$99 Xbox 360 subscription plan now at BestBuy, GameStop

Now at shops you can actually find

Remember that $99 Xbox 360 deal that you couldn't buy anywhere near you? Now you CAN buy it at a shop near you.


Microsoft has released the budget subscription deal via BestBuy and GameStop stores which are everywhere, unlike the nowhere-to-be-seen Microsoft Store to which it was previously exclusive.

Those interest exchange just $99 for a 4GB Xbox 360 console with Kinect, and then pay a monthly fee of $15 over a two-year contractual subscription, which will also provide access to Xbox Live Gold for that duration.

It's a decent deal if you don't have the cash for $200 console up front (even if you end up paying about $40 over the two years).
