Microsoft has announced their Xbox 360 holiday bundle line up. This year, they’re offering a 500GB Xbox 360 console with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Black Ops 2 and a month Xbox Live Gold card for $249.

“Coming into its ninth holiday shopping season, Xbox 360 continues to deliver amazing games and entertainment experiences to consumers,” noted Mike Nichols, CVP of Marketing for Xbox. “These new bundles for holiday shoppers, new lower price points and new special edition blue console are sure to delight gamers young and old this holiday.”

Starting next week, you’ll have access to some of our best holiday bundles ever. For starters, our 500GB Holiday Value Bundle comes with two of the best first-person shooters on the platform, Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. You also get one month of Xbox Live Gold access, and a newly upgraded 500GB hard drive. All for $50 less, just $249!

As previously rumored, the same bundle will be available at Walmart, but it will come in a Blue console version.

In addition, as you may have seen, if you decide to buy your Xbox 360 at Walmart in the U.S., we’ve got a special edition version of this amazing bundle. The Xbox 360 Special Edition Blue Bundle also includes an iconic blue console and controller, decked out with arctic blue accents. It includes everything mentioned in the bundle above, for the same low price of $249. This will be available at Walmart starting on October 7.

    I feel bad for whoever buys it.

    • Super029something

      i feel bad for all of us mang, we all bought that piece of shit ghosts game.

      • amen

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Black Ops 2 was just as bad. They’re giving you 2 terrible [multiplayer] games on an outdated system lol.

        • Epicsand

          Blacks Ops 2 is not a bad game.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Everyone’s entitled to their opinion.

          • Epicsand

            They stated it as a fact.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It’s god-awful. One of the most broken games in the franchise. If you think BO2 is good, then I feel sorry for you. One of the most unbalanced and broken CoDs ever…

        • ccrows

          OK, if Ghosts and BO2 were bad, then tell us what your favorite COD game was?…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            CoD 4 and World at War.

          • MichiganerE

            Respect to you.

          • Penguin-Kun

            MW2 was broken more than BO2, but it’s considered a fan favorite to most CoD players. I don’t what you’re talking about, BO2 being the most broken and unbalanced. Sure it might be broken and unbalanced but MW2 didn’t even had updates and all for guns, perks and equipment patches. BO2 goes to number two for being the most broken and unbalanced CoD. Still, in my opinion, it’s great because it’s the only CoD I’ve spent so much time and it was really rewarding for the camos and all. I know it’s your opinion for saying BO2 is completely bad, so I’m not going to say anything bad because it’s called an opinion.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            MW2 was still fun and revolutionary, but yes, I can’t play it because of the noob tubes. It’s not my favorite CoD (but I had a lot of memories with it). MW2 is a fan favorite because even though it was broken, it left us with memories, both good and bad. MW2 wasn’t patched because the original IW had a fiasco with Activision and formed Respawn.

            BO2 was good for its fast pace, but Treyarch took a thousand steps back and catered to the wrong communities.

        • Unit

          Black Ops 2 was the best COD since COD4. You need Jesus, you demon spawn.

          • Whoa

            it’s called having an opinion. I personally think BO2 and ghost were shit. Favorite Cod for my was Black Ops 1 and im fully aware of its flaws. i just had more fun in that game.

          • you’re right man, I like bo2 and hate ghosts but, it’s just my opinion. 🙂

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Black Ops 2 is a broken piece of shit lol.

          • James Veach

            Get the fuck out. Someone banish him from the community.

          • MichiganerE

            Black Ops 2 was good… but CoD 1, 2, 4, WaW, MW2 and BO1 shit all over it.

        • Sal

          Ghosts isn’t that bad. The problem was that IW listened too much to the community. I would still be playing it if wasn’t for the dead PC community.

          Bo2 on the other hand…

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            IW didn’t listen to the community at all. Neither did Treyarch. Hopefully SH is an improvement to these 2 awful companies.

          • Sal

            Back on BO2, people wanted bigger maps and stronger guns. That’s what they got.

    • ccrows

      Why? People are still playing those games.

