Two new Xbox 360 holiday bundles for $250

Mircrosoft isn't letting Nintendo have all the holiday discount shopping fun: IGN reports the tech giant today announced two $250 holiday bundles, featuring games and accessories aimed at core gamers as well as families.

The core-gamer centric bundle packs in a 250GB Xbox 360, download codes for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Forza Motorsport 4, a headset, and a wireless controller. The family-friendly bundle includes a 4GB Xbox 360, a Kinect sensor, a wireless controller, Kinect Adventures, and Kinect Disneyland Adventures. Both packs also include a month of Xbox Live, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Epix Movies.

Sony got in on the holiday hijinks early with its new super-slim PlayStation 3 model and reduced price, though interested parties shouldn't hold their breath for a PS Vita price cut this year.

    If I wasn't already getting the Wii U this November I would consider it, but I don't think I could make time for 2 new consoles. But I could try...

    Huh. Well, that was...unexpected. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this undercut or at least match the range of the 12GB PS3 Superslim? Because for what it's worth...this seems like a much better value prospect. I never did own a 360 and my old PS3 just bit the dust...gah, no, I don't think it's worth switching this late on, not with how few exclusives 360 seems to have in comparison. Good move by Microsoft though.

    That's not too bad actually... Not a big fan of the games being downloaded copies though but still... I would totally get this if my bf didn't already have a xbox (although... his seems to scratch discs extremely frequently, so it's tempting)

    This might be my ticket to finally getting a new Xbox 360! Woot!
