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.
