Best Buy offers empty-handed PS3 buyers 360's

In an article published at GameSpot on Nov. 14 titled, Rumor Control: Best Buy offering 360 deal to luckless PS3 seekers?, the consumer gaming site reported that according to Best Buy corporate offices and a local Best Buy store, the electronics retailer would not offer an Xbox 360 promotion to empty-handed PS3 buyers and that our report, published on Nov. 12, was false. To re-confirm our initial report, the information was obtained from a 25-page internal Best Buy document titled, "Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii Launch Day and Midnight Openings Official Playbook", which details the retailer's protocol for selling the products at launch. In a section titled, 'What do we do when you run out of tickets and have more people in line?', page 18 reads: "Like in past launches, you'll run out of tickets before you run out of customers. There's a launch day offer for customers who waited in line and didn't get a PS3 but still want a high-definition gaming solution." The explanation is accompanied by the following information bullets: * Three days only – Buy an Xbox 360 Pro System and two Xbox 360 software titles ($49 or more), and get a third Xbox 360 software title (of equal or lesser value) free. * Value Package ID 37280. * Offer valid Friday, Nov. 17, through Sunday, Nov. 19. Punch Jump stands by its previous news story and would like to thank readers for their interest in the article. Readers can find a direct link to download the source document below.
