    "Jump into the Xbox Experience for only $99," the ad reads. "Xbox 360 4GB console with Kinect for only $99 with new 2 year Xbox Live Gold contract at $14.99/month."

    If we're reading that right, it sounds like Microsoft is saying the $14.99 per month is the cost of Xbox Live Gold. Currently at $60/year, this would balloon the cost of Xbox Live Gold to $179.88 per year for purchasers of this particular bundle. The total cost of the console would then become $458.76. Not exactly a great deal, but not horrible if you'd rather spread the cost over two years.
