Xbox 360 holiday deals are heading to India

Just because Microsoft’s latest game console, Xbox One, is on the horizon doesn’t mean the company has forgotten about the Xbox 360. The company has announced three holiday value bundles for their customers in India - and they are sweet deals.

The first bundle foregoes Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect sensor and instead tries to win you over with a plethora of video game titles and a 250GB Hard Drive. The bundle includes four games including Darksiders 2, Batman Arkham City, Halo Reach and Gears of War 3. The bundle will cost Rs 24,990 ($407 USD) at launch.

The other two buddies include Kinect sensors, while their storage capacity and included games differ. The first bundle has a 4GB Hard Drive and includes FIFA 14 and your choice of either Kinect Adventures, Kinect Disneyland and YourShape Fitness Evolved 2013 or Fruit Ninja and Forza Motorsport 4. This bundle will cost you Rd 26,990 ($440 USD).

The last bundle is a 250GB Xbox 360 with Kinect and includes Minecraft, Kinect Adventures, Dance Central 2, and Kinect Sports – it will retail for Rs 34,990 ($571).

The three bundles are aimed at different price budgets, and we like that the cheaper of the two Kinect bundles allows users to choose between more family friendly games and games for the intense gamer.

All holiday bundles will be available starting October 12, 2013 – if you haven’t picked up an Xbox 360 and don’t intend on purchasing an Xbox One, some of these compelling deals might be a reason to dive into the 360 ecosystem now.

With Microsoft’s launch of the Xbox One next November, we do expect a price cut for the base Xbox 360, but we are unsure if the Holiday Value Bundles will be readjusted – most likely, they will not be.

Are any of our readers located in India planning on picking up one of these sweet bundles?
