Walmart offers Xbox One with Kinect, Forza 5 and extra game for $499

Even though Microsoft is now letting people purchase the Xbox One without the Kinect sensor for $399, there are consumers who may prefer to buy the game console with the voice and motion gesture peripheral. For those buyers, Walmart now has a deal that may be to their liking.

Walmart is currently selling the Xbox One Kinect SKU online, as part of their Father's Day sales promotions, for its normal price of $499 but is throwing in two freebies. One is a card with a digital download code for a free copy of the Xbox One launch title Forza Motorsport 5. The other, and even nicer, free item is a choice of an Xbox One game on disc from a list of 18 titles. 

The games on the list include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Titanfall, Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Sadly, Watch Dogs, the just-released and long-awaited open-world action game from Ubisoft, is not among the titles on Walmart's free list. However, buyers of this bundle could, in theory, trade in their disc-based game at GameStop or another retailer to get a discount on Watch Dogs if they wanted.

Since this special bundle is being tied into a Father's Day sale, it's likely that Walmart will discontinue this particular deal on or around June 15th.

I think Walmart's trying to clear out their inventory of SKUs with Kinect because people weren't buying them in the first place, and especially aren't going to now that the Kinectless version is coming out.
Not a bad deal, though. And a good selection of games to choose from.
