Xbox 360 subscription model comes to Best Buy and GameStop
Microsoft's experimental Xbox 360 has left the confines of the Microsoft Store
Microsoft's $99 Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle hits GameStop and Best Buy retail locations today, according to Microsoft's Major Nelson. Prior to this launch, the model was only available at Microsoft Stores.
With the new bundle, users pay $99 upfront for a Xbox 360 4GB unit with Kinect, and agree to pay for 24 months of Xbox Live at $14.99 per month. All told, the system ends up costing more once it's paid off, but the move does lower the barrier of entry.
