Microsoft intros Xbox 360 holiday bundles

Console, gamepad deals

In a bid to spur upcoming holiday sales, Microsoft has announced two new gaming bundles. The first is the Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle, which links the high-end version of the 360 with Pure, an all-terrain racing game, and the kids' action title Lego Batman. The bundle should already be in Canadian and American stores, and cost approximately $299 US. The Elite is distinguished by a 120GB hard drive and HDMI output.

The second bundle, the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller Game Pack, is based around a black gamepad and costs $60. Games included with the hardware are all Xbox Live Arcade titles: Lumines LIVE!, Bomberman LIVE!, Geometry Wars 2 and Ms. Pac-Man. The last of the four must be downloaded using a token.

The deals follow a $50 rebate on regular Elites, and increased competition from rival console makers Sony and Nintendo. Nintendo recently dropped the price of the Wii to $200, while Sony has been enjoying record PlayStation 3 sales, in some cases beating out all current-generation consoles. Interest has likely been sparked by price cuts, and the introduction of the PS3 Slim.
