500GB Xbox 360 Arriving In October, Includes Two Call of Duty Games for $250 - Report

Special edition system launching October 7 with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Black Ops II, according to Wal-Mart listing.

A special edition 500GB Xbox 360 bundle that includes a blue console, blue controller, and copies of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II will launch on October 7. That's according to a Wal-Mart ad scan posted in the Blu-ray forums.

The bundle will reportedly be exclusive to Wal-Mart. We have reached out to Microsoft for more details about the bundle, and will update this post with anything we hear back.

The special edition Xbox 360 bundle wouldn't the first console made available exclusively at Wal-Mart. Just last week, Nintendo announced that Wal-Mart will be the exclusive retailer for a new Wii U system bundle that includes a copy of juggernaut racing game Mario Kart 8.

The Xbox 360 currently comes in 4GB and 250GB options. If the 500GB system is indeed real, it would be the first time Microsoft offered the console with a hard drive of that size. Just last month, however, Microsoft started selling 500GB hard drives for $110.

The Xbox One, of course, has a built-in 500GB hard drive. In November, Microsoft will release a 1TB Xbox One console in a bundle with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Why do they still announce new 360 models. At this point most are looking for a current gen system

@ArchoNils2 True but the 360 still sells quite well despite being around for close to a decade now. It still has a decent bit of life left inside.

I'd actually like to have the new version of the 360 to match my XB1. I also need a bigger hard drive because the 250GB I have is full. I constantly have to erase stuff when newer stuff is added.

Might as well make a bundle with Madden 25 and Madden 15 while you are at it Microsoft.

i would expect AW instead of BO2  and ghosts....but this bundle itself is just strange.

They'll probably be digital copies.

There's value there, to be sure, but I'd like to see a non CoD-overload bundle and, more to the point, feel like with the new gen in place it's time to move on. People can trash the X1 all they want but it is vastly better hardware than the 360

I'd buy this and transfer all the data from my original XBox to this new system. My original XBox only has 120GB on it. I have a feeling Microsoft will have more bundles like this during the holidays though.

If your in the market for an Xbox 360 console E 500GB is the way to go. With 2 call of duty games for the dude bros in the family.

This would be a good deal, but the CoD games make it a rip off

Breaking News just in:


Nintendo has decided to make the HDD bigger for the Wii-U. They have announced a massive 50GB console launching with the new Smash Brothers

Still cheaper to buy a WD Black 500GB HDD..

The two games must be compensation for buying a whole new last gen console with a $45-$60 HDD in it.  Yay for technical ignorance!  Package would be more attractive if both games weren't the same.

homey_d_clown

I guess that's one way to fudge the numbers.

Keep giving us sales numbers for the last gen consoles and not this gen.

This is so stupid for so many reasons... but c'mon seriously, i purchased a ps4 from craigslist like 3 months ago for 270 (was asking 300) and it still had 3 digital games on the hdd (ghost, fifa 14, 2k14) not to mention the free ps+ games that were on the ps4, no headset, but whatever... this is a complete rip. let LAST GEN rest in peace.

smackdowner360

@daimprov Its a hell of a deal for a new system with 2 games and a warranty for people who hasnt bought one yet.You bought a used ps4 so if it breaks your out of $270.I bought the Xbox one on launch day for $500 with a 4 year warranty.Still last gen is still a big part of gaming just because some of us has went next gen doesnt mean last gen is over.

What's the point? I bet MS really wishes they were still in the last gen.

sladakrobot

@SnakeEyesX80 I think too. Not only MS,also some devs said that there was still plenty of life in the X360 and the PS3...the need for the X1 and PS4 was not there so early.

jtthegame316
jtthegame316

well seeing as you can buy a 500gb saparate then why not do a package where it is included with the console for any cheaps that buy a 360 now in stead of just buying a one

PosiTVEMinD355
PosiTVEMinD355

Or you can just buy the 500gb HDD.  It's been on Amazon for a while

smackdowner360
smackdowner360

@PosiTVEMinD355 This is for people who hasnt bough a xbox 360 yet.Evn if they buy the hdd you still need the damn system to put it in.$250 isnt bad at all for a new 500GB  Xbox 360 and 2 games

StephenSays

Digital download, No thank you.

You also spelled Advance Warefare wrong.

$249 ??? might as well save up for the Xboxone or purchase used.

Kinguard73
Kinguard73

Well why not. It's not like the One is selling considering all the consoles collecting dust unlike PS4 which keeps selling out.

smackdowner360

@Kinguard73 Not selling?The X1 is the second fastest selling console of all time at this point in its life cycle and its only in 13 countyrs.It will be in 29 more this month.As far as the ps4 selliing out every store has them now.Wow some of you fanboys are beyond stupid

sladakrobot

@Kinguard73 Big difference,collecting dust in the stores(X1) and collecting dust at home(PS4)

How the f*ck are they selling a 10y old outdated pos for $250? What is this and how dumb you must be to spend that much on a dead system?

Gatman32

You're way more angry about this than what you should be.

Tuckpoint

@Gatman32 I get told this a lot as well.  Just what in your presumptuous mind tells you this person is angry?  His/her use of four letter words or calling outdated hardware a POS?  An opinion doesn't make you angry, sad or happy.  You just choose to read every comment like it's being posted by some rage monster because you can't handle someone with a potty mouth.

@silversix_ A dead system?The Xbox 360 has sold 85 million units and over 50 million members.Its anything but dead

@silversix_ Obviously, if its still selling for $250.00 it isn't quite a dead system, genius.

@silversix_ Obviously, if its selling for $250.00 it isn't quite so dead, is it genius?

@silversix_ Obviously, if its still selling for $250.00 it isn't quite a dead system, genius. The viability of the market dictates the viability of the price. So what if its 9 years old. Its got a of fun games, and the graphics are decent. If you want to start a next gen console (low end pc) superiority kick- I'll start talking about my gaming rig. And I'll throw some PC Gaming Master Race lines at ya, for good measure. My comment is ridiculous, huh? Thought I would match it with one as ridiculous as yours.
