Xbox 360: Holiday Bundle includes 2 Games

Christmas Xbox 360 BundleIf 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.

  1. There's too much of a difference between the premium and elite bundle… About half a year ago, some people could have been interested in the elite because it was supporting HDMI out of the box, but now that the premium supports it too, there's no real reason to get an elite… certainly not for the extra disk space, which should add about $20 to the console, not $100.

    • The 120 gig hard drive cost $160 if you were to buy it seperately, the elite also comes with the HDMI cable. While the premium may support the HDMI it does not have the cable, this is at least a $40 item. This is worth the extra bill.

      • HDMI cable, $40?

        You can get a decent HDMI cable on the web for $5 plus shipping.

        And yes, it's of the same quality of these $100 cables.

  2. That's where my extra controller and either built-in wireless or wireless dongle would make it worth the money. Good old Microsoft… they are so funny believing hard drive space is worth so much extra money.
