nice deal.. wish theyd do it on the 250gb kinect bundle as well...

and hopefully amazon does something to match or beat walmart

According to an employee at gamestop, Microsoft recently sent word that they were no longer making the 250gb kinect bundle. So unless you know a store that has it, I wouldn't count on a deal with it.

I might bite on this.

My Pro from 2007 is acting up.. I'm out of warranty so maybe it's time for an upgrade.

My friend and I are just hoping our Jaspers last a long time because we tried using USB sticks instead of the 360 MUs (we need our profiles to be portable) and they would fail and be slower than normal (even though the speed test was fine). So Microsoft needs to fix the compatibility with USB sticks. One of the sticks was Kingston! Kingston is usually a more reliable brand. I also saw that I'm not the only one looking at some USB stick Amazon reviews.

Has there been any independent study of what USB drives really-really work with the 360?


Get a SanDisk Cruzer model. 8GB or 16GB for not more than $30. SanDisk is the same company that makes the "Official" Xbox branded USB drive and it's waaaaaaaaaay overpriced at $60+.

I've used the ordinary 8GB and 4GB Cruzer models with no problems and paid $15 and $10.

Looks like a new Xbox is in my future. My old Xbox is on its last spin. Then I can trade it in at Gamestop while it still plays.

$299 for the Xbox with $75 dollar card = $224 - Trade-IN w/Bonus at Gamestop w/ 120GB hard drive about $90 = $134* *Basically out of pocket cost.

I WILL be picking up a new one Xbox.

No, they let you keep it and give you another one as a gift.

Would really love to pick one of these up. The bundle in question seems to be in very short supply though. I wonder why they're offering such a deal on something most stores don't even have in stock. They obviously aren't having any trouble selling them.

There's a USB stick compatibility thread in the 360 forum.

The official "MS branded" USB sticks are made my Sandisk, which are what I generally use. Have never run into any issues with them (though I also use MUs to bring to a friend's house). If you have one lying around or find one cheap, I'd recommend a Sandisk drive.

Maybe they're getting another shipment next week?

I'm really hoping so, otherwise this deal is pointless.

That is right, it states that this bundle is available for a limited time on the Xbox website.

I bought the XBOX 360 4 GB from Amazon w/ $60 gc. Would this be possible? Buy the Walmart XBOX 360, keep the Hard Drive and $75 gift card and then sell the Walmart Xbox as a 4 gig (without hard drive) for something like $180?

I have someone willing to buy it from me for $180 but does the XBOX 360 with 250 turn into a regular 4gb without the hard drive or is it inoperable without the 250Gb Hard drive?

No it doesn't.

Only the 4Gb model has the extra 4gb flash memory built into the motherboard.

It will have a little bit of internal memory, but not much. Just enough to power and run the system. Why not keep the 250 GB system and sell your 4 GB? The 4GB USED is selling for around $230 currently on Amazon.
