Xbox 360 Entertainment for All Plan

Have any of you seen this? Basically, Microsoft is now subsidizing the cost of Xbox 360’s by wrapping you up in to a “Entertainment for All” plan at $14.99/mo, that I’d be getting ANYWAY because it offers the unlimited Xbox Live service (which you need for online play).

All you have to do is go to Microsoft’s Xbox 360 Entertainment for All Plan page, verify that you’re eligible, and sign up for the service. I guess they start your monthly service right away, and then you get a coupon to take to one of the participating retailers (Best Buy, GameStop, Toys’R’Us, Walmart, or Microsoft Store) to pick up any of the eligible Xbox 360’s for $99 or $149.

I guess you can get the $249 “Holiday Bundle” right now for $99…comes with 250gb Xbox 360, Forza 4 (yes!!) and Skyrim (no!!) – Chuck, you can have Skyrim…not my cup’o’tea.

I’m still on the fence, but Dominic is pressing me hard to pick one up.

Hmm…I’m going to have to pick up the new Forza Horizon game as well…damn it! I guess I need something to hold me over until the new Sim City comes out in February.

    Ya I heard about this. But don’t they lock you into a few years contract, kinda like your phone? Is it more than 2 yrs? I can’t remember.

    So they bill you $14.99 a month for Xbox Live PLUS $14.99 for the entertainment for all package? Or are they just calling it “entertainment for all” and really it’s Xbox Live for two years if you buy the $99 Xbox 360? So confused… Mostly because we bought a 360 for $99, are getting Live for $14.99, but not willing to pay out another $14.99 for anything else. Defeats the purpose of the $99 Xbox!
