I read this article posted on Monday March 29th, 2009 over at a Xbox 360 gamer website I browse often basically said:

Due to lagging sales of Microsoft Vista Microsoft has begun bundling Vista Basic (not HOME BASIC!) with every new Xbox 360, along with a online coupon to upgrade it to Vista Ultimate for $99.00 online at thier site.

Microsoft spokesman Josh Nya said, “This is an unprecidented opportunity for those who have been waiting to upgrade to Vista to do so at a bargain because we’ve bundled it with the Xbox 360. And for those who have purchased a Xbox 360 or Vista in the last 6 months we’re offering the same bundle deal with proof of purchase by calling 1-800-MICROSOFT.”

Yes!!! So if you’ve bought Vista— or a 360 in the last 6 months— run on over and read the details on this promotion because they are bound to have a backlog once word gets out.

And Once you get confirmed be sure and let us all know here at the IT Knowledge Exchange!!!!
