Microsoft this week offered up an Xbox and Kinect bundle for $99 for those who subscribe to a two-year Xbox Live Gold Membership.

The Xbox Live membership will run $14.99 per month. Those who sign up will get the 4GB Xbox 360 and the Kinect sensor for $99.

Buyers will need to bring the coupon currently listed on (or offer code 885370366266) to a nearby Microsoft Store. The deal does not appear to be available online, while Microsoft said the deal is a promotional offer and could end at any time.

According to the Xbox website, users can return the hardware and cancel their subscription within 30 days, but the first month's $14.99 payment is non-refundable. After 30 days, users will incur an early termination fee (ETF) that will start at $250 and decrease as the two years progress; a user would owe $144 after one year, for example.

$99 Xbox/Kinect Bundle

News of a possible $99 Xbox/Kinect bundle was first reported last week by The Verge.

Over the weekend, meanwhile, IGN, reported that the Xbox 720 – or whatever the name of Microsoft's Xbox 360 successor happens to be – is allegedly already being manufactured at a plant in Texas. Microsoft has said it won't be showing off a new Xbox at next month's E3 gaming conference, but it is rumored to be prepping a new Xbox music service, codenamed Woodstock.
