Microsoft’s Xbox One console might have been on the market for nearly a year, but that’s not stopping the company from focusing on the Xbox 360. While the Xbox 360 has been available for nearly nine years, Microsoft has created a new blue edition for the holidays. It’s probably one of the best Xbox 360’s we’ve seen, with just color and no decorative images plastered over it.

It’s a special edition and appears to only be available at Walmart in the US, but for $249 you get a blue 500GB Xbox 360 with matching controller, a copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Microsoft also has an identical bundle with a black version of the console available at all retailers for the same $249 price, and a 4GB Kinect bundle along with Kinect Adventures, Kinect Sports, and Forza Horizon for $249 at Target. All of the bundles will be available on September 16th.
