Xbox 360 Elite / HD-DVD bundle (plus 7 HD-DVDs) for $569 shipped

5:18 AM on 08.12.2007 // William Haley

Man I miss the good old days of just walking into a store and buying whatever I wanted. Videogames, candy corn, Gerber Graduate meat sticks… nothing could stand against my reckless spending and care-free attitude. But times have changed, and now that Nex’s girlfriend is spawning my offspring, I need to be a little more responsible with the cash flow.

Recently my umpteenth 360 red-ringed on me, and instead of rushing out to the nearest Target and just throwing my wallet at the first stoned teenager in a red shirt I see, I’ve instead been scouring the Internet looking for discounts, deals, and coupons. Coupons! Next I will be paying with pennies at the grocery store! I even went so far as to register on Cheap Ass Gamer, and that’s like Peter Pan growing up. I HATE registering on forums.

Finally though, my epic journey ended at Amazon.com, where this lovely Xbox 360 High-Def Bundle gives you the 120GB HDMI-equipped Elite, an HD-DVD drive, 300 and King Kong on HD-DVD, as well as the 5 free HD-DVD’s included in the ongoing promotion for buying the HD player, all for $599, minus a 30 note if you get the Amazon platinum, business, or student credit card. What all those H's and D’s equate to is a pretty good deal, as the Elite and HD combo alone would run you $630 plus tax otherwise.

This is not quite the steal that Sony has going on for the PSTriple, but it’s nice nonetheless with the benefit of not requiring you to have a 6 million FICO score. And look, you didn't even have to register anywhere to see it. Hit the jump for more details on this offer and the ever-elusive Amazon.com customer support number should you need it. I'm going to go wait on my porch and imagine that the truck carrying my PS3 and the truck carrying my new 360 are battling it out on the way to my house like in that scene from Days of Thunder, only, you know... with trucks.

The offer will randomly appear on the front page if you've recently been browsing through Amazon's selection of gaming goodness, but here is a direct link to the offer itself. Doing a search for the bundle will currently not return any results either, which is slightly annoying. The total cost for these three items comes to $657.93, but the price "will be adjusted during checkout". 

If you have any trouble, I took the liberty of hunting down the ninja-like phone number for Amazon.com customer service. Ask for Chelsea, she will fix your problems and make you fall in love all at the same time. Unfortunately she's probably a 45-year old crack whore living in a trailer park while simultaneously breast-feeding five children of varying ethnicities, but whatever. Her voice is HOT

And last but not least, don't forget your transfer cable and 5 free HD-DVD movies. I like how they put two Angelina Jolie movies in the same category. I'm still trying to decide which one sucked less, but since Tomb Raider had side-boob and no eye-patch, it's probably going to win. Probably...

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

Downloading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth. It feels a little weird to be installing a game on the Vita that isn't porn, if I'm being perfectly honest.

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
