This years holiday bundle will be the 250Gb slim with Forza 3 and Alan Wake for $299. The downer is Alan Wake will be a downloadable token, so no getting a 2-disc box for cheap later on.

Glad to see they are including Alan Wake in this bundle. It's a very underrated game one of the most overlooked titles of the year.

I'd imagine that now that it's November, the release is imminent. A week or two tops. Of course, the real deal will be on Black Friday when this same bundle will get some more added to it from various retailers.

I don't do Black Friday. I'm handicapped on a wheelchair and I've had a bad experience on Black Fridays. People go crazy.

Wish they would have a 250GB bundle with the matte finish console instead of the glossy black one.

Last year, Amazon pretty much matched or beat the bundles that Walmart, GS, Best Buy or Target had for their holiday bundles, so keep an eye out for them when the BF deals start to get revealed.

I guess that would be a good option. Cool thing is amazon doesn't charge taxes here. :D

Seems like a decent bundle. I would upgrade my fat Xbox 360 to this, but I already have Alan Wake from Kmart and Forza 3 doesn't interest me since it was offered before.

I'd definitely wait a bit longer...Black friday may have some good system deals (although last year I remember it more having full price systems with extra games/accessories packed in which sold out rather quickly) but there will likely be some gift card promos (last year walmart was giving $100 gift cards with the purchase of a 360 arcade), before and after thanksgiving, which might result in a better outcome (either extra games from the availability of the holiday bundle plus a gift card to buy a game you definitely want vs. some game you got packed in that you really don't care about.)

I wish the 360 bundles came with the new controller with the improved d-pad :(

My 360 just RROD out of warranty and I want to replace it... but at this point I might just wait for the next gen.

The Alan wake is good, but Forza 3 is CRAP they have a new version coming out with all DLC Forza 3 Ultimate Collection, if they would have included that then this would be a good deal.

Alan Wake is AMAZING. Unfortunately, this is the DOWNLOADABLE version, so it does NOT include the first DLC for free like the retail version. Boo on Microsoft for not including the DLC.

These are the games that I am currently playing:

:ps3: Batman: Arkham City

:wiiu: Mario Kart 8
:3ds: Adventure Time: Hey Ice King Why'd You Steal Our Garbage

Here is a direct link to my trade list.

Last years holiday deal of CoD MW2 LE Xbox, Assassins Creed 2, and Dragon Age Origins was the best IMO.


I'd love to see something like that, minus people fucking it for everyone else by ordering 10 of each game.

Quick question: if a buy a holiday bundle now (xbox, wii or ps3), and on black friday they decided to add something on top of the bundle (gift card, extra game etc), can I request them to "price adjust" and give me the extra stuff?

I think some stores exclude black friday adjustments.

Then sell the extras. Alan Wake is $40 retail for the disk and Forza 3 standard is $30 retail so you could probably make like $50 or so selling those on CAG, etc.

Good luck finding that before Christmas. Turn 10 last week finally said that the UC is a soft release, meaning it won't be sent to stores until each individual store sells out of standard Forza 3 copies. Only a select few in Europe/Australia have been able to get it so far. People are PISSED on the Turn 10 forums and demanding they make the exclusive DLC (90 minute Top Gear vid, a Top Gear-themed car pack, and a premium theme) available seperately like they did with the VIP Pack that was originally just for those that bought the Gamestop exclusive CE.

Yep, starts shipping No. 5th. What kind of deals were on the holiday bundle last year? I know the arcade had a $100 GC at Walmart and $100 off on Amazon, but what about the holiday bundle? Need a new system but dunno if I should wait or not on this one.

These holiday bundles don't usually run out for a while, although it sometimes takes a while for them to work their way through retail (some stores might be slow to put them out if they have lots 360s with no games bundled with them)....although with all the different 360 SKUs MS is putting out this season (plain arcade, holiday bundle, arcade bundle with kinect, elite bundle with kinect plus the pre-holiday bundle elite 360s already out there), it may not be as cut and dried for on supply this year....There will be plenty of 360s out there, but its a question of what kind, depending on the interest and demand for kinect (ie, does it pull in new 360 owners or does it only appeal to existing 360 owners, which means there will be tons of kinect bundles not moving this holiday season.)

I don't care for Kinect bundles because I can't use it. As I said before in the topic, I'm handicapped and wheelchair bound, Kinect is a no wheelchair zone.:bomb:
I am still pondering if to go play it save and buy it sooner than later.
