I've only seen it once so far and I don't even know what it looks like it was so quick. But I swear I heard them announce that they will be having the Xbox at the price of 99 bucks. I'm assuming it's the 4 GB version but still. Anyone else seen a commercial about this?

I've 'heard' of it many times, but that could largely b/c I frequent many gaming sites. However, I think I might have only ever SEEN it advertised was maybe around last Black Friday. But I can't say any other times past that I can recall seeing again.

lol you have to  sign a service agreement with xbl for 2 whole years at 7 bucks a month or some s$^%   

no thanks might as well buy it up front

Yeah, it's only the 4 gig, and you have to sign up for 2 years of XBL, making the overall price $220. Just throw in $30 more bucks and get the 250 gig edition that comes with Skyrim and Forza

No it isn't just for the 4gb, as it is for the 250gb. Since I can't afford to buy an Xbox360 with atleast 250gb I had to do that $99 Xbox360 Deal with $14.99 a month for 2 years that Microsoft is doing. It may sound like a rip off to alot of people, but if you do the math it really isn't that bad of a deal. It would normally cost $444.27 w/tax for a 250gb Xbox360($324.29 w/tax) and 2 years of Xbox Live($119.98), but with that Microsoft Deal it costs $466.78 w/tax for a 250gb Xbox360($107.02 w/tax) and 2 years of Xbox Live at $14.99 a month($359.76). I went to Best Buy and got this Deal and I only had to pay a total of $122.01 upfront for the first month Xbox Live and for the 250gb Xbox360. So this Microsoft Deal is really a difference of only $22.51 compared to getting everything at retail prices. I think that isn't really too bad, and is acceptable for people like me that can't afford to pay the full price upfront because I can afford $14.99 a month.

It's a ripoff man.

The 360 should be $100 by now no strings attached. I bought two 360s at launch back in 2005 for $400 and $300! It's 2013 and the machine is still high priced, using yesterday's old DVD drives, 512mb RAM, etc. It's crazy.

The $99.99 360 deal you saw required an Xbox Live subscription agreement, and get this, you also over pay for the XBL service locked in a TWO YEAR DEAL! It's a terrible deal.

Avoid at all costs.

You should be able to buy a 360 fo r$100 with no strings attached, probably after the 720 releases...at least a 4GB one.
