Oh for fuck's sake....
It's bad enough that we can't even sell on or pass on our games anymore and now you want us to rent our fucking consoles as well?
Microsoft has plans for a subscription package that'll offer customers an Xbox 360 console and Kinect add-on, as well as access to the Xbox Live Gold service and media content, for a monthly fee. The two-year Xbox subscription could be launched in the US as early as next week, the Verge reports. Microsoft will punt a 4GB Xbox …
" the world's best selling console"
Errm, you do realise the Xbox360 is now firmly in last place this generation?
I'm guessing you are American and have been brainwashed by Microsoft's cherrypicked US-only NPD numbers....
Congratulations for winning the Shitpeas EPIC FAIL of the week award.
At full MSRP, taxes excluded, you save a whole... -$24.03... over those two years! With this bundle, you'd spend a total of $459 for the setup over two years versus the $299.99 for the same console and Kinect bundle, $74.99 for the 12-month Gold starter kit with mic and keypad, and $59.99 for the additional 12-month Gold card, a grand total of $434.97.
Or... you could get it off Amazon right now and pay $283..40 for the system and Kinect, for the starter kit, and $48.41 for the additional 12 months gold card, a total cost of $394.59 with free shipping.
Eh, whatever. It's not as if the average person does math (or maths, if you will) anyway.

This is the relationship between fools and money in a nutshell. Heck, I've had more than a few occasions of watching a customer in McDonalds (as an Englishman, I sometimes crave bland dissapointment) order a burger, fries, and drink individually, and pay 'idiot tax'.
Makes a great business case for all the 'payday' loan companies that have sprung over the past few years.
Why not just stick a coin slot on the bloody thing and send a bloke round every fortnight to empty it!
"Afternoon miss, just to come to empty ya box!"
"What day is the Microsoft man due?"
"Hello, xbox customer support - I've got a serious blockage, can you come quickly!"
Mines the one with pockets full of 50p coins!
