RELEASE: Xbox 360 Arcade for $279.99


This is so awesome it’s sick.  The best next generation console on the market for only $279, and it comes with 5 hit Xbox Live Arcade games out of the box:

  • PAC-MAN Championship Edition™
  • UNO®
  • Luxor 2
  • Boom Boom Rocket
  • Feeding Frenzy™

    What’s Pac-Man Championship Edition you ask?  Think of it this way:  What was the problem with the original Pac Man?  PATTERNS.  You could run the same pattern over and over again and keep playing until you flipped the game.  Pac-Mac Championship Edition actually changes the map on you and only certain sections of it have pellets on it that you have to gobble.

    UNO is hands down the best card game on Xbox Live.  Luxor 2 is as addictive as Bejeweled 2 or Tetris.  Boom Boom Rocket is the closest thing to a free Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix that you’re gonna get, and Feeding Frenzy is like getting Freddy Fish free.

    But what’s ever crazier is you get a 256MB memory card and a Wireless Controller FREE.  And the console is HDMI ready.

    What other Next Generation Gaming Console is going to give you:

    1. Halo 3 (Xbox 360 ONLY)
    2. Gears of War (Xbox 360 ONLY)
    3. Guitar Hero 2 (Xbox 360 ONLY)

    6. Virtua Fighter 5 – with ONLINE MULTIPLAYER (Online multiplayer combat is Xbox 360 ONLY; the PS3 version lacks online multiplayer)
    7. Bioshock – from 2K Games, the makers of System Shock (Xbox 360 ONLY)
