Microsoft (MSFT) plans to offer Xbox 360 packages featuring the console and a Kinect sensor at a subsidized price of $99, The Verge reports. The deal is said to require a 2-year contract for a $15/month service that would include access to Xbox Live Gold and possibly additional streaming content. Such a move would bolster Microsoft's lofty home entertainment ambitions, but could also increase near-term losses for its Entertainment & Devices division.
