If you value function over form -- or, rather, Fantasy
over form -- you may want to examine an alternative to purchasing the newer, slimmer Xbox 360. Amazon's current Deal of the Day
is the Final Fantasy XIII
Xbox 360 bundle, which has had its price reduced by one Grant, down to $300.
As you might remember, the bundle comes with a copy of the game and two controllers, and Amazon's throwing in a Final Fantasy XIII
-themed faceplate to boot. If those bonuses excite you more than a slimmer design and reduced chance of RRoD-related failure, then you may want to spring for this deal before it ends later tonight.
