Microsoft has revealed its Xbox 360 holiday bundles. Starting next month, gamers will be able to get a deep blue special edition console from Walmart, which will be joined by a controller with the same dark blue design and light blue edging. This is joined by some other products that will be arriving in time for the holidays.
The beauty found in video games is ever-expanding, bringing fantastic, detailed worlds to our monitors and televisions.

Last week, the Super Smash Bros. version of the Nintendo 3DS XL appeared in a Walmart advertisement, which said it would be available starting September 19 in the US.
