A tip has been sent out about a sale that will be going on all week at BestBuy.
There are always sales for 360/PS3 but if that sale is true $129.99 well that is just insane
meh..I'm sticking with my PS3.
As I'm I, but we know that TONS of people would go for a $300 360/Kinect Bundle.
yeah agree on the kinect price that is one reason im on hold with that purchase. I just really started using the move with heavy rain and I cant belive how good that game feels for compared to kz3 Kz3 has to be ds3 with trigger fingers. Speaking of kz3 anyone try playing kz2 after playing kz3. Oh my talk about feeling awkward handling the weapons. Ill have to relearn that one.
I have a PS3, two actually. One in my living room and one in my office. I would buy a 360 considering the red ring issue seems to have been fixed but my only issue is time. A few exclusives is worth it since the time people spend gaming is not as much as many think. Both consoles are worth owning to play some exclusives and some multiplats. My problem is even now with jsut the PS3 I dont find the time to play much. Most of my time goes into sprots games like Fifa and NBA Jam so the time I have left over I will be very picky on the games I will pay to play. Uncharted will be a must have for me as I have loved the series as well as the upcoming Resistance which looks like it will be better than the first one which was one of my favorite shooters this gen. If you have more time on your hands to play as much as you would like and dont have the 360 Im sure this price is very tempting. At this point in time though my only other concern would be how soon before we see the next gen systems.
This same deal has come up at Best Buy at least several times since Christmas, it's not new and probably isn't even related to the PSN issues.
"There are always sales for 360/PS3 but if that sale is true $129.99 well that is just insane" 129.99 +$50 to play online....
Id get my 214 back and could get a new model. I wont do that but it would be a pretty good deal if I did. edit- also people saying MS is being cheap are morons. This sale is given by BEST BUY not MS. Idiots here get butthurt over everything.
wow that is actually an amazing deal...kind of tempted to buy it now edit: apparently the deal is canada only? it says bestbuy.ca at the bottom
aww.... and i was about to go buy one T____T
I might get one. Not bc of the whole PSN situation. I've been planning on getting an Xbox 360 for a while now.
gotta love the disagrees, My good sir you are not allowed to get an Xbox? Whats the matter with you thats treason!
Too bad it's the 4GB version (i.e., gimped). You NEED a big hard drive, and MS rips you off blind on those.
from FEL08 I might get one. Not bc of the whole PSN situation. I've been planning on getting an Xbox 360 for a while now. sure seem to all of us readers you doing this becuz pns situation. its mighty coincidently u just happen to wanna buy a 360 now ...why not posted before april 20th or after the fact when PSN back up and runing u bought a 360.... claiming now make it seem like thats your motive to buy one now.
How is it because of PSN if he wants to buy it when ITS ON SALE for like a shit load off the regular price. You PSN zealots are butthurt about everything. You ever think that hes gonna get a 360 now BECAUE ITS ON SALE NOW. I bet your mad at MS for this sale too, even though it is BEST BUY who set up this sale.
I want to get one now, simply bc of the price. I was waiting for a good deal to get an Xbox 360, and now I feel this is the best time to get one, bc of the price, not bc of PSN being down. Geez, u SONY fanboys need to stop kissing SONY's ass, and stop acting like SONY pay ur bills or something. And that goes to anybody who idolize these companies, who don't care about anything else, but your money.
That's how much I bought my Xbox360 for X-mas last year.. granted it didn't come with a hard drive cause I'm a cheap-o(or Microsoft is.. however you wanna look at it)
and MS still making money on the 360 ? ps i would not have a 360 if it was given to me unless MS lets me have xbox live free for life then i may take it but never ever will i pay to play online should always be free they make enough money off customers without paying to play aswell.
Well, I have a job and can afford to pay for xbox live, so I've got no complaints. And, btw, MS have been making money on the 360 for quite some time now...
Well good luck next gen, I don't see Sony giving everyone a free Playstation Network experience myself because they know people will pay for it and since they're just losing money this way (sure I'd pay for it now on PS3 if it meant I get a better service) and depending on Nintendo's new console's capabilities chances are you may have to pay for that online too (although I'm a little more unsure over that than I am about Sony charging for online with their next console).
Worth it. Given that a new console wont be out 2 years at the earliest, this is the cheapest it'll get.
My birthday is this week, but will 4 gb do it lol?
if you have an old xbox you can take the hard drive off it, open it up and put that hard drive in it...thats what i did for my brother.... then i yelled at him for buying a xbox XD lol if you need help with the hard drive thing let me know!
Umm they did this in the past with the ARCADE MANY times
This will be sold out pretty quickly.
Okay... NOW I'm getting tired of flamebait article titles.
Lol... That may be so, but the title is just stating the obvious.
if you don't like flamebait articles why are you on N4G? There's nothing else on here...
hmm only 4 gigs..that kinda sucks good deal tho wish i had the cash...i love my gaming but still that would almost be too much for me to handle all 3 consoles lol.tho and no offence ment towards sony but i really wish i did have the cash not being able to play online really bites ;/ come on psn go back up!!! your tempting me on a 360! D: Edit: actually i wish i knew how far off next gen is because if it's right around the corner i don't want to be buying any more consoles just yet,i would rather save up money or just wait in that case,i kind of hope we do see the ps4,the next xbox and the wii 2 just so i know how much time we have left and to make my pre-orders but next gen I'm not sure what console I'm going to get it's between MS and Sony not getting Nintendo tho they have gone far to casual for me..but who knows,maybe E3 will show me what i want to know.