      & BTW there’s gonna be a ton of people turned off by all the extra BS that SH is using in AW, which means that those games and even older COD games will still be going strong till at least Trey 2015…

      • Whoa

        “turned off by all the extra BS” What “BS” exactly?

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Flying IED Drones, Tougness, Danger Close, *maybe* Exo Stim, quickscoping, etc.

          • Whoa

            Ahh I see, I feel like toughness shouldn’t be a perk at all just something to give everyone naturally. Danger Close doesn’t seem as bad due to Exo-jump and dash. Flying IED Drones has to go asap. Quickscoping…..it’s still sad they cant fix this.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            They can fix quickscoping if they wanted to, they’re just catering to retards. It IS still a new engine, I think quickscoping was purposely put in.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Then they can go ahead and rage at the broken ass games lol. Not my problem.

        I’m not playing BO2 for another year.

  • jordanxbrookes

    FOR JUST $249!

  • Bartram22

    Who ever buys this can have one of my brain cells must be a lonely place only having the one

  • StaticShockFather

    What’s the point of buying this when Microsoft will stop giving the 360 support in like two years?

  • OrangeGlenPatriot

    Should I buy this or the XBOX 1 w/Madden ? :/
    I want to play cod with my friends but they all have xbox and I have PS3/4 or should i just go nex gen?

    • Bartram22

      Here you go *hands you brain cell*

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Neither, get a vanilla PS4.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Eww, a vanilla PS4. I personally prefer chocolate 😛

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Mehhhh Neapolitan is a good choice, too.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’d fap to that, wait what?

          • Whoa

            *Grabs lotion* Continue?

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      Get Xbox One, you already have Ps3/4. Might as well get the One, plus i bet your friends will get it soon too.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        TERRIBRU ADVICE

        • Will WilFredo Mendoza

          Then whats your advice?? He has PS3/4 and either wants 360 or ONE! Why get an Old Gen if sooner or later, everyone will have new gen. Idiot.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Why does he need both an XB1 and PS4? What a waste of money.

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza

            Reread his comment. He cant decide either for friends or for Madden.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            He says he has PS3/PS4. All his friends are on 360. So he’s asking if he should buy this 360 deal to play with his friends, or get the Madden XB1 bundle and wait till his friends upgrade to either XB1 or PS4. I say that owning both 360 or XB1 AND a PS4 is a waste of money, he should just stick with the PS4, which he already owns.

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza

            Why should he only stick to the PS4? He clearly wants both.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Obviously not, since he’s asking if he should get it. Also, why pay an extra $400 or $500 for another console when they both do the same thing?

          • MichiganerE

            Because of exclusives.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I don’t think any XB1 exclusive is worth $400. But that’s my opinion. Sure, some exclusives look fun like Sunset Overdrive, but I’m not willing to dish out that much money just to play it.

          • Guest

            There’s more exclusives than that.The Master Chief Collection,

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            If he was a huge Halo fan, it would’ve made more sense to buy an XB1 in the first place, you don’t need both consoles.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            No need for the name calling, I was kidding. But there’s no reason to get an Xbox One when its games are weak. If you’re going to get two consoles, then get a Wii U. I would recommend it over an Xbone.

          • :D

            LOOOL good one sillibk XD you crack me up… 😀

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza

            I apologize for the name calling. Had a rough day, i shouldnt take it out on good people. But I was just helping him based on his comment, he wants xbox cause of friends or One for Madden. Idk.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            We all have rough days. One of my kittens died in an accident yesterday. :'(

            I was helping him out, too. I don’t think the One is a console that people should buy, I’d recommend the Wii U or PS4 over it, any day.

          • Will WilFredo Mendoza

            🙁 May that kitten R.I.P.

            Ill be honest, my brother got a PS4 and I play it like crazy, considering he isnt even home. However I plan to buy the One for Titanfall (I know, probably a dumb reason) and who knows other exclusives. PS4 is already in my home so i technically got both lol.

            I just asked my bro if he is even gonna play and he just sold it to me for $100. :O im good to go lol

          • Ratboy

            Bro get titanfall on the PC… From experience its much for fun.

