Microsoft says that they may terminate this offer at any time. It seems that Microsoft is still in test mode for subsidized Xbox.
A new 4GB Xbox 360 costs you $299.99 usually. The Xbox Gold Card for $12 months has a regular price of $59.99. You would pay $419.97 regularily. With the subscription deal you end up paying $458.76. So over the 24 months you only pay about $30 more. This is a pretty good deal if you do not have the cash at hand and can commit for the full 2 years. There are early termination fees that apply. The deal looks though less attractive if you can find discounted consoles and the Xbox Gold Card is for instance right now on sale on Amazon for only $48.41.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
