Microsoft UK has announced a Christmas bundle for the Xbox, ending gossip that the games division was planning a festive price cut for its inaugural machine.
Specifically, the bundle will comprise an Xbox console, seminal FPS Halo, Midtown Madness 3 and a two-month subscription to the Xbox Live service.
The price will remain fixed at £139.99
In other news, we can reveal this morning that Sony will remain fixed on its current PS2 price-points, £139 and £149 for the black and silver consoles respectively. However, it has emerged this morning that several bundles are due to be announced in the coming weeks, to ensure the market-leading console edges out Microsoft during the critical part of its lifecycle.
It will be interesting to see how Nintendo and its £79.99 GameCube fares in all of this.
We?ll let you know exactly what?s inside Sony?s bundles as soon as the announcement is made, if not before?
