New bundle deals and one of its strongest Q4 line-ups will make Xbox 360 the best selling console in Europe, Microsoft told MCV.
I thought that new bundle is only for Canada?
It'll be worldwide it seems.
I'll buy it.
Well they have Gears of War III in September, Forza Motorsport 4 in October and Halo Anniversary in November but I would think the fanbase those games already have XBox 360s, I don't see how those games will spur console sales really.
Who said Microsoft aims this bundle for the fans of those games? You bundle games with your product to make it more appealing to the newcomers/the people that were in a dilemma about getting a 360, not for the people who already own the console or fans of the games you're bundling.
@stanlee-you would be surprised-kids from a few years ago are older now and will look into gears 3. I used to say the same as you until someone told me this logic i just explained and also when Reach managed to still move consoles.
I might be the only one that understands your pov. The bundle isnt for them though. It's for the hold-outs and newbies. Laying out some top quality games to get when you buy it for the first time is better than saving $50 (imo). Now they should look into lowering kinect to $99.99 and see what happens.
"Now they should look into lowering kinect to $99.99 and see what happens." Yeah, thats something I think they should do as well.
They do this until they have to do an official price drop.
I am not impressed with the game selections
tbh i really dont think sequels will sell consoles as much as a new ip would
They should have also used the 320 gig HD instead of the 250 HD
reserved for the gears 3 bundle.
To sum things up: "We from Microsoft promote Microsoft products!" It's that simple.
Im still on the fence about this, I would like to try out some of the games on it and most are in this bundle pack. I know as soon as I pull the trigger and buy the stinking thing that the next gen will be announced to come out at the middle of next year though. Guess I will wait and see what the holiday sales bring out. Maybe amazon will make an even better deal on it to make it too hard to pass up.
Where's that lineup and hardware he's talking about? I haven't heard about it yet. If it's something new, I'm interested.
Halo Anniversary is the only 360 I`am interested in. Its just me but for awhile now I did not find much on 360 that i wanted to play. But when Halo Anniversary was announced i went nuts. Halo:CE is a great FPS one that I can say deserves a slot with some of the greatest FPS to grace us. But for games in general with the 360, sorry just nothing interest me. As for that new bundle if I did not have a 360 I would get it, those games are pretty good and make it a damn good deal.
The bundle is a good deal. If I had the money, I would buy it.
I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft does a slash and burn with 360 over the next year, lose some money in sales but make sure sales are huge to wrap up this generation. They have a lot riding on Windows 8, Mango and Xbox 720 integration.
The firm has dismissed the need to follow Nintendo and Sony by reducing Xbox 360’s price or developing new-look hardware. The platform holder says its line-up of games – including Gears of War 3, Forza 4 and Halo: Anniversary – will realise its dream of being No.1 across Europe ----------------------------- -------------------------- Hmmmm funny that cos thats the pattern you been doing. every time sony dropped the price you droped the price. every time sony has new console with updated HDD you do a larg HDD console. this happen over the past nearly 2 years now. why have they got to take no1. all i have been hearing is that they are no1 supposidly in console sales?
