Students: Buy Windows 7 PC, Get Free Xbox
Posted on May 22 2011 09:31 PM by xper in Software

You have the mini-fridge, the flat screen, a DVD player, and maybe a tablet. What else does your dorm room need? How about a free Xbox 360 when you buy a Windows 7 PC? Starting May 22, students who spend more than $699 on a Windows 7 PC will get a Xbox 360 4GB console. You can buy any kind of PC, though Microsoft recommended the Dell Inspiron 14r or the Samsung Series 9.

You'll need a .edu email address to buy online; if you want to purchsae in person, bring a student ID. Microsoft said the deal will run until September 3 or until supplies last.

"While a Windows 7 PC is perfect for staying connected to your social networks, surfing the web, gaming and streaming videos, music and more, when you add the power of Xbox 360, you've got a world of entertainment at your fingertips," Microsoft said in a blog post.

Hopefully those new Xbox 360s won't encounter the same problem that some game console owners encountered recently. Microsoft said Thursday that it is replacing an undisclosed number of older Xbox 360 consoles because of a disc issue tied to the console's ability to block counterfeit games.

The problem is certainly not as dire as the hack that took down rival Sony's PlayStation Network for weeks, though Microsoft experienced its own, minor issue with its Xbox Live service on Friday night.

User of Windows Phone 7 could not access Xbox Live services and token-based Xbox Live services were unavailable.
