I bought this because my Gold subscription was running out and this bundle offered great value as it came with some free arcade games and spare headset and some spending points for xbox live, so in that respect I'd give it full marks for value and I don't regret the purchase at all.
However the camera hasn't been exploited as well as it should have been and I've not found many games that utilise it's capabilities well. The Totem Ball game on Xbox live is very frustrating and there don't even seem to any fun mini-game type compilations like Sony's Eye Toy etc. Maybe this will improve with time but for me the camera remains a wasted opportunity.
Keeping this short and sweet the camera does what I expected. It's quite small, but it didn't need to be big and it has a nice long cable so you can find that optimum place to stand it. Picture quality is pretty good. Video chatting with "Friends" also gives you the opportunity to remove the weird looking ones from your list! (CAUTION : If you are weird looking then you may lose friends by buying this product!). The ability to take pictures of yourself and surroundings and to message your XBL Friends with them can also generate a certain degree of correspondence!
Unfortunately there is not much out there that makes good use of the camera yet. The bragging rights in C&C3:Tiberium Wars and scanning your face onto your character in multiplayer Rainbow Six:Las Vegas were for me the main reasons currently for buying it (after all I'm sure we all want virtual replicas of ourselves at the wrong end of automatic weapons fire). Definitely not disappointed.

Yes i already have a headset... but now me and a friend can both go on live one as a guest... and i have spare on incase one breaks.. and its free!!!!!! Who cares!!!!
The Camera is a great piece of kit!! Easy to use and some decent features, the ability to send picture messages, change your gamercard, have video conversations, live video feed during games like Uno.... but best of all is the face mapping , seen in rainbow six vegas, which is obviously going to become a regular on up and coming games... and it works!! .... i was sceptical... i had an eyetoy for the ps2... and on tony hawks underground face mapping was available using the eyetoy... it was dreadful.... you looked like a gargoyle, or had eyes and mouths in wrong places, and was a complete waste of time!!! But this works... and is so simple... select face map.. take 2 pics (front and side) wait 30 seconds...and there you are, your face on your character and it looks brilliant!!!
And it works on my laptop as a webcam too... no daft cd's to load somthnig that you need to load another thing that you need to get it working... plug in .. select in on you c-drive and there you have it!!! The quality is great and look at the camera itself looks fantastic... i couldn't believe the size when i got it out the box... its tiny, nothing like the HUGE stupid eye toy.... this sits nicely on the top of your xbox
Xbox live is a must.... simple as that..... dont contemplate buying it... dont moan about the price..... cos with this.. your getting it free.. just say your buying a camera and a head set.. and hey, you get some free xbox live.. no worries!!!
Cant reccomend this package enough, as ive said it really is a bargain!! Everything you need to enjoy the most out of your 360!!!
Buy it!!!!! and send silly pictures to your friends!!!
