect sensor at its range of Microsoft Stores in the US, subsidized with a monthly cost of $15/month for two years. In short, it’s like you get the XBOX 360 on a installment package just like the plans we see on mobile phones.
With this package, you will be given access to XBOX 360’s Live Gold service and 2-year warranty for those devices. Don’t think of breaking the 2-year contract or else you will need to pay for “early termination fee”. So you better think carefully with this one.
How much will you save?
Instead of paying the cost of $459 ($99 Xbox and Kinect and $15 monthly for two years Xbox Live gold subscription bundle), you will just pay $420 for all of that.
