Microsoft has released a pair of Xbox 360 spring hardware bundles for Europe and Australia this week, both of which are 250GB consoles bundled with various games and a year of Xbox Live Gold membership.

There's the Xbox 360 250GB bundle with Darksiders II and a download voucher for Batman: Arkham City, or the Xbox 360 250GB Kinect bundle with three Kinect titles. They are Kinect Adventures, Wreckateer and Fable: The Journey.

Check out images of the spring Xbox 360 250GB console bundles below. Both bundles are available now.

#5 Well we all have no idea what name of next Xbox yet. Microsoft will reveal next month or so. Most of people use it 720 for call Xbox 720 for now or you can say next Xbox.

I sometime said next Xbox or Xbox 720. Simple as that. Many rumours informations about 720 for long time. I using 720 or next Xbox for call it moment. :)

@5 Nobody knows what the next Xbox is called, a lot of sites are referring to it as the "720" due to the fact it's a lot more recognizable than Loop/Infinity/Durango.

Moving on. Nothing against these just wish they'd have games I don't have in the bundles, you know it's Spring the new Bioshock is out soon, MGS just came out. They could put newer titles in them.

Remember how they f**ked up with the first gen xbox 360. With the low cap and RROD and sh*t...

Never buy the first draft. Wait till they tune it up a little bit and crank up the capacity.

I can wait. I'm a patient man and there's a lot of 360 games I haven't finished.

There's NO need to give the new system a number or name. It's an Xbox, we all know it, so why the extra? PS4, fine, since they're deep into the number system, but even then, there's no need. If when the new system comes out, and you go to the store to purchase one, and ask, "Yea, I'd like to get an Xbox, do you have any?", they'll just ask, "Or, the 360, or new console?" And in 1 year, it'll be "Okay, here you go." cause they won't produce, or sell the 360 anymore anyway.

I think we should get behind the PS4 being called the orbis, and the 720 being called the durango, those names are so much better than a bunch of numbers

Just to confirm - they have not at any point, ever, confirmed ANYTHING about the new console.

That includes what it will be called. The simple 'Xbox' name was a rumour, just like every other bit of 'information'.

Microsoft have not even ever officially confirmed the existence of another console, they certainly have never confirmed the name.

Call it whatever you want for now.

There are rumours of an announcement in April, but I suspect we'll know more by the end of E3 at the latest.

Why doesn't microsoft do a 320gb regular black console (as in not one of those Gears-styled, COD-styled systems)? I'm in need of a new XB soon & I just hate to have to buy a 4gb XB & then get a 320gb HDD for it. I just want it all-in-one Xbox(without shitty game designs all over it).

Anyone know why they don't have a plain black XB with the 320gb bundle?

And it's not because they're trying to make the system "affordable" because if people want something they'll buy it any price.

I can't see them putting an Xbox 3 out against a PlayStation 4. That'd just make Microsoft sound inferior to the casual market.

That kinect bundle is awful, the only kinect games worth getting are DC and kinect sports. Couldnt atleast put a 'better with kinect' game in.

Also, neXtbox is far more catchy

@7: Until Microsoft gives an official name, it's Xbox 3. Xbox because it's an Xbox and 3 because it's the third one.

720, Durango, and Nextbox can go fuck themselves.

that isn't necessarily a problem that has plagued first gen consoles from every console release. that was a 360 specific problem. my launch day wii and 3ds work fine, as do all of my xbox1's (which while not launch units, are still version 1.0 and 1.1 systems). my old psx (i don't remember the various revisions as well as i do the newer systems, but it has the expansion port, aka it is one of the first revisions) still works fine too.

i wouldn't let a single console's flawed v1 design stop me from getting a console on launch day when there are decades of systems that haven't had those failure problems.


or to paraphrase what you said, "fuck your unofficial title, use my unofficial title because i like it better"

I heard that the 3 major console makers were going to combine their efforts, instead of competing... and call their new machine: XStationU

LOL! Seriously... how did an announcement of a couple of new Xbox 360 bundles being released this Spring, turn into a war about what the next-gen Xbox will be called???

It really doesn't matter. We all are going to buy one (and a few of you will have mommy buy it for you)... and it really doesn't matter what it will be called. Even if it's, "Bill Gates' Xbox Butt-Scratcher" - you'll get it anyway! ;-)

I find it amusing just looking at the difference of bundled games depending on whether or not the Kinect is in the box or not. Microsoft is definitely fully aware of the contrast of audiences there.

Should be called "Hexbox" because the first two waves of the 360 were horrible (the first release and then the HDMI support).

@33 no because if that was the case, and let's say for ex. if the xbox 3 did equally well or just better than the ps4, then that would make sony feel shitty or salty that it got even or beat by the 3rd console by microsoft while it's sonys 4th.

Next Xbox is hardly. Seem so many Xbox fans over mention that PS4 is better system for next generation. I will get next xbox. For now PS4 is look best. I cannot wait next month for Microsoft reveal next Xbox. I knew it is rumours about April but if not happen then E3 2013 is likely for announce.

I like name either Xbox 720, X3OX, Xbox Infinity and Xbox. I like those name and it is better then any other names. :)
