LAist Holiday Gift Guide: XBox 360 for $100
We are rapidly approaching the season where we have to go out there and shop for our family and friends. Maybe you're like LAist and hate shopping, maybe you're like the rest of the world and find some pleasure in crowded parking lots, lines at the registers, and hours spent wrapping and shipping off presents.
If you're like us you praise Jah for Internet shopping that allows you to avoid lines, get your crap wrapped for a nominal fee, and shipped off in a timely manner.
Amazon.com, which made a name for itself for actually sending you the junk that you asked for, polled its users as to what product should be on sale on Thanksgiving, and in a landslide the X-Box 360 is coming out on top.
So this Thursday, according to I4U News, if you are on Amazon at 11am and put the X-Box into your shopping cart, you might be one of the 1,000 people who will be able to get the video game console for a mere Benjamin.
Halo, here we come-o.
