1.0 out of 5 stars Skip Xbox and buy a PS3, November 17, 2012
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Xbox 360 4GB with Kinect Holiday Value Bundle (Amazon exclusive Bonus Value) (Video Game)
The Xbox is an okay system. The downfall of the system is the requirement of a monthly fee to access all online features. Multiplayer? Extra, keeping a separate profile for you kids? Extra. Since the kinect signs in a profile by recognition. If you have a download patch for one kids kinect game, and another child wants to play. The system will detect a different child and won't let the game access that paid for content without paying for the family gold upgrade. Xbox will find every extra way to charge you more for everything on the console.

Do yourself a favor, buy a PS3. Virtually every game is available for both and PS3 doesn't charge a penny extra for multiplayer and offers all their online access for no extra charge except for actual content purchases.

I own both systems. The online experience on Xbox is head and shoulders above the PS3 online experience. The money goes to good use. You can usually find 12 Month Xbox 360 Gold Cards for under $40.

AGREED! We own the PS3 and the older version of the Xbox 360 and got the Kinnect last year along with the PS3. The brand new PS3 with 14 awesome games I bought here on Amazon's amazing Black Friday 2011 was barely used for weeks if not months, but the Xbox 360 was CONSTANTLY in use from not just our kids and their friends, but visiting ADULTS thoroughly enjoying the Kinnect PHYSICALITY and FULL INTERACTION that PS3 Move and Wii simply cannot touch.

The reviewer above is probably biased against any NON-FPS game - and hey, shooter games are great, but there is so much MORE potential for gaming and well, this bundle my best friend got last year and my girlfriend is getting this year, gives you that potential and SURPASSES it with integration of the Kinnect controller. True gamers use the Xbox Live way more than the PS3 online community - especially given that XBOX EXCLUSIVELY gives you the one game and community that no one else does... HALO - and there is no better FPS online gaming experience than Halo. Shoot, it is worth owning an Xbox simply for Halo alone, but throw in the Kinnect controller games and all the EXERCISE you get through playing them and you have the ULTIMATE GAMING SYSTEM bar none. We got our Xbox Live card here on Amazon for less than three bucks a month... not even one Starbuck Latte, so don't go off about having to pay for THE best online gaming community on the planet.
BUY THIS BUNDLE - I GUARANTEE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.
