Xbox 360 4GB Console for $150? Kmart says, ’Yes’

Kmart has the Xbox 360 4GB console for $199.99 thru Oct. 30th, while supplies last. With your purchase you get 50,000 Xtra points!?!? HAHA, it sounds like a lot of points. Really, it amounts to $50 that can be used toward a future purchase, making the Xbox 360 only $150 in total! (Xbox 360)

No it's not $50. Its $200 but you get another $50 to purchase. If I can get that $50 off at purchase then it's a deal.

You buy the game
and get a $50 gift card of sorts. So technically they are almost giving you a rebate that can only be spent at their store.

@ Necrum

I don't think people are understanding you. You are saying it would be nice to bring $150 plus tax and buy the console.

Not pay $200 plus tax and get the $50 dollars back later, or for another purchase.

Yes. Not that it's a bad deal, but people say it's only $150. It isn't, it's 200 but you get $50 after you spend the $200. Like I said good deal but it's nor like you only have to pay $150.

Personally I'd put it towards a HDD. 4gbs is not enough for anything

Pretty much explains it
MS took the anti-consumer route by not allowing for third party hard drives.

This would be a good deal if I didn't need a HDD.

You can get a 250 gig HDD for the Arcade Slim
At Dealextreme for like $50, it takes a couple of weeks to get in the mail, but it's fantastic. I got a deal like this on a 4 gig Arcade, then got the 250 gig HDD, so I pretty much saved a ton of cash on it.
FragMnTagM  +   1861d ago
wow not bad
$57.20 for a new 250gb hard drive that's not bad at all.
sickbird  +   1861d ago
is it me or is a 4gig system kind of useless? you get 5 games and you'd probly already be out of space.
0oAngeluso0  +   1861d ago
Not everyone can afford $300 + tax up front
For $199 you can jump right in, grab your free first month of live and your good to go. Then later, buy a HDD. It's a lot like a credit card, buy now and get the extra's later. Cant beat the 250 gig HDD at DealExtreme.

Xbox 360 games don't require installs and arcade games are small. There are some large ones. Lara Croft is 2G, Shadow Complex 800k. Most are less than 300k.

Plus you can plug in up to 2, 16G USB drives for 36G total for $50.

Sample (optional) install sizes:

Castlevania: Lord of Shadow - 12.7G for both discs (6.1 + 6.6)

Again, optional. But I installed both. Runs faster than DVD or HD. With Netflix and media streaming HD is not an issue. Fro the few that somehow find a need for 100s of gigs, chances are the extra cost of the 250G model is not a concern.
blumatt  +   1861d ago
It is pretty useless for most people unless you're the most casual of casual gamers
It's a business move by Microsoft to have the shitty model (aka the 4 gb model). They know people will need more space very quickly and have to use THEIR proprietary hard drives, which are WAY overpriced. For the price you pay for a 120 gb hard drive from MS you can get get like a 500 gb 2.5 SATA laptop hard drive. It's ridiculous. MS SHOULD have took the opportunity with the new slim model to make it open to laptop drives where people wouldn't be raped when upgrading their hard drive for their 360.
pixelsword  +   1861d ago
Yeah, I think it's useless; I got a 500 gigabyte drive for my PS3 for around $100 or less if I'm not mkstaken.
sickbird  +   1861d ago
yea i just put a 500 gig in mine too, amazon $45.
jdigitalseven  +   1861d ago
That would have been unlimited space 15 years ago....but not today of course.

if you dont have enough to get the full experience up front then you wait.
To many people making nuub decsisons buying in bits and pieces and getting screwed out of way more money. trade in your crap x360 and ds stuff and add 100 dollars to that and get a ps3. You will have everything you need for this gen day one with no hassles or down payments crap, you also get way more value and you are not setting yourself up to pay 60+ dollars a year for life or maybe even more if they keep raising the price on XBL.

You are also guaranteed a ton of variety of crazy awesome graphics exclusives instead of just paying cheap multiplats and halo and crackdown which look worse then multiplats lol.

Trroy  +   1861d ago
Why are there so many retailer deals on 360s lately? Aren't they selling like hotcakes?

Or am I calling the chicken first, when in fact it was the egg?
MorganX  +   1861d ago
Perhaps that's "why" they're selling like hotcakes.
earbus  +   1861d ago
