Win an Xbox 360 Elite Bundle!

Call the kids, grab a controller, and get some family fun time with an Xbox 360 Elite!

Do you have gamers in your household?

xbox-360-controllerI have one gamer in the making — my eight year old son. He loves all kinds of video games! I am careful to limit his time playing video games and make sure he stays active in sports, playing the piano and hanging out with friends, etc., but I do indulge his passion for gaming too.

So, when we got the chance to test out the new Xbox 360 Elite Bundle, you can imagine the screams of joy and gratitude: “You have the BEST job Mom!!!”

Jackson ConcentratingBut the squeals were quickly replaced by intense concentration as Jackson got down to business putting the Xbox 360 to work. Yes, I have a committed video game tester in my home and the Xbox 360 Elite did not disappoint!

I also have Susan’s husband Rob, a life long gamer, to come and set up the Xbox 360 Elite and enjoy it to the fullest along with Jackson. (Jackson and his Uncle Rob have a deep video game bond, which first started on Rob’s Xbox when Jackson was just two years old. They are just so cute together!)

Now, as disinterested as I am personally in video games, the Xbox 360 Elite can seriously sway me over. The Xbox 360 Elite can provide the whole family (non-gamers too!) with entertainment — sharing pictures, social networking, streaming movies from Netflix and more!

Yes, with Xbox Live, the online gaming and entertainment service for your Xbox 360, you can do so much with your Xbox 360. Movies, Music, Twitter, Facebook, etc., — it is a whole world waiting right in your Xbox 360!

But perhaps what I appreciated most when researching and testing the Xbox 360 is the fantastic resource for parents called where parents can learn how to set parental controls on the Xbox 360 and find tools like The PACT and The Pledge to help families establish healthy boundaries and rules for the technology in their homes.

Get Game Smart is packed with tips and ideas — I highly recommend checking it out.

Win It!

    My hubby and boys would love an Xbox 360, our old version of Xbox was stolen when our house was broken into and never recovered. This would be a neat surprise!

  2. says

    My husband would die!! He is a game addict, but doesn’t have a system. He’s played on the computer all his life, and ours recently went out of date, so he can’t play the newer games.

  3. Margaret Smith says

    Wow! What a prize. Yes, I got two sons and a husband that are gamers. They play mostly on the PC and also hand held game consoles. They’d flip over having an xbox. Thanks so much for this awesome giveaway.

  4. Ann F says

    Ever since my daughter played an XBOX at her nephew’s house, she has been asking for one. Please enter me in the giveaway.

  43. Deanne says

    We don’t have any game systems yet. It would be nice to win one rather than pay for one lol! I think my son would be soooo excited!

  44. says

    My boys have been saving up their $ for a gaming system. Seems everyone we know has a Wii, even my 65 yr old parents got one for themselves this past Christmas!! We’d love to win the XBox! We’ve never had anything like it before!!

  45. Amy B says

    I know my children would just love this gaming system. I didn’t know it could do all the stuff it can. That makes it really nice.

  46. Lori A. says

    Would love to win! We had an XBox many moons ago but our little one broke it…I’m sure the new 360 is way better. :)

  47. Sharon Sherrod says

    My 2 son’s love to play video games and we only have one x-box – so winning a 2nd would be great! Sharon

  48. hj says

    wow this is quite the giveaway. thank you for the chance. we have been avoiding getting a game system but this might be an exception.

  49. Joyce Kraus says

    I have 3 grandchildren. I enjoy their company so much.They have a WII at home so I can never get them to visit anymore. If I had a game like this I would get my grandchildren back.I miss them spending the night.

  50. says

    The XBox is a lot of fun. My step-son used to bring his over, and we’d play it. Now, he’s in another state. So, I’d love to win this one, because I think Hubs and I would really enjoy it together!

  51. Amy says

    Some game usage is great for hand to eye coordination and thumb dexterity. We had an Xbox360 up until I fired my babysitter and she destroyed it for fun. It wasn’t the best moment. It took me a year to save up for that one so I am still saving up for the new one but have begun taking a couple minutes every day trying to win one too. With 7 kids, and a hubby who loves it too, it is definitely a good thing as long as it isn’t allowed to rule one’s life.

  52. Pamela Callahan says

    The boys wanted the X-Box for Christmas but we just couldn’t afford it this year. They would go crazy if we won this!
