Hate to disagree with you but I think you should mention the new Sony Assassins Creed 3 PS3 bundle which is equal or better deal for $299 than the xbox360 one above. New design PS3 slim with 500GB hard drive rather than a 250GB and with a new game release (physical copy) of Assassins Creed 3 rather than old releases (not that there bad) and of course the normal stuff..controller etc..just sayin... 8)

@mewarmo990: That 360 Forza 4/Skyrim download bundle should be in stores now. I see it Best Buy ads.

""Yeah I wish the PS3 would drop. I have an old launch fatty but it's loud as fuck for whatever reason. Would suck to give up the backward compatibility though""

make sure theres no dust in there.

& yeah, losing BC would suck, i too have fatty from launch, i hope before it dies theres a new model out with BC back in. Maybe they'll do that closer to PS4's release to draw some more sales for old hardware.

I'm really hoping for the Vita price drop this holiday or at least a really good Black Friday sale. I need my Persona fix.

Is that photo of an upcoming bundle, or a current/past one? I kind of regret not picking up the Halo Reach/Fable one last year.

Thats a decent bundle for the Xbox 360 but the price cut on the Wii is a laugh.  It needs to be $100 right now and bundled with two controllers and two nunchucks.  My woman wants one and I do kinda want one as well.  Not sure if we'll just say screw it and get it or wait it out till next year.  Thou it is funny seeing people on craigslist trying to sell theirs at near retail prices.

Also remember that the Wii now has no Gamecube ports, just so you know.

Totally forgot. Definitely not worth it then.

@crusader8463: Got a "bro" like that and he's ready to "jump in" now. All those coop games that i no longer have but he's looking to get into with me NOW, damn. He's in for a treat though. Check amazon, game prices for older games are so low right now. It's insane.

I was able to hold off on re-buying a Wii until last year. I had bought a Wii and Zelda on launch day and it cost me around $460. For that same amount of money last winter I bought a Wii and 20 games for it. If you can wait you really do seriously save a metric fuck ton of money.

still too much

I think this will always be said. If you don't have one by now, then any price is going to be "too much" for you.

Yeah, whats the point? At this time in the cycle?

Um that's exactly why they would do it.

Posted by Mumrik

It's crazy to think that a seven year old console still costs $200+

If you see the Wii as little more than a GC, then that's at least as nuts...

Posted by ShaneCase

If someone is looking for a 360 still , that seems like a really worthwhile bundle . If it comes with skyrim and forza ?

Posted by BlackLantern

That's good news, I reckon.

Damn it. PS3 is the one I actually want to drop in price.

I want a damn vita and I want to play The Golden. Why do they have to be so 'spensive?

My launch 360 is so damn loud and has such low storage that I'll probably get a new one this year.

The fact that your launch 360 is still working after all this time is a goddamn miracle. I bought my first in '06, right around the time the first Gears of War came out, and I'm on my third replacement.

It hasn't been without it's problems though. It red ringed me twice and just a month ago it stopped reading discs(I had to replace the laser in the disc drive). It's also strange to me that Microsoft wouldn't include the full retail version of Forza 4 but instead have the "Essentials Edition" which cuts out over 100 cars.

@flushpockets: Really? Do new models still have gamecube controller ports at least?

No thanks, I'll save that money for the next gen console.

I'm not surprised to see some console price drops, but don't really understand why Nintendo doesn't just drop the Wii price to $99 since that console has been on its last legs for a while.

As for the 360 bundles they're still too expensive in my opinion. I'm much more interested in playing through my unfinished games for my PC, PS3, and Wii then buy a 360 just for a few games I might not finish.

I think "in my position" would be more reasonable than just in your general opinion. Perhaps more accurate. $250 is a pretty good price if you don't have all of the other consoles, considering you're much more likely to want more of the exclusives on the platform and less likely to have played the multiplatform games already.

With Wii's getting so cheap, maybe I'll pick one up.

Or more likely just buy the games and controllers and play it in 1080p on my computer, because I'm building a PC that will actually be capable of that finally. Cannot stand SD games at this point, otherwise I wouldn't mind shelling out the extra money.

It'll sell like hotcakes! Coated in bird shit.

pretty crazy to do that. i kind of think that people who want a console already have one. people who aren't poor that they can't afford anything.

The PS3 dropped to $249 a while ago, this is just MS catching up with them. I wouldn't expect a PS3 drop anytime soon.

I think the time has come for me to get a brand new X-Box 360. Don't get me wrong, I do love the system, but I've owned the one I have for three or 4 years, (it's the old white-designed box) and it feels old.

Out of a South American hostage situation, provided you were kidnapped with MacGuyver.

Posted by flushpockets

@Red: before you do that, I'm pretty sure they took out GameCube compatibility a while ago. Although there are some pretty good Wii games worth playing.

A Wii with an extra controller and Skyward Sword.

Posted by MikeydCT

wait til black Friday and cross my fingers Amazon has a good bundle deal on a 360 with a big HD.

Posted by MonkeyKing1969

Wow, I was expecting an actual cut in price not a crazy bundle. Oh, well easy come, easy go.

Posted by Red

Well, now I'm tempted to buy a Wii just for Xenoblade, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart and Fire Emblem. I lost my gamecube a while ago and I could use a console-based nintendo fix...

Posted by Joker369
@OleMarthin Yeah after getting a slim ps3 my 360 sounds like a jet taking off. Also, the 20GB HDD is getting really annoying.
Posted by KarmaPoliceman

Jesus, a Wii with two great games and a motion plus controller for $130 is a pretty great deal. I would almost sell my current Wii to buy that bundle if I didn't need the Gamecube ports.

Edited by That1BlackGuy

Fuck yes, best news I've heard in a while. I'm" a mid-to-end cycle console adopter so it goes without saying Xbox 360 here I come!... during Black Friday that is.

Believe it or not, but there are people out there that do not own a PS3/360/Wii and those people are probably incredibly price-sensitive.

I'm not incredibly cheap but I did sell my old 60 GB Xbox 360 a while ago in order to upgrade to the newer slim version, so perhaps its the time to get one but i just tire of the old ad infested Xbox ui. I want something new and no avatars please because i just dont care for them.

Posted by DystopiaX

Shame about the Vita, if they cut the price I might buy one, if only for P3 FES and P4 the Golden.

Still $300 bucks after you pay for a gold membership

if you're stupidly paying retail for xbox live then yes... however i do not and haven't for the last 6 years.

@triviaman09: @laserbolts: Ummm...Sony launched a brand new revision of the PS3 within the last couple of weeks at a much lower price point.

As for people that are saying "why get one this late in the cycle", the answer is simple: many people aren't going to be getting the new consoles for the next two years. Therefore, current gen is still very viable.

Also, Sony sold 2.3 million PS2s for the 2012 fiscal year. Definitely not too late for this generation.

@triviaman09: well good news, they raised it :)

I remember buying the first bundle for the 360.

Never played the Forza that came with it, but I played the hell out of Marvel Ultimate Alliance....

@alternate: Oh right, that would make sense. I forgot the new Wiis are black. I kept thinking of the original white Wiis while trying to make sense of "blank-tinted".

Posted by gamefreak9

How old is xbox 360? Like 7 years? Still selling so much? Come on... make it like 150 and I might come in.

Sony didn't lower the price on the PS3 when they released that new model. It's still $300 and they come with Uncharted 3.

The new PS3's RRP is higher than the RRP of the Slim it replaced. Sony doesn't like price cuts, they say they like to leave it up to retailers to do that.
