'While we don’t comment on speculation of this kind, we do have a very strong point of view on the future of entertainment to offer you today.... We’re in the business of breaking down old technology boundaries to create a borderless world where work, play and home become one virtual reality. No matter where you are, you can reach out and touch the people, the information and the entertainment you love, any time, on all your favorite devices.... Because FiOS TV is such a powerful, interactive, cloud-based service, it is a natural match for devices like game consoles, and we've demonstrated our ability to blend FiOS with gaming systems at events like the Consumer Electronics Show.... We’re not announcing any new products today, but stay tuned for the future!
Buy the Arcade system from Walmart for (effectively) $99, take it home, move the hard drive from your existing Xbox onto it, then trade your old Xbox in at a Gamestop. They're running an 'extra $25' deal on trade-ins of console hardware until November 8th, according to their website. Gamestop doesn't advertise what it normally offers for trade-ins but I've heard from users anywhere from $50-$75. For the sake of argument let's assume $50, but with the bonus (as long as you go by November 8th) you'll get $75. So for an outlay of $199 you wind up with a brand new Xbox to replace your old one, and $175 in store credit from Walmart and Gamestop. Not a bad deal.
