Xbox 360 Blue Bundle + CoD Ghosts, Black Ops II coming to Walmart next month

bluexbox360While Microsoft is heavily pushing the Xbox One (and Sunset Overdrive) this holiday season, the consolemaker also has two new Xbox 360 bundles to entice the previous generation’s last holdouts.

This year’s Holiday Bundle, priced at $249, will come packaged with Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts. A wireless controller, one month of Xbox Live Gold access, and a 500 GB hard drive will also be included in the box. The Holiday Bundle will be available in stores next week.

If you purchase the Holiday Bundle from Walmart, you’ll be able to score an icy blue Xbox 360 console (with a matching controller) by picking up the appropriately named Special Edition Blue Bundle, which is also priced at $249. The Special Edition Blue Bundle will be released on October 7.

Finally, the 4GB + Kinect Bundle has been revamped to include a wireless controller, one month of Xbox Live Gold access, the Kinect sensor, and three games (Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, and Forza Horizon). The 4GB + Kinect Bundle will be available exclusively through Target beginning next week and it’ll also carry a $249 price tag.

MS @ E3 12: Forza Horizon will blow your mind

Microsoft showed off the latest in the Forza racing franchise, Forza Horizon. It’s ludicrously gorgeous. The cars are beautiful and smooth, the backgrounds are breathtaking, and while it’s not yet showing off the lighting and weather effects of Gran Turismo 5, it was just a quick trailer. Add in some dubstep and any game instantly becomes more appealing, making this trailer one of the best we’ve seen so far.

Forza Horizon will be released on October 23.

Forza Horizon skids onto schedule in Fall 2012

Microsoft has decided to pull an Activision and split the development of the Forza series between two studios. Games carrying the “Forza Motorsport” name will still be racing sims developed by Turn 10. But this Fall’s Forza Horizon will be handled by debut developer Playground Games and is definitely leaning more towards the arcade style of racing:

Forza Horizon is a fast-paced, pick-up-and-play racing game and the newest entry in the Forza Motorsport franchise. Available this Fall, the game is being created in partnership with acclaimed racing development studio Playground Games.

While you may not have heard of Playground Games before, you definitely know them by reputation. The team is made up of developers from Bizarre Creations (creators of the Project Gotham Racing series) and Black Rock (creators of Split/Second).

So it sounds like Forza Horizon is in good hands.
