I bought this last night.. It's the Skylanders Spyro's adventure starter pack, not the giants:

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Starter Pack - Xbox 360

Funny, everyone was thinking the same thing I was and they're selling the Skylanders stuff that came with the 360, ha. Good deal though cause the system was like $160 after tax and if you sell the Skylanders stuff for even just $40 after shipping you got a brand new sleek white console for like $120...definitely not bad..

I got there shortly after 8pm. No line, no waiting. Picked the games I wanted, picked up everything else, even a 360 skylanders bundle as there was a huge stack. Got out shortly after 9pm. Pretty civilized, not much hassle. Why stand around and wait outside in a huge long line?

So does anybody know for sure if it's the original Skylanders or Giants? My kids want Skylanders Giants - still playing the first on our PS3 - and I want to buy them a Xbox360, a bundle would be nice. If it's the first game I would go with the Kinect $199 bundle and just get Giants on the PS3.

Mr. Moore - that's some interesting info, considering all of the RRD problems 360 have had in the past, and a contributing factor as to why we don't yet own one. Something else I'll have to look into.

The Skylander bundle has the older Trinity motherboard. It is not one of the current Microsoft Holiday bundles and is an older product. Since August 2011 Microsoft has used the Corona motherboard with 20W less power consumption.

Make sure you check your own local ads for the Black Friday prices. I checked out the Black Friday websites when the Walmart ad came out and planned to get the Xbox 360 Skylanders bundle for my son.........until I checked my LOCAL Black Friday ad and saw that my store will be selling it for $210. Definitely not getting it now. Load of poop if you ask me :-(

right now, Hell yes. The skylander pack is about $70.

And i think the white model is used for the holiday bundle this year.

Those are completely valid reasons that I've carefully weighed and managed to resist. So far.

That makes sense, I'm not sure yet if I'm going to dive in. I'm resting comfortably in the middle right now, I could get it for xmas, but I just don't know if there are enough reasons, other than it's new, and shiny.

Both of which are valid reasons.

I NEED a new 360, is the Skylanders going to be the best deal? Is it going to be a white model like in the picture? I'll probably just sell the Skylanders stuff and just keep the system, does anyone know if this is the best BF deal on a new 360?

Nah, after the utter disappointments that were the 3DS launch and the... well, entire lifespan of the Wii, I'm not falling for Nintendo's shenanigans a third time. If it gets some great exclusive games I'll pick one up down the line, but I'm not gonna spend all that money and effort to get something that I'll enjoy for a few days then let sit unused for months while I go back to the PS3 and 360.

Haha, good call, independent oxygen is probably also a smart bet.

Are you getting a Wii U?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 11:08:31 AM PST
I would stop by Home Depot and get one of these instead.

The will match them Emu. The only thing is, as soon as they appear in the lightning deals, they are sold out. No more than 2 seconds.

Edit: I love the frequently bought together suggestions. The one on that page is definitely a good reminder.

I went to Walmart last year out of curiosity and to try and get Dance Central 2. It was one of the worst shopping experiences of my life, and all I did was walk* to where the games are and walk* out, without the game obviously, because there is no order, sanity, or honeybooboo repellent at Walmart on BF.

*float slowly amongst a sea of angry, frustrated, pushy purple people eaters

I'd show up at 8:00PM if you wanted to grab some of those game deals

"Phase 1: Beginning at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving, the best in-store deals are on toys, games, home goods and clothing. These include Xbox 360 4GB with SkyLanders bundle for $149; Nintendo's Wii console for $89; a Crock Pot 6-quart slow cooker and Mr. Coffee programmable 12-cup coffee maker for $9.44 each; DVD and Blu-ray movies for $1.96 to $9.96 each; video games for $10 to $25 each; Barbie, Bratz and Disney Princess dolls for $5 each."

According to CNN Wal-Mart will have the best game deals between 8 and 10 PM.

That Xbox Bundle is tempting. I could use a new Xbox. Hmmmmm

Hopefully Amazizzle comes thru for all its homeboys.
