Reportedly Microsoft marketing images showing the new bundles  (Source: Kotaku)
Xbox 360 to come with Forza 2 and Marvel for free this holiday season

Although manufacturing costs of the Xbox 360 will be cheaper than ever after the switch to the 65nm CPU platform codenamed Falcon, Microsoft will likely stick with its current pricing throughout the rest of the year. But that’s not to say that there won’t be some value added to help entice those on the fence to choose Microsoft’s console.

Briefly spotted on Best Buy’s online store, but now removed, were two pages that listed new bundles that added Forza Motorsport 2 and Marvel: Ultimate Alliance to both the Xbox 360 Elite and Xbox 360 Premium SKUs. Both consoles were listed at their current prices, indicating that the two games were an added value package.

Gaming blog Kotaku uncovered marketing images for both the aforementioned bundles mid-August, and the appearance of such bundles in Best Buy nearly confirms their pending existence on the market.

The packaging shown in the images also matches up with previous information provided by Microsoft’s marketing, which added taglines “Go Pro” to the Xbox 360 Premium system while the Xbox 360 Elite displays “Go Big.”

Bundling games with the Xbox 360 is already standard practice in Canada. Best Buy  in Canada is selling Xbox 360 Premium with Forza Motorsport 2 and Amped 3, while Wal-Mart substitutes one winter sport with another by adding in NHL 2K8 with Forza Motorsport 2.

The xbox 360 problems are bullshit. Only an ignorant fool would say that if some other industry has some other problem, it means we can excuse clear-cut design problems in a static design. They designed it defectively and every last one of them should have been pulled from shelves.

This isn't rocket science. Maybe YOU can't get your hardware cooled to a safe level, but professional engineers can in fact do so. Only through greedy budget constraints did this ever happen and a clear message needs to be set. This kind of nonsense has to stop, a product that is so subject to failure within months, let alone the entire viable lifespan of the product, is ridiculous in this day and age.

yeah, truth never was popular.
