Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

Downloadable Content for Titanfall FREE @ Xbox Store ($25 Value)

I know zip about Titanfall, but the internet is swarming with happy gamers because Microsoft has discounted a load of Titanfall DLC for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

Here is how the deal goes. The Titanfall Season Pass was $24.99 and is now on sale for $0.00. The season pass includes all three of the DLC packs for a total of nine maps.

I have linked directly to the Canadian store for these freebies. However, if you have regional issues (as in it shows en-CA in the website address), then your region may be defaulting to the USA. Click here to reset your region to Canada, as you must get these through the Canadian store.

Now, what if you already have one or two of these down loadable content packs? Well, you can get each pack – for free – separately. Separately, each of the three packs retailed for $9.99, so you are still saving a good chunk of money.

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox One DLC packs:

Here are the direct links for the individual Xbox 360 DLC packs:

Again, if you are redirected the the US website (even though I have linked to the Canadian side), then use the link above to change your default region. Xbox requires a credit card (that is why you need the Canadian region) but that card will not be charged for this dowloadable content.

Each pack comes with new maps, bug fixes, and new features. Here are the maps you will receive with each pack:

  • Expedition: War Games, Swampland, and Runoff
  • Frontier’s Edge: Dig Site, Export, and Haven
  • IMG Rising: Backwater, Zone 18, and Sandtrap

All of these maps come with the season pass or you can purchase the DLC packs individually through the links above. The season pass is most convenient if you do not already own one or more of these DLCs.

For players of Titanfall, this is approximately a $25 freebie! I do not play Titanfall myself, so I would love to hear from anyone who does and picks up this freebie.

March 10 Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

Posted by on March 10, 2015 at 12:19 PM Call of Duty Ghosts (XBox 360) Was $30 | Now $5 *HOT*

A few days ago, Call of Duty: Ghosts for the PS3 went on sale for $4.99 and sold out very quickly! Today, Amazon Canada dropped their price on the xBox 360 version. Call of Duty: Ghosts (xBox 360) is now on sale from $29.99 down to $4.99. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more at Amazon or pay around $5 for just this game to be shipped out.

A quick price comparison shows that this game is well below any other retailer’s price. Here is what other Canadian retailers are selling the xBox 360 version for:

  • $29.99 @ Future Shop Canada
  • $29.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $29.99 @ Toys R Us Canada
  • $49.99 @ Chapters Indigo Canada

Used copies retail for $24.99 at Best Buy and Future Shop. Essentially, you are getting a new copy for $20 cheaper than a used copy. Really, you cannot do better than that.

This game is really not that old. Released in November 2013, this first-person shooter video game is part of the Call of Duty line of games. I checked out the game on metacritic, where it has a 73/100 rating via critics. I did find out some interesting info on player development, which I thought I would share:

In Call of Duty: Ghosts you don’t just create a class, you create a soldier. Choose the head, body type, head-gear and equipment, and you can even create a female soldier for the first time. With over 20,000 possible combinations, you can create the soldier you’ve always wanted. And each soldier you create will also have his or her own load outs

I find it fascinating that you can create female soldiers in this game as female characters are often ignored in first-person shooter games like this. I really like this development, as I would love to create a kick-ass female soldier. I like males well enough, but creating a character within a game is a way of inserting yourself into the game in avatar form. I like to game, but i do not need a sex change!

If you want to see how this game plays on the xBox 360, there are plenty of YouTube videos to give you a walk through. I picked out this one, as it is nice and short.

March 6 XBox 360 Wireless Windows Controller Only $39 & Free Shipping Exclusive Code

Posted by on March 6, 2015 at 5:30 PM XBox 360 Wireless Windows Controller Only $39 & Free Shipping Exclusive Code has the best deal on a Microsoft XBox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows (USB). Originally $69.99, the Xbox 360 PC controller is on sale for $38.99. Use the Bargainmoose exclusive NCIX coupon MOOSE to receive free shipping on $25 or more. That means the Xbox 360 controller will ship for free to your home.

