How much would you spend to try to win a new Kinect? $10? $20? If your answer is $2600, you are probably Henry Gribbohm, a man who says he lost his life savings trying to win the motion-sensing Xbox accessory.
Gribbohm, who went to a carnival and sat down at one of those clearly rigged games in an attempt to snag a Kinect — which typically retails for $200 or so — told WBZ-TV that he spent $300 on the game, lost, went home, got another $2300,and spent it all. He did not win an Xbox Kinect.
He did win a banana. (Pictured above.)
Gribbohm claims the contest was rigged — and he's filed a police report, according to WBZ-TV — but, really, $2600? Come on, dude.
