People who recycle a mobile phone and use the money gained from this to sign up for a new device with O2 may be in pole position to get a great deal on the latest gaming range.
Kinect for Xbox 360 is being stocked by the network but will be available exclusively to its own customers.
The package on offer from O2 includes one of the consoles with 250GB of hard drive capacity, the Kinect software with Kinect Adventures and a choice of memberships to Dance Central, Xbox Live or Kinect Sports.
Richard Baylis, general manager at O2 Retail, says: "With great value offers on consoles and accessories, we're really excited to be offering our customers exciting gaming products in our stores."
The title is expected to be one of the top sellers this Christmas, so in order to ensure children are not left disappointed it may be worth recycling a mobile now and investing in Kinect.
In other news, the network recently launched O2 Learn – a scheme awarding prizes for the best school lessons that are recorded with a mobile and submitted.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you trade-in your old mobile phone you could use the money you get to get a Kinect console. The deal from O2 is certainly competitive!"
