The only way to get rid of those in any speedy fashion is to lower the price and entice retailers to add their own incentives to them in the form of "bonus" gift cards. For someone wanting an Xbox 360 and not minding the hard drive is only 20GB* (*barely over half that is usable by you,) then yeah, your deal just got $50 better.
If anyone thinks I'm going to let a move like this "slide by" as a "price drop" after all the crap everyone gave Sony about the 60GB PS3 price drop being a clearance sale, well… that's just not going to happen. This is 100% "turnabout is fair play" and 0% related to my dislike for the 360. I love tossing Xbot logic back in their own faces. They usually resort to ALL SORTS of hilarity when that happens."
