Microsoft launches Xbox 360 credit card in India
Seriously. Microsoft has teamed up with ICICI Bank to “enable customers to enjoy the benefits of Digital Entertainment products” by issuing the Indian middle classes with Xbox 360 Visa cards.
This diamond-studded status symbol will get you discounts on Samsung, Kodak, and Xbox 360 products. For example, when you purchase a wireless controller with you 360 Visa, you get 10 percent off. There’s also a 15 percent discount on Dead Rising, Dead or Alive 4 or Gears of War when bought with the super-plastic.
