$169 package deal includes acclaimed Bungie game, limited-edition green console and controller.
Three days after they dropped the Xbox's price by $30, Microsoft is giving gamers a new reason to purchase its console. Late today, the company unveiled a "limited-edition retail special" which bundles the the award-winning, Bungie-developed shooter Halo with a translucent green Xbox and S-controller for $169.
Besides being $10 cheaper than the $149.99 console and the $29.99 game's normal combined price, the Halo bundle offers an added incentive for gamers to purchase it. Microsoft is only releasing 200,000 of the boxed sets, which are already on sale. "We expect collectors, as well as those who have been waiting for the right time to purchase their Xbox system, to jump at this unique opportunity." said Xbox marketing chief Bill Nielsen.
