  • Question

  • In what looks like an attempt to steal the thunder from rival gaming consoles, Microsoft Entertainment & Devices Division has today announced an exciting offer around the Gen-Next Xbox 360.

    Under the offer, gamers can exchange 'any' old gaming console in return for a brand new Xbox 360. This - for the price of Rs 15,990, which is much lower than the current market price of Rs 19,990.

    The interesting part is gamers stand to get a new Xbox 360 in exchange for just about any old gaming console, whether it is a PSP or PS2 or Nintendo DS and so on.

    Further building on the offer, Microsoft has introduced a new price range for its Xbox 360 gaming titles.

    For instance, the company said Dead or Alive (DOA 4) would now be available for just Rs 999, and coupled with Forza Motorsport 2 and Gears of War (GoW), for Rs 1,895 only.

    Speaking on the occasion, Mohit Anand, Country Manager, Entertainment & Devices Division, Microsoft India, expressed the view that they expect this promotion to further stimulate the gaming boom in the country by giving gamers an attractive price point to get hold of their very own Xbox 360 consoles.

    The exchange offer on Xbox 360 is running at Microsoft retailers across the country. It is available for a limited period.