My quick price comparison sheet showed that the Xbox 360 Wireless controller for Windows retails for:

  • $54.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $59.95 @ Microsoft Canada
  • $49.99 + $6.99 shipping @
  • $51.99 + shipping @ Tiger Direct Canada
  • $47.99 @ Amazon Canada
  • $69.99 @ Best Buy Canada
  • $69.99 @ Future Shop Canada

As you can easily see from the price comparison, knocks the socks off the competition! Dell Canada is the next closest, and even then,’s price is $16 cheaper. You will not find a better deal on this controller.

This controller works just like a regular Xbox controller for your console and it comes with a USB adapter so it can function with your PC as well. This is really helpful when you play some games on the PC that can only be played with a controller. I tried downloading and playing Injustice: Gods Among Us on Steam, but you need a controller with that game. You cannot just use a mouse.

The reviews are super positive for this controller. One reviewer on Amazon said:

The Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Controller is probably the best available gamepad for the PC. It’s the most supported by games, it’s got one of the best layouts, and you can go ahead and use it on an Xbox 360 should the need ever arise.

I do not have an Xbox 360, but I might just buy this controller to use with my PC. I am used to a PS3 controller, but this should not be too different. I would just love the experience of some console games on my computer. I really like Empire Dynasty Warriors – but I do not want to buy another PS3 just to play it when my current console hits the dust. I do not game enough on a console for that.

I am really stoked about this deal because these controllers are in high demand and you save a bundle on shipping costs as well.

Future Shop: Turtle Beach Gaming Headset just $29.99 *HOT*

Future Shop is totally blowing my mind with their price on the Turtle Beach Ear Force DXL1 Dolby Surround Sound Gaming Headset for Boxing Week. Ignore the ‘savings’ as it is horribly inaccurate and check out my price comparison below. Future Shop has this Turtle Beach headset that retails for $100+ on sale for $29.99.

They have the same deal at Best Buy but the expiry dates are different. You can get this deal at Future Shop until the end of the year while Best Buy’s deal ends tonight.

I price compared this unit because the ‘saved’ price at Future Shop is way out to lunch. Here is what the competitors are actually selling this headset for:

  • $99.95 @ The Source Canada (backordered)
  • $127.77 @ Amazon Canada
  • $136.79 @ Staples Canada

Oh yes, this Turtle Beach gaming headset is quite the deal. While it is designed for the Xbox 360, it IS compatible with the Xbox One, a PC/MAC, and even a PS3/PS4 with a small adapter cable – consult Turtle Beach’s website for more details. Since most people will purchase this to use either with their Xbox or with PC, I have included the PC hookup instructions to be your guide:

Future Shop: Turtle Beach Gaming Headset just $29.99 *HOT*

There are plenty of image tutorials on how to connect this headset to other gaming consoles as well.

One of the primary selling features of this headset is the DSS2 surround sound processor, which retails for $79.99 alone on Essentially, the headset and the surround sound processor are cheaper than buying the processor alone.

The headset also features:

  • 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency response
  • In-line amplifier
  • 50mm speakers
  • separate volume controls
  • Positionable microphone

Essentially, you will enjoy the immersive experience of 360-degree surround sound blasting through these speakers while being able to differentiate the sounds from chat windows (etc) and keeping them at a lower level. has many reviews for the headset with most of them being positive. One reviewer concluded his lengthy review saying:

Overall, this headset is amazing. After having high-end headsets, I really think they don’t really compare to this. I paid $70 for this here on Amazon. You really can’t beat the price for this wired headset. If you’re looking for a nice, comfortable headset with great sound; look no further.

Well, if he paid $70 USD for the headset and thought it was an unbeatable price, you really should snap it up for only $30 CA with free shipping.

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada: Game On Sale | Get 20X The Optimum Points On Video Games Today Only (EXPIRED)

Good morning, my fellow deal hunters! Shoppers Drug Mart is currently advertising a cool promotion on their website, and it just might pique your interest. If you pick up any video games tomorrow at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you, you could get 20 times the Shoppers Optimum Points with your purchase (if you spend $50 or more)! If you don’t have a Shoppers Optimum Card, you could easily apply for one at a Shoppers Drug Mart location near you (and it’s free of charge). This can lead to some big savings, especially if you plan to purchase certain video games or consoles for Christmas, including the Microsoft Xbox One, Sony PS4, Nintendo Wii U, or Nintendo 3DS. You can find out just how much you can save by checking out the Shoppers Optimum Points calculator that’s on their website – click here to see how much you could save!

