OMG, I got this for a christmas present from my parents and it is awesome! I got it two weeks early though, so I had a head start with my friends who already had Xbox Live! I love how it comes with a headset, and that you can chat through different games!
Rated 10 out of 10 by shooterfan 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.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shooterfan Best Console Bundle Out There!
This is the great console! 250GB Hard Drive, what more can you ask? Even by itself, this would be a really good deal. Now you have two awesome games added to it! Forza Motorsport 4 is the best racing game out there right now, except for Forza Horizon but they are in the same series anyway. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is probably the biggest and most rewarding game out right now. The game is never-ending with so much things to do! Great graphics, etc. It may get frustrating at times, but the reward is so worth it. You just might get a powerful sword or loads of money just for completing that hard quest! Other than the games, this is a very good console. The other Xbox 360 consoles were basically failures and were extremely loud. This runs whisper-quiet, so those big downloads you set overnight aren't bugging you when you try to sleep. The controller is way better than the Playstation 3 controller. It isn't too small, nor too big. Just perfect! So if you are looking for a gaming console to purchase, look no further! I hope you recognize that my review is soley from my own opinion, but I'm telling you, this is the best console bundle you can ever get.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Viselin Great Deal--One Warning
First of all let me say that this is an amazing deal. For the same price as the system without games you can have two games. Skyrim is the great game you have all heard it was. Those without a high speed internet connection may be a little peeved that it is only a download. The warning is concerning the other game--Forza 4. The copy that comes with this bundle is dubbed the "Essentials Edition." What this means is that the game is the same as the copy you can buy new except with 214 less cars than with the full game. You still have 320 cars and from the best I can tell the rest of the game is intact. This probably should not be a dealbreaker for most of you however as even without Forza, the Xbox 360 with the Skyrim download is still a great deal in itself. I wholeheartedly recommend this bundle.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SaintOfKillers Awesome!!!!
Well, I did own the 4gb Xbox s but because the postman wouldn't stop bringin bills to my crib I was forced to sell it for extra money. You can't play games anyway if the electric isn't turned on and I still needed to brew my folgers in the mornin, ya catch my drift? ;) Well, anyways, I was pretty tore up about it and turns out one of my homies felt my pain so the next time he came over he had a early x-mas gift for me. Can you guess what it was? no it wasnt a puppy, it was that lil bad to the bone bundle chillin right up there at the top of the page. Now i dont cry often (except when I watch disney movies) but this brought a tear to my eye. When I unwrapped it it was like he just gave me the ark of the covenent and I went blind from lookin at it. I swear I saw angels and heard monks singing. But, Its a really good system, fast, lots of memory, stays cool, is a great value and, looks sexy. You get 1 month of xbox live and a trial for hulu plus and epic fail epix. The games are pretty cool though. Skyrim is the obvious best of the 2 but, Forza is an alright racing game. So, yeah, get it, you wont be chuckin this console out the window a few months down the road.... Oh, and it comes with a headset. Happy Holidays yal and peace in the east.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BuddhaWolf Amazing! It's a Must Buy
I use to have a 60GB white Xbox 360 back in the day for a few years and I loved it like no other! Unfortunately, I wanted to try something different and traded it and all my games for a 160GB PS3 Slim. Biggest mistake ever. I found myself after about 6 months trading my PS3 in and a couple of games for a brand new 250GB black Xbox 360 slim model. Best decision ever. I'm very impressed with everything about it. It runs like a beast and it looks sexy, what more could you want? It is also probably 1,000,000 times better than the old school Xbox 360. There really isn't any comparison. If you are looking to upgrade your current Xbox 360, convert to a Xbox 360, or even wanting a current gen console, this is the best deal out there!
Rated 10 out of 10 by TinaF Great console for a great price
I upgraded to this 250 gb holiday bundle console from my 4gb xbox 360 slim. the 4gb wasnt enough memory for me now that I have the 250 gb Im very impressed. for 1. its quieter then the 4gb. 2. Its faster 3. It doesnt get as hot as quickly as the 4b 4. the looks of it is awesome. 5. Its cheap and its the same price as the 4gb holiday bundle. the only thing i didnt like was that skyrim doesnt come on a disc it comes with a code where you download it to the console and it takes forever cause it uses 3.68 gb of memory and I havent finished downloading it yet cause Im not home alot to download. but other then that its awesome and the graphics are amazing. BUY IT. add me if you have a xbox my gamertag is TinaF13
Rated 10 out of 10 by Javilos6692 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!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by kly411 Highly impressed
I have what I guess you would call a first generation XBOX 360 Slim that I have thoroughly enjoyed, but this unit seems to bring (at least slight) performance gains, especially in network/online. I also LOVE the matte finish. I don't know if that is the new standard for the XBOX units, but this looks so much better than the shiny (gaudy, IMO) finish of my other unit. I now have 3 XBOX in the house and it makes for a great content network. I've started using SmartGlass with Windows 8 as well and am just impressed with the "Metro" direction Microsoft is taking. That is a hard compliment for me to give because I am still a Mac, through-and-through. I'm actually considering letting go of my PS3 as well.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Xbox360ps3fan Great system!
The xbox 360 slim holiday bundle is a fantastic deal. What your getting is a system that plays all multi platform title at great frame rates and great hd resolution that surpasses ps3 as far as multi plats are concerned. Lets talk about hardware. Out of all 3 consoles xbox 360 most closely resembles a PC. The CPU is a IBM based triple core processor running at 3.2 ghz. The mother board is a Foxconn and the gpu is an ati based gpu with 512 Megs of shared memory. The xbox 360 also does a pretty decent job of antialiasing. I also want to say I'm a fan boy of af all consoles but if your wanting the best overall performing console then xbox 360 is the way to go. I personally recommend getting both a 360 and a ps3. The 360 for multiplatform titles and the ps3 for its amazing exclusives. My gripes are that the included forza game is basically a watered down version of forza 4. But skyrim is a full game and its amazing! Buyer be warned it will take over your life. You can put 100 hours into skyrim and barely have scratched the surface. Another gripe is paying for the online and that's where ps3 has an edge. And also get ready for a bombardment of advertisements on xbox live that will have you constantly asking yourself why do I pay for xbox live while psn is free with limited advertising. Well enjoy your 360 it's an amazing system with great gaming and multimedia capabilities.
