$99 Xbox deal? Your Thoughts?

What a scam. You get the xbox, and the kinect, but then you have to commit to a 2 year xbox live subscription at $15 a month (A total of about $360), when you can buy a 1 year for $50 a walmart.

I think its crap, but want your opinions.

What a joke.. I mean you can get a 4gb xbox 360 with kinect in a bundle for pretty damn cheap now, not sure why anyone would spend the money on that. Also, did Microsoft up the price of XBL per month? I only pay $9.99/month for mine, been that price for almost 2 years.

I got my xbox from cotco fro $300. It came with special edition mw3 skin on the box and 2 mw3 skinned controllers, a 340gig hard drive, headset and mw3.

Best part, it's costco. I can return it anytime and get a costco cashcard.

I only buy Live acount cards when they are on Slickdeals.com. I have seen them as low as $35. I got my last one with the keypad that plugs into the bottom of the controler, head set. and 12 month card for $50 +free shipping and no tax.

There are people that can come up with $100 bill and make a $15 payment easier than $300 and another $40-50 a year for Live. This is why Arron's and Rent-a-center are still in business.

Why do you pay $9.99 a month? That is crazy? Go to Walmart and buy a one year for $49.99. (less than $5 a month) and I am pretty sure that when you buy a 12 month, you get a month free, so 13 months for $49.99.

I signed up for the monthly when I bought my xbox and honestly just forgot about it. Probably should just do the 1 year subscription to save some money though.