There are many great video games that you can save on during this one-day sale. It will only be valid today (Saturday November 15th), and it can help you get a huge amount of Shoppers Optimum Points that you could use for future purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart (yes, you could even use these optimum points to get more points once they show up in your account).

In fact, you could even spend $299.99 on a Wii U system today and get 20X the Shoppers Optimum Points for your purchase. This would translate to 60,000 Optimum Points, which equals to about $95 of credit that you could use (once it shows up in your account). So you could come back in a few weeks and use that credit on another video game that hasn’t been released yet, like the highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. U (which should retail for $64.99), which means that you’d still have about $30 in Shoppers Optimum Points to use! Now that’s a sweet deal.

This 20x Optimum Points promotion can also apply to other merchandise in the store (with select exclusions, which you could check out here.) Have fun today, Bargainmoosers – I hope you can all find some sweet video games and consoles at Shoppers Drug Mart today!

(Xbox 360) Call Of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition On Final Clearance @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada – Just $30 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

Posted by on November 11, 2014 at 12:15 PM

(Xbox 360) Call Of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition On Final Clearance @ Best Buy & Future Shop Canada   Just $30 (HOT!) (EXPIRED)

Coincidentally with last week’s release of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, both Best Buy and Future Shop now have Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition on final clearance for just $29.99.

Originally released exactly one year ago, on November 5th 2013, Call of Duty: Ghosts Prestige Edition includes the popular game of course, but most notably, it also comes with a 1080p HD tactical camera. Just the camera alone is the main reason why a $30 final clearance price tag is a steal of a deal. Mountable, the camera is water-resistant, shockproof, has a 170-degree wide-angle lens and 3 attachments. With a 4GB memory card, it allows you to film, edit and share videos.

It also comes with a paracord strap (a bracelet), a collectible SteelBook with exclusive artwork, a copy of the game’s soundtrack and a season pass, which includes all of the following:

  • 4 DLC map packs
  • Team Leader digital content pack
  • Unique MP character with special gear & character background

On Amazon, the prestige edition is currently on sale for $81 (reg. $199.99). Since neither Best Buy’s, nor Future Shop’s websites have any reviews, here’s one I found on Amazon:

A couple notes on the gameplay I have enjoyed to date. The movement is exquisitely fluid, this is so very polished. Having played back and forth between BF4 and Ghosts the last few weeks, COD took mantling and made it better. The knee slide is just icing. There are notable differences in weapon behavior between this and the previous versions. No longer is the SMB the ultimate weapon. And snipers cannot quick scope the way they used to. That doesn’t mean a truly good sniper won’t take you out, but it means that the glitch that made quick scoping bread and butter is gone.

The PS3 versions of COD Ghosts Prestige Edition are already sold out online at both Best Buy and Future Shop but you could try reserving it at your nearest store for same day pick-up.

Since both Best Buy and Future Shop ship orders over $25 for free, you’re also sure to get free shipping on it.

(Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Posted by on October 27, 2014 at 1:30 PM

(Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Got an Xbox 360? Then you’re going to want to bust it out for this oldie because it’s a steal of a deal! For a limited time, you can get Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for just $3.74 for Xbox 360.

Oh the memories! Vice City is actually the very first GTA game I ever played and since it right away hooked me, I just had to get San Andreas as well once it came out. Despite being widely criticized for its gangster elements, it is nevertheless a very fun game.

Searching for its original release date, I actually found that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas first came out on October 26th 2004, which definitely explains the price drop as it has been nearly a decade!

If you’re wondering why the heck you should play a decade-old game, the answer it simple: it’s fun, addicting and I’m sure that you’ll forget all about how old it is. Graphically, it may not be as visually impressive as the latest instalment to have been released, GTA V, but at the time of its release, it was actually widely praised for its visuals. Plus, if you’re a GTA fan and have already finished GTA V, then it might be fun to either re-visit the oldies or play them for the very first time if you haven’t already just to get a handle on the story line.

