Xbox 360 just got cheaper

Microsoft announced earlier today that the four gigabyte Xbox 360 bundle with a Kinect sensor is now on sale for $99. The catch is that you have to sign a two-year agreement to join Xbox Live as a gold member for $14.99 a month. 

I currently pay $60 for a year of that service, so the system isn't really getting any cheaper, it's just a marketing ploy to get some extra play out of the system late in it's life, and also to put more Kinect units in homes so they can sell more games that require that unit.

Nice try Microsoft, but I see right through you...

It's actually not a bad deal for people on a budget though.
