Xbox 360 Gets New Bundles with Holiday Price Cut

As you might have recently heard, the Xbox 360 is getting some new hardware bundles. However, those with a keen eye may have noticed that the box pictured also makes note of a free month of Hulu Plus and Epix Movies, both of which are services not available in Canada. As a result, we have to ask ourselves “how much of this applies to us?”

I took care to reach out to Xbox Canada for a statement, and provide a statement they did– or a press release, at least, which is just as good in this case. Here is what we are getting:

  • 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect and “Dance Central 2,” “Kinect Sports,” and “Kinect Adventures” and one month of Xbox LIVE Gold for $399.99 (ERP)
  • 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect and “Kinect Disneyland Adventures” and “Kinect Adventures” and one month of Xbox LIVE Gold for $299.99 (ERP)
  • 250GB Xbox 360 with two games: “Skyrim” and “Forza 4 Essentials Edition” and one month of Xbox LIVE Gold for $299.99 (ERP)

The holiday values continue with a $50-off pricing promotion on select Xbox 360 consoles and bundles available at select major national retailers. The $50-off price promotion will apply to:

  • 250GB Xbox 360
  • 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect
  • 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect

Additionally, the limited time $50-off price promotion will also be available with the Xbox 360 Limited Edition “Halo 4” console bundle, a must-have for “Halo” fans and the ultimate way to celebrate the return of the Master Chief in the next blockbuster installment of the iconic franchise. The limited edition console is available for pre-order and will arrive in stores with the launch of “Halo 4” on Nov. 6, 2012.

Going by the Xbox website (the U.S. one, though this was linked by an ad from the Canadian one), the prices listed above are all before the $50 holiday discount is applied.

According to Microsoft, all of these sets and deals should be in effect now, and can be found at Future Shop, Best Buy, EBGames, Walmart, Toys R Us, and Amazon.
