They were matching a GameStop price. Our roommate bought three PC copies: One for Laurie, one for our friend Leo, and one for himself (since the PC version that came with his former PS3 copy can't be activated while the PSN is down).

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Probably shouldn't buy this one, even at that price.  Considering everything I've heard that they did to improve it with the Enhanced Edition, I wouldn't bother.

Can't link the image since it's all Flashy.

Okay, this is odd...

Are you a student? Are you buying a new Windows 7 PC? Well, Microsoft has a gift for you - a new Xbox 360.

Quote
REDMOND, Wash. — May 19, 2011 — Microsoft Corp. today announced a new offer for students who purchase a new Windows 7-based PC. Starting May 22, students buying a new Windows 7-based PC priced at $699 (U.S.) or more will also get a free Xbox 360 4GB console. Students will be able to choose from the wide range of stylish, powerful and innovative Windows 7-based PCs to find the one that’s right for them based on the features, color, size and price they want. The offer is available at participating retailers for current students in the U.S. while supplies last. Similar student-focused offers will be coming soon in Canada and France.

“A hot new Windows 7-based PC with a free Xbox 360 is the ultimate productivity, social and entertainment package for students,” said Kathleen Hall, general manager of Windows Marketing at Microsoft. “In one shot, with this great offer, Microsoft is giving students everything they need for a successful new school year.”

Today’s Windows 7-based PCs come in a wide variety of styles, sizes and colors, and many new PCs boast built-in Blu-ray drives, 3G connections and leading-edge technologies, such as 3-D displays and multitouch-capable screens. With more than 1 million devices and apps that work with a Windows 7-based PC, students’ smartphones, printers, digital music players and cameras will work with their PCs with ease right out of the box. With the addition of Microsoft Office 2010 for Home and Student with OneNote, students can create presentations for class, take and organize digital notes, manage group projects and assignments, and easily stay on top of class schedules. And with an Xbox 360, students can not only have fun gaming but also can enjoy a range of entertainment options, including streaming videos, sports, music and more.

To take advantage of this offer, students or parents must provide valid student identification as defined by the participating retailer. More information about this offer can be found at http://www.windows.com/freexbox.

Over on Impulse today, 4 out of 5 of the X-Com titles are $1.24 each. (X-Com Interceptor is a no-show, for some reason.)

You'll get more than a buck and change's worth of entertainment out of X-Com. Trust me.

And about a thousand dollars worth of frustration, too.  :)

(Worth it though)

Oddly, the next X-COM game will be an FPS. Works for me - I'm not big on RTS'.
