If you haven’t got an Xbox 360 yet for some reason, and you are interested in purchasing one, then check out the new bundle that Microsoft is putting out for the holidays.
Buy either the Xbox 360 Premium ($349.99) or Elite ($449.99), and get two games, Forza Motorsport 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. I haven’t had the opportunity to try either of these games yet, but in lieu of a price drop, this is still a pretty darn good deal. Including the two games, if you would have purchased them, saves you around $70-$90 depending on the current pricing in your region.
Personally, I wish they’d drop the Forza and give a second controller for free in the bundle, but I have to admit that Microsoft is very aggressively promoting their Xbox 360, so much so that I wonder what kind of bundles they will be building next year.
Both bundles will be available starting sometime this month, with no current notice of its end. I wouldn’t bet on this bundle being around after Christmas though.
What would you like to see in a reasonable Xbox 360 bundle? I would love to see it include the wireless dongle, and a second controller as I think that would make the Elite version match its namesake better.
