Amazon is currently selling the XBOX 360 Elite and the HD DVD player for $600. This sku includes: XBOX 360 Elite XBOX 360 HD DVD player w/King Kong, 5 free hd dvd offer "300" on DVD
$600 that funny 2 hear because sometime ago microsoft said $600 was to much 4 a video game system (reply) Madmax1281980 so are you saying microsoft has nothing 2 do with this BS if its a microsoft they are behind it
Ye but microsoft arent selling this bundle but amazon is so think b4 u post retard
600$ for a defective console and a dead -format HD DVD NOTE:- HD DVD addon on x360 plays only movies SPIDERMAN 1,2,3 ...PIRATES 1,2,3 ,DISNEY and SPIELBERg's movies would never be on HD DVD BD has 80% hold of exclusive movies. please dont buy this defective x360 and useless HD DVD addon
i see you are tooting your BR and ps3 horn in typical fanboy fashion HD DVD dead? if that's true than BR is dead as well. of the 5% total HD movie sales it is split 60/40 in terms of software and we all know more stand alone players are being sold by HD DVD. it's even right now in my book. your exclusive hold on studios will soon no longer be there since getting that exclusive hold is already going through european courts for shady dealings. expect a lot of these proBR go neutral. it's business, if 1 format is only selling a little over 1/2 the HD movies, why settle for only one format when you can capitalize on both? cmon man, do you sony guys always have to preach RROD and dead HD DVD formats? 360 is a great system with tons of great games, HD DVD is far from dead as this format war is far from over. last i checked the ps3 was about games and up until now after all the delayed launches there still isn't 1 killer game on the market that just wows the masses. sure you got F1 for those F1 sim guys, but how many sim guys are there? RFOM is mediocre at best, although good, still mediocre. motorstorm is short, might be fun online but campaign players will surely be disappointed and there's dirt which i feel is better since i'm not 100% into arcade racers. lair looks whack, heavenly sword isn't out yet, neither is MGS4, KZ2, or GT5. these games are coming but there is more hype for them than anything. why drop $ on a waitstation now when you can get it later or enjoy gaming now on a 360? and all the multiplatform releases are better on the defective crapbox, why settle for a next gen port? besides, wheres your 4D graphics and next gen starts when we say it does? but to be on topic, this is as stated a bundled package NOT from ms. i wouldn't go for it simply because i'm format neutral and already enjoy majority of my gaming on my 360
LMAO didnt xbots saying how 600 dollars is expensive...haha the table turns...MIcrosoft screwing around with you guys with all these version of 360s...and to top it off the system die so easily..and the 360 isnt even the elite.its wanna be clone of ps3.....hahahah..this is just too funny!!
I honestly dont see hd-dvd or blueray winning I see this format war is gonna become a draw because there is already a huge stand alone player base for hd-dvd and they will continue to buy movies I eventually expect both formats to be sold along side each other.
Dude you also get 300 in this bundle. Thats a nice little bonus
they only give you 300 on dvd for the bundle (and not hddvd)
the movie is an hd-dvd
A 360 bundle that is comparable to the PS3... I hate to be the jerk who starts up a flamewar, but does that mean yes or no on the built-in Wi-fi?
$100 for wifi. Oh yeah, dont forget another $50 for LIVE.
The (official) Xbox 360 wireless adapter is $100, but you can buy a cheaper one to use instead.
You are retarded. This is a bundle that Amazon offers. There is no 360 that costs $600. And yes $600 is too much for a console. Do you think Sony dropped the price just bc they felt like being nice?? Sony did it bc the PS3 was selling like @ss and they had no other choice.
Cause before you couldnt afford a PS3, now you cant afford this bundle, so you're going to try to spin it around? XBOX 360 is a barebone console, and even with the HD DVD player, its still missing wifi, free online and more, but costs $100 more than the PLAYSTATION 3. P.S. What do you mean it was selling like @ss? 1. @SS sells REALLY well(playboy) 2. PS3 is murdering 360 sales even after the price drop(see vgcharts or amazon)
Even cost $400 considering it doesnt have those features like the PS3 it should be more like $300 alteast in a way Microsoft is ripping people off since it barely has any features so what are you talking about oh yeah $400 is a fair price not really! atleast Nintendo knew how to settle there price right unlike a system that cant even last for 1 sec maybe they should make it more like $140.
hahaha.. I'm sorry man but you are an idiot! The 360 does everything for me my PS3 does and guess what??? I've never had a problem with it.. 1 sec yea your not a freakin drama queen or anything.. You fail.
600$ is too much for a bloody cell phone, or a scarf, it's cheap for a powerful gameconsole. I win.
congrats welcome to the next level.
Really So you dint mind paying 600 dollars for a console when I bought my xbox 360 I felt the 400 dollars was kinda expensive and im not a cheap f ack I own a 2600 dollar tv. The thing that is definitely too expensive is the price of the games 60 dollars a pop I usually buy 2 or 3 a month im thinking of getting gamefly because majority of the games I have bought arent worth keep call of juarez, rainbow six , the darkness etc.
stupid amazon, are they doing this to make PS3 in $500 that get 5 Blu-ray except for the 300 look like a great value. No wonder PS3 sales rank is higher and XBOX 360 rank is dropping.
It's a nice incentive but I think the main goal here is to increase sales of HD-DVD, but I don't think it's really going to work. Not every buyer purchases from Amazon.
