Are you seeing a pattern yet? After an early reveal,
Microsoft has officially announced
a 250GB Xbox 360 bundle in the UK and South Africa
– including Forza Motorsport 3
(standard edition), two wireless controllers, and a headset – all for price of £249.99 or R4,999 (that's $413 and $680 earth bucks, respectively). The bundle will be available on October 23, alongside the game.
Like the recently announced Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 bundle
, this Forza 3
" bundle includes the not-available-separately 250GB hard drive
, lending credence to the theory that Microsoft will only be including the beefier drive in bundle form. Unlike the Modern Warfare 2
bundle, we don't expect the Forza
Xbox to be Forza
Interestingly, not all bundles will include this 250GB option: take the similarly European 120GB Halo 3: ODST bundle
which swaps the 250GB upgrade for a copy of Halo 3
. What's still not clear is if any of these foreign bundles will make their way to North America or if the Modern Warfare 2
bundle gets the 250GB drive all to itself.
