Microsoft today announced three new Xbox 360 Holiday Value Bundles that will begin to populate at retailers around the world shortly.
All bundles include one month of Xbox Live Gold, as well as various pack-in games. More details are available at theXbox website.
4GB Kinect ($300) - Includes Kinect Sports: Season Two and Kinect Adventures.
The Xbox 360 Holiday Value Bundles will be available at retailers worldwide. United States retailers are holding a special price promotion where shoppers will get $50 off each bundle October 13, 2013 through January 4, 2014.
Even with the extra $50 at some retailers in the US, that top bundle is uncomfortably close to the cost of an Xbone. I mean, why pay $400 for the old system, and the old Kinect, and an old Forza game,when for just a measly one hundred dollars more you could get the new hotness system, the improved Kinect, and the newest Forza? The 250GB standard bundle with $50 is much more appealing, although it would still be a tough sale. For not much more you can get a 500 GB PS3 with GTA5.
I'm still not a fan of the 360 pricing scheme. They should have a $99 360 by now.
