    Great system, very stunning console design!

    Posted
    JonathanML

    Alright, I want to say this first... even though I bought this system, I didn't do it cause I'm a Gears fan. Quite the opposite actually, I don't really like Gears at all. But when I saw this system, I thought "Wow, for a game I don't like, the design is beautiful.". Figuring that since I had a first gen console that no longer works and is way out of warranty, I figured I'd sink $400+ on a new system, what could be better? So I pre-ordered it, called to see if they did a midnight release (as I've never attended one), unfortunately they didn't. But I went the release day and got my system. First thing I noticed as that you really get what you see in the pictures, the system is small compared to the originals. The decor is amazing and very shiny. The system is much quieter than the original too, or maybe just my original... as mine use to sound like it was going to explode while it ran, this one is very quite and only whines when you start a game, but that's barely noticeable. I love the built in WiFi... I'm use to having to rearrange my room just so that I can get the cord to reach my router, no longer do I have to worry about that. For that alone I give this system an extra star. The two custom controllers are also very beautiful and the fact that you can turn the d-pad to adjust the lower part of the button so that it goes between a shallow background to a more pronounced d-pad makes it more comfortable and being that there's two controllers (one for me and my girlfriend), it makes it easier to keep track of which one belongs to each other. Another star in my opinion. Now... the only issues I have for this system is this: 1: Although rather trivial and expected, the plastic for both console and controllers feels kind of cheap, but as expected its just like the original and isn't expected to survive 2 story drops, so although I'd have liked to have a more rugged feeling plastic (especially for a console designed on a series that's advertised as such) I am content with its feel. 2: Lastly and probably more importantly, I can't help but feel they copied the sounds from in game on a low quality recorder and placed the sounds in the system. Now, don't get me wrong, I love having a system that sounds uniquely different than any other, however I feel they could have made the sounds a bit more clear and much louder. That's my only major issue, but still its quite trivial. Over all, this system is well worth the price and I am very pleased with my purchase. As I stated before, only a few minor issues that won't bug anyone else, I am just picky. Definitely a must buy for fans.

    Great starting bundle

    Posted
    SamDisaughster

    This product is all worth for the price, it comes with some great things that other consoles don't usually come with such as TWO controllers, 320 GB hard drive and built-in wireless adapter that definitely gives you an advantage. The console and controllers look amazing, the color is really cool and shiny, it is more vivid than it look in the pictures. The game the console comes with is not the special edition game, it's just the regular version so don't expect to get all the extra content that comes with other versions. There are only two bad things that i see on this product, although it comes with two controllers it only has one headset so if you want to take full advantage of the two controllers you might need to buy an extra headset. The other thing is that it only comes with the regular RCA cable, so if you have a good TV you may want to buy an HDMI or a component video cable to take full advantage of the graphics. (the console has an optical audio cable socket if you want to use it for better sound) The console works as perfect as any other Xbox 360 console, I've had no problems in one month of intense daily playing. I definitely recommend buying this console even if you are not a GOW fan because you get too much for the price.

    Should of bought the Xbox 360 sooner

    Hankzilla

    This is actually the first time owning an Xbox 360, what can I say other then should of bought one sooner. The Gears console is awesome, the game is great and was able to learn the controls since I've only owned Ps1,2,and 3 forgot to mention classic Nintendo, I thought it would be hard to get used to the controls but on Gears I caught up pretty fast. The console is nice, though wished it had a matte look instead of glossy but I'm ok with it. I played online for hrs. which I haven't done in years, the game was that much fun and playing with friends on campaign mode was incredible since I've never done it on a gaming console before. Horde,Versus, and Beast game on Gears3 is pretty amazing. Game On everyone.

    You SAVE money

    Okay, we know the console is not out yet, but we also know what we're going to get. You will actually save money by buying this, and here's why. A regular Xbox 360 Slim, 250gb, is $300, $100 less then this console is. This console comes with an extra controller ($50) and a game worth $60 when it is released. That's already $110 value. Not to mention, this console will come with 70 gigabytes of extra storage, and the gears of war designed xbox and controllers. This is a must buy for anyone looking to upgrade their xbox.

    this console is great, gears of war 3 is awesomely epic (haven't played online yet) i love the new features, beast mode and horde mode (upgraded) new guns (sawed-off shotgun and retro) i love how epic added skins to the guns they all look wonderful, i needed an upgrade i had my elite since 08 and thought it was time to upgrade, glad i got the upgrade to, another good thing about this console is the controllers and the consoles' exclusive sounds and its game im almost level 15, if you need an upgrade buy this console now, its well worth the money.

    Awesome graphics and huge memory

    This was for my son for Christmas. The 320 memory is great, but not really worth the extra money. He will not likely ever fill it up. The XBOX itself is really cool looking and makes an awesome sound when powered on. The controllers are cool, too. Unfortunately, MW3 is all he plays!! I never should have gotten the package-deal with the GOW3 game inside. He never plays it! I should have spent the extra money on a Kinect. If I could do it over, I would get a standard XBOX bundle (250MB) with a Kinect and just buy MW3. I wanted the Star Wars bundle, but the release date was pushed back. Microsoft needs to bring down the price already!

