Looks like Microsoft will be announcing Xbox 360 console bundles with free pack-in games at Tokyo Game Show on Thursday. CAG members have discovered that GameStop has the new bundles listed with a ship date of October 8th. Lego Indiana Jones and Kung-Fu Panda are included with the $300 Pro and $400 Elite, while Sega Superstar Tennis ships with the $200 Arcade. Xbox 360 Fanboy reports that a Swedish retailer is also listing this bundle, so expect to see this offer everywhere.

As a side effect, expect to find insanely cheap used copies of all three games soon.

Great news if true. The prices for Panda and Indy will drop like a rock, and I wouldn't mind owning them both.

So does this mean that these Holiday bundles will have the Jasper chipset?

It's been confirmed internationally anyway that the pro/elite will come with Panda and Lego Indy, the arcade SKU comes with Live Arcade Games and Sega Superstars Tennis

Check out www.webhallen.com , that's the international store adding some credibility to the rumor.

The news is out there on other sites, this will be the official Microsoft bundle. Too bad the Arcade version doesn't come with Indy. At least this means Indy will be very cheap used in 6 months.

It can be assumed that all the bundles in the new box will be Jaspers. It will be nice to get official confirmation, but what I hear is anything that is over Lot# 0831 should be Jaspers.

The newest I see in my local stores is 0825.

08 = Year
25 = Week (25th week of the year)

Wow, Sega Superstars Tennis for free! What a deal!
(to be fair, I actually do want to play that game because of Beat and Gum)

I wouldn't play neither game, so I'm straight.....I'm happy I saved 50 on my 360!

Now, onto play Forza 2 from my last 360 (that game wasn't good enough to be stolen :()

It's over. Sony is finished.

Seriously, I hope Sony does something to counter act this. In Europe you got the 360 at half the price of the PS3, and now in the US It's far below half and just missing the hard drive you can grab on eBay for $30.

I read elsewhere this is going to be nation wide (the Kung Fu/Indiana Jones bundle anyways) not sure about Sega Superstar Tennis.

Good move by MS to get the casuals to buy a system. Halo 3 would have been killer but would make no sense to get teh casual buyers.

It's just that simple.

Who cares? Seriously, as long as they're all making great games, why does it even matter?

As it was stated earlier, prices on all three games will drop like a rock and I can't wait.

Cripes, because of the bundle last year, my store is swimming in 60+ used copied of Forza and Marvel. They trade in at less than a dollar and people still trade them in. wtf

People that want more bang for their buck. Are you forgetting what site your currently on? Not every one can shell out $400 for a system, and we realize the 360 doesn't have blu-ray but that means nothing to someone who just wants to play the latest and great games.

So yeah, I am looking forward to a bundled PS3. I won't buy one till It's lower but I know others will.

It's just that simple.

It will be fun in Spring when these new SKU's are discontinued and everyone starts rumors of hardware reconfigurations again - like last year, and the year before etc etc etc.

I was in a Gamestop in Boonton, NJ and they had these Holiday packs in stock behind the register...Great deals if you don't have a 360 or want another one...Both games are decent and it should help attract "younger" gamers to the system.

This will be nice to pick up a used Lego Indiana Jones and Kung Fu Panda for the kids at a cheap price in a few months.

I find it disappointing that MS is relying on two movie tie-ins for the pro and the elite bundles. From a marketing position, it makes sense. But it's unfortunate to get a free game that's not wanted. Banjo should really be there instead of Kung Fu Panda.
Currently Playing: Halo: Reach, Borderlands, and Burnout: Paradise.

Agreed, looking forward to a PS3 price cut in the coming months.

Don't worry sony will answer back with the following package at a family friendly price.

PS3 200gb HDD
Dulshock "not six-axis, but a dualshock controller"
"Free" copy of Little Big Planet Demo
Only $599.99, to get you throught these hard economic times.

No but seriously they are done for this generation. This was supposed to be sony's year, what the hell happened. And instead of decreasing prices on these systems they are coming out with more expensive models. No games to play with, I mean only thing they can brag about is MGS 4 and Killzone. Bunch of dolts, I say. Only thing that sells, PS3 is the Blu Ray, and it is not what is it hyped to be, take it from a serious videophile.

I've been trying to convince a buddy of mine all year to buy a 360, this bundle may just be what finally pushes him over.
