Starting May 22, students who buy a new PC for $699 or more will receive a free Xbox 360 4GB console, the software giant said in a blog post today. The offer is available to online shoppers who buy a PC from Dell.com, HP.com, or Microsoft's online store. Those who want to head to a retail outlet can find the deal at Best Buy or Microsoft's stores.
Microsoft's free Xbox 360 offer is valid through September 3, or while supplies last. The offer will be coming to Canada and France "soon," Microsoft said.
Not bad, unless it's a matter of paying $700 for a PC that would otherwise cost $400 via other channels, and then getting a $200 4GB 360 S thrown in for "free".
