There will be an early termination fee of $250 that decreases after 3 months
The Microsoft Store officially posted an offer for a
$99 Xbox 360/Kinect bundle
on its website.
Last week, rumors circulated that Microsoft was planning on selling a 4GB Xbox 360 bundle with a Kinect sensor and two-year Xbox Live Gold service subscription. The only catch was that there'd be a $14.99 monthly service fee for the service, but gamers would receive the
regular online gameplay features of an Xbox Live Gold subscription along with extra content from cable providers.
The total cost of the two-year bundle is $459, which is a bit of an increase from the current $418 4GB Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle with two years of
The Microsoft Store online published a redeemable coupon for the $99 bundle today, where offer code 885370366266 can be brought to a local Microsoft store in exchange for the latest deal.
Last week's report also noted that there may be an
early termination fee (ETF)
, but the amount had not been specified at the time. Microsoft has now confirmed that there will, in fact, be an ETF that is set based on the number of months passed after the start of the two-year subscription. If the service is terminated within the first three months, the ETF will be $250. At the fourth month, the ETF is $240. From there, the ETF decreases by $12 each month until it hits $0 at 24 months.

This is why I hope nobody buys into this. With phones, carriers tend to attach a decent subscription plan to phones regardless, so you may as well buy into a subsidized plan rather than buying an unlocked phone for $600 and still paying for the same plan. With this bundle, they've yet to announce anything improved over just buying the box, meanwhile the end price is also higher than retail and only nets you a measly 4gb storage.
If you're struggling and can only afford a $99 down payment, you should probably straighten out your priorities before buying a video game system.
