Which Xbox 360 Package Should You Go For?

August 18, 2009 by  

Prospective Xbox 360 owners are faced with a significant dilemma before purchase : which Xbox 360 package should they choose?

Well, considering that these bundles are each separated by $100 in their respective price tags, the problem becomes a decision that should merit major consideration.
When it comes to price, there is no doubt that the arcade bundle has the advantage at $199. The Xbox 360 Premium comes at $299, while the Select bundle is the most costly at $399.

When it comes to the completeness of the gaming experience, then the Xbox 360 Select is the king. With 120GB drive and HDMI 1.2 wires packaged with the bundle, this selection is loaded. But it doesn't stop there. The Select bundle also offers something that can never be acquired anywhere else: a black console with a black controller. To round it off, the Game of Year copy of the Xbox 360 Select bundle incorporates two big games, both of which are exclusives : Halo 3 and Fable 2. The colonnade bundle incorporates one full game and two Xbox Live colonnade games, but it doesn't provide a drive. A tough drive is necessary in this era, especially since the new Xbox Live Experience has permitted game-players to install games from DVDs to their hard drives.

So, what to buy?


If you are on a limited humble budget, go for the colonnade bundle. If you have money to spare, go for the Select package. But if you are like the rest of us who just want to play the games and luxuriate in the experience that the console can provide, go for the Xbox 360 Premium.
