Microsoft has cooked up new promotions for the Xbox 360, a sign it isn't neglecting the game console in favor of its successor, the Xbox One.

Announced Tuesday by the Xbox Wire staff, the three Spring Value bundles encompass the 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, the 500GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, and the 500GB Xbox 360 console minus the Kinect motion-sensing device. Each bundle comes with two games and a free month of Xbox Live Gold.

The Xbox 360 Spring Bundles will be available in the U.S. at select major retailers in the coming weeks, according to Microsoft. Availability outside of the U.S. will vary by region.

The company has been busy trying to rev up sales for the Xbox One -- which has been in second place behind Sony's PlayStation 4 for most of the past year -- with price discounts, free games and other enticements. But Microsoft still sells the Xbox 360 for customers who don't want to spend the extra cash on the pricier Xbox One.

The Xbox 360 4GB Kinect Spring Value Bundle will come with copies of Kinect Sports Ultimate and Kinect Adventures and will be available in select regions.

The Xbox 360 500GB Kinect Spring Value Bundle will come with copies of Kinect Sports Ultimate and Kinect Adventures and will also be available in select regions. And the Xbox 360 500GB Spring Value Bundle will include a download code for Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and a physical copy of Fable Anniversary. This bundle will be available in most most regions worldwide, including the US, with an estimated price of $250.

The three bundles will be available for a limited time while supplies last, according to Microsoft. The company advises customers interested in any of the bundles to check the Xbox 360 online store or their local Microsoft retail or third-party gaming outlet.
