FYI ... if you live in the Pacific Northwest of the USA, then Fred Meyer has a 20% off coupon valid Friday 8/31 to Monday 9/3 that works on the Xbox/PSN "accessory" GC's ... only this time, there's no upper limit to how much can be discounted.

Head to our sticky thread for more info & which GC's work with their coupons:

But if you don't, the following coupon is pretty cool ...

And says the following on the "digital coupon" itself ...

Were this week's 360 deals ever announced outside of Modern Warfare 2 game and DLC being 25% off?

 

i checked late last night and major nelson's blog still didn't have anything for 360. it just said deals TBA.


The "Sales & Specials" page links to both the Capcom & Rockstar publisher sales with discounted 360 games:There doesn't seem to be anything 360'ish associated with the LOTR sale, which is too bad, because people probably would appreciate the 2 LEGO movie tie-ins, their DLC, and "War in the North" going on sale.  And technically "Guardians of Middle-earth" is still for sale digitally, along with some trippy avatar gear. And you know what, I would've killed if they brought back "LOTR: The Return of the King" as an Xbox Original ... that was an awesome movie tie-in game w/ tons of the movie's audio, plus all actors' likenesses were retained!

I know it's been talked about, but I don't know if the official stuff about it has been posted. I think it's a really cool idea and I hope it's successful enough that they do it for their next console(s) so I can get in on that.


Hopefully I'm not repeating someone else's info, but the same idea was floated by MS back in May 2012 as a 4GB Xbox 360 for $99 upfront w/ 24 months @ $15/mo totaling $492 for what was a basic system @ $320 value ... https://www.theverge...contract-launch

 

Thankfully they killed the support nightmare before it ever reached 24 months old ... https://www.gamespot...n/1100-6418286/ ... because these 360's were usually tied to expired credit cards, and retailers like GameStop couldn't turn around the hardware used as trade-in's.

 

Nowadays you're getting a basic 500GB system, only MS has learned its lesson by getting out of the lease-to-own game, and having people instead willingly downgrade their credit score with a Dell Preferred Financial plan.  The math is still pretty bad for CAG's, who could find easy deals making this $589 commitment only cost $409. But for the general public that's not plugged into console news or sales, it's probably an easy sale for the high-pressure Microsoft Store reps to offer "100 free games" for the low price of "just 10 cups of Starbucks coffee" a month. :lol:
