May be interesting for some looking to pick up an Xbox 360 sometime soon. Comes with two great games as well
Wow, that bundle is EPIC... ;D
indeed its EPIC games :D
jesus, i could have sworn i was called a sony fanboy some hours ago, do you guys even read ? or do you insult others as a fanboy the secondy ou read a potisitve / negative comment ?? reported.... haha disagree al you want :D the deal is great whops sorry did i just say something positive about the 360 ? time to hit the ignore on me guys and gals !
@ Ghoul Or he could have been referring to Masta_Killa poster...
coudl be but i gor only disagrees :)
Is this the 20GB 360?
yes guess so, its the shell out action price
Yes this is the 20GB version comes with one controller and the usual, hope I was able to help!
Great deal. More bang for your buck.
Trying to counter the new 399.99 80gig PS3 with Motorstorm? Aint going to work :)
Silly little muslim
Id get it if it had another price drop by that I mean the xbox. I don't want to waste money right now cause of the ps3 fall season. fall seems important for the ps3 there is a mayjor release each month of fall games like LBP, Home, SOCOM, motorstorm, and REsistance 2.
im waiting till christmas to get my 360...i got my ps3 at chritmas and every new console i ever bought was at chritsmas..i dont know y but thats just how it has always been for me -_-
Well your gonna get one heck of a deal then;p. And if for some reason you don't like those games you've got half the Wii's price in credit, so win win!
thats not really a bad bundle
UT3 being essentialy a muliplayer game and Geow solo being quite short but with great multiplayer I dont wee why have UT3 plus Geow unless youre really some FPS crazy guy. Moreover the design is quite similar sometimes. Anyway since they are bundled , thers nothing to complain about. Great offer.
Have you never played Gears of War? Solo what? Last I checked the game has a brilliant multiplayer system built into it. Fantastic co-op and some intence multiplayer to boot. Folk who agreed with you must have been fanboys. I will give you the benefit of the doubt and just say you must have been misinformed. =)
GoW isn't a FPS, It's 3rd person over the shoulder. And as already stated their both incredible and dynamic games, it's like Christmas came early for anyone who's buying it:)))
didnt ut3 just come out?
I'll take that bundle. Microsoft just knows how to earn my money. Sony will neva eva see a dime from this rich man. 360 FTW. PS3.................MAJOR FAIL. Just like Carlitos and fat Jukken and gang,when they troll our threads.
THE UNREAL DEAL
No , i didnt express myself prperly what I meant was they are both shooters and Geow multiplayer is enough for the avergae gamer. Unless you really really like shooters then you'll be happy to get UT3 plus Geow. I mean I would probably play one of them and hardly touch the other (more Goew that UT3)
What an excellent deal, anybody REMOTELY interested in a 360 should get this bundle. Unless you're waiting for the new 60gb pro.
See thats the thing. Things stopping me buying a 360: - No HD media player. I have a ps3 in my room, and buy mostly bluray movies now. So i still wouldnt be able to watch the movies in my living room (where the 360 is going) - No wireless adaptor built in/free. Im not goint to be able to get online unless i but a 25 meter ethernet cable and even then its gonna look crap. Or a could pay telstra $150 to come in and put another phone line terminal in. Or i can buy the wireless adaptor for $100. Yay. - Reliability Problems. My first 360 had a dodgy dvd drive tray that wouldnt open without serious prodding. They wouldnt fix it. It then chewed my gears cd, then it RRod'd. You can say it was a pretty average experience. Sure these problems might have been fixed now, but MS hasnt done anything to convince me of this. Giving a longer warranty doesnt make me feel that they are confident with their hardware. If the problems were fixed we wouldnt need a 3 year warranty. And if something apart from rrod strikes it down i have to become a criminal to actually get it fixed. No thanks. - Paying for online play. I know its not much but i mean im already gonna have to spend a hundred dollars just to get it hooked up to the internet. - DVD9. Its starting to show its age. - No standard HDD. You can only listen to so many devs whinging about it before you start to realise that its a problem. So yeah.... Feels like a last gen console to me.
ok so why the disagrees? Are you telling me i can buy it for 300 and get two games, then go home, plug it into my tv, play online and watch HD movies without downloading them? Cos if I can id love to hear how.
i'm not sure; i read the product info and it says you have to add a storage device (HDD). is this true? if it doesn't come with a hard drive then i don't think it's that great a deal. gears1 is old news and UT3 is pretty much an online only game.
Include the 60 Gig and I will get my first 360. These are 2 games I never played and I want the 60 Gig. In fact I will call them and see if I can send them the extra $50 to get the 60 gig bundle.
You can pickup gears for about $40 and UT3 for $60.
when it hits the bargain bin in a couple of years, 'maybe'
I thought this was an Xbox 360 story. I suppose you can buy this now or wait for the stripped down 80 SKU for $100 more and less games to choose. Atleast the online is free. Too bad it's still a couple years behind Live still. -Death
100$ more? My english is not that great, but did you just said the new 80GB version will cost 100$ more than the actual one? Didn't it will cost the same as the 40GB, 399 USD and be the only SKU around? The thing you are smoking is heavy stuff bro, time quit it. Or maybe I'm the one on weed and you are just comparing PS3 and 360's price and I misunderstood everything? Jeez...
The new SKU will be the same exact SKU as the current 40 gig, but with the 80 gig HDD and of course no backward compatability. It will still cost $399 which is still $100 more than the $299 Xbox 360 bundle that this story is about. Hope that makes more sense for you. -Death
They could add 10 more games to the bundle and i still wouldnt buy an xbox
So buddy what are you doing in this story? It doesnt concern you and neither does your comments concern us. Go back to your console news and watch trailers and wait in anticipation of some kind of price drop or games worth buying it for.