As much as I despise Microsoft (as a company even before the release of the original xbox) I can't knock them for taking advantage of the opportunity. It's not like they are mud slinging sony, they are just hoping to attract potential defectors. I'd be more surprised if they didn't do this. Actually I'm surprised they didn't campaign a sale sooner.
Why do you despise MS?
I've entered the I.T. world since the early days before windows 95. Windows 3.11 was the OS of choice for most companies. Apple was doing well but windows was still becoming the default os. it was actually quite awesome. To make some understand how far back. I would install ms office on a computer via the use of 25 or more floppy discs only to find out disc 17 was damaged. LOL oh the times. with that said, win me was trash, me and other techs used win nt as a desktop os, ms didnt like that so they released win 2000 but limited it then killed win 2000 in favor of win ME which was horrible. win 98 was trash until sp 2 was released which was long time. Also look at the history of all of microsoft's partnerships. All those companies were shelved with good ideas or killed off. Partnering with MS is the equivalent of burning down your own house for the insurance money. I also belive xbox live gold is equal to payi9ng for AOL. AOL just has a gui, think the daily for ipad or flipboard. I still support people that dont want to let go of aol. they want to know why they cant access the internet. turns out aol had an outage. i would tell them your paying for timewarner or cablevision or fios, you dont need aol to get on the internet, just open ie or firefox, bam internet. these fools, excuse me, customers, believe they cant get internet without aol. I equate AOL to XBOX Live. There is only one reason XBL Gold exists. People are willing to pay for it. Is it better than PSN. Absolutely. But people pay for it because they think its the only way to get good service. Games for Windows Live (pc gamers refused to pay for windows live, so its free) and steam say hello. The fanboys compare xbox and playstation in the wrong way. Sony will always make better hardware, ms will always make better software. its their core business. The microsoft way = pay us to pay for to get service (p2p, paid services like netflix) The sony way = who cares? put steam, android, ubiplay, ea gun club for free on our hardware. (I wouldnt miss PSN at all, but xbl is still not worth paying for. I can get more for free from my pc) let the third party companies fight it out for who can be cheaper and better. Technically its just two business models. To close my thesis LOL. there is a difference between the xbox fanboy and playstation fanboy. most xbox fanboys are younger. and are only considering gaming. the sony fanboy is older, and has bought video cameras, dvd players, cassette players, receivers etc all before this software and internet boom and one thing can be said. reliable hardware. I dropped xbox due to hardware. I would drop playstation too but i wont go to xbox, i'll go pc. and if i do drop playstation i'll still buy sony products. you'll have to do research to find a better hardware manufacturer. I personally feel sony is the only manufacturer that can compete with apple. As far as geting the same reliable experience. Sony just lacks the software that apple has. Of course this is all just my opinion based on my own experiences. I've been into the tech scene since 1993. Sony could fold.. I still cant believe people did not drop xbox 360 after their faulty hardware. and they call sony and apple fans sheep. there are more failed ms products in the wild than sony and apple. yet we are the sheep. LOL
So because the program was large and took up multiple floppies, you were upset because disk 17 was bad? That's why you hate MS? They didn't print the floppy! Even I knew Win ME was crap and I was only 20 at the time! I remember Win 3.11 and DOS 6.2.
>buying an xbox 360 in 2011
Smart move from MS
Not bad of a deal but that still don't make me want a 360.
o name calling...how i have missed you...thanks for taking me back to third grade montybuns000..... on a side note.....pretty sure he said its a good deal...and you called him a douchebag.... not sure how that works out? you must have a weird look on life..
I've been primarily a PS3 user, but when I bought a 360 I found out quickly that it wasn't exactly sacrilege. I picked up Lost Odyssey, Alan Wake and Fable 2. All good to great titles. I'd say if you even have a mild interest in investing in a 360, now wouldn't be a bad time to pick one up. I'll probably still play the majority of my games on PS3, but the 360 most definitely has enough to warrant that price tag.
MS did not supply enough 4GB machines to Best Buy/Futureshop / Walmart for this deal...so the up shot is that BB and FS put the 4GB Kinect Bundle on for $179. Picked one up yesterday. BTW...I mentioned this deal almost 2 days ago http://n4g.com/news/754056/...
I have like 60 gigs and it's not enough. I have no idea how someone could get by with only 4 but that's just me I guess.
Meh that's money I'd rather spend on PS3 exclusives.
its the same deal last boxing day, where i got one. and also its not just bestbuy, its sale to on futureshop.wow talking about taking advantage eh.
wish bb would that for the ps3 so I can get it sooner a 129.99 ps3 *drools*
Going get a 360 This week you cannot beat 129.99 thats a DS price right there dawg.
This is coming from a ex ps3 fanboy, buy a xbox 360 while the psn is down!!!!! then you will discover what gaming online is really about.
This deal is only for Canada. If only the U.S gets the same deal too!
Hard drives have gone down in price too lately be huge sales at that price.
