If you’re an American student looking to buy a new Windows 7 PC, then you’re in luck; if you spend over $699 then you’ll be entitled to a brand new Xbox 360 courtesy of Microsoft. Any manufacturer will do as long as you’re shopping at a participating retailer, but Microsoft have their own recommendations. You will also have to provide evidence that you are indeed a student with a .edu email address or a student ID if you’re going out to the high street. Whether this will cause a noticeable jump in sales or not is yet to be seen, but Microsoft does seem to be pushing the 360 while the PS3 has been attracting a lot of bad press as of late. It’s no surprise though, really; the latest software update will see PayPal options being added which Microsoft will tout as adding “extra layers of security.” The offer begins on the 22nd May just in time for the summer examinations and the model you’ll get is a 4GB Slim model released last year. Not a bad deal if you ask me, and it should be coming to Canada and France in due course- where’s the love for us British, Microsoft?[/p] Source Not bad, but $699 still is a pretty expensive PC- I don't think people will be running to stores tomorrow morning to get their PC's and 360's!
