Replace the car with a house and bill payments, and replace the 360 with a fancy car that you might not need--people have to make decisions like that all the time, it's just a good baby step to thinking for the future rather than the right-here-and-now.
Thinking about the future wouldn't be to slave away saving every penny and letting opportunities like this pass you by... This isn't exactly a sports car that will only depreciate as soon as you own it unless you hold on to it for 40 years. This is a DEAL man
Buy it half and half with your brother
Then you sell it and split the profits 50/50
Don't let the deal slip through your hands.
You get to try that Kinect out to see if you want it for a future purchase (my kids love it, I'm 28 myself, and think it's pretty cool, but there is a lack of games that are my taste for it right now. Looks like thats soon to change this holiday season though) and you both make a little money.
