Microsoft are celebrating the 9 year run that the Xbox 360 has been in production. The Xbox 360 is the 2nd generation console within the Microsoft product line and to celebrate, prices are being dropped across the entire range. From the bare bones version with 4GB of memory up to the 500GB special blue edition including a Call of Duty bundle. All prices are being slashed.
This new announcement from Microsoft will come into affect from the 1st of October. However only one store has been given exclusivity to sell the Blue Edition 500GB version besides Microsoft themselves, namely EB Games. The advantage of buying it directly from Microsoft though is that you’ll get it for $20 cheaper. This bundle includes a Blue Edition Xbox 360, blue infused controller, Call of Duty Ghosts, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 and 1 month free access to Xbox Live Gold. If this wasn’t enough, Microsoft have also launched an additional bundle for other stores to offer, which includes; a 250GB console, controller, Halo 4, Tomb Raider, Forza Horizons and Skyrim. I’ve put together a break down below to see where you can get your hands on these bundles, how much value for your money you receive plus whether you can get it cheaper by buying the games and console separately elsewhere.
