Xbox 360 Spring Bundle May Be Last Hurrah Before Durango

Microsoft announced a new "Spring Bundle" for its Xbox 360 game console that will be available for a limited time and while supplies last. It replaces the Holiday Bundle, which you can still find online, and could be one of the last major bundles for the 7-year-old console, depending on when the Xbox 720 comes out and how aggressively Microsoft will want to promote its last generation hardware.

First things first -- the Xbox 360 250GB Spring Value Bundle, as it's being called, ships with the latest version of the Xbox 360, a 250GB hard drive, wireless controller, headset, Darksiders II, Batman: Arkham City (via download), and a free month of Xbox Live Gold. It runs $300 and is available on Amazon (or soon will be -- currently shows "Temporarily out of stock").

It doesn't come with a Kinect motion control sensor, which you can purchase separately for about $90. If the bundle doesn't float your boat, or you want to save a few bucks, you can still find the Holiday Value Bundle online for around $273. The only differences between the two are the games -- the Holiday version ships with Forza 4 Essentials Edition and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (via download).

Another option is to wait things out. Microsoft is expected to announce its Xbox 720 console in April, which will likely be available to purchase this holiday shopping season, same as Sony's PlayStation 4.
