MS Xbox 360 GOTY Bundle
Microsoft today extended the reach of the Xbox 360 line with a new Xbox 360 Games of the Year pack. The console takes the black, 120GB Elite model and includes both Fable II and Halo 3 in the box. It also supplies a full year of Xbox Live Gold membership for playing online, vouchers for free downloads of Halo's Mythic Map Pack and Fable's Knothole Island, and a trial for Netflix movie streaming.
The console's price is unchanged from the $400 for the stock version and continues to use the cooler-running "Jasper" architecture as well as HDMI output. It should be available in the near future and won't displace the existing Arcade or Pro bundles.
