Microsoft might be on the verge of prepping up a $99 Xbox 360. According to a report from The Verge, the bundle would be available at Microsoft stores in the United States and offer access to Xbox Live Gold “and possibly some additional streaming content from cable providers or sports package providers”.
The bundle would include a 4GB console and a Kinect sensor and would carry a monthly subscription fee of $15 along with a two year warranty as well.
Two years of the subscription fee in addition to the $99 console would add up to a total cost of $459. By comparison, Microsoft’s current 4GB Kinect bundle is available for $299, and two years of Xbox Live costs $120. The report adds that an early termination fee will be required for customers who wish to cancel the subscription before two years have commended.
For now, this is only a rumour, but we should find out soon whether or not this will be an actual thing or not.
