You would think that the bundle had the actual GOTY in it.

GTA 4.

Will the wireless headset match the color of the Elite console? (Black or red?)

Neat, but I was kinda hoping the 360 elite would be a special color for this package.

Didn't Fallout 3 win?

+ neither of the games bundled are winners or previous winners WTF! This is a fail bundle IMO!

Well i guess since they are both Xbox only games that was prob one of the deciding factors because you might want to pick it up with exclusives

I might get this for a back up console in case my current one breaks with some random Error Code or RROD.

A bit of a pointless bundle if you ask me. Just an elite bundle with two games. Nothing special about that.

Both good games =] But personally Halo 3 multiplayer is addictive but once you stop and think this is crap then your never going to play Halo 3 again like ive done XD

For a new Xbox player its a great deal. If you find this at the store It would be a great deal and I would want to buy it. A 120G Hardrive and Two top games. I bought an Elite for $450 and this is $399 and you get two really good games. Great for someone about to enter the Xbox community.

I'd rather get the red console.. but then you look at it and i've got to say if I was just buying an xbox, i'd go with this one.

Yah this seems liek a good console for the new person to get into. Anyways about what peopel were saying about games they want in it like Cod 4 , GTA 4 The RE5 bundle Fallout 3. Well I think Microsoft was trying to put exclusives in it and games where they would be getting more money

Fable 2 won quite a few GOTY awards actually as did Halo 3 so it does have GOTY games in the bundle.

GTA 4.

You'd also think that they'd include Call Duty 4, but they wanted to put console exclusive games in with the bundle and that's exactly what Fable II and Halo 3 are.

Two of the top games made by MS specifically for the 360.

Tbh, this is the same bundle as the elite just without kung fu panda and indianna jones. If your looking to buy a new xbox or first time buying, get the resident evil elite. They were DEFINATELY NOT Limited time only.

Best Buy had it on their page, as i just checked, it's gone it will probably be back. Amazon also had it and sold out. They said they weren't sure if any more shipments were going to come, but i seen them sell out like 5 times and they keep getting more in stock.

Also, my whole discussion on this is this "new" bundle going to have the "Jasper" motherboard. All they are doing it swapping the shit games for good games. If this is a jasper then it's people's decisions, but i think it will be a falcon.

That's right. I guess some people don't realize that there are tons of different people who give out GOTY awards.

Fable II
-X-play Game of the Year
-Joystiq Game of the Year

Halo 3
-Time Magazine Game of the Year
-G-Phoria Game of the Year
-Box Office Prophets Game of the Year
-Geezer Gamers Game of the Year
-Gametrailers Game of the Year 2007

They should've released this when I didn't have an xbox yet, so I could buy it.

It'd be an excuse to purchase Halo 3:p Which I will not do. Ever. :)

And lol @ claiming GTA IV is GOTY, that game is shit. Don't really like Fallout 3 either.. Like Fable II though.
