Dealhacker: Get A 500GB ‘Special Edition’ Xbox 360 Bundle For $279

Microsoft is slashing the price of its Xbox 360 console range with prices now starting at $179 for the 4GB bare-bones version. There’s also a new 500GB blue console that comes bundled with Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II for $279.

From 1 October Microsoft will be selling Xbox 360s at reduced prices to coincide with its ninth year on sale. Yep, it’s really been nearly a decade since the console first appeared. (If you want to feel really old, the original Xbox came out 15 years ago.)

The flagship product in the revised lineup is the new Xbox 360 Special Edition Blue Bundle which comes with a blue 500GB console, a blue controller, one month access to Xbox Live Gold and the games Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II for $279. It will be available exclusively at EB Games from 7 October.

Below is the full lineup of revised console prices:

Most people reading this probably already own an Xbox 360. Nevertheless, this is a highly affordable way to snap up a backup machine to keep in storage.