It is an $870 value. HD DVD is not dead - get over it Sony boys. Everything that happens is the supposed death of HD DVD, but it still stands. I wonder why? Also, I am tired of hearing "The PS3 has built in Wi-Fi". Who cares, I want to be hard wired anyway when I play online for the best possible connection. Oh yeah, here's a new one for you Sony fanboys - The 360 comes with 2 sets of HD cables. You get the component cables, a $40 value, and an extremely nice HDMI cable. Does your precious high-definition PS3 come with either cable/s? I know mine didn't. HD DVD is not dead. This will increase HD DVD player sales, no doubt. And just wait until there is an HD DVD player affordable to 20 million people - game over Expensive-Ray.
shoot HDdvd its over boy, let her go. I know you pay for a HDdvd but all the words in the world will not bring her back ... (taps starts playing ) BANG!!!!
If you were planning on buying them at the same time anyway, this sweetens the deal. This won't shatter sales records or anything, but it may be a hint of things to come this holiday season.
the 3D0. Soon to obsolete - too expensive for its own good. The truth is, it could cost $1,000 and Sony fanboys would still swing from its nut$.
Haha... You know what the funiest thing ever? Sony fanboys are running out of things to rant the xbox 360 for... Before it was, "XBox 360 does not have 1080p"... then "20GB hard drive is too small"... then "No HDMI"... what's left wifi!? So, if Microsoft released an xbox 360 with wifi... what else are you going to rant about? I have a wifi adapter... I don't even use it. I have a wifi router... that I only use for my PDA and as an emergency... I don't like using wifi.. direct Cat 5 is always better... less packets drops... faster download... "Oh yeah, dont forget another $50 for LIVE. " and SOny gives you LIVE for free? I don't want PSN on my xbox 360 I want LIVE... can you get me that? Most people here are dumb... they actually think that HD DVD = Blu-ray or that LIVE = PSN. There are completely different things that can't be compared... Here is an example, if I live Universal movies can I get it on Blu-ray... or if I want Disney can I get it on HD DVD? How about If I want to download COD4 demo when is released.. can I download it on PSN? Can I download stronghold on PSN? Can I do game invites, whats your gamerscore on PSN? Can you show me your achivements? This bundle simply can't be compare to anything that Sony can give you. If you are a sony fan you will think you get a better deal with the Playstation and if you are a XBox fan you will find better value in this... The regular joe? hehe.. he will see no value on any console that cost more than what they willing to pay... which is why DVD is still king and the wii is selling better... do they care about wifi? nope... do they care about HD player? they don't even have an HD TV nor are willing to pay thousands for a TV and $500-$600 for a console... Here is another set of benefits you can't get with the PS3. You can use this HD DVD addon drive on your PC and if you currenly own more than one xbox 360 you can use it on all of them. Have a laptop and want HD DVD on the go? you can do that with the HD DVD drive.
It seems you don't understand, most people criticized the 360 for it's lack of functionality and futures. Microsoft responded by creating more SKUs with the futures that were "lacking." Most 360 owners stated they didn't care about these futures, and I for one would agree with it. But, Microsoft feels that these futures are needed, the reason they included them in their later SKUs. For example the HDMI port that is missing from 10 million current Pro / Core units, is now included in the newer models of the same SKUs. It's Microsoft slapping it's consumer over and over again on the face, by creating SKUs with more functionalities that SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. I want ONE SKU WITH ALL THE FUNCTIONALITY, WHEN I BUY THE CONSOLE for the FIRST time. I don't want to buy a Elite for HDMI when I own a Pro model already. A lot of these functionalities should be been included in the systems in the first place. Oh, and it always pisses me off that anyone can argue for the fallowing reasons: 1. Paying for a service they should get for free. I don't know why you are happy ranting about a $50 dollar payment. But I would like a FREE service that is at par with the paid service that gives no real benifits at all. 2. Defending a limited storage service, like DVD9. Having more storage is always a good thing, defending a limit storage is well just "dumb." 3. Functionality, stating that less functionality is a good thing is obscured. There are people who say we don't need a Blu-Ray player on the Ps3, I would agree.. but having this functionality is a GOOD THING. Having more functionality is always good, arguing against it is just obscured.
Behavior Odd... I guess not cuz your blinded by the MS propaganda. Im not going to list all the things, but MS just seems to be adding features just ot compensate or match ps3's feature options. These features must be important because they are adding features that are very similar to sony's offering. Do you see sony copying ms that much I think not. Here is a suggestion think outside the box and compare the recent actions conducted by sony vs ms. Although ms is a first mover in this generation they are really showing signs as a follower at this point of the game
i agree with most of what you said except for the part about PSN being on par with LIVE. maybe you don't have LIVE, but man they are far from being the same thing. believe me, PSN is OK for what it is, but it is no LIVE for sure!! i have no problem paying to host private to public games with 2-24 people for $50. is there lag? sometimes yes, most of the time no. if PS3 had LIVE, i would be playing PS3 alot more to be sure. just can't get hooked up with all of my friends on PSN. at least not in the same manner of LIVE. it is a GREAT service regardless of what some think about the console!!!
The Ps3 is selling for $499 with a Blu-Ray player and 60gb.. while the 360 is selling at $600 with HD-DVD and 20gb HD, no wireless and no HDMI port.
