Xbox 360 Console Subscriptions

Xbox 360 has been providing an alternative to buying all of the gear that players need to start their gaming career by providing subscriptions. The recent success of these subscriptions is allowing them to raise the stakes with some alternative deals such as instead of just the Xbox and the Kinect with a two year subscription, now an offer is being made to get rid of the Kinect and get a 250g hard drive for the more hardcore gamers out there. This may provide some sort of cheaper situation for players and fans in the moment but if you add it up and do the math, Microsoft is making so much money off of these “deals”.

The same thing applies like when you are going to a Rent-A-Center and pick up a really nice couch and pay ONLY fifteen bucks a month for it for the next three years. The upfront payments may be cheaper, but think about how much money you’re really spending when you get in to a situation like that. The point is that you end up giving so much more money to enjoy something that you would spend less money in the long run for, but up front may seem like a large amount. Just looking at the deal for the original, if you get the fifteen dollar per month deal, then you’re going to spend close to five hundred dollars for an Xbox 360 and that’s 2-4 times the amount that it is being charged for.

I don’t want to make it seem like I am going against Microsoft here because I love that company and all that they do for the gaming community, however, the deal that is cheaper (since that is all gamers really care about) is just paying for the Xbox up front and enjoying it without paying a subscription.
