The New Deal with Xbox 360

It seems there is a new deal that Microsoft is trying to sell on the market at two major retailers: Game stop and Best-Buy.  Buyers receive an Xbox 360 as well as a Kinect for $99.  What’s the catch?  Well, when you decide to purchase the Xbox, you must sign a two year agreement to pay for Xbox Live, which at first doesn’t sound so bad, BUT Microsoft is charging the monthly fee of $14.99 rather than doing the yearlong deal that would be about $60 for the entire year.  Under the terms they have given you, the total cost after adding in the two year agreement would be somewhere in the realm of $450 before taxes.  A deal? …not so much.
