Customers can get these prices on any of the three models when they sign up for an Xbox Live Gold account for two years
Just in time for the holiday season, Microsoft is broadening its subsidized Xbox offer to two new models and possibly more stores.
According to a new report from
, Microsoft is adding two new models to its
subsidized Xbox offer
: a 250GB Xbox 350 for $99 and a 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect for $149. These are in addition to the original option, which is a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect for $99.
Customers can get these prices on any of the three models when they sign up for an Xbox Live Gold account for two years. The membership is $14.99 per month.
Microsoft originally offered the $99 4GB Xbox with Kinect at 16 Microsoft stores, but this could soon change as a new note on a holding page says, "check back later to see a full list of participating retailers."
Last week, three other
Xbox 360 holiday bundles
were announced. This included a 250GB Xbox 360 with "Skyrim" and "Forza 4 Essentials Edition" with one month of Xbox Live Gold for $299.99; 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, "Dance Central 2," "Kinect Sports," "Kinect Adventures," and one month of Xbox Live Gold for $399.99, and a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, "Kinect Disneyland Adventures," "Kinect Adventures" and one month of Xbox Live Gold for $299.99.

really? so you believe that EVERY game ever released for PC should be a hit...and that when daikatana's happen...that's somehow proof that "PC gaming sucks"?
do you know how long starcraft 2 was delayed? how about team fortress 2? do those "Suck"?
the truth is, you wouldn't have 1080p if the PC gamers hadn't pushed for better and better graphics. as evidenced by several trends in the market currently (including screen resolutions) without a "push" from videophiles, the industry stagnates.
oh, and for the record, the gaming industry DID listen. or at least one company has--Epic. alien swarm wasn't created out of thin air; it was birthed by the "make something unreal" contest. the ones who are preventing "feedback" from getting to game developers are people like you and your console cronies who keep shelling out $60 for a game that's identical to last-year's edition--only with a roster change or some pretty new shaders.
i agree that we've had enough hardware to support "gaming goodness" since the SNES. i'd say actually since the original famicom. the problem is, even though you say that--you and your ilk also bitch that the wii is "underpowered" and "lackluster" even though it has plenty of horsepower for what it was designed to do--provide quality gaming experiences.
so if "mindlessly pursuing graphics" at the expense of everything else is a BAD thing--then why bitch about the wii? why is virtually every console player i come across (ps3/360) constantly telling me that the wii sucks?
you can't have it both ways. the PC gamers and videophiles are what makes the tech world go round. we may not develop the tech, but we sure as heck are the ones whose dollars are bringing the cost down for everyone else. only the military does more. ;)
