Great price for the 360 slim but I would avoid the kinect version its a waste of time. All those motion controlers are a waste of time IMO.
ChunkyLover53  +   551d ago
For $50 more you could get one with Kinect, I think it offers quite a bit to the Xbox 360 experience, even if you just like voice controlled or motion controlled menus. I use Kinect all the time for Hulu, ESPN, Netflix and just using the dash as a whole.

Just my two cents though.

I use mine for controlling the menus, as well as a few games. Fable is fantastic with it.

"For $50 more you could get one with Kinect..."

Or you could get like 5 games off of eBay or even from Amazon if you hold off a little instead of wasting the money on something like Kinect.

@ ChunkyLover53

Read the article... they are talking about the 4gb/Kinect bundle getting a $50 price cut.

LoL you chose to reply to chunkylover with your point but you ignore the troll making the first comment that actually fits your point vs chunkylover saying pay a bit more and get better value.

Anyways 360 could beat last years win with over all more annual sales by a million or much more this year with huge tittles, XBL update, price drop

$50 more for a better bundle compared to the normal sku at normal price at all other retailers

@greenpowerz

Who buys a 360 because of an XBL update?.... Nobody.

Also, that 'other retailer' EB Games was bought out by Gamestop. They are one in the same.. see their little catch phrase under EB Games; "power to the players"?

Kinect is far from a waste of time if you get it for the right price. Its aimed at family entertainment and it does it well. As for more serious games, I had far less trouble setting up Kinect to work for Forza than I did setting the PS3 eye up with GT5.

Kinect may just be the EyeToy on steroids but nothing wrong with that when it comes to family game time.

Still peeved over the fact they had the balls to release a slim that was only 4GB. What a useless amount of storage. 1GB is already taken up by the system settings and what not. 3GB isn't going to do much...
TheNocturnus  +   551d ago
Actually you only get 2.2 GB to use as 1.8 GB is used for system info. I know this because a friend of mine bought the 4 GB model.
xPhearR3dx  +   551d ago
You could always get a cheap USB stick for additional storage. I got a 16GB awhile back on sale for $20 and I have a 250GB HDD. Never hurts to add more space :)
Summons75  +   551d ago
at least were past the days where you get a 20 gig HDD and only have 12 gigs to save things on. At least back then XBL wasn't overflowing with DLC (pointless and needed stuff)
dazzrazz  +   551d ago
Basic, used 120GB drive is less than $40. I dont know why people still complain
kma2k  +   551d ago
i bought the 4gb model. I bought a used 360 oem hdd frm ebay for $10 a case for $10 & have a slim with a oem hdd on the cheap
ALLWRONG  +   551d ago
Should be $150-$250 with HDD by now... should be. This has got to be the most expensive console gen ever.

Already got a price drop at EB Games
Funky Town_TX  +   551d ago
still to much
4 gig w/o kinect should be $100
250 gig w/o kinect should be $200
EmperorDalek  +   551d ago
Regardless, the price drop makes it a very attractive buy if you dont have one.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   551d ago
This is fantastic, a price cut out of no where. should get people to invest even more into an Xbox this coming holiday season. An even more attractive price shouldn't hurt.

BTW is this permanent?

Its interesting that they had the most expensive console for like a year yet the 360 has been on top console on the NPD for months.
