Microsoft Xbox 360: "D'oh! Edition"

It looks as though the Xbox 360 Elite isn't the only new variant of Microsoft's gaming console. The company will also give away 100 Xbox 360s that are dressed up to promote "The Simpsons Movie."

Despite the fact that these are limited edition consoles, they won't be based on the newer Elite, but rather the older Premium system. That means no 120GB HDD and no HDMI output. Lucky winners will also miss out on getting a copy of the newly announced THE SIMPSONS GAME which isn't due to be released until later this year.

According to the press release, Microsoft will be giving away the 100 consoles in a "series of special events and promotions." Microsoft points fans to http://www.xbox.com for further details, but the site has not yet been updated with additional information.

The Simpsons movie will hit the big-screen on July 27. The various Microsoft promotions will take place during the weeks leading up to the release of the movie.

I hear ya. SP pretty much ripped FG a new one. I was really into FG during its first run, but I find the new stuff less funny and more edgy, whereas SP continues to do both extremes very well.

SP FTW.

The Simpsons have been irrelevant since 1996. :P I don't exactly remember when I stopped being entertained by The Simpsons, but if I've got a half hour to kill, I'd rather do anything else than watch The Simpsons.

BTW Brandon,
Very funny play-on words: D'oh = dough = money. If it wasn't intentional, oh well, but this is certainly a "cash-in edition".

The Wizard of Evergreen Terrace is one of the funniest ones around and that was Season 10. The make-up shotgun, recliner with a toilet built in and the good old electric hammer...hilarious.