I would say the same for the the ps3, but wait do they even have 10 games worth playing to put in a bundle. Please don't even mention any games not even out yet because we all know about the lists you sony fan boys keep mentioning WAIT B3yond
Xbox 360 with Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3!!!!..... I'll pass.
According to the disagree gremlins, no. You shall not pass.
Son, having enough money to consider buying (another) 360 does not make me a troll. Neither does having concerns about the reliability and features of the things I buy, seeing as i like, EARN my money. Go back to school you small insignificant man.
so you are old enough to work then? well done! just reading some of your comments make me think that you are in the same age bracket as most of the sony fanboys on here....perhaps the paper round pays better nowadays than it did when i had one almost 20 years ago!
them 2 trolls act as if anyone care, and they will post the same trolling bs again on another article. you don't like anything Ms, we get you, now trollalong....looking at your post your not that hard to figure out. Great bundle or people who care about gaming and is interested in the 360.
"Great bundle or people who care about gaming and is interested in the 360" Unless of course they have already finished gears about 4 times and have UT3 with <cough> full mod support <cough>. Oh and UT3 sucks, even with that mod support. "them 2 trolls act as if anyone care, and they will post the same trolling bs again on another article." Do you think that I care if anyone on N4G cares about what I think? Last time i checked these were forums. And last time i checked forums were places you went to discuss topics you are interested in. I am interested in buying a 360 so i will discuss the 360. Im sorry that your little boy brain cannot comprehend that. Block list + 1 @plenty Hows your mums basement working out for ya?
This bundle is not aimed at hardcore gamers like yourself that have already played both games. It is aimed at casual users or maybe hardcore gamers that have yet to pick up a 360, but are waiting for a less expensive option. For $299 you already have the $50 price cut. On top of that, you get Gears which is an awesome exclusive game to the 360 and you also get Unreal Tournament 3 which is a blast online and once again a great game if you haven't played it yet. I honestly don't understand how anyone has an issue with this deal. Both consoles have their pros and cons. If this bundle attracts more customers that will enjoy what the console has to offer, what's the problem? -Death
But... 360 and Gears + Gears 2 Micro, make it happen. :)
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Great bundle! If you want an unreliable console and two games that are about the same damn thing. I'd rather have a PS3 with UT3 and MOD/KB+M support. But hey maybe thats cuz I'm a gamer.
But what's up with this deal advertised by Google above the "Read full story" link. A 360 for $35.00?!! Too good to be true.... http://www.refurbishedxbox3...
"Great bundle! If you want an unreliable console and two games that are about the same damn thing. I'd rather have a PS3 with UT3 and MOD/KB+M support. But hey maybe thats cuz I'm a gamer." There seems to be a contradiction in your post - it says you would rather have a PS3 because your a gamer - does not make sense.
Lol. Thats actually kinda funny. P.S. We didnt lose ff13. We're simply sharing it :P
Thats proved the xbox360 is no value.
Considering M$ are trying to sell more 360s to casuals its quite hilarious how they bundle it with 2 meathead shooters! M$ are a bunch of morons,a game like LBP is what they need to bundle with it to draw in the wiitards which is why the inevitable PS3/LBP bundle will wipe the floor with this bundle in sales. All "hardcores" have a 360 already, what is the point of this bundle?
WOW What a big surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Xbox360 news and over half the comments are Sony fan boys. Do you guys seriously have e-mail alert on your computer so when xbox news comes on you know. I can just see it now....... Sonyfan boy just dropping what ever their doing and running over to their computer just so they can get the first negative comment on the article. Extremely sad
its the same with ps3 news but with xbox fanboys instead so dont whine
This is a good deal. Futureshop are a pretty good store to get electronics because everything gets rotated and put on sale.
It`s a good deal surely if there was no other consoles to choose from, but there is PS3, and the only downsides in compare to Xbox that I keep hearing from Xbox owners is inferior games line-up and online capabilities, and bigger(appr.2X) install base, if that matters for you. But that`s changing, and it`s changing pretty fast, there are bestselling, arguably best in there categories PS3 titles out(GT5,MGS4) which are enough on their own to buy PS3, and PSN is shaping up, Home is on the way. So as far as I can see, total domination of X-box in those areas is no more, it`s close to a tie, with PS3 arguably having a better outlook. And then there is hardware, I think even hardcore X-box fans have to agree that PS3 wins here hands down, no question about it, more reliable(like a lot more), much more value for money, Blu-ray, wi-fi, soon 80 gig standard, etc. I own neither btw, but for me choice is as clear as day, partially cos I own up-date PC, and can play almost every exclusive X-box game on PC, and with mouse which I find much more handy for fps`s, but that`s me.
exactly... That's what xbox fanboys can't understand. They say : "Ok the reliability and hardware is bad, but look... we have halo, bioshock, gears of wars, orange box" These are all shooters, and they can be played much better on a PC, with a mouse. And if I liked them on consoles (I don't), on PS3 I'd still have Orange box, bioshock, and soon socom, killzone 2, resistance 2 (then MAG and so on...) Give me a reason to buy a Xbox 360 when you've got PC +PS3 and I'll buy one (seriously)... But there are none. Shooters are arguably more numerous on 360 (until all the FPS to come on PS3, at least), but all the other genres are / will be on PS3... How does Microsoft expect to win this console war by buying ports and not making new games is beyond me. With 2 studios vx Sony's 35 studios, it's not hard to guess where the games will be... The only way Microsoft had a chance was by buying studios and / or making new games. Buying FF13 can't win the war since it's coming on PS3 too...
