WagJag Canada: Xbox 360 Only $175

If you’ve been waiting for the price of an Xbox 360 to go down, well it has once again. The last time I blogged it, it was $199 and now it is only $175 or $225 depending on what option you choose.

There are two options for this deal. The first is $175 and includes:

  • Xbox 360 console with 250 GB hard drive
  • One wireless controller, headset and composite A/V cable
  • One year’s manufacturer warranty

The second option is $225 and includes all of the above plus:

  • Xbox Kinect and the game Kinect Adventures

My kids were recently gifted a Wii U, which they love, but I have heard from friends that kids with both will play the Xbox more. Since my kids are mostly little, I decided the Wii U was more family friendly for now and maybe if the price keeps going down for Xbox 360, we’ll get one of those too.

What’s cool about it too is that you can use it to store movies and other date right on the console, which you can’t with the Wii. You can also stream movies, which is another feature you can’t do with Wii U.

The shipping is also included on this deal, so the price you see is the price you pay.

Future Shop Canada: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3/xBox 360) For $40 (Save $20)

Future Shop Canada: Grand Theft Auto V (PS3/xBox 360) For $40 (Save $20)

Thieve Autos in a grand fashion at FutureShop for only $39.99!

Is this a good game? I don’t know, I haven’t played it yet. I dig the other GTA games, so I have to imagine that this is better. If we go just by the number of Guinness World Records it has broken, it’s the best game ever. Here’s why:

  • Best-selling action-adventure video game in 24 hours
  • Best-selling video game in 24 hours
  • Fastest entertainment property to gross $1 billion
  • Fastest video game to gross $1 billion
  • Highest grossing video game in 24 hours
  • Highest revenue generated by an entertainment product in 24 hours
  • Most viewed trailer for an action-adventure video game

Not too shabby, right? By all reports this is a great game, and the online content is supposed to be pretty awesome, too. It’s the first main series entry in seven years, so if you’ve been waiting like millions of others have, here is your chance to get it for $20 off the regular price of $59.99. That’s only $39.99. This is also a great gift idea for the car stealing maniac in your life.

Since this is over the $20 shipping threshold, it also gets free shipping!

Future Shop Canada: Battlefield, Call of Duty Or Assassin’s Creed Games Free With Any PS3/xBox 360/Wii U Game Trade-In

Future Shop Canada: Battlefield, Call of Duty Or Assassins Creed Games Free With Any PS3/xBox 360/Wii U Game Trade In

Hold on to your butts, people, FutureShop is putting on a big one! This is straight up free video games just for trading in any PS3, xBox 360 or Wii U game. This deal is in-store only.

This seems like a lie doesn’t it? Well, I heard about it in the Financial Post and even their readers were saying that there is no way this is true, so much so that the Corporate Communications Manager of FutureShop tweeted to say that this is true. Crazy, am I right?

You aren’t getting junky games. You’re getting three of the biggest releases of the year with a simple trade-in. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghost or Battlefield 4: they cost nothing, you just need to go to the store and trade in any of your games. There is a limit of one per customer, per day. There are some other restrictions too, so read the whole post I linked you to up there. You better believe that my wife and I are going to be there Saturday and Sunday picking up copies of these. I don’t even want them, I just want to flip them on Kijiji for $40 later on. If I never sell them, I didn’t really lose anything.

The deal starts on the 9th and goes until the 11th. I guess this is also valid at Best Buy, but I haven’t been able to confirm.

WagJag Canada: Xbox 360 With Kinect & 2 Games Only $199

Posted by on September 9, 2013 at 3:00 PM

WagJag Canada: Xbox 360 With Kinect & 2 Games Only $199

WagJag Canada has a great deal on an Xbox 360 with Kinect and two games, now only $199, with a value of $338. Shipping is also included, which is a bonus.

