Xbox DVD kit give-away

Only in America so far though

Microsoft will be offering a mail-in rebate to American Xbox buyers between now and November 2nd to give them a free DVD movie playback kit with their console. Normally the kit (without which the Xbox won't play DVD movies) costs up to $30 in the US, while the rival PlayStation 2 supports DVD playback out of the box at no extra cost. Given that both consoles cost just $199 in America, no more than a decent stand-alone DVD player, this is sure to make the Xbox an even more attractive proposition in the run-up to the holiday seasons. Hopefully something similar will be introduced here in Europe, but as it's a national holiday in England today we haven't been able to reach Microsoft's local office for any comment.
