Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console

 
I am in Los Angeles at a Modern Warfare 2 press event where we just announced the Xbox 360 Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console. It is available for pre-order today at U.S. retailers, and in other regions later this week. The package includes the custom designed console, 250 GB hard drive, two wireless controllers and a standard edition of Modern Warfare 2 for US $399.99. 

Edit: You can now Pre-Order the console on Amazon

    Compete for the holiday season? Loads of Wii consoles are going to be sold because of the Wii Fit Balance Board and the New Motion Add-on. PS3’s Eye Pet promotion has not really started – but once it does, the Xbox360 will need ‘the space’ for the DLC Members to continue with ease, not be hassled with what to delete to be able download what to download. Price vs Space on HDD.

    Christmas 2009 is going to be very ‘special’ on all corners I can feel it.

    Another tactic to rip consumers off.

    Enjoy the same console with some new paint.

    I still think the PS3 offers more for $299. 1080p Blu-Ray movies FTW.

    I wish they would just sell the 360.

    $399
    – 59.99 (game)
    – 49.99 (extra controller)
    $289 bucks😉

    That’s cheaper than the Elite 120GB for $399

    Good point Louie. I’ve already got 2 360’s (Premium and Elite) and still can’t play Blu-ray. I may just get a PS3 just so I can play Metal Gear.

    Glad someone agrees! Both KineticOnline and myself agree that the addon would be appreciated. Plus, Microsoft could sell it alone or with…lets say with a non-HDD 360 unit. 😀

    If Microsoft keeps preventing the use of our own HDDs…they still won’t resemble an Acorn that falls to the ground and then grows into a might “RED” oak tree that accepts shipping in El Savadorian HDDs….but it would be nice to have our own HDD choice.

    You dig?

    And no one knows why Acorn is an acorn, and you still might not know. However, you should fight against El Savadorian HDDs and allow for SSDs.

    That’s all.

    Of course they’re going to bloody release a 250GB hard drive separately, just not at this time. We want cheaper hard drives with more storage, Microsoft want to sell smaller hard drives at a higher price.
    Could you imagine how much the 250 would cost if the stubborn bastards wouldn’t drop the 120?

    Also, it really is silly how there isn’t a cheaper Wi-Fi option now. That and removing the HD cables and not making a Blu-Ray addon yet, it’s almost like Microsoft doesn’t actually WANT us to adopt new technology.

    Looks like the transfer kit doesn’t work at all with the 60GB hard drive despite Microsoft’s claim that it does, so I’m pretty sure it will not work with the 250GB hard drive either.
    The included cable can be used to hook the drive up to your computer though, so you might be able to use a third party program to transfer files. Datel has their Xport thing as well. I’m not sure if using that’s against the ToS or not, it really shouldn’t be if Microsoft doesn’t wan tto offer that service themselves.
    On that note, they really should release an option for you to back up your saves in the “cloud”. They have a bunch of stuff they stick the Live name on but don’t bother integrating. For example, they have both Live Mesh and Live Sync for file synchronization (one only works with space on the server, the other only works P2P). Then they have sky drive that provided more storage than Mesh, but doesn’t provide anything for synchronization. Why not combine all of this stuff and then allow you to upload your 360 saves to the “cloud storage” for backup as well? Some saves games for arcade titles are already stored as part of your profile and downloaded when you recover your gamertag already, just expand that capability.

    Not bad, but I would also prefer the ODST version.

    Hummmmm. I’m a huge fan of the Call of Duty saga, but I don’t really like this console. I expected way more. Starting with, why doesn’t it come with a chrome disk tray?

    The 250 Gb HDD is sweet, though. But I’ll stick to my 120 Gb Elite.

    Is this available in the UK? Please don’t say that it is but ONLY through Game. There is simply next to no competition left to go against Game, it really gets my goat.

    I am pretty sure that the 250GB HDD will be available to purchase separately. Oh, and when will this thing be released? Can you get it now and then get the supplier to send the game when it is released. I ask because I am going to buy an Elite next week and would have liked to have shelled out for one of the 250GB ones.

    Still shocked that MS don’t practically give the hard drives away. Most people I know want to fill have a 20GB that is full of stuff and they just won’t pay the crazy price for the 120GB. They want to buy more stuff but the HDD pricing is stopping them (rightly so). Major, can you have a word as the HDD pricing policy is holding you back from making shed loads more on DLC.

    One more thing. How come you carry adverts for compaies that flash 360s, seems a strange association to have on your site.

    Alright, a couple more things. How come on the Xbox.com site for the US there is a search box that allows you to look for a gamertag, yet on my UK site I don’t have this function? You guys are always giving out gamertags in your show but the UK users don’t have the search box. I can get round this by substituting the name of one the names in the address bar, but it seems odd to me.

    Can you also stop EA from making me sign up to one of their bloody forums or website things everytime I wanna play an EA game online.

    Although I thought this 360 could have been a bit more stylish, I have got this on pre-order. This is to hard to pass up with that 250G hard drive involved. Also, I figure my xbox pro will be close to needing replaced when I wear it out with ODST starting next week. Does anyone know if this basically an elite that has been styled for modern warfare2?

    I think Game and Gamestation will be carrying this one and the Forza 3 250GB special editions too. Likely be around £249.99 in my opinion. The Forza 3 bundle is out 23rd Oct, so you can bag yourself a £250GB option early if you cannot wait for the MW2 edition. The wait is killing me.

    I put in a preorder yesterday 5 minutes after reading about this console. I love Call of Duty and like the looks of this console. I also love installing games to my hard drive. I will have that 250 GB filled up within a week. 😉 I already ordered up 2 black batteries for the controllers. Need to be color coordinated. I have the hardened edition on preorder as well. Now I need to decide if I should cancel that or keep and sell the copy of the game that comes with the console. I probably just cancel the hardened version.

    Major:

    My current 120 gig drive is nearly full, all of it from paid DLC. Is it going to be possible to transfer this stuff over to the 250 gig drive? Please let us know. That’s the only holdup I have, on picking this system up. It looks good, I need the space, but I don’t want to wind up losing a bunch of stuff. Some of the DLC I have is no longer on the service, I think.

    Off the top of my head, the single player expansion for Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, that I never got around to playing yet…

    I guess if MS won’t bring this out as a stand alone part at a reasonable price.(Under $150) I guess I’ll have to wait till the magical internet fairy allows me to do so.
