For the rest of the day, customers can buy the Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle on Amazon for $299.98. After doing so, Amazon will give these buyers a $100 "promotional credit" that can be used to buy other items sold and shipped by the online retailer.

The Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle comes with Microsoft's console, as well as the company's Kinect motion-gaming peripheral. Owners will also find a copy of Kinect Adventures and a wireless controller in the box.
