When I went to get my Xbox 360, I was worried I would be one of the group that would not get one of the “bonus media remotes” that Microsoft had said would only be in the first shipment of consoles, but mine included one, and I have not used it once so far. This does not mean I want them to get rid of it though, as it could be very useful to have later on, especially when I get a new television so I can hook up my Xbox 360 directly to the television to watch DVD’s.
So imagine my surprise when I heard that it was going to be discontinued soon. Apparently, and this is just a rumour at this point, but the next batch of Premium Xbox 360’s will not include the bonus remote.
If you want one of the cool little bonus remotes, you better find an Xbox 360 before they are not included anymore.
