Microsoft reveals new Xbox 360 holiday hardware and game bundles


May 4, 2013
While Microsoft wants people to buy its new Xbox One console, the company still would love to see a lot of its current Xbox 360 units sold during the holiday shopping season. Today, Microsoft revealed the Xbox 360 2013 holiday game and hardware bundles it is offering for those of you who have yet to purchase a console, or want to get one for a friend.

The 4 GB Xbox 360 bundle with the Kinect add-on will include two free games; Kinect Sports 2 and Kinect Adventures. The 250 GB Xbox 360 will have two different free games; Halo 4 and Tomb Raider. Finally, the 250 GB bundle with the Kinect add-on includes three free games; Kinect Sports 2, Kinect Adventures, and Forza Horizon. All of the bundles also include one free month of Xbox Live Gold.

Normally the 4GB-Kinect and the 250 GB Xbox 360 bundles would cost $299.99 and the 250 GB-Kinect bundle would cost $399.99. However, Microsoft has said that starting on Sunday and running through January 4th, 2014, many U.S retailers will cut $50 off those prices. In addition, we suspect that some retailers will cut the price of those bundles even more as we approach the dreaded "Black Friday" sales event on November 29th.

Well since the Xbox One is coming out soon I'm not surprised.

But really what would be the point of buying this a current generation gaming console instead of waiting for the next generation console which comes out soon? It's slightly cheaper yes, but it will be outdated and the online services will most likely be discontinued soon.
