View author's profile

Microsoft has today announced the white Xbox 360 Slim Special Edition Kinect Family Bundle, harking back to the original colour of the Xbox 360 when it first launched way back in 2005, lest we forget.

The limited edition bundle packs a glossy white Xbox 360 Slim 4GB console, a glossy white Kinect sensor, a white Xbox 360 controller and two Kinect games to go with it all. That'll be Kinect Adventures and the first Kinect Sports. And finally, there's also a three month Xbox Live Gold membership in the box too.

Being shipped out to US retailers today, the Special Edition White Xbox 360 4GB Bundle is available in the US and around the world, with the console coming to Europe and Brazil in the next few months. It retails for an MSRP of USD $299.99 and you can also pick up the white controller on its own for USD $49.99. Cast your eyes upon the white Xbox 360 Slim below.

Microsoft, explain this to me. You want it to be a family bundle...and yet you make it a 4gb console, not hte 250gb. You're all fucking idiots.

@ #4, thanks for breaking the comments.

Anyways, looks cool. I don't really need it, as I have the regular 60GB Xbox. Although I do want to get the 250GB Slim.

I'm figuring they had far less preorders for the Star Wars bundle than they projected so they just scraped the blue off and called it a family bundle...

I really dont get this 4GB business....why not just do 250GB plus through out....BF3 took up 13GB with updates, HD enhancements and both the Disc'x installed so what the fuck is 4GB all about, more games companies are making games better if you run them from your hard drive, before anyone goes its the family one, well just have a couple of word for you "Kinect Fun Labs"

I recon they just ran out of the blue paint for the R2-D2 consoles so knocked these up with the spare White kinects... I do kind of like it though but 4 gb is disappointing!

I have two 250gb slims. the glossy one and the matte one. I wouldn't trade either for a white 4gb. I never liked the white color for a console. I always had case mods on my fat 360's all 15 of them (rrod)

Dear MS 4gb consoles are pointless, even to the casual audience. can't install 1 game, can't download DLC, Game saves aren't the only thing available anymore. I mean everyone complained about the 20gb when the 360 first came out.

As cool as this looks, I actually prefer matte.

Also, 4GB? Oh Microsoft. You so silly.

I still have the old 360, but if I got a new one I would choose more space over things I don't really want, even if I have moved on to liking White consoles.

your all failing to realise this is a FAMILY bundle console aka the 'casual' gamers version, aka what the wii is to nintendo

familys will buy this just for the kinect and have some 'family' fun and then im guessing they wont be fussed with installing the game hell they might not even know about if there used to a wii so thats why its only th 4GB version

Only problem with that white Kinect is it'll (probably) be sitting on top of a black TV. And that would clash real bad, unless your house is like an 80's throwback with triangles everywhere and neon and pastels clashing everywhere.

I'm really excited to see the white slim come to fruition. I've never been a main stream kind of guy and to have an optional white version of the console everyone has, is a pretty nice change. Besides, I've always been a fan of the white. The only flaw I always saw was that Microsoft never made a black and white console. My old white fat looks beautiful with the black accents I've added (and without voiding the warranty I might proudly add!). Can't wait for the stores to actually carry this so I can take one home!
