Best Buy Will Set Up Your Xbox 360…for $30

Aw, Best Buy, that’s so nice of you to set up an Xbox 360 for confused parents and…wait, $30? Seriously? Yes, in case you can’t read that sticker on the front of the box, Best Buy is apparently getting a jump on the “technologically illiterate parents shopping for loved ones” market by offering to help you set up your new gaming console for $29.99. That includes setting parental controls, downloading system updates, and creating user accounts.

Sure, maybe some parents or grandparents might not be able to do all that on their own, but I’d be willing to bet the average recipient of a 360 is.

The parent letting the recipient set up the parental controls might not be the wisest idea :wink:
