VG247: One of our magic retail sources just popped through a couple of shots of a new 360 bundle, this one featuring a Pro, Halo Wars and Halo 3 in the same pack. See them after the break.
trading on the original games brand.... SAD...
I already have all of this. Good package for those making the jump though.
I wonder what they'll ask for it?
if it was cheap enough because I thought Halo:CE was awesome. otherwise i just dont feel good invensting in something that might break and have to pay to play online. I'd like to see a 360 slimline but i dont know if that would be possible with all the hardware issues.
Just ask my PS3. How ironic is it that the console in my house that's running smoothly is the 360? I say, if you already have a PS3 and just need a 360 for every now and then, maybe an Arcade would be fine choice.
You're forgetting that Microsoft gives you a full year warranty on ANYTHING going wrong and three years on the most common faults. MS backs it's product through it's issues, despite it costing them a BILLION dollars. That should give you confidence.
Yeah MS backs there warranty pretty well but I have a brother being charged a hundred for a 2 ring 360 issue. He only had it for two months last year before he got 3 red rings and now not even 6 months later he get's 2 rings and they want to charge him lol. They need to warranty the thing regardless of it's issue for any problem a customer has. I love my 360 but at the same time could understand anyones fear.
MS only spent that much covering faulty hardware because they had to. They would have been sued for a lot more than that. I'm not saying MS is more evil, it's just that they screwed up their hardware and had to pay for it. If Sony had made faulty hardware and had to cover their losses I wouldn't be saying "Sony back its hardware." Pretty much any company backs their hardware for a year. The 3 year warranty is only there because of the hardware issues. It is true that they'll cover RROD for 3 years (and most things for 1), but other than that you're on your own. I'm not saying he shouldn't buy a 360, but lets not sugar coat anything here.
i wish ms would stop with the halo franchise and look for some new ips.my 360 is dust ridden at the moment and live has been cancelled till i start to see some new ips.every think this year in quality proven ips is either multiplat or on ps3,even the ps3 new ips look promising.its a year of wait i think for my 360.
what the fvck microsoft is thinking??? halo 3 and haloWars have been brought by the 360 fans already... all 4M people combined of them! are they thinking more people will buy this crap?
Sorry but you are more dumber than Homer Simpson.
Sounds like they are desperately trying to shove Halo Wars down people's throats so they can brag about 'massive sales'.
what, you mean like the ps3 + killzone2 bundles?
ech... halo wars is really a fun game.
I hope you don't mean like this: http://www.amazon.com/PlayS... or this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Son...
sony's had more bundles than you can shake a stick at yet you're talking shiii about micro doing a HW's bundle, lmfao try to not to let your jealousy be so obvious. JOY
That was just a terrible comment. Anyhow, I think this may be the norm from now on for the Elite....would be a good idea.
sounds like you are desperately clinging to sony's nut sack.
Must be heavy... Now you get a good RTS and Halo 3, what else could you want...how about throw in 6-months XBL gold and your....well golden.
Stores have been making their own Halo 3 + Wars bundle for a while. I got an elite with these games 2 weeks ago for £220. It had halo 3 and wars as £10 each and I've sold Halo 3 on ebay for £15 (already had it) and they traded my old 20GB 360 in for £65 as part of the deal. So in effect I got an Elite with halo wars for £140 Not too bad.
They have been selling this also in South Africa for a little while now
I think this is actually a pretty good move for microsoft. It will attract those who are wondering what all the Halo hype is about. To bad they'll be disappointed lol. Just kidding guys. I didn't really care for Halo 3 myself but then i never played the first two to get into the story either.
Halo wars is rubbish and halo 3 over rated
good move MS
Well i am an owner of a Xbox 360 Elite (NO RROD problem >NEVER<), Halo 3 and Halo Wars and im happy with it. I own the console. Get it? Does the console owns me? NO I own the console! Did you get that PS3 & Xbox360 fanatics?
Three times, I had my 360 sent to the shop. Each time it was an RROD. Never once did I get charged. The third time was the charm. I got a free console from MS as part of the 3 year warranty with another 3 year warranty tagged onto the new console. My friend's PS3 broke down last week and he has to pay for the repairs himself. He's owned it only one and a half years at the most. I appreciate that MS backs up its console with a decent warranty. Now if Sony could do the same.
