    Target has them clearanced at $24.98, and they are the old ones with whacked and motoGP. The free year of XBL offer expires somewhat soon(it's listed on the box). If your Target has lazy employees who don't tag stuff on time, you may even find one for $12.50 in a week or two.

    Shouldn't the free year of XBL start when you register??

    edit.

    I see, So the offer of a free year with the purchase of the starter kit expires soon, and then after, all you get with a starter kit is a headset and software??

    Or, are the starter sets themselves being discontinued and to go live all you need to buy is the headset by itself?

    Got mine just now, although my Target has the newer versions with Tetris worlds et al. priced at $34.98.

    Got one and a ethernet cable for $41!

    As Jeff said, I also ran out and picked one up, but mine was $35 and was version 2. Thanks for the tip.

    I'd just like to point out that this is an awesome deal for people who got Xbox live when it first came out if you don't mind changing your gamertag.

    I have not tried it to make sure it works, but it SEEMS like you could go out and buy a kit, register another gamertag with the new kit a little before the free year offer expires, and basically get your second year for $25 if you find a version 1 kit.

    Hmmm, might have to get that. My headset's broken and I really don't feel like paying $30 for a new one. It'll also be nice to change the gamertag, but I have to make sure to piss everybody off and get at the top of the score boards by playing myself over and over again first. [​IMG]

    Great tip, I picked it up at Target last night for ~$35 (version 2). It was still listed as $50 outside the case.

    This was my first foray into XBOX Live and I really enjoyed it, it will definately be worth my money when Amped2 comes out (I really loved Amped for some reason and I await it's sequel with way more excitement that Halo2 or PGR2, but I think I'm in the minority here).

    Thanks again for the tip!

    I'm sorry, I'm a little confused. If you get this from Target on sale do you still get a year free XBL service?

    Thanks

    Yup, Carlo, the kit comes with one year of XBL service. You just have to register it really soon.

    Question.

    I was a beta tester so I have had Live for about a year this month.

    If I go out and buy Ver2 at Target for $34, can I wait and activate it in November?

    Will MS contact me to resubscribe my old account or automatically charge my card?

    If so, how do I tell them to not renew my account?

    Thanks,


    I didn't get $50 worth of Live last year but for $35 which includes Tetris Worlds, I just may jump in again (especially for Halo2)

    Doug

    I noticed on the Xbox Live site that the new dashboard will let you view your subscription information.

    I definetly want my current sub to end.

    I have a DSL connection and a wireless router, and I'd really like to try out XBL w/ a discount kit from Target. Is there a way for me to get into XBL w/o running cable from upstairs to downstairs? Thanks for the help, and hopefully I'll see some of you online soon.

    Kevin -

    Yup, do a search of all forums of "Wireless Xbox" and you shall find all you need. I use Xbox wirelesses in a home network, no problems ever.
