    If a console comes with a 3rd party contract, somethings wrong there.
    I'd go with no. Not to mention it'd be annoying as hell.

    Maybe if this was a year or two ago, but new generation will come before that contract expires and I'm not sure if the subscription would work with 720?

    I'd say no.

    Just curious, are you buying this directly from Microsoft or from like Gamestop? And is it a new or used console?

    I think it would have to be at least a 20GB+ xbox with a 1 year live commitment. The only way it would work is if this deal was out like 2 years ago. With the new generation consoles coming out possibly, if the rumors are true, the end of this year its just not a smart move. Also 4GB on an xbox that requires a live commitment isnt smart since most multiplayer games will eat through that 4GB like a snack so you would have to constantly delete files to make way for new games.

    Xbox live has worked since the original xbox back when CS was one of the few games that supported xbox live. I doubt that they would scrap xbox live one of the main selling points of xbox with the new model.
