According to The Verge, Microsoft is about to shake up the entire console industry in a single move, by offering a subscription based purchase model for the 360.
Details are currently a little spare, but it’s expected that the company will offer a 4GB Xbox 360, Kinect and access to Live for just $99, with a monthly subscription of $15, from as early as next week across the United States.
Users will have to pay a penalty if they exit the deal before two years is up, but this is an extraordinary offer and one that’s sure to be attractive to millions.
It is, over the two year period, about $30 more all-in, but everyone loves spreading their payments, right? And you can’t argue that that’s a great deal.
The deal also includes full warranty for the two year period.
