We already heard that the legacy Xbox 360 consoles would see a price cut
with the introduction of the new Xbox 360
slimster. Now Walmart has sweetened the deal with a tempting Father's Day bundle. Up through June 20th, purchasing a newly priced $149 Xbox 360 Arcade gets you a $50 Walmart eGift card (usable only on Walmart.com and Samsclub.com) on top of the two free games (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
and Viva Piñata
), wireless controller, and 256MB of memory already included in Microsoft's Spring Bundle. So really, a console that cost $199 just a few days ago is now selling for $99. Not bad.
** after using your $50 eGift card on crap you'd buy anyway, like Xbox 360 games and accessories.