Although there aren’t any in stock at Amazon, Future Shop is selling this version of the popular game for $19.99. There are plenty of immensely positive reviews online but here’s one I took from Future Shop’s site:

What can I say This game is amazing. From gameplay, graphics and story, this game is unbelievable. The offline co-op game will take you a long time if you want to get 100 completion like I did . I’ve put in 94 hours offline alone. lol. This game is addictive.

However, if you’re excited about the hot coffee mod, then you may be disappointed to know that a patch disabled the script that allowed users to access it. If you haven’t heard about the hot coffee mod, a quick search in Google will tell you all about it as it might not be the most appropriate GTA fact to mention here! (Xbox 360) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Just $3.74!

Xbox Live Marketplace Canada: Get 50% To 75% Off Select Xbox 360 Games

This is an intriguing deal that Xbox 360 owners can check out. When you log into the Xbox Live Marketplace, you can now save anywhere from 50% to 75% on a handful of great games! You won’t have to worry about paying shipping either, since you’ll be able to download these games on to your Xbox 360 system and play them soon after your purchase! All I can say to that is the following: whooo!

Here are the games that are included in this enticing Xbox Marketplace sale:  Alice: Madness Returns ($4.99 – was $19.99), Dead Space ($5.09 – was $14.99), Dead Island: Riptide ($9.99 – was $19.99), Dead Space 3 ($4.99 – was $19.99), and Mass Effect ($4.99 – was $19.99).

This sale doesn’t seem like something that’s being promoted too much by Microsoft, so click on the individual game links above to check out each deal. Get them quickly, because they just might go back to regular price soon!

These are some very familiar games – they certainly aren’t any discounted indy games! Mass Effect has had quite the following for a while as well, so it’s quite the popular game. If you’re looking for a way to enjoy some great titles on your Xbox 360 for a cheap price, then you should download these games.

If you were to purchase Mass Effect from Best Buy, it would cost you $19.99. These titles might be older, but they’re still great if you haven’t tried them before. I’ve included a brief review of Mass Effect from a satisfied Amazon customer below:

This review is short but sweet. Get Mass Effect now if : you remotely enjoy RPG’s AND/OR are a science fiction aficionado. Enough said.

These games may not be discounted for very long, so if you want them, get them as soon as you can. I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend!

Game Access Canada: Far Cry 3 (Used) For The Xbox 360 | Was $20 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Posted by on October 25, 2014 at 1:00 PM

Game Access Canada: Far Cry 3 (Used) For The Xbox 360 | Was $20 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Good afternoon, Bargainmoosers! Game Access currently has a good deal on used copies of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 video game system. Originally $19.99, you can now purchase this game for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). That’s a pretty sweet deal! This game was also quite popular when it was originally released, so if you’ve never played it before, this may be a good chance to try it out.

Far Cry 3 is a quality first person shooter for the Xbox 360. It gets rave reviews from both critics and gamers alike, and it currently has a score of 91 on Metacritic – that’s no easy feat! It’s a title that continually gets praised to this day.

So I’d like to take this opportunity to share a story that’s related to this game. Early last year, I decided to randomly pick up some Taco Bell at a shopping mall – it had been a long while since I’d bitten into some delicious salty tacos, and I had a particular craving for Fries Supreme. So Taco Bell was running a promotion where you can get the chance to win a PS3 and some other assorted prizes, and when I removed the coupon from the side of my soft drink, I found out that I won Far Cry 3 for the Playstation 3!

This was a very recent release at the time, and I was surprised that I actually won a decent prize from one of those contests! Unfortunately, reality set in – I didn’t have a PS3 system at the time! I just had an Xbox 360. After I eventually received this game in the mail, I ended up selling it on Kijiji for $20 off the retail price at the time – at least someone else was able to enjoy it, and I was able to afford more tacos and Fries Supreme from Taco Bell!

