Well fear not Gears of War fans (11 million of you, and counting), as Microsoft Australia have just announced a special ‘Gears of War’ bundle to be released on the 4th of June to participating retailers.

The limited edition ‘Gears of War’ bundle will include an Xbox 360 Pro console, accompanied by both Gears of War 1 & 2, in a swanky looking blood red box. For a RRP of $449 AU, it is a great deal for anyone yet to ‘jump in’ to the Xbox  experience.  Though the press release clearly states an Australian release/date, it is highly likely that this promotion will include all other major territories. Full details below

  1. The MW3 bundle is so much better

    [Ed: Usually we trash such things, but we’ll allow it this ‘once’ . . but remember, no trolling or “SHOUTiNG’ on our site or flamebaiting please.]


  2. Agreed AYo – it’s a great deal for the price and new 360 owners, but a limited edition coloured console should be in there considering MS did it for Resident Evil 5, a third-party game.

    I vote for black with the red ‘omen’ Gears of War logo splashed across the side in red to look like blood!


  3. there’s nothing special about this bundle except for the box. they could’ve at least made a limited edition colored console and controller
