    I guess that saved all those copies of Darksiders 2 from landfill.

    • James McClelland

      I was thinking the same thing.

    That’s a great bundle, and it reminded me that I still need to get Darksiders 2.

    • ElektroDragon

      Would have been better with the 320GB.

      • http://twitter.com/williamronholm WillRon

        Yes it would.

      • http://www.facebook.com/lakaumbucha Ricky Ricardo Lakaumbucha Pean

        Yeah by the time you download those games you’ll only have about 215 gigs.

        +1 to that. I need a new console and I already have a 250GB HDD that’s almost full.

    Darksiders 2 was great. shame it sold so poorly

  • Kromis

    I think the Game of the Year edition of Arkham City should have been included

    This will be Available in other countrys? Like México i need a new console and i want that games toó please say yes

    Can’t you guys just release an Xbox with a HDD for under $200? Stop bundling and start making these things affordable for people who don’t have a lot of cash to spend. $300 bucks is still a lot of money if your daddy isn’t giving you money.


    I’m actually waiting for the new system now

    wasn’t the superior holiday bundle $250? I rather have skyrim than arkam city, and forza 4 could probably be traded in for darksiders 2, both those games are like $10 retail now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Curtis-Isabell/1036013363 Curtis Isabell

    guys need to calm down about this bundle, it isn’t that good… you can get darksiders 2 new for $15 and last year arkam city was $10 new, month of live isn’t worth much, the only thing that comes with this that is of note is the hard drives which are always over priced.

    You are buying a console and hard drive + 2, $10-$20 games for $300 about 8 months before the next consoles come, it isn’t worth it.

    • http://profiles.google.com/harrypottersdaddy Harry Potter

      Yeah, I agree this is hardly a deal. They should just get rid of the games and just put the system with a hard drive at 200-250 already.


    So let me get this straight, Darksiders 2 is the actual game while Arkham City is a download? No thank you. I don’t buy or support digital games when there is a disk based version available. I don’t care if the digital game was $5 bucks and the retail version was $60, I still would never buy a digital version of a disk based game over a physical copy. NEVER!

    And people wonder why the only Digital games I own are XBLA titles and 2 Games on Demand games… RE4 and RE:Code Vernonica. The only reason why I stooped to the level of buying those digitally is because they can’t be found anywhere else for the console.

    What’s the point? Well, if the rumors are true, you will not be playing any 360 game on the new Xbox console.

    • http://www.facebook.com/HarvetusNS Nick Harvey

      More than likely, they’ll do what they did on the 360 and make you pay again for the digital copy

  • http://twitter.com/pblair1966 PJ Blair

    Sounds like a really cool bundle.

  • http://twitter.com/MKTheory John Doe

    People who can’t handle their games is the reason why the disc is scratched and most likely don’t know about the installation feature on their console.

    Those digital games you bought are technically not yours to keep. For your sake, hope your account never gets hacked to the point of no return because you will not get those games back nor a refund. And you’re getting ripped off as it is from Games on Demand having over priced games, while a physical copy is yours to keep forever and cheaper.

    And what people do you hang out with that will steal your things?
    If you’re worried about a break in, your console is gone too buddy.
    And being lazy to change disc is the saddest thing I ever read.
    And no room in your entertainment center is no excuse, you have a whole house or room to store game cases.


      Well said John. I think alot of people are going to learn the hardway about the digital content they think they own. After hearing what Sony just did by not allowing PSN purchases to transfer over, I’m not buying a single thing from MS untill I know for certain how our digital purchases are going to work on the next xbox.. IF they are going to work that is..

    Whine to Epic Games about that, not Major Nelson

  • http://twitter.com/MKTheory John Doe

    A DIGITAL copy of Batman? WHY?! Why does Microsoft hate people with no Internet access?


    And you also have no instruction manual, no case, no physical disk and here’s something you probably didn’t know.. Our Retail disks are going to be worthless as well 10 years from now why? Because of the way title updates are handled. They need to mandate that all title updates for every game save to the HDD and not the cache, and even then the title updates need to be backed up or we won’t be able to play those game down the road when either our hardware fails, our hdd fails and also in the future.. they won’t be giving title updates for games 10 years down the line.
    Digital games scare me even more. Not trying to attack you in anyway Mike but you are being Niaeve when it comes to your digital purchases. Please listen to John Doe’s reply as he knows exactly what he’s talking about.
    You don’t understand the love affair with disks probably because you dont own any kind of collection of games like I do and many others. Just trying to inform you to be weary about digital purchases in general.

    Ways to get rid of more consoles before the announcement?


      This is exactly what I was thinking as well.


    $300 for a console thats going to be outdated come November. Im really surprised that it ships with games, thought MS would give out free trials to Apps instead.

  • Russell Gorall

    Too bad it comes with Microsoft hardware.

    That is a unique approach.
