Major Nelson is full of new announcements today and has revealed two Xbox 360 250GB Slim Holiday Bundles.
The first bundle at a suggested retail price of MRP $399 comes with a Kinect, Kinect Adventures, Carnival Games: Monkey See Monkey Do, and 3 months of Xbox LIVE Gold. My roommate tells me that Kinect Adventures sells for $3 at GameStop (it could have been lower…) and Carnival Games isn't, well, the best game to show off the Kinect. I know this is meant to target children, but I've seen children love Dance Central and Kinectimals much more than those two games. Sure, kids are forgiving, but I would rather bring them up right.
The second—and much better—bundle at $299 comes packaged with Fable III and Halo: Reach, also with 3 months of Xbox LIVE Gold. Say what you will about Fable III, but whatever the case, it's better than the the other two games in the other bundle. And Halo: Reach?
Well, we know which one is going to win.
