Charge it with an Xbox 360 credit card
Not only is this Xbox 360 credit card stylish and comes with the ability to get you a complete home entertainment system without having a dime to your name, but it also comes with a few discounts on Xbox 360 games and hardware. (15% off Gears of War FTW!) If they decide to bring the 360 card Stateside, we'd consider signing and jumping in with VISA. Though, we would require the card to be customized with our Gamertag. That's the deal breaker.

To make it better, why not give users MS points for every x dollars spent? If they can do that, I'm ready to get their card!

It's an interesting idea, but I think for a lot of people it would get out of hand. Normally, you get about 1% back on your purchases. So if you spend $2000/month on your card, that's $20/month, or 19,200 points every year. Very few people would use that many points.

Do people actually put $2,000 a month on a interest charging credit card? No wonder the US is in such bad economic shape.

My wife and I put about $1500 on our credit card each month. We pay many of our bills using our card so we can get the 1-3% cash back. We pay off our balance every month so we are never charged interest. It is very beneficial for us to use our credit card in this manner because we end up making money off of bills that we have to pay anyways. Anyway back on topic if Microsoft was going to offer some incentive to use thier card I would pick one up.

Get a Capital One card that you can customize with you own pick, and put the 360 logo on it. You won't get your bonuses, but still, if you REALLY want a card with the 360 on it...
Plus, Sony has had a credit card for years - the Sony Style card.

Because of the relative low standard of living, I believe, people in Indian were having to buy 360s on credit. The Indian 360 launched with a MSRP of 23,990 Rs (560 USD). The average monthly wage in New Delhi, where the 360 launched, is about 300 USD. So, yeah, of course they are offering credit cards. Its the only way most people could budget it.

One more thing: Look on the posted link, ICICI offers a *bank loan* to buy an xbox360.
