More like 1-and-a-half bonus games,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 250GB Holiday Value Bundle (Video Game)
It's a slim X360 with a price cut. Nothing new to add, so here's this bundle's fine print:
1) Forza 4 ESSENTIALS EDITION. It comes with fewer cars than Forza 4 (320 as opposed to 500+ish). Not sure if all the tracks are included.
2) Skyrim is a digital download, so you're s--- out of luck if you were planning on selling the game.
3) It's 1 month of free Xbox LIVE Gold, not 3.
4) Get your own HDMI cable, this box doesn't have one.
5) Get a rechargeable controller battery, this box doesn't have one. AA batteries are so 1997.
Basically, Amazon needs to get the product description right. Other than that, it's nice to finally join the 360 party, especially now that the back catalog's best games can be bought dirt cheap on the used market.

Does Skyrim come preloaded or something? Why can't you sell someone the download code (assuming that is what you are getting)?

Much like last year's Halo Reach, the Skyrim game will be a download code on a card. Also much like Reach it will be easily sold on eBay.

The Forza 4 game is a bunch of bull. Why would they include a dumbed down version of the game?

Yessir, it does. [EDIT: I'm assuming you mean "does it connect to the Internet wirelessly?" It does. You still have to pay $60/year for Xbox Live Gold if you want to play online multiplayer past the trial month.]

Meh. I still ended up with and Xbox and 5 games for the regular price of an Xbox. I'm actually liking Forza and will probably buy the missing content eventually. Proof that bull works on morons?

for controllers - buy a NIKO charger for $19 - it comes with 2 batteries.
if you want to buy a bundle for kids - get one with a kinect sensor, it is a great fun and is good for them as they will move around. dance central is not bad for some adult parties too, after some drinks. :)
