The first package features a 250GB Xbox 360 package for just $99 when you sign up for Gold membership for two years at $14.99 per month. The second model will host a price of $149 to include Kinect. The subscription fee for the Gold membership will remain the same.
Originally, the same $99 deal came with a 4GB Xbox 360 console and Kinect for a two-year Gold membership at the same $14.99 a month.
The subscription based console packages must be doing good to have Microsoft take this step.
The original package offer was available at just 16 official Microsoft stores. It’s expected that the new models will cover more outlets, and we will see a broader retail launch in time during the holiday season.
