Amazon is offering some great deals on games this Monday, including a $99 Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor bundled with three games: Kinect Adventures, The GunStringer, and Fruit Ninja Kinect. Originally valued at $149, this Xbox Kinect bundle will save you $50, or 33%. Of course, with shopping online, some may worry about shipping costs.

Kinect Video Games:
- Kinect Sports Season 2 - $29.99 (save $20, 40%)
- Dance Central 2 - $29.99 (save $20, 40%)
Best Buy has done a great job this year keeping up with online retail giant Amazon.com and Walmart in the discount department. That includes Cyber Monday where you can purchase that same Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle for the same price being offered by Amazon. For $99, you can get the Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor bundled with The GunStringer, Kinect Adventures, and Fruit Ninja Kinect.
In a rare case, you can actually purchase two popular Xbox Kinect games from Best Buy cheaper than what Amazon is selling them for.
Kinect Video Games:
- Kinect Sports Season 2 - $24.99 (save $25)
- Dance Central 2 - $24.99 (save $25)
- Sesame Stree: Once Upon a Monster - $29.99 (save $20)
This may not be a "Cyber Monday" deal, but Target is offering an online deal for a 4GB Xbox 360 bundled with a Kinect Sensor and Kinect Adventures for $299.99. They are also offering a $149.99 Xbox Kinect sensor bundled with Kinect Adventures, The GunStringer, and Fruit Ninja Kinect, though this is currently "out of stock" online.
Walmart is taking a unique approach to Cyber Monday, allowing you to customize your Xbox 360 Kinect purchase. When visiting their online store, you can choose from two versions of an Xbox 360 console and Kinect bundle, and then select a game of your choice. Walmart is offering an Xbox 360 Kinect Dance Bundle OR Xbox 360 Kinect Sports Bundle. Prices for these bundles depend on the version of the console selected and the optional purchases you select to include.
For those who currently own an Xbox 360 and are just looking for a Xbox Kinect, you can select the Xbox 360 Kinect Gamer's Choice Bundle. For $165 you get the Kinect Sensor with Kinect Adventures and Child of Eden. In addition to those two titles, you can select a game of your choice.
For those looking to avoid the hassle or confusion of customizing your purchase, Walmart is offering an Xbox 360 250GB Kinect Holiday Value Bundle. For $399, you get the 250GB Xbox 360 console, a Kinect Sensor, Kinect Adventures and Carnival Games.
Our Take: Overall, you can't go wrong with any of these bundles. This year looks to be the year of the Xbox 360 Kinect bundle, with the "big 4" offering great deals for the Xbox Kinect. For cheap games I'd suggest Best Buy. For a cheap Kinect Sensor your best bet is Best Buy or Amazon. But if you want to mold your purchase to your own playstyle, you might want to go with Walmart. The important thing to note is that you can't make a bad purchase with any of these retailers.
