Xbox 360 250GB Console Holiday Value Bundle
An Amazing system
With the 7th generation of gaming coming to an end I thought I should write a review on this system that made gaming better than ever before, it was the year 2006 and I got a xbox 360 the first 7th generating gaming system I ever had and oh boy was it great with Tony Hawk American Waste Land, Fight Night Round 3, rainbow six vegas what great memories. The xbox 360 was really amazing and dominated a lot at its time. With great games like left 4 dead, gears of war, dead rising, and many more this system was amazing I eventually made the switch to a Playstation 3 and graphic wise the xbox 360 always seemed to have better graphics for its games other than the playstation 3 exclusives. Til today the Xbox 360 is still a great buy with many great games. Love this system and farewell Xbox 360 you where a great console that many gamers and I have had many great memories with I hate to see it come to an end but I welcome the next generation of gaming and hope the best for it.
first I looked at a the prices for these two games then I looked at an Xbox with the same amount of memory and it was the same price as this. so I thought to myself well if I was going to get a 250gb xbox why wouldn't I go for this one that comes with 2 games that a pretty much free.
I got this system the Xbox 360 E(last generation console after slim) yesterday on Thanksgiving at Walmart for 100.00.It isn't a bundle but is the same console as the one sold here regularly selling for 179.00.It came with a month of Xbox live a wireless controller and all cables ect, even two Duacel batteries for the controller. it is wifi ready also.Only thing I don't like is mine is 4 GIG and no hard drive for it yet or flash drives.I can live with that not that big on an issue.It has a bigger fan and more air circulation areas.It is super quiet too.Gameplay is good and so are the graphic's.I have a Wii also but the Xbox 360 has more games I like to play and no motion controller stuff I hate that.I finally after a long wait have my Xbox 360 and couldn't be happier I can now watch DVD's too on it. It looks similar to the xbox one.
250 Gig bundle is the one to get!
I've been a 360 owner since a few months after the '06 launch and I finally caved and grabbed a PS3 about two years ago. MAN am I glad I picked them in that order! Essentially, the Xbox 360 is the PS2 of this last console generation.
A fair disclaimer: The PS3 has definitely turned around in the last 2/3 years, especially since it finally got decent exclusives and dropped down to a fair price. While both consoles have valid strengths now, I really do have to tip my hat to XBox for consistently offering a stronger and smoother gaming experience, and really setting the bar for the next gen consoles. Whenever a game comes out for both platforms that I want, I almost always get the 360 version. Between the XBox iive experience and the comfort of the controller, the experience really is that much better.
XBox Live alone makes the biggest difference for me - everything online just works. Period. Sony's PSN is free, but that comes with a slew of incredibly frustrating glitches that make simple game updates and execution of many apps a massive headache. (Netflix has worked for me on only 1 out of 20 attempts.)
The controller is simply amazing. It's comfortable and intuitive, weighted perfectly. The only downfalls are the disappointing "rocking" D-pad and the extra cost that comes with buying rechargable battery packs.
The Kinect sensor isn't for everyone, but it's pretty freakin' awesome. I rarely use motion-based games, but I do use it a lot for subtle things like voice commands. PS Move and the Wii motion systems are alright, but you have to spend a lot on accessories per player to get started, and I'm not impressed by the way software generally utilizes their motion features.
This 250 GB console is the one to buy if you're getting it new - the 4 GB base model will eventually need the hard drive upgrade for many games, so it's definitely worth getting that up front. Used Knect Sensors are running about $50 used, so even if you really want Kinect, all the bundles are making you pay $100 for it so just get the hard drive version.
Including Halo 4 and Tomb Raider was a really good move - they're two really solid games to start your library with - just be aware that while Halo is a physical disc-based game, Tomb Raider is a voucher for a digital copy so you will need to get online to access your copy.
Great Value! Great System! Loads of fun!
This is a great buy if you are a halo or tomb raider fan! originally purchased a used version of this console from gamestop and took it back because it was heavily scratched, so i decided to buy this one and boy was that the greatest decision, first off this console was not much more in terms of price! and it was brand-new! i opened the box to find all the cords, controller, console plus two 1 month xbox live memberships! AND a free month to HULU Plus! do yourself a favor and buy this console if you are waiting on an xbox one like i am!
2 days ago my xbox broke and thats when i found this online. I went to my local gamestop and was really suprised because he told me call of duty ghosts was included. A++++
that is great
i think this ítem is great cause isnt expensive and have grat games
too i know in the future this console will had a new games.
in mexico is very expensive i think 500 dlls so that is grat.
game stop is the best
IT GREAT!!!!!!!! its so less noise :)
IT IS GREAT I RECOMMED IT TO PLAYERS TO UPGRADE AND NOOBS YOU WILL HAVE THE BEST PLACE TO GET YOUR BUTT KICK BY PROS BUT AT THE END YO WILL BE A PRO................................................................... WE.............ARE...........SPARTA
Not that great.
For a Black Friday special, this bundle really lacks. For one you get 2 semi old games and a system you have to pay to do just about anything on. In my opinion I would go with a PS3 bundle instead, you would be much happier in the end.
