Microsoft to have high-end 250GB Kinect bundle too
Microsoft Australia on Friday gave away the company's plans for a higher-end Kinect bundle. Side-by-side with the Xbox 360 Arcade bundle, the packaging in the country shows a reference to a bundle that combines the high-end 250GB Xbox with the motion controller. The console is the same as the stand-alone 250GB edition and has the wireless controller and headset as well as the glossy black finish.
Joystiq hasn't yet been given pricing and a ship date for the bundle after contacting Microsoft for a response, but the 250GB model's appearance on the Arcade box strongly suggests it should be ready simultaneous with or shortly after the November 4 Kinect launch. Microsoft asks a $100 premium for the Arcade bundle in the US, and by extension a 250GB bundle would cost $399.
