Microsoft has announced three new bundles for the holiday season featuring its soon-to-be-replaced home console, the Xbox 360. Two bundles are priced at $299.99: a 250GB system packaged with Halo 4
and Tomb Raider
and a 4GB system with a Kinect sensor and Kinect Sports: Season Two
as well as Kinect Adventures
If you're looking for next-gen pricing
but prefer living in the past, a $399.99 bundle will also be made available, featuring a 250GB console, Kinect sensor, the two aforementioned Kinect games and the fantastic Forza Horizon
. Each bundle includes one month of Xbox Live Gold service.
Microsoft's Major Nelson notes
that from October 13 until January 14, "US retailers will be having a Holiday 2013 price promotion in which you'll get $50 off each bundle." Prices for the bundles vary worldwide.
The Xbox family adds its latest member on November 22, when the Xbox One launches for $499.99 in North America. On November 15, Sony opens the door to the next-generation with the PS4, priced at $399.99.
