Microsoft has announced that it will offer its $99 Xbox console package with a monthly subscription to Best Buy and GameStop today — which could significantly expand the program beyond its original launch at Microsoft Stores.

As expected, Microsoft's $99 Xbox console package with a monthly subscription is available at Best Buy and select GameSpot locations starting today — which could significantly expand the program beyond its original launch at Microsoft Stores. The offer was previously only available at Microsoft's retail outlets as a trial retail model, but Microsoft says that the expansion is still part of a "pilot period." The offer provides customers with a lower upfront cost for the 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect and Xbox Live Gold, by saddling them with a two-year Live Gold commitment at $14.99 a month.
