Circuit City scamming 360 buyers

Circuit City 360 scam

The big boxes are notorious for pushing setup fees and extended warranties, but this story really takes the cake. At least one Circuit City is charging an installation fee for Xbox 1 compatibility on the 360. Such a service isn't illegal, but it is totally unnecessary - enabling compatibility can be done with a simple software update on Xbox Live. Moreover, players without Internet access can still have the software sent by mail. Warn friends and family not to be taken in by manufactured problems like this!
