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 am active military and I have a canadian fiancee who lives 35 minutes from the US Washington Border. Spring update and all of a sudden none of the downloadable content works. "This content is not available in your region". My fiancee brought this for me. It has lived at her house forever and now micro$oft forces me to take a fancier looking mod/update that HAXORS all of my attempted downloadables. No help from microsoft on this either. Licensing yadda yadda Rights. FTC where are you. I want a full refund since my Wii is my primary gaming sytem and this 360 box is now completely useless to me conveinently 5 months after I bought. Im so tired of this. When I first bought it I couldn't buy points until I called in. Then all was fine until this stupid update SPRUNG into my box. They might tell you to make a new Player ID in the region you are in ie Canada or Japan. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME! Canadian player ID's have a total of approx 10 downloads combined games and videos. Maybe it has to do with the CRTC that everything needs to be english/french in canada, I have no idea. I have a feeling everywhere else is much worse after all Canada is N.America last time I checked. I will place this on as many sites as I can as long as I am ticked off. Nice one hollywood. Screw your troops when they most likely have nothing else to do for some much needed relaxation behind enemy lines.
