Enhance your living room with this Amazon exclusive Xbox 360 Entertainment Bundle featuring over $50 in bonus value!
Xbox 360 Entertainment Bundle Includes the Following for only $229.00:
• Xbox 360 4GB Console
• Xbox LIVE 3 Month Gold Membership
• Xbox 360 Media Remote
• $10 Amazon Instant Video Credit
• 3 Xbox LIVE Arcade Games ($30 Value)
Good deal IMO, esp. if you don't pay tax on Amazon. I read through it, didn't say if you can select ANY 3 $10 arcade games or if you are stuck with what they give you. This bundle is good for someone who will use the Xbox more as a media hub where no HDD is not a big deal. The 250GB model was recently $250, although currently OOS... if that comes back and you want it more as a game console (as opposed to just a media hub), that might be a better deal.
Edit: Per the attached thumbnail, XBLA games are Lode Runner, Snoopy Flying Ace and R Type Dimensions
lol, still trying to sell their 4GB console for more than $200. When will Microsoft learn. They should be selling 250GB systems with 6 months of xbox live gold and a wireless controller/headset for $250.
any advice on if this is a slick deal vs just a good deal?
been waiting on an xbox360 deal for a while, specifically from Amazon.
This is basically "Buy 4 GB Xbox 360 and 3 Months of Gold, get a media remote, $10 Amazon Instant Video Credit and these three games (not great ones, imo) free". If you don't need the extra stuff, not a slick deal, but not a bad deal either.
Hit me up if you're looking for a game!
For those wondering whether it's a good deal, here's the breakdown of what you'd expect to pay for each component separately:
Xbox 4GB console - $200
3 Months of Xbox Live - $12 (1 year is $48, divided by four is $12)
Amazon Instant Video Credit - $10
Media Remote - $17
Lode Runner/Snoopy Flying Ace/R-Type Dimensions - $35 ($10/$10/$15)
I'd say it's not a good deal at all. The first three items have a value of $222, but the rest of the bundle is essentially worthless. The three XBLA games are all old and none have a Metacritic score higher than 80. The Media Remote is superfluous for most users. If you can find some use for the remote or believe that you'd buy at least one of those games independent of this deal, then maybe this bundle is worthwhile. Otherwise, you're paying $230 for $222 worth of items, plus some throw-ins.
It's the same price. The 250GB is $270 only because it comes with Uncharted 3 GOTY and $30 of Dust 514 content (a free FPS MMO set in the EVE universe, exclusive to PSN).
If you factor in the cost of Uncharted 3 GOTY ($40), the new system is actually cheaper, and with more hard drive space.
About the deal: Gamestops just added games to their bundles: Kinect Disneyland and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. They also come with 1 Month of Xbox Live and Hulu Plus. Same price as the systems normally retail for.
