GameStop bundling the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii for $160

GameStop is looking to make bank on its back supply of previous generation consoles and obviously clear out some warehouse space in the process. A bundle now available through the retailers website can land you a PlayStation 3, an Xbox 360, and a Wii for just $160.

The bundle can only be purchased online, and they will come completely refurbished up to GameStop’s standards. The consoles included are the original standard Xbox 360, the white Wii, and the 160GB PlayStation 3 Slim. The bundle also comes with all power chords, controllers, and even an Xbox 360 20GB hard drive.

I’m still getting a lot more usage out of my PlayStation 3 than from my PlayStation 4 these days thanks to the backwards compatibility with PSOne games, something Sony’s recent console still lacks. The PlayStation 3 alone is still worth the buy in, especially considering it alone would cost you $170 through Best Buy.

I can attest that the previous generation consoles are still viable in the modern world, and while the Wii and Xbox 360 might not hold us as well, they are certainly worth a handful of clams if you need a cheap outlet for those games that are not backwards compatible yet. Guardian Heroes and all those GameCube classics, for example.
