Announcing the Xbox 360 Game Of The Year Bundle

 Xbox 360 Game Of The Year bundle

Starting in May, keep an eye out for the Xbox 360 Game of the Year bundle. This limited edition bundle will contain an Xbox 360 Elite and a copy of the award winning titles Halo 3 and Fable II  for US $ 399. That’s the normal Elite Price plus two games at no additional cost. Check your local retailer for availability.

Update: I have confirmed that this bundle will be available in all regions that Xbox 360 is sold except those in Europe.

    Fable II is such a buggy game! When your game crashes and you would like a patch to fix all the game breaking bugs speak to the tech support on the lionhead forums.. They will kindly reply ” We cannot help you. We are aware the game has lots of bugs but we are not making a patch” Translation: We Don’t care about out customers!

    This sounds like a good deal actually. I want to get fable, and my xbox just got the RRoD, so maybe I’ll pick this up instead of waiting for the repaired one to come in.

    Meh, at that price a PS3 is a better option since (my guess would be) most people who read this blog already own a 360…

    Wow that’s a pretty amazing bundle… good to see a bundle with best-sellers instead of crappy movie license shovelware! But I thought the Elite was getting phased out? Just a rumor I guess? I hope it is and my Elite stays around for good!😀

    Depends on which place gave it game of the year. I’m guessing they are going with G4 as they gave Halo 3 GOTY and Fable 2 GOTY

    if it weren’t for the down economy, I’d pick this up as my primary console and would demote my current console to the living room. awesome deal.

    The “Elite” might be getting phased out, but only because there will be something to replace it…with Rock Band devs making public statements that their intention is to have 5k songs available, and rumors about Sony making a new PS3 hard drive that is in the vicinity of 300GB and BC, I am sure MS has a “new” Elite model that will have some insanely large HDD. 120Gb just isn’t big enough when you factor in music downloads, video purchases, and burning games to disc (avg game takes up 6-7GB). I’d say this GOTY packaging is what everyone thought the RE5 bundle was…old stock re-boxed (Red Elites were brand new…mine had a manufacture date of 2/09), and to look for whatever is new to be announced at E3, and available around the Holiday season, to coincide with Halo 3:ODST and MW2.

    I was surprised when they released the Halo 3 special edition in 2007 without the game bundled in. They really should have bundled the two together. I can also get a RED elite with one game (RE5) for the same price…

    That’s really cool, but doesn’t everyone already own Halo 3?😄

    Looks like I found the bundle I’ve been looking for!

    I plan to get my Xbox 360 very soon, but this sweetens the deal.🙂

    I hope its a Jasper.

    Mass Effect would have been better than Fable 2. Fable 2 has to many bugs and glitches that Lionhead knew and knows about but yet has fixed. Nice bundle might as well trade in the Fable 2 from the bundle and use it as credit towards Mass Effect 2.

    That makes sense, Killer Scuzzy J. But at this point in development, they might as well just sell ONE basic bare-bones console in either white or black with a couple starter games (and special limited-edition colors as usual, maybe bundled with different games). I can understand during the initial launch that the different consoles were available because they had different hardware, which gave you more options to consider before making your 360 purchase. But now they ALL have the SAME hardware in them – even the Arcade system has a wireless controller and HDMI now! So why not just sell the same couple basic consoles, and allow it to be bundled with the HDD of your choice, which would be available at different levels depending on your capacity needs? That way, whenever the need for capacity expansion arises, there’s no need to have to introduce a whole different model. There can just be a new bigger HDD that can added to the same existing console. Unless of course there’s some super-secret hardware upgrade that Microsoft is planning with the 360, but being this far into the developement cycle already, I seriously doubt anything significant is going to happen any more.

    SOLD!

    My Xbox 360 from October 2006 is on the fritz occasionally, and I traded in my copy of Halo 3 for Gears 2(and gave my extra legendary copy to my brother) and my copy of Fable II is the collectors edition that I just can’t bring myself to open due to its rarity now.

    May is gonna be a great month.🙂

    Ouch that sucks for Europe! I can understand the complications with Marketplace content when it comes to other regions, but why for the console itself?
    I also noticed that this bundle now includes two M-rated games, rather than the kid-friendly games previously being bundled with the system. Maybe this is Microsoft’s way of acknowledging the more adult consumer base for the Elite? Who knows, depending on how well this sells, it might even become the regular bundle for the Elite!
