  • MrHawkeye1996

    Xbox one in 41 days!!! :D

    • slasaru

      With xb1 in 40 days i see no reason, why Ms cannot give or properly discount like in PSN+
      Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
      Remember Me
      Oddworld Strangers Wrath HD
      MotorStorm RC
      Wonderful games! And we are getting Halo 3 (((

      • Burnt Offering

        I get what you are saying, but I don’t understand your logic when you say that next-gen you have your Xbox One pre-ordered. If PS+ is a better service and a major factor in determining an individuals purchase (to the point you said they would be a fool not to purchase a Sony product for it) then why wouldn’t you have a PS4 pre-ordered? The PS+ promotions are planned to continue as they have whereas the GwG promotion ends in December. Right now both companies are doing their best to either take your business or to maintain your loyalty to their brand. If MS is not living up to the standards of the competition, which you obviously find valuable, then what makes you think their paid service will become more valuable in the future?

        • Lucas Sanches Cestari

          because microsoft can be alot better than sony, they are just being led by the wrong people

          • slasaru

            Exactly! But Major is doing ok. We need more people like him in MS management

        • slasaru

          Im saying only for the category of gamers for which those new xbox 360 packs are advertised. There is much more value for peoplewith ps3, unfortunately. I do not know anything about next gen. Sony said it would be foolish to give free games at the start. So the situation will be much the same for both consoles. Instgad of giving games for free next gen, Sony is planning to release many free to play games. I think, MS will also have some

      • Mikael Soltaniha

        I’m with Burnt Offering. You’re saying PS+ is superior and so is PS3.. why on earth do you have the Xbox One pre-ordered? You make my head hurt.

        • slasaru

          Im saying that for casuals and new gamers that decided to stay on last gen, now PS3 provides more value than xbox360 because of huge game library available just for 50 usd. I m not saying anything about next gen – we’ll have to see all. But launch games lineup is way better on xbox.

      • Hogwild333

        I think it is fair to compare the two programs and encourage Microsoft to up their game. He obviously loves Xbox, their franchises and wants to stay loyal plus lots of people are getting both consoles.

      • O Mosqueda

        You can’t simply compare these 2, although they are both damage control measures, one for low sales and one for huge screw ups. The screw ups were easily solved, but the low sales for Sony are still a big issue. If you are losing millions in unsold units, it’s better to give away things (at least in appearance) to get more users, but if you only lost some trust on an existing user base, some freebies that don’t hurt you in the wallet will be pretty enough (to bad they are not so good most of the times).
        I just don’t get it one thing, you love PS+ which is likely to be in PS4 and yet you’ve preordered an XBO? Am I crazy?

        BTW, I think I lost the bet on GTA V posts at this blog entry, but now that I brought it up, I guess I just opened the floodgates.

    • todd Wright

      i have never gone to a midnight release but this it going to pop my cherry

      • Dylan

        Will you even be able to play it? With the amount of people signing in to get the day 1 patch, the servers may crash and it may not work.

        • todd Wright

          oh well the biggest reason im going at midnight is to try to meat new friends i just moved and dont know anyone

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            mmmmmmmmmmmh meat friend

          • todd Wright

            lol that was my bad

        • GmailIsDown

          will be a great stress test for MS’s new cloud of servers they have been boasting since the Xbox One reveal

  • tabicat

    I’m curious to know when MS will stop manufacturing Xbox 360s. Then again, I doubt if even MS knows that.

    • Guest

      After 2017.

    • O Mosqueda

      I wouldn’t worry about that, what worries me is XBL support. I still want to enjoy it for some years, hopefully, by 2020.

      • roozbeh, again

        They said at least 3 years.

  • Guest

    Those Tomb Raider codes are going to end up on eBay for cheaper than GoD prices sooner or later.

    • Death Dealer

      Yes, I’ve already seen a couple offered for about €13.

  • roozbeh, again

    Can I have that gold code please?

  • Hogwild333

    The 250 GB bundle without Kinect is listed as $300 which means it will be $250 after the $50 off. That is right in line with a 250 GB Uncharted 3 PS3 bundle. I’m surprised that the pricing isn’t more aggressive. I guess you do get one extra game in the 360 bundle.

  • ElektroDragon

    Please release a larger hard drive for the 360! I’ve started buying all my games and DLC on my 1TB PS3 because my 320GB is CHOCK FULL!!! And my 32GB key is almost full too. Soon I will need to attach a USB hub with several 32GB USB keys. Insane.

    • O Mosqueda

      A USB hub might be hazardous. MS should at least try to address this situation by rising the USB memory cap, 35 GB is pretty ridiculous. What I don’t understand is why can’t they make a 1TB HDD if XB360 HDD’s are basically laptop HDD’s with a special format.

      • Death Dealer

        FATX formatted drives can theoretically reach 2TBs, so MS should release larger drives and preferably remove the 32GB format limit on external storage.
        Attaching a USB hub to the Xbox 360 is not hazardous, but the Xbox 360 won’t recognize more than a couple of external drives at a time anyway.

      • ryder4life22187

        It’s probably because the average user thinks 320Gb is huge. I get that at work ppl coming in and saying that they will never use that much. Personally i’ve used 380GB of content so I got to be careful what I DL as can’t be bothered for another usb device. Shouldn’t have to use a 250GB HDD and 2 usb drives get with the times MS.