My kids think they are deprived because they are the only kids they know who don’t have some form of gaming system. They have LeapPads, but my oldest rarely uses his now. We had a Wii, but it got broken (what a shocker in my house!), so now we only have the computer or my husband or my smartphones. Thinking about Christmas we are debating getting an iPad, some other kind of tablet or a gaming system for the kids. The first two seem the most breakable, and this Xbox deal is a good one.

Price comparing, the Xbox with Kinect on its own goes for about $250. Add the two games and you’ve gone up to at least $300 in value, so this is a great package deal.

Your package includes Kinect Disneyland Adventures game and the Kinect Adventures game plus one wireless controller with Kinect. There is also built-in wifi and ethernet connections. You can watch HD movies and stream TV with Xbox Live. Your item will ship to you about two to three weeks after deal end, and there is a limit of one per person. Simply buy the deal and wait for your shipment.

Microsoft Canada: Buy an Xbox 360 Game Now, Trade it in to Get the Xbox One Version for Only $10! (In Store)

Microsoft Canada: Buy an Xbox 360 Game Now, Trade it in to Get the Xbox One Version for Only $10! (In Store)

Don’t want to wait until November 22 to get that sweet, sweet game for Xbox One, but don’t want to waste money on games for the Xbox 360? Microsoft Canada has a solution.

First thing I want to point out is that this is only available if you can make it in to a physical Microsoft store, and there are not a lot of them. The few they do have are in big, populated areas, but I figured I’d put the deal up here anyway. I know a lot of people might be excluded from this deal, but a lot of people live in these cities too. There are two locations in Toronto, one in Vancouver and one in Burnaby. They are building one in the West Edmonton Mall and a second in Burnaby. If you can’t make it to one of these places, I’m sorry, you’re out of luck.

I think we can all agree (because gamers are notorious for agreeing on the internet) that Microsoft messed up the launch of the Xbox One. I’ve been watching E3 for a long time and I’ve never seen a crowd lose it over an announcement as much as they did over the PS4. At that moment, the xBone was born and Microsoft started backpedaling.

One of the things they are doing to dig out of the hole they have created for themselves is this deal. You buy an Xbox 360 game now and bring it in, with your receipt, to a physical Microsoft Store and trade it in for the Xbox One version for only $10. It’s an amazing deal and I hope someone at Playstation decides to do this too!

It’s only available on certain big title games. The games are:

  • Battlefield 4
  • Madden NFL 25
  • Need for Speed Rivals
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts
  • NBA2K14
  • FIFA 14
  • Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

These are all big name games that are going to be murder to wait for!

Amazon Canada: Bioshock Infinite (PC/PS3/xBox 360) For $39.99 (Save $20)

Posted by on August 13, 2013 at 4:00 PM

Amazon Canada: Bioshock Infinite (PC/PS3/xBox 360) For $39.99 (Save $20)

Bioshock: Infinite is one of the most popular games to come out this year, and right now it’s yours for $20 less, from Amazon Canada!

People lost their minds over this game. People lose their minds over the Bioshock series in general, but Bioshock: Infinite seems to have really taken off. On Metacritic it has a 94/100 from professional reviewers, with 68 positive reviews and no mixed or negative reviews. The users are a bit harder on it with an 84/100. Still, not too shabby. A lot of the negative player reviews are 0/100 or 10/100 which, to me, means you thought you were getting a My Little Pony game and accidentally got this, or you’re just being hateful. Most people agree that this game is great, so go for it and ignore all the hateful reviewers.

The game is normally $59.99, but Amazon is saving you $20, so you only pay $39.99. I checked around some other places and it looks like everyone else is still selling it for $59.99.

Shipping will be free on this game, since it’s above $25!

Microsoft Canada: 12 Months Of xBox Live Gold Free When You Buy Office 365 Home Premium/University

Posted by on July 20, 2013 at 9:00 PM

Microsoft Canada: 12 Months Of xBox Live Gold Free When You Buy Office 365 Home Premium/University

Microsoft knows you’re gonna work hard with Office 365, so they’re going to make it easy to play hard with a free xBox Live Gold subscription!

