Xbox Holiday Bundle...


Recommended Posts

Today Microsoft has announced a new Xbox Holiday bundle. Beginning on September 17, when you purchase a Xbox console at the regular MSRP of $179.99, you will also get a 2-month trial of Xbox Live (without the Xbox Live Headset), and the full versions of Tetris Worlds and Star Wars: Clone Wars.


On October 15th Microsoft will be changing the packaging, and the games and Xbox Live demo will be included in the box.

Doesn't the full version of tetris worlds come with XBOX Live 2.0 Starter Kit?


So what your getting here is an XBOX, a 2 month subscription to Live, Tetris Worlds, and Star Wars Clone Wars...for $179.99, but you will still need to buy the Xbox Live HeadSet, which is what 29.99 or something? and after those first two months are up $50.00 for a years service...which adds up to 259.97..


Wouldn't it be better to just buy a non-bundle and an xbox live starter kit 2.0 for 229.98(you get an xbox, headset, Tetris worlds full, mech assualt and moto gp demos, and a years subscription)...I'd rather spend the extra 30 on a live game I might actually play....



Most of the new live games come with a free 2 month subscription anyhows, this bundle doesn't seem like a good deal at all....did i mess something up?

That's OK, but it's not great. The current bundle we have up in Canada with Halo and Amped for $30 extra is better IMO, and so was Sega GT/JSRF (although the number of copies of that we had traded in would suggest that many people would disagree).


And I agree about the headset, they should really include it as well.


Those pictures on the box are awful, especially "Watch DVD Movies".
