Before we get a little carried here, the #GetAnXbox deal is only open for students in the USA and Canada, which can be a little bit annoying for those students in Europe, the rest of the world and of course, here in the UK. Anyway, the deal works like this, the student or rather their parents will fork out at $699 (£445) on any qualifying Windows powered PC and Microsoft will throw in (not literally!) an Xbox 360 with 4 GB absolutely free, what a deal!
According to the announcement by Microsoft spokesperson Brandon LeBlanc on the Windows Team Blog, he says;
The school year is wrapping up for many but for those who are graduating high school – thoughts are already on the upcoming school year this fall and starting college. Starting college can be a big adjustment and we’d like to help with that. Starting May 20th in the U.S., students who buy a qualifying Windows PC worth $699 or more at participating retailers can get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free, just like last year! Starting May 18th in Canada, students who buy a Windows PC worth $599 or more can also get a 4GB Xbox 360 console for free!
