$99 Xbox 360 Expanding to Walmart, Toys R Us, All GameStop Locations

Earlier in the year, Microsoft began a program where consumers could purchase a 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect for $99 when agreeing to a two-year contract for Xbox Live. Now, the company will greatly be expanding that program.

The program—which was launched in Microsoft’s own line of stores, and then expanded to Best Buy and some GameStop locations—is based around a subscription model much like mobile phones. Under the plan, after paying the initial $99, customers must then pay $15/month for two years for access to Xbox Live Gold.

Now, that offer will be expanding to Walmart and Toys R Us, as well as getting a full roll out in all GameStop locations. As well, Microsoft is now offering up two other models under this plan: A 250GB Xbox 360 with no Kinect sensor also for $99, and—for a limited time—a 250GB console with Kinect for $149.

This new roll-out should be happening in time for the holiday shopping season.
