I thought that new bundle is only for Canada?

It'll be worldwide it seems.

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.

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.
