Haven't seen anything yet as far as online listing the new Xbox 360 Holiday Bundles, though my Best Buy store had a Microsoft rep come in and bundled/upgraded current consoles with games.

Hopefully these should be dropping throughout everywhere, Best Buy might just have the head start on the bundles. Feel free if anyone spots the bundles at other retailers, I'll update the OP.

The Holiday Bundles for 2012 are as follows:

250Gb Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle $299.99:
  • Forza Motorsport 4 (Disc)
  • Skyrim (Downloadable)
  • 1-Month of Xbox Live (which oddly lists Hulu Plus as well as Epix, not too sure if month trial is included of each service or saying you can use these services with XBL)

4Gb Kinect Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle $299.99:
  • Kinect Adventures (Standard disc with Kinect)
  • Kinect Disneyland Adventures (Disc)

250Gb Kinect Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle $399.99:
  • Kinect Adventures (Standard disc with Kinect)
  • Kinect Sports (Disc)
  • Dance Central 2 (Downloadable)

This is probably why all the Forza disc one cars are for sale as dlc as of yesterday.

Are you sure it was Skyrim? I had a rep come in as well and it just looked like a Dawnguard DLC code to me.

Makes since for Wal-Mart at least. We dropped the older systems $50 each (with the exception of the 4GB standard model.)

Yeah when I saw this listed on a UK site it seemed to be Skyrim DLC.

It doesn't make much sense that it would come with a Dawnguard DLC code. That would be making the assumption that the buyer either already has or was planning to buy Skyrim.

Here's a link to the UK thing, I can barely read whats on the front of the box but it looks like Dawnguard to me.

Edit - No wait thats bollocks, it says "Full Game Download" across the top. Must be the full game.

Edit 2 - Also that version of Forza 4 is gimped.

That's definitely Skyrim.

Yeah, there's no way they'd just give you Dawnguard. It's probably just a different picture for Skyrim.
Not a bad deal, but I just hate those full game downloads. I'd much rather have a disc.
If anyone does a $199 Black Friday deal on this, it will be hard to pass up, although I still plan on the Halo 4 console as my second xbox.

The fact that it doesn't come with Kinect makes it the best buying option ever.

Meh.. I picked up the 250GB 360 bundle last Black Friday from Best Buy that included 3 months of Live, Fable 3 (disc) and Halo Reach (download) for $199.

DC2 as a download is a good thing… except that DC3 is out soon. Then you'll want to export the tracks and play DC3, so you are back to using a disc. Can you export the tracks from a download version of DC2 at least?

If there is a decent bundle on Black Friday I will get a 360. There's a new Walmart down the street from me so this time I won't miss the Black Friday deals.

I have them in the BB I work at. 250 GB console (No Kinect) with a physical copy of Forza 4, a download voucher for Skyrim, and a month of Xbox Live for $299.99. Plus if you buy a console you get a year of @Gamer for free.

These bundles look familiar. They haven't moved the prices or changed up the bundles much in the past three years, except for the addition of Kinect in 2010. Otherwise it's the same bundle with different games, maybe a game added to the Kinect bundles over the years. I guess if they are the number one selling console they don't have much to worry about, but I wonder if they are leaving a portion of the market untapped with these bundles. If the core gamer didn't pick up the Halo Reach and Fable 3 bundle last year, are they going to be enticed by the Forza 4 and Skyrim bundle this year? You could argue over which games are better, have more value, etc. but I think that's just preference, they haven't moved the needle in terms of value with these bundles. I just wonder if they are leaving money on the table by not tapping the more price sensitive consumer. Despite the success of the 360 in the past few years, I have to wonder if the high price points are a parial cause of the slow sales NPD has been reporting this past year. Normally we would be seeing the consoles reaching out to a larger market with lower priced skus at this point.

I'm still trying to figure out the point of this thread. Though I really just want to ask why some people are arguing over Sony vs. Microsoft, but arguing implies there being a resolution at some point or another or a side conceding.

I think it's a very real possibility that these holiday bundle prices in mid-September will be on sale $100 cheaper by mid-November. Or at the very least come with a $50 GC and an extra controller. BF is still over 2 months away.

I understand that the companies like bundles because they can include a "free" game to keep the price higher, but I agree with some of the implied posts here that I think the companies would be better served to offer a cheaper SKU with no game to get more people buying the system. If there's no game included, then they'd almost be guaranteed a sale of at least one game at that point (except for replacement consoles or online only users), plus they'd look better price-wise against the new WiiU launch.
