What the Hell is Microsoft doing now?
Everyone looks for a good deal. When we see Coke on sale for a $1, we all stock up on it, even if we don’t need it. ‘Tis the American way. But, Microsoft’s newest ‘deal’ is not what it’s cracked up to be. So, when I bought my XBOX 360, I think I spent around $200 for it, as I got the 4 GB model cause I’m a cheapass. But, Microsoft has decided to release a 4 GB XBOX 360 for $99. Sounds great right? Well, there’s a catch. When you buy this cheap XBOX, you have to sign up for a two year XBOX Live plan at $15 a month. This may not seem like that much, but after the two years you’ve spent $459 before sales tax; that’s over $40 more than the XBOX Kinect bundle with a separate XBOX Live plan.
I get trying to make a more affordable console, which is what I thought the 4 GB model was, but apparently that shit wasn’t good enough for Microsoft.
