Rumor: Yet Another Xbox 360 Elite Bundle on the Way

on September 23, 2009 1:23 AM

For the second year in a row, it seems that Microsoft is making yet another big push in the way of hardware bundles for the holidays. Fresh off the heals of the announcements of both Modern Warfare 2 and Halo bundles, it seems there’s still one more “value package” on the way. According to a “very reliable” Xbox inside source from Ars Technica, ┬áthe same one who broke the news of the same type of holiday bundle a year ago (the Kung Fu Panda, Lego Indiana Jones value package), is saying this year’s family friendly bundle will include Lego: Batman and Pure. Obviously, now that the PRO model has been retired in favor of the Elite, the biggest difference between all of these (besides the 250bg HDD of the MW2 bundle) is the price, just like a year ago I think it’s safe to say this one will retail for the same price as the current standalone 360 Elite ($299). It also helps explain as to why the elite suddenly has a $50 dollar price cut (rebate)! Either way seems like a sweet deal, if your not into Modern Warfare or the Halo series this is bundle for you!
