Best Buy to sell XBox/HDTV bundles

October 12, 2008 by  

Starting today, Best Buy will begin selling various HDTV/XBox 360 Arcade packages together, where you basically get the XBox 360 for free, more or less. It appears to be a gear-up for the big holiday season to kickstart sales, and it actually sounds pretty good.

The first package: Best Buy will sell the Panasonic 32″ 720p HDTV LCD and the Xbox 360 Arcade package for $699.98. The HDTV normally sells by itself for $699.99. Bundle #2: How about the Panasonic 42″ 720p Plasma HDTV and the same XBox 360 Arcade package for $899.98? The TV normally sells for $899.99 separately.

It appears retailers are getting aggressive very early in the season to lure customers to open their wallets, and this should only be the beginning.
