Virgin Megastores dismisses Xbox 360 bundle rumours

Virgin Megastores dismisses Xbox 360 bundle rumours

"spokesperson for Virgin Megastores has dismissed rumours that the retailer will force consumers who have pre-ordered an Xbox 360 to purchase a minimum of three games before they can take their console home.

Speaking to our sister site, Eurogamer, the spokesperson dismissed the rumours as "simply not true," stating: "Virgin Megastores customers are not obliged to purchase games bundles."

The rumours stemmed from a report on which claimed that pre-ordering customers had been told: "If you still wish to collect your console on launch, you will have to purchase three games with the console bundle." The article has since been updated with Virgin Megastores' response.

According to reports from the likes of Oregon's Channel 6 News, US retailer Best Buy implemented a similar policy over in the States - and as a result, shop staff were forced to turn customers without enough cash to buy the bundle away. Best Buy has since said that anyone who felt forced into buying extra products can return them." [more]
