Gameplayer are reporting that a new Xbox 360 bundle has started leaking into Aussie retailers which includes Halo 3 and GTA IV.
Now thats a bundle...kinda expensive though...
Its not an official bundle its more like buy a 360 for so so price and get halo 3 and GTA4 free. Its still better than nothing though but it won't receive the same attention as an official bundle with the game art on the box and everything
For gods sakes, stop posting gameplayer.com.au story. This is just getting ridiculous.
ARE they even SERIOUS? People already bought halo3 who ever wanted to buy one. Who might be holding out? Just a GTA bundle with lower price is the way to go. Now MICROSOFT is going to pretend to have shortages of this bundle few days before gta even comes out. I want to see this on store-selfs, then i will believe it.
which then makes it not so bad! and i have to disagree sonarus, a bundle with a free game, is a bundle with a free game! not many people are gonna be bothered by some art work on a "box", that's never gonna see the light of day once the console comes out of it. anyway, more impotartantly, when are crap articles, from this crap aussie-blatantly-anti-microsof t-site gonna stop???? i know it makes the unashemed fanboys that run and contribute to this site feel better, but seriously, they are crap!
If this is true, then MS will be in a good position at the end. Nice counter. But where's the North American Bundle MS? Edit: Lol, at all the Disagrees.
theirs a disagree monster on the loose...they can smell Halo from a mile away.
Paying $500 for a Core Console and two games: Halo 3 and GTAIV is not even close to being worth it. The PS3 + GTAIV is a lot cheaper and Microsoft seriously must be insane if people are that stupid to pay 500 dollars for the cheapest sku you have on the market. By the way should I mention the pro packaged at $679.00? That is just ridiculous.
The bundle is too expensive IMO,should just buy a Ps3 and the game separately.
don't forget that this is an Aussie site, so Aussie prices... which are much more that OS. By comparrison, Harvey Norman is offering an Elite and GTA IV for $698 in Oz, which seems like a better deal really. Surely Halo 3 is like $30 on ebay now.
@ J4son 360 lol...youve taking it so far, its funny now...screw it, ill give you a bubble :)
This guy seriously has somthing wrong with him. What is this like the 5th copycat account you have had? I must be popular, or hated amongst the PS3 community, which is fine by me :)
pimpin aint easy man
this is probably a store deal cause thats a big loss on microsoft if they put those 2 games in a bundle and its too expensive
Don't worry it's Austrailia how much can they sell anyway? They just want to sell enough to be a presence in Austrailia. This is in no way a counter to the PS3 GTA4 bundle because there's more people in California than the entire country of Austrailia.
ya i kno the bundle probably wont sell as much as the ps3 bundle but i cant see microsoft putting these 2 major games in a a bundle, especially with the arcade version. so imo i think this is just a store deal and plus if u look at it gta4 is just 7 days away and if this was in all of australia why havent we have heard of this sooner from many other sources like we have the playstation bundle or heard a confirmation by microsoft ? y wud they bundle it with the arcade version, that has no hard drive, if they are getting DLC bigger than san andreas ? If they were putting a new bundle all over australia i wud see them doing it with the Elite
I find it highly offensive they way you dismiss my entire country and have reported your post as offensive. the 360 already has a retail presence in Australia and this bundle (even the pro) is cheaper than a 40gb ps3 with no bundled games here. Your also crazy if you think bundling the systems best selling game with the systems most anticipated game is a bad idea.
looks like bill gates let go of microsofts leash these past weeks
Halo 3 and GTA IV! Now that is some ownage! I know some mates who would be snatching this up if it comes to other regions. Come on MS! You need to bring this bundle to EU/UK/NA
everyone wants MGS4+GTA4+GT5P GT5P has been no 1 on AU list for the last 3 weeks. halo3 couldnt stay no1 for even 2 weeks How delusional are you? No one wants an x360 anymore in the PAL regions
The two biggest games in history of MANKIND ONLY ON 360 WOW this just might kill the ps3 wow AMAZING LOL J/K.
The dude has trouble fathoming. James Cottee.....not everyone has broadband my friend and not everyone cares about DLC. The game missions will be ample enough for most so the Arcade pack is fine, its cheap and it will PLAY GTA 4 with no problems, NO PROBLEMS. Everything else is just a bonus, sure you have to pay for that DLC but that's your money.
I think he can't fathom it because MS is touting the DLC as THE reason to get it for the 360. If they;re gonna make a bundle with the game, shouldn't they make it for the SKU that can actually download the content? Also, if most people don't care for DLC and don't have broadband, they could very well get the ps3 version. In the end it's all down to preference.
They are doing a Pro pack..... Price, the Arcade pack is the cheapest of the bunch and I for one would only need that. Regardless of which side you barrack for and who has what and who hasn't got what, the Arcade Pack is the cheapest way to play GTA 4, pretty f#$@ing simple.
Geez Amazingly still doesnt beat the Ps3 GTA bundle.. You Get a Ps3 and GTA at no extra cost.. Oh ya Blu Ray.. Why would you buy a 360? haha oh wait im being dead series, You dont get the winning HD format you dont get wifi, besides GOW2 and GTA their 08 line up is a bone yard.. Oh ya you can get GTA4 with the PS3 Bundle free. Oh ya and Ps3 online is Free
Plus it is EU PS3 version will be the only selling version GAME doesnt even advertise the x360 version of GTA4 http://www.game.co.uk PS3 version will outsell the x360 version atleast 3:1 in eu
This bundle blows
