Microsoft unveils two new Xbox 360 250GB holiday bundles

It seems like every few months Microsoft reveals a new Xbox 360 bundle to try and entice the last few holdouts to buy their console. It throws in a bigger hard drive, includes a new game, or paints it to look like a robot. But it, for whatever reason, none of the previous bundles have convinced you to pull the trigger on a purchase, you'll have two more options this holiday. Microsoft has announced two new Xbox 360 bundles, each aimed at much different audiences.

The first costs $399 and includes an Xbox 360 with a 250 GB hard drive, a Kinect, three months of Xbox LIVE Gold, and two games: Kinect Adventures and Carnival Games: Monkey See Monkey Do. So, odds are, this isn't the one you're going to be interested in. If you're reading this site, we're guessing the second is more your speed: an Xbox 360 with a 250 GB hard drive, Fable III, Halo: Reach, and three months of Xbox LIVE Gold for $299.

Both bundles are apparently en route to retailers right now, so you'll likely be hassled to buy the $299 bundle by the clerk at your local Gamestop when you go to pick up Arkham City. Unless you're buying Kinect Sports 2 today, in which case they may try and sell you on the $399 Kinect bundle. It does come with Carnival Games: Monkey See Monkey Do, after all.

You can also buy them now from Amazon, where both the Kinect and regular bundles are already available for those of you who really don't feel like getting up.

    I still have a white 2006 (thrice refurbished) 360 with an upgraded HDD. 120 gigs is enough for now, but the reach/fable bundle is enticing as i have yet to play either. Maybe if it craps out in the near future.

    Im going to buy one from best buy, $299 for the 360 with 250gb hard drive, and splinter cell conviction, and gears of war triple pack.

    The Fable 3 was so disappointing to me, one of the first games I brought and never finished.

    are those matte? I've always preffered matte over the glossy one, looks great beside my ps3 slim, but I just bought gears 3 bundle :P

    The $299 was a turnoff but i might still get it

    Still, $299 is a bit much in my opinion. Maybe if it came with some better games, like forza 4 and gears 3 I might get it, but they instead bundled two games which are thought by many to be the worst in their respective franchises >:(
