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.(opens in new tab)
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.
