Amazon selling Xbox 360 250GB Kinect bundle for $239.99, today only

A few weeks ago, Microsoft announced its new holiday hardware and game bundles for the Xbox 360. It included a new 250GB bundle with the Kinect add-on that includes three free games; Kinect Sports 2, Kinect Adventures, and Forza Horizon, along with one month of Xbox Live Gold service, for $399.99.

As it turns out, Amazon is making that rather expensive bundle far more attractive, at least for one day. The retail website currently lists the 250GB Kinect Xbox 360 bundle for $239.99, a savings of $160. Remember, this deal is for today only and while supplies last. The $160 savings could be used to buy a few more games or perhaps a controller or two.

Amazon is also offering people who purchase any Xbox 360 console a way to get a 12 month Xbox Live Gold subscription for just $39.99, a $20 savings, if they purchase both the console and the membership at once. As we previously reported, Amazon also has a deal where you can buy a 12 month Xbox Live Gold subscription and get a free $20 Xbox Live gift card, which can be a physical card or an e-gift card.

Well that was a pretty expensive impulse buy!

The one in my office which was the first generation Xbox 360 days after its release, has been acting up with RROD lately was thinking of grabbing one soon but this was too good to pass up!

Hmmm, maybe buy this and throw it in the closet for 40 years.

why? In 10yrs it might be "antique" enough..... SNES systems got to their peak of retro demand around 2000-2006, about 10yrs after they came out

The problem there is there was so many SNES units sold, you can pick them up for almost nothing. Even brand new in the box sells for less than they did new once you adjust for inflation. I suspect the 360 will be the same.

Brand new in box SNES units from 1995 when it came out go for $600+, which is WAY over inflation... now if you just want a SNES from any year you might be able to get one around $299 which is at inflation in box

Why would you pay more for 1995? Most of the new in the box were selling for around $200 on Ebay.

I just think it would be pretty cool to open the box, take it out, and play the Mass Effect trilogy or Gears when I am 75. Maybe the grandkids would be interested too. By that point in time, I'm pretty sure the games would be out of the box -meaning no more televisions as we know them.

You might have to dig to find some adapter for the ancient HDMI interface with holographic upscaling.
