Yes, Please: Xbox 360 Arcade for $99* at Walmart

Now, $149 is already pretty cheap for a console that debuted at $279.99 and was $199 just last week, however, Walmart is willing to do you one better. A new Father's Day bundle means that for $149 you'll get an Xbox Arcade with wireless controller and 256MB of memory, two free games (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Viva Piñata), and a $50 Walmart giftcard.

Sure, you might actually have to hand over $149 but you'll get $50 worth of games/Cheetos/toilet paper/spoons/whatever you buy at Walmart for free.

    I might actually start to think about a 360. Always traditionally been a PC gamer but I do like a few console games not available on the PC. And you can't beat $99.

    With the external storage, remember you can cheaply add up to 32 GB to the arcade console (two 16GB drives).

    Not in Canada, where the price is of course at $200. You know because the Canadian dollar is only worth 98 cents US, which explains the 25% price difference (without rebate). Or I could just drive the 20km over the border and buy in the US.

    I was going to go with Target's $30 gift card deal, but $50 beats $30. Looks like I'll be making a stop on the way home from work today.

    regulasJunk games on a junk system, no thanks.The games may not be great, but they're better than what's on PS3/Wii. PC beats them all hands down.
