Xbox 360 250GB Console Bundle
I own the white xbox 360 console and i just decided to upgrade from it to this slim. It was probably my best decision in my life. The slim is way better since it doesn't make much noise when playing and it has great games on it. I love xbox live although i only go on to play halo 4. People say that xbox live is expensive, but i get free xbox live from bing rewards which is what most people do. I also like how they added built in wifi to the system unlike the older version. The home menu is pretty good too compared to the ps3 one. When you're downloading a dlc or something you can play another game while downloading it. You can also turn off the slim and it downloads while it's off, unlike the ps3. The games that come with this console are pretty okay. What i like about the xbox 360 is that it can connect to the music from my laptop by windows media player and i can actually listen to my music while playing a game (unlike the ps3). You'll notice that i'm bashing on the ps3 a lot in this review, that's because it was one of the worst decisions in my life. The xbox 360 only has some minor flaws that i can think of. One is the on screen keyboard feels pretty bad and that's about it. Overall i think the xbox deserves a 10/10 because it's my most preferred console to play on and i haven't really countered much problems with it (owned this slim for 1 year and owned the white xbox for 5 years). Another bonus from getting this console is you can free 1 month gold.
BEST DEAL EVER!!!!!!
got this deal when it was on sale.its been 8 months and it stll works as good as when i first bought it.i would reccommend to anyone cause its much better than the ps3 and pc combined.
i love my xbox360
i love my xbox i love how it came with two games a controller and a headset that is not terrible but not to good either, the new consoles are coming out but i will stick to my xbox360 that or buy myself a ps4 because i heared the xbox one wont be a good buy, but i might get it just for the heck of it.
This system runs very quietly, and the hard drive is very large making for amazing versatility. Skyrim and Forza are both great games as well. My one and only complaint with the slim is the lack of a Blu-Ray drive. Regardless, it's a truly amazing console that I recommend to gamers of all levels.
Definitely the Best Console Bundle!
I bought this bundle back in November. You guys may think it was my first Xbox, but no. I had one since October 2010. I just wanted a new one. The performance is just perfect. I never had any problem with this console. No overheating, red ring, or anything like that. It functions very well, and loading the dashboard doesn't take long at all. Everything is enhanced from the original Xbox 360s. However, you may notice I gave value an 8/10 instead of 10/10. The reason to that is because Forza 4 is the Essentials Edition. Only 320 cars, instead of the 1000 cars in the full version. Also, Skyrim is a download instead of a hard copy. I prefer hard copies because I can sell the game once I am done with it. But that's kind of OK, since I poured over 200+ hours into it! So what I'm basically saying is, you should buy this if you want an Xbox 360 250GB Slim. I got this for $250 back in November on sale, but even for $300 it's a good deal .Take my word for it.
A big mistake
I just bought this bundle two days ago. I traded in my ps3 for it. It was a mistake. It is hard to set up. When you play games the fan is louder than the games. You cant play online unless you have the gold membership. I recommend that you buy a ps3 or keep the one you have.
Me and my fiance bought this as a Christmas gift for ourselves, we both love Racing, RPG's, and Shooters. I guess 2 out of 3 isn't bad considering the price. Xbox has really stepped it up, and for everyone who is considering a PS3, just to let you know, we did the homework, and not only was the xbox more bang for the buck, it too, now has an internet browser that works even better than our friends ps3 slim's browser does. Thank you GameStop and Microsoft.
Wow! I had no Idea
I recently came over from PS3, after the networking system stopped working, to make a long story short, SONY did nothing about it, I used to always say, "Why pay to play online?" Well it makes total sense now! I love my New Xbox, I am totally new to Xbox, and I must say after being a Sony fan for the past 10 years, I see what I have been missing, the bundle is a awesome deal, Forza is totally awesome, graphics are unbelievable and Skyrim is just breathtaking! I gotta say for the money it was well worth it, I am beyond happy that I did this, because Sony made me very angry with tech support, oh wait what tech support? haha what a joke. Thank you Gamestop for all the great deals. =) Satisfied Customer!!!!
This was a great deal because usually this xbox is $299 and this bundle is $250 and it includes two great games. I don't know if its just me but the graphics aren't as good on skyrim as they were on my older 360 is it because this is a download where before i was using the disk? if someone answered this i would appreciate it otherwise it is a great buy.
I HAD THE ORIGINAL XBOX BUNDLE FROM 2005 AND IT STILL WORKS BUT I GREW TIRED OF THE LOUD MOTOR AND 2X RINGS OF DEATH IN THE LAST 7 YEARS BUT IT STILL WORKS. BUT THE SLIM TURNS RIGHT ON AND IT DOESNT FREEZE FOR 10MINS AFTER SHUTTING DOWN THE SYSTEM. I LIKE THE BLACK LOOK BECAUSE IT MATCHES MY TV. ITS FANS ARE SO QUIET THE OLD XBOX USES MORE ELECTRICITY THIS MACHINE RUNS A LOT LESS POWER WICH IS GOOD FOR YOUR ELECTRIC BILL LOL
