We’re already well into the era of Xbox One and PS4, but if you somehow managed to miss out on the previous console generation entirely, GameStop has a new console bundle directly targeted at you. The massive games retailer has announced that it will bundle the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii together, putting a price tag of $160 on the package. Obviously, this is meant to help GameStop clear out its remaining stock of these increasingly obsolete consoles, but it’s not a bad deal for someone looking to pick up these older consoles on the cheap.
The bundle comes with everything you need to get these consoles up and running, from power cables to controllers. In the case of the Xbox 360, you’ll be getting the original model that was introduced way back in 2005, with a 20GB detachable hard drive on the side, while the PS3 included in this bundle is the 160GB slim model. The offer is online only, so don’t expect to be able to walk into a store and leave with all three systems in tow.
For anyone who doesn’t already have these three consoles, it may not be a bad idea to consider picking these up. While they’re all outdated by most standards, they all have a wide range of games to offer, with some truly excellent titles to check out on all three platforms. At the very least, it serves as a good alternative to dropping $300 or more on a single current-gen console, especially when you remember that many games for the 360, PS3, and Wii can be had for next to nothing these days.
Even better is the fact that online communities and support still exist for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Nintendo ditched support for the Wii quite some time ago (and even looks to be gearing up to leave the Wii U behind), but two out of three isn’t bad considering the price of admission. Will any of you be picking up these classic consoles, or have you had your fill of the previous generation?
