So basically you got a free Xbox seeing as how the game and controller itself would already add up to like 100$

Yeah pretty much. I also got to buy it in $20 payments which was cool.

Wouldn't be surprised if they do this for the next generation of consoles.

Kind of like a cell phone. That would be depressing if that happened. Yet another good reason to stick to PC

Not really... PC's have to be upgraded constantly to stay relevant.

While a console stays the exact same, and gets no graphical upgrades over the course of it's life...

Yeah but that's $300 for 10 years, or $1000's for 1 year... I'm not discounting the validity of PC gaming, I'm just saying, the art is growing obsolete... I remember back when I cared for PC gaming, when I used to build my rig up... Ends up costing like $1200 for something worth getting, and even then, that technology will be obsolete in a matter of time... Whereas you can get a console, that will play THE EXACT SAME GAMES, with the EXACT SAME GRAPHICS, and a better controller... I know most people love the keyboard and mouse more, but personally, I prefer a controller... I respect your opinion though.

I'm not a PC gamer. Too lazy to build a rig but you can't deny it's the better option.

Just save up your money for a couple of months and not have to pay more money in the long run. $300 isn't that much...

Yeah, but neither is the extra money you spend over the long run... I mean, it's not even just 300$ otherwise, it's 300$, plus live, plus games, plus controllers etc...

I can and will... The price difference alone sets it apart.

Dude you are talking about a 7 year old console. Of course it will be cheaper than a new top of the line pc.

Unless you're 13 just save money and buy one outright. People want things now and are willing to lose money to get things now. If you just get ahead in life you wouldn't have to worry about it.

Even when it was new, hell, even the next one, will always be cheaper than PC gaming.
