Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Value Bundle (Amazon exclusive Bonus Value) (Video Game)
Bought it for my birthday, more or less just for Skyrim. The downloadable token alone makes the deal worth it, I hardly plan on playing Forza considering I have always been a Need for Speed fan above all other racing games, but whatever a free cookie is better than no cookies so i'm not really complaining.
Compatibility issues with Skyrim on the Playstation 3 were really the winning push that compelled me to return once again to the Xbox 360. I would honestly resume upgrading my computer, considering I already own skyrim on Steam, however with the introduction of Windows 8 and the PC gaming community slowly in decline due to piracy, lack of developer support and in general the fact that a lot of games being made today are crappy ports of console games to PC, it makes it extremely unnecessary to have a gaming rig in the first place in the 21st century.
Regardless, considering the individual price for each specific product, the Xbox 360 4GB running at 199.99 fresh out of the box, Forza and Skyrim 34.99 each respectively, the hard drive alone hovering close to 30.00 (not OEM which means no backwards compatibility), this really is the best deal out for the Xbox if you don't plan on doing anything kinect related.
All things considered for the total price of the console before tax and shipping you're saving about 30 bucks. In my case a little less considering Forza is junk to me but who knows, I may turn out to like it after all, we will see.

You bought a new game system for just one game? Seriously?

I also have a 360, but I prefer my gaming pc over the 360. Sure most games are crappy ports, but they look and play better. Windows 8 isn't a gaming os. Its a glorified tablet os. You don't know what your talking about by saying the pc gaming market is declining. Its stronger then ever, and almost every developer has stated that they are going to start developing for pc first and port to consoles.

microsoft alone will dictate when the PC gaming market will cease as Windows 8 is the official new OS. I agree with the reviewer however, I am keeping my clunky XP system in good repair to play real games that aren't lame xbox ports. I don't know how long I can buy parts for a model T either ;)

You people talking about how bad windows 8 is for gaming, your delusional, as far as performance goes you should see a slight BOOST upgrading to windows 8 compared to 7.
