Microsoft has revealed a pair of new Xbox 360 250GB console bundles for this holiday season that are currently shipping to retailers, offering those yet to acquire a console the chance to get one for Christmas with some extra stuff in the box. Or you could buy one for that special someone in your life. Or not. Whatever.

The Kinect bundle in the white box below contains an Xbox 360 with a 250 GB HDD, Kinect, the games Kinect Adventures and Carnival Games: Monkey See Monkey Do, plus 3-months of Xbox Live Gold for a suggested retail price of MRP $399 USD.

The second bundle in the green box contains an Xbox 360 with a 250 GB HDD, Fable III and Halo: Reach, plus 3-months of Xbox Live Gold for a suggested retail price of MRP $299 USD.

So, there you have it. Another two console bundles to choose from for the holiday season. Jingle bells and all that.

Not bad. I want a Kinect but I think I can get a Kinect pretty cheap for Black Friday.

halo reach would beat halo 3 in sales if it wasn't a download in this bundle

I fear my precious Elite is nearing it's final few breaths, maybe considering one of these is a good idea.

I'll be upgrading to a 360S finally. The deals really aren't too interesting because I don't want Kinect and I've already played Fable III and Halo Reach, but why not get 2 "free" games and 3 months added onto my Gold subscription? I just wish Reach wasn't a download.

Still have my 'old' xbox360.
I won't buy a new console untill they step it up and go next-gen again.
It's bullshit that they don't plan on doing it; just look at some PC games, some could be just as good or better on a console, but the industy just won't allow it. :/

i'll just wait to get a limited edition console.

Selling Reach this late into the season KNOWING that Halo: CE anniversary will contain it's multiplayer wouldn't encourage the casual fan that much. Fable III is okay, I still haven't finished it and I've had it since release date to play with my girl.

At the kinect bundle, it's nice, but I'd rather them slap Motionsports and Carnival games to appeal to a matureish & kiddish audience, instead of two family friendly games. Oh well.

How about a 320gig hard drive bundle? Give me just the HDD and console, I've already played these games. Maybe give out a code or something where you can get your own Games on Demand game?

That second one is like the deal I got on my 360S. I got 360S 250Gig, Reach, Fable 3 and a year of live for £159.99 earlier in summer. Wasn't all in a box like that though.

Nice of them to make Halo Reach the download and Fable 3 the disc. That way you can sell that Fable 3 garbage and just keep the good game.

@ 10 The Arcade Xbox isn't shitty. It all depends on how you take care of it, and keep it dusted out. Mine is still going from Spring of 2009

The only thing I don't like about these are the downloadable games. I'd much rather have a hard copy of a game than just have it on my HDD

They should replace Carnival Games in the Kinect bundle with The Gunstringer.

Rather poor selection really. Would be better with some newer games because only 1 of those came out this year.

Sorry for the double post,but I just answered my own question.I was thinking of my old hard drive(with 4.5 gigs left) but realized that with this hard drive it doesn't matter.

@17, same here, got mine nearly 2 years ago and no problems yet. the odd game has crashed, but that's no fault of the console, the worst game for it is Fallout New Vegas, which everyone knows is buggy as hell.

still, if the worst DOES happen, may get the kinect bundle. got Halo and Fable III so that ones useless to me personally.

How about an 250 xbox for $200 or $250? I have both reach and fable 3 and if I want a Kinect I'll use Craigslist, they're on that site at least twice a week for about $50 here.

Gamestop in the UK have a better bundle than this anyway. £200 for Fifa 12 and Halo reach/Or Fable 3.
I don't particularly like Fifa games, but you can always trade it in for a decent price.

Already got my 250 slim awhile ago when they had the Forza 3 / Alan wake bundle for $249.

Not a bad deal I guess if you've held off on getting one.