Microsoft Office 365 is a pretty neat new take on Office. Traditionally, Office costs hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Now, you pay a periodical subscription fee for the service.

The home premium version costs $99/year and the University edition is $79/four years. With the university version, you need to show a valid student, staff or faculty ID. In some cases even an alumni card has been known to work, but that’s not guaranteed. This gives you a download of the full Office suite and access to any updates that come along during your subscription period. You also get a bunch of storage space to store your documents and access to them from wherever there’s internet available.

When you get this, you also get a free subscription to xBox Live Gold, so you can use all of your xBox 360′s online features from gaming to media consumption. Normally, a twelve month subscription to xBox Live Gold is $59.99, but you get it for free!

Being a digital download means there’s no shipping costs, too.

xBoxOne or PS4? Let me know why in the comments below!

Pricematters Canada: Kinect Sensor + Game For $49.99

Pricematters Canada: Kinect Sensor + Game For $49.99

MTF Pricematters Canada has a fantastic deal on the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor with Kinect Adventures! Pricematters has the Kinect Sensor for only $49.99 plus shipping. The wholesale price according to Pricematters was $107.99.

It is in its original box and doesn’t look to be refurbished. Shipping depends upon where you live. Even with shipping the price is fantastic. Just to prove it lets price compare with Amazon Canada. Amazon.ca has the exact same sensor with game for $99.99 which is discounted from $149.99. Pricematters’ price is 50% off Amazon’s price. That is pretty awesome. Even if shipping is around $10 to $15 you are still saving a huge amount of money.

Do any of our Moosers have a Kinect? What do you think of it?

WagJag Canada: 40% Off xBox 360 & Kinect & 2 Games! (Now $199)

Posted by on April 21, 2013 at 7:00 AM

WagJag Canada: 40% Off xBox 360 & Kinect & 2 Games! (Now $199)

With this superfantastic deal from WagJag, there is no reason not to own an xBox 360 anymore!

That intro was a lie. Maybe you just don’t want an xBox 360. I’m okay with that. I understand. Especially if you already have a PS3 or an xBox 360. For those of you who want one, this is a great chance to get one for super cheap. Also, Superfantastic is a word. Look it up. No, don’t. That was also a lie.

This is what the deal includes:

  • 4GB xBox 360
  • Kinect Sensor
  • Two games – Kinect Disneyland Adventures and Kinect Adventures
  • One controller

The games included aren’t the best things out there but they are fun enough to toy around with and to test the Kinect. The retail price of this package is $338 but you get it for only $199. You save $139! This deal is limited so if you’re gonna get one, get one now. Shipping is included in the price.

EB Games Canada: $25 Gift Card w/ Purchase Of Select xBox 360s + 30% Off xBox Accessories

EB Games Canada: $25 Gift Card w/ Purchase Of Select xBox 360s + 30% Off xBox Accessories

Late to the xBox game? Well, now is the time to pick one up! And if you’re picking one up anyways, you might as well get it at EB Games and get a $25 gift card with it!

They have two different xBox 360s sets available. One is the xBox 360 Elite 250GB and one is, from what I can tell, the same console but with two games. I feel like I must be missing something but it is what it is. Shipping will be around the $10 mark for the consoles and $5 for the accessories and games.

It’s hard to do an article about the xBox 360 because I feel like everyone who would buy one already knows about it. The xBox is just a great console with great games. You can’t say much else about it. It has awesome games, a great online experience and it can be used as the center of your living room’s media setup.

The main part of this deal, for me, is the $25 EB gift card. That in itself is enough to make it a good deal, but EB just won’t quit! They are also offering up to 30% off the xBox 360 headset, the xBox 360 controller or a twelve month xBox Live plan. You can even get a deal on Halo 4!

Since I don’t really have much to say about the xBox 360, how about you tell me about the xBox 360? Is this your first xBox 360 or have you had one for a while? Why do you love it? Is it the games? The media stuff? Maybe you just love Kinect! Whatever it is, let me know in the comments below!

