No mention of a GC deal on anything but the Elite and Arcade, however the Charge Station says "with any xbox 360 system" so the Spring bundle should work with that promo.

Nothin' for me, but decent DS deals if you got youngsters.

Damn...same crappy DS games they advertise on sale every week...rarely a decent one in the bunch. Most wouldn't move at $5 a piece...

SPLASH!

Same here. Doubt Best Buy or Target will have anything.

Great deals on the XB360, especially considering the spring bundle.

However, the rumors of a XB360 slim are gaining traction with the leaked motherboard photos.

F--- me, Red Steel 2 is $60? Guess that makes sense since it bundles the wii motion plus, and getting the extra one is a good deal.

I've been meaning to get one.

Nobody else interested in Red Steel 2 for basically $20. That is tempting.

He's factoring the bundled Wii Motion Plus as well as the extra free Wii motion Plus from TRU. That's about $40 for both alone.

I don't really agree with that equation, but it's certainly one way to look at it.

My TRU preorder card for Lego HP showed this week--but their web site shows 05/18/2010 - did it get pushed out?! Was hoping for one of those $20 GC if you buy in 3 hours deals.

Right, it only works if you were going out to the store that same day to plunk down full retail for 2 WM Pluses.

$40 for Mass Effect 2 isn't bad for those who missed out on Amazon's Deal of the Day.

Also, I noticed:

-1600 Call of Duty branded Microsoft Points for $17.99 (instead of $19.99).
-Modern Warfare 2 (360 only) $49.99.
-Buy DJ Hero for $99.99 and get a second turntable $29.99 (instead of $59.99).

I'd do the 360 deal probably if it weren't for the recent talk of a 360 Slim.

Whoa... that 360 deal is really good. I have a feeling Microsoft is trying to get rid of inventory for the "Slim" since most stores are selling the 360 with gift cards now. Just my guess.

Damn, ME2 is a no-brainer at $40.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Yeh, I think MS seems to try to remove remaining fat Xbox 360s before Slim comes out.:D

Gotta give Worst Buy props...that's a pretty awesome ad for a random, non-holiday week. You could get an Xbox 360 Elite with Halo, Forza 3, and Mass Effect 2 and around $9-10 left on a giftcard for $300 + tax...that is a straight up sick deal if you are in the market for a console.

I doubt there will ever be a 360 Slim, it's just not a wise product for Microsoft. But that 1600 points card is tempting me since my local Kmart does not carry them.

A 360 slim?

...ha...haha....hahahaha.....aaaaaaaahahahahahahahahahaha

They cant get a 360 that is 'fat' that doesnt have heat issues and your telling me they are going to come out with a 'slim' model that will run hotter being that the plastic casing will now be 'squeezing' the motherboard even more?

(granted the Jasper model is better but still not immune to the heat issues...I definitely would see the duo Valhalla chip being the one they would use in a 'slim' offering)
