“You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” I don’t know where this saying originated from, and I really don’t understand why I can’t eat “my” cake. Microsoft has this same kind of idea in mind, a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect can now be yours for $99, but not without a contract. These Xbox 360′s are now not only in Microsoft Stores (that I didn’t even know existed), but can be purchased at Best Buy and GameStop with a 2 year contract. The 2 year contract is $14.99 a month and will get you an Xbox Live Gold membership also, acting almost as a subscription service. It doesn’t sound like too shabby of a deal if you’re strapped for cash up front, but it is only a 4GB 360 and you end up paying about $30 more in the end. Does Microsoft have something new here? I’m not sure how I feel about this venture into what sounds like a gaming subscription service.
If you owe money to collections, the repomen are going to take your Xbox away regardless. Just wanted to throw that line in there.
Back to the Farm.
