COPYCAT?: Microsoft “Bundles” 360 with Cheap Arcade Games

October 23, 2007 at 8:05 pm 5 comments

COPYCAT?: It’s no secret that SONY and Nintendo have been bundling their consoles with free games (Motorstorm and Wii Sports), but it’s a secret that the PSP has been bundled with games, memory sticks, and UMD movies since last Fall. And frankly, Microsoft is the latest in the line of copycats of what has been a successful formula. Except, the games are not originals, but “arcade” games like Pac-Man and such. The bundle comes with a 250MB memory card, a wireless controller, an HDMI port, and those five rip-off arcade games. Nonetheless, it’s a good entry price at $280 for those who are simply picking a 360 up this holiday for Halo 3. [Via Engadget]

    I certainly agree with you here though, not only is this copying, but it’s also unoriginal. Pfft, I can’t believe that Microsoft can get so much support just out of Halo, but then again, now it’s done…

    LET’S SEE YOU GET SUPPORT NOW PUKE-OSOFT!!!!!
