Still ... 190 smackers? That's even cheaper than the rumored price cut.

In our continuing effort to bring you fresh and interesting content, X3F presents Would You Rather ... a weekly feature that asks you the hard questions. The point? If you had to choose one or the other, which would you go for?
This week's WUR was a user submitted question that really made us think, especially coming back from our local gaming store. At 1,200 MS points a pop, the Xbox Originals platform seems like a steep entry into the "classic" prev-gen titles. While many of the games can be found for a lot less than their digital counterpart, some of the recent additions are going to a premium price if they can be found. What we hear from the community is that the pricing structure of the XBO program is out of wack for the most part.
This week we want you to forget about the price in the equation and consider the content only. How important is physical media to you in the wake of the increasingly digital age? Do you prefer to stack your games to line your room like a protective castle wall, or are you fed up with hard copies of the game and wish you could get everything digitally? Let's pretend we're made of money this week, if only for a moment, and ask yourself when it comes to those Xbox Originals...
Feel free to share the reasons for your vote in the comments. We'll share the results of the poll during the next edition of Would You Rather ... which hits X3F every Wednesday.

The only notable offer Circuit City has running this week is Two Worlds for $40. Not all that exciting, so let's move on over to Best Buy. They have Saints Row for $20, The Orange Box, TimeShift and Madden 08 for $50 and they're also offering a $5 gift card with the purchase of any family friendly or social title including Viva Pinata, Viva Pinata: Party Animals, Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal, PopCap Arcade: Volume 1, Rock Band, Guitar Hero III and Scene It? Hopefully you got all that, because our linking abilities are taxed. Target is giving out free $10 gift cards with the purchase of either Madden NFL, NBA Live or FIFA 08. Finally, Kmart is offering a $25 gift card (mail in offer) with the purchase of an Xbox 360, $10 off all EA Sports games and an offer where if you can buy one game you get another for 50% off. Select games only, CoD4 and Proving Grounds included.
Our head hurts now, deal searching is mind numbingly difficult. So, if you spotted a great deal online or in-store this week feel free to share with your fellow fanboys. Just don't hurt your head, today's hunting has put us out of commission for the rest of the day.
Update: Added new deals from Wal-mart and Buy.com.
In a few days, on November 23rd, Black Friday 2007 will officially kick off and millions of dollars will be spent. Lines will form outside of retailers hours (some even days) in advance, shopping madness will ensue and some of the best deals will be ripe for the picking. It'll be crazy like it is every year, but if you're brave enough to venture into the Black Friday death trap then we figure the least we can do is point you in the right direction. So, we painstakingly dug through all the day after Thanksgiving ads, found all the Xbox 360 deals and posted them for you after the break. Best Buy, Circuit City, Gamestop, KB, Kmart, Radio Shack, Sears and Target ... they're all there. But you should also know that a lot of retailers (like Wal-mart and Toys R Us) will be doing online mystery deals Thursday that'll go hand in hand with their printed Black Friday offerings
Take a gander through this year's Xbox 360 Black Friday deals and prepare to be unprepared. The black is upon us!
"One Xbox 360, please."
"Very good, sir. That will be £33."
This is the conversation we imagined ourselves having with a Tesco employee on our imaginary trip to jolly old England. It could have happened too, as Tesco recently (and accidentally) listed a killer Xbox 360 bundle for the low, low price of £33.24 (~$70 US). The offer included an Xbox 360 with wireless controller, Viva Piñata, and Forza Motorsport 2. It was, in short, a hell of a deal. From the looks of things, someone neglected to add a zero to the bundle's price, which should have been ten times larger.
As one might expect, the mistake has since been rectified, though not before customers managed to place orders at the discounted price. One customer had payment accepted for thirty-nine orders, though they have yet to be delivered. Apparently it is illegal for a company to change the price of a product once payment has already been accepted. The Tesco website, however, states that if a mistake in price is made, the company is not obliged to abide by the mistaken price so long as the customer is contacted prior to the item being shipped. We get the feeling there will be lots of disappointed bargain hunters out there.
Todo Juegos (translated) is reporting that Microsoft is planning a new promotion for Europe. Said promotion should run between November 1st, 2007 until January 31st, 2008. The gist of it is pretty simple. Just get a friend to purchase a new 360 at some point during the promotion, attach a copy of the receipt to a special coupon (PDF link), mail it in, and both you and your friend will receive ten free Xbox Live Arcade games. The games reportedly offered are:
- Sensible World of Soccer
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
- Bomberman LIVE
- Marble Blast Ultra
- Spyglass Board Games
- Small Arms
- 3D Ultra MiniGolf Adventures
- Assault Heroes
- Zuma Deluxe

Anyone find any other good 360 deals lately?

Guitar Hero II is coming out tomorrow (even though some of you have your hands on it already) and we feel that our blogging duty requires us to tell you about the best deal out there. Enter Circuit City's gracious offering. This week at Circuit City, when you pick up Guitar Hero II for $89.99 they'll give you a FREE 1600 Microsoft Points card. Yup, that's a $20 value kids. You can then use those points to purchase the recently confirmed Guitar Hero tracks that will be on the XBLM next week or just splurge on random XBLA games or themes. Now, who says corporate retail giants don't care about the consumer's best interest?
