Too bad they didn't do their research. Should have offered a PS4. Divorce if old.

... With an incentive like that causing an engagement, I'd wonder which would die first--the marriage or xbox one?

Nintendo bringing Wii U to cruise ships, so you can stay inside and play Wii U while you're on a cruise.

So there are so many available xbones they can afford to just give them to any retailer.

Next up, Free Xbone with the purchase of 60 pack bulk of Depends.

Spend 2k get a ps4
Spend 5k get a TV to go with it

This reminds me of seeing Sega Saturns in the jewelry department of a semi-big retailer a little while before I got a PlayStation.

This isn't a good thing.
