Stolen from Slickdeals. Good deal. Just change the zip code to the onel isted and once you check out, change the pickup location to one near you. IF it sells out in that zip code, just change it to one in stock. Didnt see a thread for it.

Ripped from SLICKDEALS: WORD FOR WORD.

Xbox 360 Skylanders holiday bundle @ Walmart.com for 149 + Tax and free store pickupHello all,

I own a PS3 and could not decide whether to buy an xbox 360 but looking at its amazing Kinect play line I was really impressed so I started searching for a good deal.
Here is what I finally ordered.

And here is how you will score one near your Walmart.

To begin with, you will have to place any damn order and select as store pickup. In this order you select the store which is your preffered pickup store and then place order.

Note: Don't forget to cancel this order after placing your xbox order.

Now comes the xbox 360 order. Follow below instructions.

1. Click here:
http://www.walmart.c...36.../21834948?

2. Enter zip code 48706 for store pickup. (Select any one near you which show it as available for pickup today. I gave an example of Bay City, MI store which has multiple of these in stock.)
3. Click add to cart
4. Proceed to checkout.and at first tab which says shipping and pickup, it will show you the store where you picked something earlier along with its address and a link "Use this store instead".
5. Click and select that store near your house.
6. Place your order
7. Your order will be shipped by walmart to that store and will be ready for pickup in a weeks time.

Enjoy the XBOX 360 and flip anything that you don't want. Also pass on the Kinect deal for me please

So basically if you were too lazy to go to walmart on Friday/Saturday, you can now order it online for the same price.

I think it's saying to like flip the skylanders and Kinect to get the xbox for free? Harumph.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

Just to be clear, this doesn't come with a Kinect. I checked. Would consider it if it actually did.

To be fair to OP, sounds like a good deal and you could flip the Skylanders to get the console for 100ish.

I'm not suggesting you skip getting a HDD, but the 360 does let you use flash drives as memory.

However, there is a 320gb HDD for the 360 for sale on Amazon for $65.99

Depends on the game and whether or not it supports certain features saving to flash or USB drives. I picked up a 4GB a while back and one of my games didn't support replays without a hard drive. So, I put in a second hand drive. I expected the replay files to be huge, but they were tiny and would've easy fit tons of them on the 4GB flash memory or on a thumb drive, but the game just didn't support it.

I went into Walmart and there was almost a full pallet of these and as of two days ago, they were still selling them for $150. Right across the isle from the almost full pallet of white Wii's going for $90.

Probably, just might be the chance you can't put original Xbox titles on it, thats the only thing that comes to mind.

Hello! I bought one of these. Sold the green Skylanders figure for 30 bucks on Ebay. Next up is to put an old 60 GB hard drive from a Gamestop sale inside it. Great deal for those that want a 360!

MS limits backwards compatibility of original XBox games to having an official MS HDD that has the files on it to authorize them to work on a 360. Many used/refurbished drives sold by NewEgg, EBay, Microcenter, Fry's, etc. will not have the files needed.

Used ones at GS are fine b/c they're ones traded in that have been wiped by the original store that took it in and the GS factory in Texas.

So will i have any problem with game saving or anything else beside playing old xbox game?

I'm wondering if i should get this or wait for the 199 holiday bundle sale again.

thanks
