To this point, I’ve avoided making the plunge into next-generation game console ownership, for fear that my live would devolve into 24×7 couch-ridden, bleary-eyed, hardcore, first-person-shooting gaming.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. In fact, now that I’ve said it out loud, it sounds like delicious digital Shangri-La. But I digress.
The Lords of Gaming are making it harder and harder for me to avoid getting an Xbox and to put an end once and for all to my unabashed gaming-rig mooching. Buy.com is currently selling factory-reconditioned Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium Systems for the low price of $199.99.

Oh, snap! That’s a factory-reconditioned Xbox 360 including a 20GB hard drive, wireless controller, headset, AV cable, Ethernet cable, and AC adaptor, for $100 off the recently-dropped regular price. Plus, shipping is free!
If you’re in the market for an Xbox 360, bust a move: “quantities are limited” for this sale, and this is already the second-fastest selling item on Buy.com.
Suddenly my fingers ache to enter credit card numbers into a Web-based form.
But wait, there’s more! New Buy.com customers, once you have the Xbox in your shopping cart, come back here and click the following link, and presto! Five bucks off.
