Wal-mart cuts price of 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle

Wal-mart cuts price of 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle Joystiq posted a picture earlier in which Wal-Mart had discounted the price of the 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle.
The picture led to speculation that Microsoft would do an across-the-board price cut on their consoles following Sony's recent price cut on the PlayStation 3.

For the week beginning August 28th, Wal-Mart is slashing the price $50 to $249, in-line with the PS3 (non-bundled).

Microsoft has responded to the price cut, saying:

Walmart made an independent decision to implement this temporary price cut. We've made no announcements about price drops, and do not discuss our pricing plans in advance. Xbox is the number-one selling console in the U.S. for 13 of the past 14 months, and is showing record growth. With an incredible line-up of games and entertainment, we're expecting the biggest year in Xbox history as the best-selling console worldwide.

price cut or not, 4gb isn't worth it and might as well get the 300.00 250gb bundle since Kinect doesn't look that fun IMO. I might get another 360 since my old 360 the one old white one with jasper motherboard is at parents house in TX while I now like in Oregon.

Wasn't M$ giving this model away with the purchase of a computer touting Windows 7 (sans the Kinect or course)? As this is the case, what is Walmart actually doing that's so special? This little charade simply isn't worth the money.

I believe I mentioned that fact.
