It’s that time of the year again and Amazon is conducting their world-famous customer vote. What’s so important about this? Just the fact that they’re going to sell Xbox 360 Cores for $100. Yes, that’s right, $200 off. Clearly, this is an outright challenge to CompUSA and their Black Friday $99 Xbox 360. Of course, you don’t have to buy a cell phone to get your cheap ass 360 on Amazon.
Skeptical? We don’t blame you. A deal like this has never come to pass — you can’t even buy a now 6-year-old PS2 for $100 off the shelf. If you, like us, are finding this information hard to believe — consider the following:
- Merryl Lynch spontaneously declared Xbox 360 the winner days ago
- Microsoft forecasts to move 4 million units this holiday, which what they have done cummulitavely last year
- Respected tech sites like TechCrunch are talking about it
- A little bird told us it’s a done deal
That said, don’t expect to walk into Wal-Mart any day of the week and pick one up. Keep your eye out for the deal in key retailers, because it will be here any day now to disrupt other next-gen product launches. There are other options in the Amazon vote, including the Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princess Interactive, Mongoose Domain Dual Suspension Mountain Bike, and a gift certificate, hot dog! Microsoft has some pretty stiff competition. Be sure to go and vote for Microsoft in the competition of the … week.
