Microsoft's latest effort to make the Xbox 360 seem less expensive than it actually is will soon be going national. Yes, that incredible $99 Xbox 360 deal that launched exclusively at Microsoft Stores last month is coming to a retailer near you.
I think we all saw this coming. What better way to get exposure?
This pretty much would assure that I would never own an XBOX console. Maybe it's just me, but so be it. One more time just so we're clear..... NEVER.
Me neither. Doesn't change the fact that a lot of people would though.
Then why bother commenting or reading the article.
just like the mobile companies did you call them rip off also.
Technically $160 in one year after adding in costs of live and even maybe over $250 after getting a needed hard drive. Because the average kid isn't going to go on amazon or ebay to find deals. But hey for $100 I would get it just for halo and gears.
No, a $100 down payment gives you access to Halo and the like. Then the HDD, $15 sub and games.
Damn :( read the article wrong. Thought it said microsoft TALKING $99 xbox this year :S
I'm sure the rubes will love this.
If you read the fine print it says if a new hardware version comes out, you can send in the version you have for a discount towards it. I actually hope this works out well, mainly because that would mean that the next generation Xbox might offer the same deal. If I get the chance to get a launch Xbox 720 for $99 down I'm all in, I think a lot of people would be. Based on the economy,this is the safest way to assure your console sells well. Microsoft would have a huge advantage over the competition if they let people get a next gen Xbox for $99 down, compared to a probably $399-$499 for the competition.
That may be the reason they are doing it now just to test it out for the future console. If it does well, you may see a down payment for the next console.
What is this Rent A Center???
