Microsoft has announced a limited edition Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 console complete with 250 GB hard drive.
The machine will be made available exclusively through GAME and Gamestation, and boasts a warzone design, two wireless controllers, an Xbox 360 headset and a standard copy of Modern Warfare 2. The machine goes on sale November 10th.
A UK price has yet to be announced although the US edition is set to go on sale for $399, so expect anything up to 300.
It is thrilling to bring the exclusive Modern Warfare 2-inspired Xbox 360 console to Call of Duty fans,” said Microsoft’s director of marketing for Xbox 360 Stephen McGill.
Being able to work so closely with the talented team at Infinity Ward on the design has enabled us to develop a console that will set bragging rights around the world. These fans deserve the biggest Xbox 360 console ever, and we’re delivering with more storage space than ever before and freedom to enjoy all their favourite games and downloadable Game Add-ons, including the first two Modern Warfare 2 maps that will be available first on Xbox Live.”
The machine was revealed during an exclusive preview of the game in Los Angeles last night, where guests also managed to go hands-on with the game over Xbox Live.
It’s the highest compliment to the team and our fans to have a special themed Xbox 360 console,” said Infinity Ward CEO Vince Zampella.
The precision and detail that’s been put into the console captures the intensity and feel of Modern Warfare 2.We can’t wait for our community and fans around the world to see for themselves on Nov. 10.”
This isn’t the first time a Modern Warfare 2 set has been made available exclusively through one retailer. The Prestige Edition, which comes with a pair of Night Vision Goggles, was exclusive to HMV but sold out last month.
GAME’s commercial and supply chain director Tricia Brennan added: "We are delighted to be the UK exclusive retailer for this amazing bundle – it brings together the most anticipated game of the year with a fantastic deal on this limited edition, must-have Xbox 360. This reinforces how committed we are to delivering exciting and exclusive deals to gamers right across the UK."
