Microsoft will issue a new Xbox 360 bundle in Europe that includes THQ's Homefront
, according to a post on GamerZines
. The package is pegged to offer a 250GB Xbox 360 S console, one wireless controller and, of course, a copy of the game. A price and launch date for the set have yet to be revealed, though it'll likely be around the game's European launch date, March 18.
The news comes in the wake of announcements from Microsoft and THQ that Xbox Live members will get first dibs
DLC, and even a 360-exclusive multiplayer map. This sort of promotion -- the publisher getting its game in the box with the console -- could very well be part of what Microsoft is providing in exchange for the early content access.
We've contacted THQ to get the lowdown on this proposed new bundle. As soon as the intel breaks through the front lines, we'll pass it along.