    Perfect way to upgrade your console, great value

    WillieMo32

    I bought this as an upgrade from my Elite console. I was running low on HDD space.. Luckily I had a friend who was willing to buy it from me. I had planned on buying the latest gears installment, and with a new console running around 300, this was a no brainer.. Came with built in wireless, 2 custom controllers, headset, and a copy of the game. The individual items would run well north of $500. I'm very impressed with the bundle that has been put together.. Im interested to see what is done with the upcoming MW3 bundle. It wil probably be as much of a great value as this was.

    Just an awsome product with fantastic graphics!!!

    marcus808

    If you are a GOW fan this is the console to buy. It has fantastic graphics on the console and the controllers, the bleed out design is great, it also has the largest HD that MS makes for the xbox- 320GB. Some may think that is a bit costly but if you factor in the larger HD and the graphic enhanced console and controller its a great deal, not to mention the game sounds when you start up the console and when you open and close the disk tray. I am very satisfied with this product.

    this is first xbox and it has been great so far. the graphics are a lot better than i thought they would be. my only disappoint is that the controllers didn't come with rechargeable batteries. one would think that this far into the game microsoft wouldn't cheap out on this. if you want to play online i suggest you pick-up a xbox live gold membership. one think microsoft would at least give you 30 days so you could see what's available.

    Getting ready to pre-order this for my son. Was going to buy a newer xbox to replace his old hand me down from me. But then saw this. The size of the hard drive is great for the price, with 2 controllers and game. Cant Lose! Now if only they would make a new Limited Edition one like this to replace my older Resident Evil Xbox. )

    Great Bundle, but Notable Omissions

    • My Best Buy Premier Silver MemberElite Plus Member

    The system looks great, the controllers are wicked, and Gears of War 3 is incredible. That said, I would have traded the 2nd controller for a specialized wireless headset and/or HDMI cable. Those are the two biggest omissions in my opinion because they are so essential. Sure, you get the wired headset and basic cables but for a bundle that looks so awesome why did they pack it with such basic components? Otherwise, highly recommended!

    Best console ever

    Posted
    COGMaster

    I am a ps3 gamer but when I seen this beautiful gears of war console I immediately sold my ps3 and bought it. The designs on the system and controllers are tight and when you open the disk tray or power on the console it plays a gears sound effect. The system is quiet and the WiFi works great even on a slow internet connection. The controller has a rotating dpad that allows you to recognize which controller you use the most. I love this system I will never go back to ps3.

    Dead quiet system

    Posted
    Bitgod

    I didn't know just how big a difference it would be to go from my older Elite 360 that was a few years old to one of the new slims. My Elite wasn't noise, certainly quieter than my launch 360 that I sold way back, but this slim is dead quiet. And this special edition looks great, and if you're going to buy GoW3, then it makes sense to get it. Only downside is that these revamped controllers with the new D-pad, the D-pads still stink for diagonals.

    X360 Gears System

    Posted
    Sinister2303

    I am an XBOX 360 fan. That being said the value of the pack was amazing. I love the fact that it not only gives you two wireless controllers, but it also gives you two seperate play & charge kits so you have a choice to either use regular AA bateries or the kits. The artwork on the system is very tasteful (particularly if you are a Gears of War fan) It still has the random flaws and "hic-cups" but no more than any slim line 360.

    Jam3s1234

    This console rocks! Not only do you get the biggest hardrive I've seen(320 GB) in an Xbox but you get two wireless controllers a mic the GOW 3 game and extra GOW content. And don't let me forget about the console itself it's totally customized in red and black(looks soo awesome). This is by far the best deal out there for anyone looking for an Xbox and wants an awesome looking console. Get this console before its too late and don't look back.

    Worth the upgrade

    Navi305

    Bought this bundle this past weekend and I'm so happy that I did. I'm a fan of all 3 Gears of War games so getting this bundle was a no brainer. If anyone out there who's in need of an Xbox 360 upgrade, this is the console for you. You will be saving alot of money which is great. For the beginner's, I suggest you play the campaign story mode first before you get on the multi-player matches.

    Beautiful System

    Jerry971

    I've had a few Xbox's in my day, from the original model in 2005 to a slim model last year, but this one is by far my favorite. From the gorgeous color scheme to the authentic gears sounds when you turn the system on and off (unforunately not via the controller) and when you open and close the disc tray. Just a great system if you're a real gears fan like me.

    ...purchase i have made in years. great game also. i recommend it for GOW fans. for those who still have the old xbox, i suggest making an upgrade. this generation is super quiet, wireless everything (i prefer hard wire for better connection), and the best for its price with a 320 GB hard drive. awesome product and awesome game.

    My son loves the system. He said the play on it is better than the other Xbox he had and he is really pleased with it. I on the other hand, am very pleased with the value. I think it's great that he got two controllers and specially designed graphics game. And the hard drive space is awesome as well.
