Microsoft made some changes in its Xbox 360 products. Major Nelson posted an announcement earlier today about a new set of bundles being offered for the Spring season, while one specific bundle has been removed from retailer shelves.

Microsoft’s $99 Xbox 360 bundle with Kinect and Xbox Live Gold has been removed from sales. The bundle was first offered in 2012. Users who purchased the bundle received a deal on Xbox Live Gold. However, according to the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is no longer selling this bundle combination.

Today, via Microsoft’s Major Nelson blog, a new bundle was announced. The value bundle will be available in US game retailers in the Spring for a limited time.

In this bundle, users will receive an Xbox 360 250GB console, a Games on Demand token for ‘Borderlands 2, ‘Forza Horizon’, and 1 month of Xbox Live Gold. As a bonus, gamers will also be able to purchase this Spring bundle with a $50 discount for a limited time in select retailers.

Nelson’s blog also points readers to the official Xbox website for a list of other Xbox 360 bundles, including a 4GB and a 250GB with Kinect. Find more details here.
