My little sisters birthday is in june and my parents want to buy her Xbox 360 Console with Kinect. I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a good deal on it? How much it usually cost? Is it better to buy the xbox separately from the kinect?? or will I get a better deal if I bought a bundle?? lol I know I asked a lot of questions but I am so not into video games and I need all the help I can get Thanks :) Nina

You can get a used Xbox 360 for a lot less than the new kind. You might be able to find a used Kinect on Craig's list. If it is for your little sister, get the Arcade Xbox. It comes with less hard drive space but is cheaper.

This is a good deal on a Kinect if you get a used x box. http://dealspl.us/Games-Toys_deals/p_new-kinect-motion-sensor-with-kinect-adventures

I agree with jdswiresky. A retail New XBOX 360 + Kinect cost $300. They hardly go on sale but they will since the prices to the Kinect have been dropping lately.

I would recommend getting an XBOX 360 Arcade version + 20GB/60GB Hard driveon Craigslist/eBay for about $100-$120 (make sure its the Jasper version) a non-jasper version has a good chance of getting a RROD (Red Ring Of Death) which essentially means your XBOX is dead. Get the Kinect on the FP as jdswirsky have linked already so its about $220 for a Xbox 360 + Kinect vs a brand new one for $300 + tax.

I say purchase your used XBox 360 and Kinect at GameStop. They have fair used prices, but will back up your purchase for 90 days. They also have a membership program with reward points and this purchase will net you a good amount of points towards discounts on games and merchandise.
