SEATTLE -- Microsoft is offering its Xbox 360 gaming consoles with the Kinect motion controller for $99 for people who sign up for a two-year Xbox Live Gold membership at $15 per month.
Microsoft Corp. says people who buy the console at the discounted price but cancel the monthly Live membership are subject to an early termination fee. The fee ranges from $12 to $250 depending on when they cancel. Xbox 360 owners mainly use the Live service to play multiplayer games such as "Call of Duty" online.
Normally, the 4-gigabyte Xbox plus the Kinect costs $300. The catch? The deal is only available in Microsoft's stores and prospective buyers must show up in person to redeem the offer.
