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, 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 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 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...

This thanksgiving, give thanks for the fact that your family wasnt 1 of the 3 to have picked out a wasp filled turkey, buying a meal and becoming a meal. Next year, may not bring such.....dissapointing results.

So I'm pretty sure you all should be giving thanks to Nekro. For he is the one true perfect being. Be thankful that your lives have been blessed by the addition of a Nekro. For that is the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving Dtoid! Here's hoping you didn't fall off a chair while hanging Christmas lights and bash your shin and foot into the concrete like I did!

Listening to Pokémon SoulSilver OST while doing some college work. Suddenly I feel a great amount of guilty taking over me for loosing my PokéWalker 2 years ago... :(

Ok you thanksgiving motherfuckers. 5 favourite Arcade games (as in coin-op) No order necessary. Go!

Happy Turkeygeddon everyone! I'd like to spend it playing something, but I'm too busy drinking instead. Alcohol is better. Alcohol mixed with games is best, but unfortunately, I'm a little too lost to the world for that right now!

I've got to try Pocket God vs. Desert Ashes. Mostly because I loved pocket god when it came out. Great memories

I intended to say something important and relevant to how pretty Atelier Shallie Plus looks on the Vita but then I got this annoying sudden nosebleed [img][/img]

So Macy's parade had that performance from "The Wiz" which made me realize I'd much rather have seen "The Wizard" where everyone is dancing around wearing power gloves. Come on Nintendo, THE TIME IS NOW!

Transformers Devastation PS4 - $24. The Order 1886 $10. Digital flash sale on PSN. I think I'm going to have to bite on both these. And I hate digital if I can avoid it ...

Remember folks, don't forget to smoke cigarettes in between courses during thanksgiving to help in digestion.

Playing New Vegas again because reasons, it occurs to me that it'd be nice if Old World Blues gave me the option to move the Brotherhood of Steel to the Big MT instead of wiping them out for Mr. House.

Near heart attack as for a minute it seemed like the A button of my 3DS was busted. It's fine now though, I think we'll live.

There's now a £4/$5 Raspberry Pi. So cheap it's a cover extra on the latest Mag Pi. Based on the original chipset, it's single core but clocked at 1Ghz so it's quite a bit faster and oh so tiny. I can't wait to see what folks build with it.

After a lifetime of not spending a single cent on FTP games, I finally broke and dropped €1 in the Nintendo Badge Arcade. I just had to have all the Luigi badges asap. I feel dirty. Plus side, my 3ds will be covered in Luigi.
