It’s officially happened. For weeks now the rumors have been floating around the Internet that Microsoft would be releasing the Xbox 360 for a minuscule $99, and now it’s finally happened.
The only catch with this deal is that you have to agree to a two year contract for Xbox Live Gold which comes out to $14.99/Month billed to your Credit or Check Card. Now I understand the allure of the deal (same as buying something from Rent-A-Center or Aaron’s), getting something cheap up front, but paying a boat-load on the back-end for it.
Either way, it is a good deal for those who cannot fork out all the dough at one time, just be aware that you are paying a lot more in the long run then you would have by saving and buying a console with cash (or the plastic equivalent).
This is a limited time offer so pounce on it now if you’re interested.
