According to Ars Technica, via an underground source, Microsoft is planning to announce two new Xbox 360 bundle packs by midnight tonight. The two bundles in question are set to release alongside both Splinter Cell: Conviction and Final Fantasy XIII, setting their street dates for March 9th and April 13th, respectively.
These two bundles will apparently be similar in nature to the Modern Warfare 2 bundle released earlier in the fall, in that they will come packed with a sizable 250 gig hard drive, as well as two wireless controllers, color coordinated with the console. Since the Splinter Cell console will be black and the FFXIII console white, the controllers included will follow suit.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a second 360 for a while now (it’s always best to have a backup when you’re a games journalist), and both of these bundles are pretty tempting. However, they’re also both going to cost $400. So the question becomes: are they worth the money? Decide for yourself. Here’s a look at what exactly both bundles offer:
