How ridiculous someone here said $99 Xbox with subscription fee is MS trying to sell their over-stocked 360. The purpose of this is testing if this kind of business can be suitable for gaming industry and perhaps implent in the next gen.

I really don't understand the posts from those anti-xbox fans.

Well those who buy it will be pretty screwed when their next console comes out and they're still paying that monthly fee for a last-gen console. 

Not really. If they want, they can simply buy the next Xbox and continue to pay for XBL. Accounts transfer just like that between consoles.

Will this transfer? You're not only paying for XBL, but also the console itself partly

The money your paying is partially going to pay for that console but as long as your paying the $15 a month you can do whatever you want with the console and your XBL account. XBL accounts can be on any Microsoft console you want.


What if they do a similar subscription thing with their next console? Will you need to continue paying monthly for the 360 and the new console on top?

If they did a similar thing next gen (which I think they will) then if you bought the new 360 in the same way it would probably be like upgrading your phone AKA: add two (or three or four) years to however much time you have left in your contract and you may have to pay a bit more a month since it's a new console.
