Microsoft expands Xbox 360 console subscription service

When Microsoft announced their subscription-subsidized Xbox 360 contract in May, the offer was limited to the 4GB model and only available within the walls of a Microsoft Store. Today, the company has revealed plans to expand the service to multiple Xbox 360 models and open up sales to outside retailers.

Now known as the “Xbox 360 Entertainment For All Plan,” gamers will have the option of selecting one of three different Xbox 360 models for their two-year contract. They include the 4GB With Kinect ($99 + $15/month XBL Gold Contract), the 250GB ($99 + $15/month XBL Gold Contract), and the 250GB With Kinect ($149 + $15/month XBL Gold Contract).

Over the life of the two-year subscription, the total cost to purchasers would be $40 (on the 4GB With Kinect/250GB models) or $70 (on the 250GB With Kinect model) more than the regular purchase price. But, of course, you won’t have to pay it all up front.

Multiple retailers will soon begin to offer the Xbox 360 Entertainment For All Plan, with Microsoft saying on their official website, “Please check back later to see a full list of participating retailers.”

UPDATE: Microsoft has released the list of “Xbox 360 Entertainment For All Plan” retailers and it includes GameStop, Toys R Us, Best Buy, and Walmart.