          • Ratboy

            Omg the wii u is totally better then xbone or the ps4. Like comon, HD gaming ftw and has the “Super Cool” gamepad. Also has the most original name ever “Wii U” Like that wii combined with U. Like comon soooooooo cool! jk wii u is okay not the best in my opinion

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Best first party exclusives out of the 3 consoles.

    • Epicsand

      I would not “buy this or the XBOX 1 w/Madden” if your friends are going to buy next-gen consoles. The PS4 is more powerful, the prices for it and online gaming on it are lower than on the Xbox 1, and you have it. As one of those friends, with those reasons, I would buy a PS4.

  • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Shouldn’t this be $100 tops? I mean, X1 and PS4 are here. They’re still selling last gen for $249. *Sigh*

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      That’s Microsoft, for you.

      • Super029something

        what? 160GB PS3 console’s are $249 without any games……………… Do you PS3 players even think before you comment? holy shit.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Uh do you fanboys think before you comment? I don’t have a PS3. I have 3 Xbox 360’s.

          • Super029something

            I honestly dont know if you’re trolling or just retarded

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I should be asking you the same thing.

          • Super029something

            LOL If you were more intelligent then me you would be able to think of your own comeback you moronic cunt

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            “Moronic cunt” ooh irony. It’s funny because you said I was a fanboy and had a PS3 when I didn’t. So who’s really the “moronic cunt”, Xbox fanboy?

          • Super029something

            Okay so i made a false assumption, that doesnt change the fact that you’re retarded. You implied in your first post that microsoft are charging too much money for there console when in reality this is a much cheaper deal then PS3’s console/console bundles.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Orly? O.o

            XD people would be stupid to get bundles. I don’t know how my IQ is lower than 70 just because of me talking shit about your precious console’s garbage bundle lol.

          • Super029something

            you dont seem to understand that this bundle is a good deal. you save alot of money compared too ps3 bundles. that was my point, and it is correct. you have no argument. please kill yourself

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Lol you’re a prick. You’re the one with no argument. You’re getting 2 terrible CoD games on an outdated system. Your “points” hold no value whatsoever.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Since I’m more intelligent than you, fanboy.

        • Epicsand

          The PS3 is more powerful, a blu-ray and DVD player, DLNA supportive, and has free online, use of apps, and no ads.

        • Where are you buying your stuff? There are cheaper 500gb PS3 consoles, or then +10$ bundled with The Last of Us. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-playstation-3-the-last-of-us-bundle-500gb/3384001.p?id=1219091055302&skuId=3384001

        • DopeAap

          $249? I swear i saw a 300 something gig model for just 150

        • xX Hyper Xx

          Where did he mention PS3?

        • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

          Hey dipshit, I never said XBOX sucks, I just said they’re still selling “last gen.” I never knocked on XBOX you dickhead. Do XBOX players even read before they reply? Holy jelly.

          • Super029something

            Well since i wasnt even talking to you bud, would you be so kind to shut your stupid mouth?

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            Oh, shit, watch out. Looks like we’ve got a badass over here.

  • Why God!!

    WTF what a waste of money!!! Why would someone buy a last gen console that’s going to be fazed out in the next 2 years or so, just save up for the Xbox one, I mean why play something old and downgraded over the next gen consoles. I will still continue to play both my xbox 360 and the Xbox one, but why buy it with old games anyway and for that price. Microsoft can you please not try to show that your greedy.

  • NiftyGam3r

    They are trying to get rid of those extra 360’s lying around the factory. Poor souls

  • I_HAV2_POOP

    Had to fuck it up with GHOSTS!

  • J4MES

    Why would anyone buy this bundle? May as well splash out a bit more for an Xbox One and wait for Advanced Warfare. AW is also appearing on the 360 so if you can’t afford a One, just get a standard 360 slim cheap and buy AW separate. Very bizarre deal indeed.

  • Zarky

    No idea why anyone would spend $250 on a xbox 360 when the Xbox One is like $400? :S

    • Whoa

      For those that want a console and doesn’t want to drop an extra $150 for their young kids.

  • Whoa

    (^0^)/ Finally made an account!!!!

  • LinkandTingle

    Its a proven fact that MW2, WaW, BO1 and BO2 are the best CoD games of all times, and everyone knows that.