The Source Canada: $100 Off Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle

The Source Canada is selling the 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundle for $100 off, now only $199.96. I price matched elsewhere and couldn’t find a price even close to this for this bundle.

This bundle comes with a black Xbox 360 console, a wireless controller, the Kinect sensor, a one-month subscription to Xbox LIVE and the games Kinect Adventures and Kinect Disneyland Adventures. It has 4GB of internal flash memory and built-in wi-fi for easy connection to Xbox LIVE.

What’s great about Xbox 360 Kinect is that it is a full-body input system, where you are the controller. You need to do the motions with your entire body, rather than just your thumbs, to move the characters in the games.

There are many great controller-free games for Xbox 360, and you can get a lot of them, plus HD movies from Xbox LIVE. You need an internet connection to access this service.

Check out all the awesome reviews for this machine.

Shipping is free to the store, or starts at $4.99.

WagJag Canada: xBox 360 4GB w/ Kinect + 2 FREE Games Only $200 (Save $100)

WagJag Canada is bringing the serious gaming love with the great xBox 360 Kinect bundle!

These generally retail for about $299 with only one game. So all said and done you’re probably saving $120. The bundle comes with a 4GB xBox 360, a Kinect, Disneyland Adventures and Kinect Adventure. Not a bad haul for only $200 bucks.

If you are so inclined, you can actually use your Kinect to control other stuff. There are tons of projects out there, some easy DIY stuff, some more complex projects, that allow you to use the Kinect as an interface for other things. This video has some neat Kinect based projects. Even if you aren’t technologically inclined, people have written programs that let you do some neat stuff. You can just install them on your computer like any other program.

This deal is very limited in quantity so if you want one, get it right now!

Amazon.ca: $50 Amazon Canada Video Game Store Gift Card w/ xBox 360

There are a lot of constants in life. We’re all going to die. The sun always rises in the east. And we always have to shell out another $50 for a game after we get a new console. The only way to get around it is to buy your xBox 360 from Amazon Canada and have them buy your game for you.

I wish that you got this deal every time you bought a console. I understand it’d be hard and expensive to let you pick whatever game you want and get ir for free with every console but maybe the console manufacturer could let you pick a game that they published. Buy an xBox, get a Microsoft game, buy a PS3, get a Sony Game. Buy a Wii U and get a terrible console… I mean a Nintendo game.

Well, that’s just a dream at this point so companies like Amazon Canada have to step in and hook us up. Like I said in the title, the gift card is only valid for video games purchased from Amazon Canada, not for general Amazon purchases. Also, it isn’t an actual card, it’s a virtual one. They email you a coupon code that you can use to save $50 off your game purchase. The xBox is the $199.99 4GB version of the 360.

As per usual, purchases over $25 ship for free from Amazon.

Comixology: Celebrating the Release of Halo 4 with a Halo Comic Sale!

Posted by on November 6, 2012 at 5:00 AM

Comixology: Celebrating the Release of Halo 4 with a Halo Comic Sale!

If you’re a Halo fan, why not get some more Halo in your life? Comixology is offering more Halo to you in comic form!

There are four comics here for $6.99 each and they are all bigger than your standard comic, coming in at between 105 and 125 pages. As is usual, Comixology doesn’t include their “before” prices. These are digital comics and you can read them ony our computer, iOS device or Android. I suggest their tablet apps. They are fabu.

I think media properties like this are an odd thing. I’m not a huge fan of Halo (even though I have been known to partake in a Halo LAN party or two) but I’m definitely interested in the comics. I definitely won’t buy Halo 4 (which comes out today) but if I can convince myself that it’s a good idea to buy more comics when I have tons pilingup already, then I will be grabbing these. There are a few things like that. Twilight for instance. I know people (guys) who would rather gag themselved with a knife than read the Twilight books but totally dug the movies. The Walking Dead is another. I think my heart would stop from shock if I ever saw my wife pick up a Walking Dead comic but we watch the latest from the TV series every week. It’s an interesting phenomena.
