All three bundles include one free month of Hulu Plus and EPIX and are also eligible for a $50-off promotion
As the holiday season approaches, we can expect to see more and more competitively-priced video game bundles to attract customers -- and next up is
the Xbox 360
There will be three new
Xbox 360 bundles available in stores
this holiday season, which include both the console and different games, but only two offer Kinect as well.
The bundles are as follows:
250GB Xbox 360
A 250GB Xbox 360 console with "Skyrim" and "Forza 4 Essentials Edition" as well as one month of Xbox LIVE Gold for $299.99 USD.
250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect
A 250GB Xbox 360 console, Kinect, "Dance Central 2," "Kinect Sports," "Kinect Adventures" and one month of Xbox 360 LIVE Gold for $399.99 USD.
4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect
A 4GB Xbox 360 console with Kinect, "Kinect Disneyland Adventures," "Kinect Adventures" and one month of Xbox LIVE Gold for $299.99 USD.
In addition, all three bundles include one free month of
and EPIX. All bundles are also eligible for a $50-off promotion.
All three bundles will be available at GameStop, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, Toys 'R Us and Wal-Mart. It was not mentioned when these bundles would hit stores.
There is one sure release date, though. Customers can get their hands on a Xbox 360 Limited Edition "Halo 4" console bundle on November 6, and the $50-off promotion applies to this as well.

RE: These consoles should be 100 bucks now

Its coming next year has 4K video ability and the possibility of video output to two HDTV's. Its logical as I know a few people who have rooms with two 42" HDTV's and two X-Box's with a family plan. Some people seem to be going that route as parents do game with thier kids or have more than one kid and co-op games are common.
There is also the Kinect we were supposed to get originally the new one is HD with improved detection down to fingers that it can detect sign language. Chances are you will see the PC version of this sooner than the X-Box 720 version next holiday season. The difference between the PC version and the X-Box version is distance the PC version is short range.
There is also an indication Microsoft may go with triple screen output and even a triple video output trick to dupe you into a more immersive experience if you cannot afford a second and third screen. Microsoft is using ATI graphics chips in the XBox 720 All this is already possible on the current 7xxx graphics chips from ATI.
Rumors are there will be a BLU-RAY version to cover game size. I wouldnt be surprised if we see ones sold without and store everything on a hard drive like steam. Maybe you use the disk to verify game ownership. Expect to have an internet connection required for piracy issues but ultimately who cares what inside games will be written with the lowest common denominator for the highest possible sales. So Wii-U written games with higher texture and physics added to the PS4 and XBox 720 versions. Im not dissing the Wii-U they will all be fun and have their particular genre of gaming. Im rather fond of Kinect titles not all are good but I want to snap the football and throw it down field not hit a button on the controller.
To each their own and game on.
