New Xbox 360 Bundles Are Coming

This holiday season is an important one for the Xbox One, but Microsoft is not leaving the Xbox 360 behind just yet. Three new Xbox 360 bundles have been announced, and they'll go on sale this month.

All three of the bundles below ship out to retailers on September 16 for $249.

Xbox 360 500GB Holiday Value Bundle:
Includes the system, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and a month of Xbox Live Gold.

Xbox 360 Special Edition Blue Bundle:
Available at Walmart, this bundle has the special blue color (the controller is also blue) and includes the games in the Holiday Value Bundle.

Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle:
This bundle features Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, and Forza Horizon as well as a month of Gold access. It's available at Target.

Our Take:
It's annoying that some of the bundles are associated with specific retailers, but it's smart to keep nurturing the Xbox 360. Microsoft certainly hopes these owners will transfer over to the Xbox One in the future.
