Xbox 360 Elite Modern Warfare 2 bundle
Game developer Infinity Ward tonight ended up confirming Microsoft's plans for a 250GB Xbox 360 Elite by detailing a special bundle for the software team's upcoming shooter. The Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition both includes the added capacity as well as a custom paint scheme for the console, two wireless gamepads and a copy of the game itself. The bundle should already be available for pre-order and will come at $399, a discount compared to buying the individual items separately.
The console should arrive in tandem with the game, on November 10th. Microsoft hasn't confirmed whether it will have any other 250GB versions, though the console maker has gradually been reserving the $399 price point for more and more limited editions, such as the discontinued Resident Evil 5 120GB pack.
