Holding off for a good deal on that Xbox 360? Microsoft is offering customers the option to pay less for the Xbox 360 if they pay $99 dollars upfront and 15 dollars a month for a two year contract. This new payment model is Microsoft’s way to increase sales for the console.
For 99$ upfront and 15$ a month, customers receive an Xbox 360, Kinect, and a two-year contract to “Xbox Live Gold,” as well as the ability to stream video and other content from Netflix and Hulu. There is also an early termination fee of up to $250 if you decide that its not worth it anymore. After numerous months of being on top, it seems sales are dropping. This is a neat little way to increase sales but will consumers bite?
