The upcoming bundles are set to hit on November 7th and will be Xbox 360 Premium bundles with either Gears of War 2, James Bond: Quantum of Solace, Tomb Raider: Underworld with 1200 MS Points, or Prince of Persia, and each will cost EUR 269.

Dont care, dont post as everything is aging and will soon be replaced. Sorry i couldnot resist as I often see people with such shallowness posting a statement and giving no info to support their idea and thoughts.

Great marketing stratedgy to pack Gow2 and others with the consoles. It should help with sales with the release of new games, recent drop in xbox360 prices, and the upcoming christmas season.

360 will not be replaced just yet, their selling to many to just drop it when it's reaching it's peak.

Bundles suck, they are a rip off, just give us further reductions on the hardware and let us choose what software we want to purchase.

This is overkill to me. But certainly not a bad deal. I don't know what the guy above me is talking about. You're getting a game for half price. How on earth is that a rip-off? If you really hate it you can throw the game in the trash can out of spite as soon as you get it, you can buy the version that doesn't have any games, you can sell the game and use the $$$ to buy a game you want, or you buy a bundle that includes a game that you want.

Big business isn't the devil by default. You afterdawners have to get over that. You say some of the silliest of things because of it.

What isnt? when friends got there treo 600's less than a year later i got my new treo 650! then came the 700, it continues! an iphone then the 3g version! as soon as something is released there is another project to be worked on! something new & better! xbox had the 360 & it beats the ps2, ps3 has more features than the 360, well now it is M$ turn! BR is going to be replaced! it is all time! if you buy for future use you will never buy anything!

I guess my point is there is always something NEW to be sold to us & it is just hopefully better! weather you wait 1 year or 5 years! as soon as you get that new item it is old & going to be replaced!

I hope the U.S. gets some good bundles for the holiday's.

Bah, it a cop-out to say the X360 will be outdated in a hurry or that M$ will pop out a new platform in the next couple of years- that makes poor business sense. Development will proceed in optimising code for the thing regardless of what the naysayers reckon. Conversely $ony shoehorn in a single IBM processor designed specifically for cheaper massive multi-array supercomputers with a lamer GPU and PS3 true-believers think they own the shop. Never mind it takes twice as much money and time to get up to speed; and indie devs can just go to the wall as far as they're concerned.

Get over it, a good game is a good game as far it goes- I still go retro with my PS2.
