Bangalore,India: Airtel & Microsoft are offering free Xbox Live subscriptions & games in 4 cities (Delhi,Bangalore,Chennai,Mumbai) for Xbox 360 4GB customers who also sign up for an Airtel connection along with it. Anyone who buys an Xbox 360 4 GB with Kinect will be eligible to get 10 free Xbox 360 games and a free Xbox Live Gold 12 month membership, if they also purchase a new Airtel connection with the product. They can also avail this offer if they are existing Airtel broadband customers, and purchase a new Xbox 360. On top of these freebies, they will get a discount of Rs. 4,888 on airtel subscriptions (2 mbps/4mbps). Existing owners of Xbox 360 can switch to Airtel to get a discount of Rs.4,888 on their connection and a free 3 month Xbox Live Gold membership.

Having a look at the tariff plans offered, it seems that they are offering the broadband subscription as a bulk 12-month package, with a rental of Rs.8500 for the 2mbps connection and Rs.9500 for the 4mbps connection. The downside is that there is a 10 GB fair usage limit , and speed will drop to 256 kbps once the limit is crossed. This limit is surprisingly low, considering that the consumption of bandwidth using an Xbox Live membership is very high. Given that the successor to the Xbox 360 is rumored to be released around Christmas period of this year, this may be an attempt by Microsoft to clear their stock of Xbox 360 devices in India before they target the market with their new device.
