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:

FFXIII Bundle                                      Splinter Cell Conviction Bundle

Color White Black
Games Final Fantasy XIII Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction
Hard drive Xbox 360 250GB Hard Drive
Controllers 2 Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers 2 Xbox 360 Black Wireless Controllers
Headset 1 Xbox 360 Wired Headset 1 Xbox 360 Black Wired Headset
Cables 1 Ethernet cable, 1 Std def Xbox 360 A/V cable


  1. I think it’s bull special bundles get a larger hard drive capacity. My little 20GB hard drive is starting to wear thin, with all of the DLC and XBLA games available.

      That is the best weblog for aynnoe who wants to search out out about this topic. You understand so much its nearly exhausting to argue with you (not that I truly would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply great!

  2. I agree. I have both a 60GB 360 and PS3 and am starting to get worried about the lack of space remaining. :(

    Most people find the Xbox 360 collnorter more comfortable, since the button layout fits more naturally when you use the left analog stick.And you don’t slip using the triggers.I’d say the Xbox collnorter is more comfortable, but those with big hands might find their middle finger to ache, since it will be pressed against the rear side of the triggers (i find that uncomfortable)ps3 is comfortable, but it doesn’t fit naturally into the hand as much
