400$ is fine for me, but the 2000$ bundles.... that is just simply retarded.

I have no problem paying for the premium bundle. I do find the $1000+ " super-dooper-shit-in-your-pants" bundles that retailers make to be a little extreme though.

I'm gonna take mine from the weakest kid on the playground. So, I hope they get the million dollar bundle. I hate having to upgrade shit I took. I'm kidding, I only weigh 90 pounds (soaking wet, wearing your mother's combat boots). I'm just gonna wait it out a little. Unless my compulsive buying habits throw me in the mix at the quadrillion dollar price point.

I think most people are having a hard time understanding this poll. Its not about the price of the xbox360, its the fact that you HAVE to by like 2 games and 2 acc with it. I was pissed when I went into EB games to verify my order this friday. I had the premium package with another wireless controller and ghost recon 3 with it and they said that I need to fork out more dough for another game and accesory. Now the bill is up to 620 bucks. When I put my 360 on reseave when they first started to do it they never once mentioned that I would have to buy a bundle to get it. Even 2 weeks ago when I put the controller and GR3 they never mentioned that to me. What I though was funny was the excuss they gave me for having to buy more. They said it was to prevent me from selling it on ebay. How the h3ll is buying more sh!t for it suppost to stop someone from selling it on ebay. It just means they sell it for more. Besides why do they care if the person sells it on ebay or not. They got there money non the less. Im not selling mine but i dont like being forced to buy more stuff then I wanted to.

Yes, the bundles have been embarrassing - but expected. It does increase the hype and gain more attention, which is necessary for MS to have a chance against Sony.

However, I don't plan on buying an Xbox 360 until it can be modified or unlocked to do more than just play next-gen games and DVD movies. I am absolutely satisfied with my several xbox's used as home theater pcs throughout my home. And of course, my stock xbox for Halo 2 gaming. Now the release of Halo 3 may entice me to get a 360...

The core bundle is essentially a very smart move on MS's part. Anyone in the know-how has already reserved the Premium bundle. The core bundle is going to be the one for the holiday that's left for preordering at the video game stores, and the parents are going to figure the kids will bitch if they don't get it, so they dish out an extra 300 or so on extra stuff to suit the half-assed package.

I find these crazy bundles great. Sometimes find myself dreaming of owning a crazy package, but to be honest, I dont have the funds, nor the stupidness to go and buy one. Who wants 20+ games that you will never play? It makes no sense. I'm gonna do my best to raise the funds for a Premium Package by Dec 2nd, along with a couple of games, but you wont find me crying if I dont get one. I'm looking forward to the impressive graphics and improved AI that should come with this generation and if you ask me you get a hell of a deal for what you buy. The 360 itself, 3 x 3.2Ghz processors? I mean damn, you wont find that in any computer for the same price will you?

I think M$ has done well this time, the price is good, the hype is good and I'm looking forward to picking up one of those sexy silver machines as soon as I can.

I realize that m$ is losing money on selling these consoles, but $400+(premium bundle w/o extra controllers) is rediculous. I'll be waiting until prices come down to at least $300, or homebrews/cracks break it. MS already runs the world with wxp/2k/whatever else--I don't need to line old Bill's pockets with extra $$. After all, he makes a killing on games, and his company was founded on stealing Steve Jobs' ideas.

Don't get me wrong, I love XB, and the theory of what xb360 will be, but spending damn near $1000(gamestop bundles) on a game system and games is stupid--after all, I have a modded xb!!! Remember the hype, and slight let down of halo 2??? We don't even know for sure whether or not the machine will be bottlenecked by not having hd-dvd.

Just my $0.02. Take it easy!

My Xbox can also play all region dvds without the remote and the dongle.

Why buy a 360 for 300 that you'd have to buy a remote for to watch DVDs? Fuck that!

I think the huge bundles are just crazy... 400 is almost too much for me, but I'm going to get it anyway.
