As the holiday season fast approaches, a Microsoft has confirmed a new Xbox 360 package deal.
Best Buy, one of the U.S.’ largest retailers, has started taking pre-orders for the Pro and Elite versions of the console, priced at $350 and $450, respectively, bundled with two games – Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance.
The Pro in particular includes HDMI support for HDTV.
The two included games are widely considered high-quality titles; Forza received a 9.0 to 9.2 composite rating of professional and consumer reviews on Gamespot.com, and Marvel registered in the mid 8s.
For those perhaps uninterested in sports racing or comic-based games, it is not atypical for one type of game bundle offering to be soon followed by another. The de facto price-cut maneuver may also force Sony to, at the least, offer a comparable built-in price reduction via another bundle as well.
