    Why would I want free faulty hardware with a poor library of games?

    I knew it would require atleast a $700 desktop.
    Almost thought it was a deal there for a second.

    @ ramonsterns: Quit your bitchin. The new 360S console is quiet and reliable and the library of games for a 360 is very, very good.
  7. It's not actually free. Dell, HP, and anyone else participating in the program just upped the price to cover the costs of the XBox360 package deal and claim it is "free". I checked with some sources today about this.

    Sorry folks, no free lunches allowed, even though these companies are making money hand over fist.

    the new xbox 360s have a much much much much lower failure rate than the launch

    if you get a NEW 360 today and it fails toy are very very unlucky (same with new PS3 systems)
