Walmart Deal

#100rageragePosted 11/22/2012 11:59:40 AM
Was on Walmart.com, and they have the deal with the 4gb Xbox + Kinect for $99 when you sign up for 2 years of xbox live at $14.99 a month.

This is a terrible deal for any ignorant buyers!

How many months late are you?

The fanboys will still defend this no matter how badly the math proves them wrong.

It is a terrible deal but could help people who are on tight budget (whether they should be buying an Xbox if funds are tight is irrelevant) or to help build up your credit score.

How do you figure? $460 for 4 gb xbox is absolutely horrendous when $100 for a 250gig bundle is the new 'sale' norm. It appeals to the same sort irresponsible buyer who buys into rent to own scams at horrible inflated places. A lot of people won't ever use kinect, either.

The point of the deal is for someone who can't afford to spend $200 plus a game they want on top of xbox live. This gives them an option as if paying their cellphone.

But yes for all of us on Gamefaqs who are constantly looking for the best deals its terrible.

Terrible idea to pay so much if you can't afford it in the first place. American spending habits and credit-line consumer mentality in a nutshell.

Layaway, or save up the money, or find a system on sale.

And you only need gold to play online or use certain apps, and you get a free month of gold with a new account.

Until you save up enough for more gold you can still download tons of demos free, or get free months of gold from bing, or just choose not to use gold at all.

This "deal" is only for gullible suckers with more money than brains, or for rabid fanboys dumb enough to support M$ no matter how greedy they're being.

It isn't supposed to be a deal. They never advertise it as a deal.
