Xbox 360 Best of Halo Ed

Microsoft on Friday hoped to jumpstart Xbox 360 sales in Europe with a special edition console pack timed for the release of Halo Wars. The Best of Halo edition will include a stock 60GB Pro console but also a copy of Halo Wars as well as Halo 3, letting gamers interested in the newer real-time strategy game also improve their knowledge of the game's history with last year's title. It also gives buyers a month's worth of Xbox Live Gold to try either game in multiplayer as an incentive to subscribe later.

The tie-in will offer a slight discount on buying the console and games separately, and should sell for about 269 ($347) versus the 239 ($308) for the usual system. Microsoft plans to launch the Best of Halo pack alongside Halo Wars on February 27th across most of Europe but will unusually omit Germany and the UK; the reasons are unknown, though censorship rules may affect the German release.

    Meh.

    I just want to see a 360 with the new-and-improved "no more red ring" motherboard.

    Still...

    How must it feel to be German? To see everyone else getting these awesome games intact while you get treated like a second-class citizen because of something that happened, what, 60 years ago? Can the guilt, ladies.
