Call of Duty Black Ops 2 Xbox 360 Bundle Announced: Halo bundle vs. COD bundle

OXCGN:

"Either way, Microsoft wins. Today Microsoft announced that one of the year’s most hotly anticipated games, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, will be bundled with an Xbox 360 console.

Available from November 13th 2012, the Call of Duty Black Ops II bundle includes a 250GB console, controller and the game."

Halo one will still probably end up being better value. I don't see the need for two LE consoles near Xmas, but I suppose they're a nifty idea and there are weird collectors who 'invest' in them.

Is there such thing as too much choice :P ?

BadCircuit4301d ago

They don't say if it is going to look different, but the Modern Warfare 3 one last year did.

BadCircuit4300d ago

It's a normal console. That's too bad.

I wonder if Sony is going to do another God of War bundle?

I really would like to see some more Limited Edition themed consoles rather than plain bundles. Beyond Halo or COD.

The Halo one seems way better value at this stage.

DeusExer4300d ago

I don't see the point of these limited edition consoles so far in the lifespan of the current gen.

I understand about capitalising on marketing and popularity, but hoping someone who's never bought a 360 will buy one, then buy the next gen console within 1-2 years is a bit silly.

rbailey4300d ago

Very good point.

And besides you already know Microsoft will def have an Xbox 720 Halo 5 Bundle right around fall of 2014.

Dread4300d ago

people still buy the playstation 2.

gaminoz4300d ago

There are always collector's who need to have them. Mind you I don't understand bundles with normal consoles instead of having a Limited Edition with them!

Xbox $70 billion bet paid out

Guess that's what happens when there's no good new games to play...

Well regardless of exclusives, or whatever else there is to play on Xbox or ps, CoD has has still been the top selling game on ps platform since forever also.....so no surprise that the most popular game franchise on any console could easily have a revival due to servers coming back online...this is just credit to xbox backwards compatibility & thats good thing for Xbox gamers.
