I't a subject I've been thinking about a lot since last night after buying my grandchildren an Xbox.
At 52 years old xboxes are not something I'm desperately familier with but I know Adam my six year old grandson loves them so thought I'd go buy him (and Jesssica my grandaughter who's 4) one between them. Keep em happy when they come to see me now the nights are drawing in and its too miserable to play out.
Had the brand new 250GB one on offer at Tescos for £189 (aprox $300) so thought I'd pick one up and a few games last night...
My God have you seen the price of Xbox games, The cheapest I could find was about 30 quid (nearly $50) and they went up in price something crazy.
I ended up getting them just the one between them (I hope you like car racing Jessica) at a cost of £40. (well over $60). I was too mean to buy any more.
Reminds of of those little machines you can get for diabetics to prick their finger and test their blood sugar levels). They sell really cheaply, yet the little sticks you have to buy to use them cost an arm and a leg.
Point I'm making is this, If you've got a product you could sell as a bit of a loss leader, you could probaly clean up on related stuff to go with it.
I'd love to hear ideas from people on how they would go about doing this