If you were to buy Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 at Best Buy, it would cost you $19.99 (plus shipping), and it’s currently $17.88 at Amazon (plus shipping). Listed below is a brief review of Far Cry 3 for the Xbox 360 from a satisfied Game Access customer:

The organic nature of the open world of Far Cry 3 is what won me over. The island simply feels alive, from the animals, weather, people and activities to accomplish, it’s a terrific experience. The story is also a great time, but the world is really the draw here.

This deal will expire before midnight, so if you’re looking for an affordable game to try out for the Xbox 360 system, then you should consider getting Far Cry 3. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $50 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Good morning! Today’s deal at Game Access Canada is an enticing one for Walking Dead fans and Xbox 360 owners – you can now get a used copy of The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for the Xbox 360 for just $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). You can’t go wrong for that price, especially when the game normally retails for $49.99!

If you’ve ever wanted to dive into a virtual Walking Dead world, then this is your chance. The publisher behind The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is Activision, who is behind the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games for the PS1 and N64 (remember how awesome they were before they released like 20 versions of the game, people). Activision has actually been around since the Atari 2600 was released, and is also known for their runaway hit, Pitfall!

This would be a great gift for Walking Dead fans. Even if the game may not be the best in the world, it’s always fun for fans to enjoy a video game based on movies or TV shows that they enjoy (unless it’s Beetlejuice for the original Nintendo… that game was just brutally hard). With a plot involving zombies, what could be more fun?

If you were to purchase The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct for the Xbox 360 at Amazon, it would cost you $28.19. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this Walking Dead game that was posted on Metacritic below:

The first person combat is fun, the storytelling is decent at best and the game has a somewhat unique art style to it. Visually it isn’t really all that impressive but it captures the atmosphere of a post-apocalyptic, zombie ridden world quite well and, well it has that ”Walking Dead” feel overall. All in all it’s a great package.

If you love The Walking Dead, then you should consider checking out this game. Happy gaming, Bargainmoosers!

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $30 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Game Access Canada: Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3 For The Xbox 360 (Used) | Was $30 Now $8 (EXPIRED)

Looking for another Call Of Duty game to sink your teeth into? Today’s deal of the day at Game Access is for a used copy of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360, which you can purchase for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). The regular price of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360 is $29.99, so this is a pretty sweet deal! Just click on the link below to learn more about this deal.

Online multiplayer is one of the most popular features in Call Of Duty games. These games are incredibly popular nowadays, and they had their roots on the PC and eventually ended up on consoles like the Playstation 2, Xbox, and Gamecube systems more than a decade ago. It’s crazy to think that there are currently 13 instalments in this familiar series of video games.

Finding an affordable Xbox 360 game isn’t too hard to do nowadays, especially when many retail locations are having some great sales on them on a regular basis. After all, the newer generation consoles like the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Wii U are getting most of the glory nowadays, but gamers still love their PS3 and Xbox 360 systems – especially since the PS4 and Xbox One currently aren’t backwards compatible and won’t play these older games (the Wii U plays original Wii games, thankfully).

This is a pretty great deal! You just can’t go wrong for $7.72 (plus $3 shipping). If you were to purchase Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for the Xbox 360 at Best Buy or Future Shop, it would cost you $29.99. I’ve included a snippet of a review of this game from a satisfied Best Buy customer below:

I could never put this game down. The campaign was amazing and the special ops gave you something to do once the campaign finished. Special ops has waves of troops in each map with different difficulties and extra side missions. Multiplayer offers you even more as you rank up, giving you prestige modes. 

I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving Monday, my fellow Bargainmoosers!

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre-Orders

Best Buy Canada: Free $70 Gift Card With 5 Game Pre Orders

Stock up on games and save with Best Buy’s newest promotion. By pre-ordered five games right now, you will also receive a $70 e-gift card for free. Games for pre-order are available for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, Wii or PC.

Now at first glance I know you might be thinking that pre-ordering five games in one shot is a lot, but if you plan on getting these games anyways once they come out, then you might as well take advantage of this offer now. Plus, the way I see it is that since a typical game costs $70, for five, that comes up to $350 and even though you need to use the $70 gift card on a future purchase, it’s sort of like you’re getting a 20% discount. The only difference is that the savings aren’t instantaneous. Once you take advantage of this promotion, the $70 e-gift card will be sent by e-mail on December 22nd.

