With the release of "the most anticipated game of the year" right around the corner, retailers know that consoles and accessories will jet of the shelves. So what better way to join the celebration then by adding a Halo 3 dollar tax to many Xbox 360 accessories?
While other retailers are pricing the 360 add-ons at Xbox.com's MSRP, Best Buy thinks adding three dollars to that is the perfect theme to tie-in the Halo Three launch. As many devotee gamers will pop-in to jump-in, why would they suspect they aren't getting the Best Buy?
I'm sure somebody will care about this. Got my Legendary Edition pre-ordered. Going to toss the head peice though.
once we take this game to the register, nobody will even have tax on there mind. we'll just be anxious to play it.
I work for Best Buy, and after Christmas last year, all of those accessories listed changed in price to what is currently on the website. In other words, those prices are MONTHS old.
This is NOT an attempt at price gouging with the Halo 3 release, but they ARE charging more than suggested MSRP for some 360 (and other) accessories.
In light of the evidence, the title of this story is grossly misleading.
