Yup. lol. It's such a dumb thing. Or pay ~80 for 2 years at most and say 300 for a system...still come out ahead. Even if you paid 60 a year it's still less...

Only if you paid cash.

If you paid with a credit card, over the same period of time, you would end up paying more if you bought the system for $300 and 2 years of Gold for $80 than you would if you had just bought the $99 system with the 2 years @ $15/month.

With it they are going for a niche market; ie people who cant afford $300+ up front but can afford $15 a month (plus the $99 which would be someone's bday present). Of course your saving money if you pay the full price upfront and buy the 12month cards cheap but for some it just isn't possible to save up that much beforehand.

Putting an Xbox on credit is also a thing you shouldn't be doing.

its the same as businesses like Rentway, or Rent-a-Center. Just go and look at their terms in the fine print. Instead of rent-to-own, it should be "we steal and take advantage of poor people with no credit"

Yep.

Go to one of those places, and you end up paying something like $2000 for a 4GB Slim.