Luckily, not all games available for pre-order are $70 either. Just Dance 2015 for Wii and Wii U, for instance, is $39.99.

Costco Canada: 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle – Just $280

Costco Canada: 250GB Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle   Just $280

The Xbox 360 2013 holiday bundle is $50 off at Costco but just wait until you hear about everything that it comes with! Originally priced at $329.99, it’s now on sale for just $279.99.

Now, let me start off by mentioning that if you’re only looking to buy the console by itself, then Walmart is currently offering a $129 deal on the 4GB Xbox 360 and it also comes with a bonus $50 Walmart gift card, but, and I can’t stress this enough, it’s only 4GB.

If you’re looking to get an Xbox 360 with more storage, an extra remote, games, an Xbox LIVE subscription and more, then Costco’s deal is better by a long shot as for just $280, it comes with all of the following:

  • Xbox 360 console with 250GB
  • 2 black wireless remote controllers
  • 3 games: Halo 4, Tomb Raider & Forzia Horizon
  • 1-year subscription to Xbox LIVE Gold + 30 extra days
  • Play & charge kit
  • Battery pack

While you were receive an actual physical copy of Halo 4, the other two games, Tomb Raider and Forza Horizon come in the form of digital downloads, which means that you will more than likely be given unique codes to enter online. Since this Xbox 360 also comes with built-in wi-fi, you will be able to seamlessly subscribe to Xbox LIVE.

Although most Xbox 360 consoles automatically come with a 30-day suscription to Xbox LIVE, the fact that Costco’s deal comes with a full year on top of the usual free month is pretty awesome as an Xbox LIVE memberships has a number of awesome perks like: access to free games, special member discounts from 50% all the way to 75% off select games, etc. Plus, you can even video chat and play games online with friends and family.

Just to give you an idea, I tallied up how much all of these would cost individually if you were to take advantage of Walmart’s current deal with the free $50 gift card. This is what I came up with: $129 console + $70 remote + $40 Halo 4 + $20 Tomb Raider = $260. For the rest, I had to look on Amazon as Walmart didn’t have it: $30 Forza Horizon + $50 Xbox LIVE membership = $80. In total, all of these come up to $340, which is actually more expensive than Costco’s original retail price!

In fact, the Microsoft Store is selling a smaller version of this bundle for more expensive as well. At $300, their Xbox 360 holiday bundle comes with: 250GB Xbox 360 console, 1 wireless remote, Halo 4, Tomb Raider and 1 month of Xbox Live Gold.

Costco also offers free shipping.

Amazon Canada: Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Value Bundle Only $150

Amazon Canada: Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Value Bundle Only $150

Start shopping for Christmas right now with this hot deal! I don’t know how long it will last so don’t wait until you get home to ask your husband. Right now Amazon is offering the Xbox 360 250GB holiday bundle for only $149.99, with a regular price of $299.99.

This deal is hot! I’m going to do a few price comparisons for you to show you how hot it really is. Other stores selling this exact bundle include: Staples for $249.99; Dell for $299.99; sold out at Walmart; $299.99 at Microsoft Store and Newegg has it for $249.99. Other stores have it, but no one can compete with the price it is at The Source. The only exception I found was The Source, but they are sold out online.

What this package includes is the Xbox 360 E console with a 250GB hard drive, built-in wi-fi, the wireless controller, one month of Xbox Live Gold plus the games Halo 4 and Tomb Raider.

As another comparison of price, The Source is selling just the console itself for the exact same price.

While my kids were gifted a WiiU last year and love it, there is also something about Xbox that they love. I think the games are a bit old for them, but that’s ok, because my husband loves these shoot-em-up games and my oldest can play it when he is a little older. This price is really provoking me to get them this as their larger present for Christmas and it is quite the difference from the few hundred that was paid for their video game console last year.

I don’t have to bore you with reviews, as if you are a gamer, you’ll know everything you need to know about Xbox and the included games.

Shipping is going to be free on this item as well.

If it tells you it is sold out or a different price, continue to check back as it seems it goes back and forth on price.
