Xbox DVD kit give-away

Only in America so far though

Source - press release

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.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
