Microsoft have decided to offer a slight revamp to the Xbox 360 console by releasing a ‘yang’ to its current ‘yin’ with the ‘Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle’. The pure glossy white coat brings a new level of elegance to the Xbox 360 console and is perfect for those who appreciate a break from the monotony of black electronic devices. The Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle is also a great choice for those who are new to the Xbox brand and who have yet to ‘jump in’.

The Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle is an entry level console package. The console itself only has 4GB of storage space, which is just enough memory to accommodate new players and some game data but does not leave much room for downloadable content. The bundle is accompanied by a special edition matte white Xbox 360 controller and a matching white Kinect sensor, offering a unified look and feel. The Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle also includes ‘Kinect adventures’ and ‘Kinect Sports 1′ to begin the Kinect ‘controller free’ experience, as well as a three month subscription to Xbox LIVE Gold.

The Xbox 360 Special Edition 4GB Kinect Family Bundle will be available in South Africa from the 4th of May 2012 for a suggested retail price of R3599.99. The bundle includes the following:

  • Xbox 360 S exclusive custom white glossy console: The Xbox 360 console is sleek and quiet, with a stylish design that will be the centerpiece of your home entertainment system.
  • Xbox 4GB Storage: The 4GB of storage allows you to save your games and other content available from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