      • usrev

        it’s not even a special format, it just has a file on the drive. a few years ago you could buy a 500gb HDD for $70 put said file onto the hard drive, plug it into your 360 and BOOM a $70 500gb HDD for the price of a 120gb xbox branded hard drive.

        MS didn’t like that and released a patch to wipe data on non-licensed hard drives.

    • EldritchWarlord

      You may only attach two USB drives to your 360 at a time.

    • GmailIsDown

      i’m already using multiple USB keys and swap them as needed.

  • roozbeh, again

    One of the saddest realities of xbox is that kinect adventures is the most sold game on the platform.
    Sigh.

    • http://deulus.com/ Derek D

      That’s the first time I’ve ever seen you say something negative about Kinect / Kinect platform. …….. FINALLY! LOL

      • roozbeh, again

        No, it’s not negative about the kinect. It’s just depressing too see games like Halo and Gears of war etc having less sales than the most boring kinect game of all time.

        • Dylan

          The downfall of Rare…what a waste.

          • roozbeh, again

            Still a sad reality

  • Death Dealer

    Sorry MS, but pricing that top bundle at $399, only a hundred dollars under the price of the Xbox One and the same price as the PS4 is showing signs of delusional grandeur.

    • CDMAss

      It looks like they are still hiring old people to do the marketing. I would definitely getting a PS4 for sure.

      • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

        yah because they have 20 yrs old marketing team, what a lucid comment

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      naked ps4 compare to a fully equip x360. That bundle is definitly aim for people that never had a x360 and want to invest because of the huge game catalogue. The 300$ bundle seem reasonable.

      • usrev

        nearly every good 360 game is also on ps3 though it doesn’t make sense. it’s not like the PS2 or ps3 where there was dozens of High end games that people would get.. other than gears of war and halo there is little reason to pick up a 360, for that it would be easier to buy a used 360 and cheap hard drive, or just save for xbox one/ps4.

        • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

          of course it all depend on the game you want and budget you have. aftermarket is a good place to receive money deal. i’m just saying that 300$ doesn’t seem too high for a new console have much to offer and that would apply to ps3 too. but i prefer the xbox live service, that’s why im here. i dont play GoW and Halo and i still prefer X

    • Does Not Equal

      For many people, a system that will still be supported and that has a massive library (much of which has gotten substantially cheaper over time) would be a better purchase than an untested system with only a launch library.

  • Gazza!!!

    Looks like some one is trying to get rid of the unsold Kinect+kinect adventures stock and how is this a value bundle seeing as kinect adventures is literally worthless.

    • Does Not Equal

      Literally worthless? Then it would cost nothing.

      • Gazza!!!

        It should cost nothing with this offer but in the case of the 250gb console deal you get the privilege of handing over an extra $100.

        • Does Not Equal

          Then it’s figuratively worthless.

          • Gazza!!!

            …and your point is?

          • Does Not Equal

            A grammatical one.

          • Gazza!!!

            Oh right so a pointless comment for the sake of it.

          • Does Not Equal

            That would be incorrect.

  • Ricardo Rico

    great bundle, Tomb Raider is a great game, that + the 250GB HDD is very good

  • NJPW

    who in their right mind would buy that first bundle when you can get a next gen console for the same price?!

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      tell me where to get an X1 for 300$

      • NJPW

        The first bundle listed on this post is $400 just like the PS4

        • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

          at that price, do you have PS move and games with the bundle ? i tend to agree that it is way to pricy at this point of the console life, but i like to compare apple with apple. the 300$ bundle is reasonable. No one need the 250go HD, 4go is a start and a usb key is easy to find in almost any home

          • slasaru

            You actually have a bunch of free to play games for “naked” ps4. Driveclub, deep down and others.

          • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

            you mean, exactly like on xbox 360 ?

          • roozbeh, again

            A naked ps4 includes ps plus forever? as drive club is ps plus only

            Hmm, naked PS4…

  • Florida Tryhard

    I feel sorry for the poor kid that gets this for Christmas

    • StudioMultimédia Gon’Interacti

      i’m not, i wouldn’t have receive such a pricy gift as a kid, i paid all my console but the SNES and got the snes many years after release… If you meant that you feel sorry because they won’t play outside and because they will play mature game, etc. then yes, otherwise, hell no. This is a great 300$ gift.

  • Walter White

    I’ve been looking to get a 2nd 360, but these prices are insane. These are obviously geared toward first-time 360 buyers than those looking to add another console for a different room. Much cheaper to get a used one at Gamestop. Plus, I would rather have the “S” than the “E”.

    • GmailIsDown

      these are geared toward the soccer moms who don’t know or care the differences between xbox 360 and xbox one, ps3 and ps4, wii and wii u, etc. they want something for their kids and these are shiny new gaming console bundles.

  • MrRadiolips

    You have got to be high MS. This is a joke right?

  • roozbeh, again

    $400??? ARE YOU MAD???

  • kingcrusher

    Hmmm, not exactly the consolation prize for people who can’t get an XBox 1 I thought they’d do. They should be practically giving away 360s this holiday.

    • MrRadiolips

      PS4 looks pretty good compared to this price.

  • MrRadiolips

    MS…why are you so comtent on burying yourself?

  • usrev

    pretty sure you can buy a fat 360 for about $100, you can get a 120gb hdd for $60, controller for $40, tomb raider for $20-$30, and halo 4 is at best buy for $10 right now.

    why would I spend more than $200. the 500gb ps3 with GTA 5 is $270….

  • Chuck

    Better hope these don’t outsell the X1, that would be embarrassing.
