Zavvi, who are known as one of UK's answers to BestBuy, are offering a special promotion on the Xbox 360 that European gamers won't want to pass-up. Zavvi, formerly known as the Virgin Megastore, has bundled a premium Xbox 360, Ubisoft's best-selling Assassin's Creed, the JRPG Lost Odyssey and the 9000-pound gorilla Halo 3 for the low-low price of £210. The bundle can only be found in select stores at this time, so we urge you to look around.
To put the price into perspective, Zavvi sells the premium alone for £200 and the system alone can be snatched up for as a low as £180 on Amazon. For a few extra Pounds anyone interesting in starting their Xbox 360 library off right shouldn't miss this opportunity. Word of advice, stay away from Bomberman: Act Zero ... we made that mistake once.
The lucky folks in Southeast Asia are being treated to a fantastic Xbox 360 bundle for the Lunar New Year (also known as Chinese New Year). The bundle includes an Xbox 360 Pro console, 20GB hard drive, 2 wireless controllers and a copy of the best selling Xbox 360 exclusive, Halo 3. The $669 SGD ($471 USD) bundle is another push from Microsoft to inject life into its flagging Asian market. Alan Chou, regional marketing manager for Microsoft's Southeast Asia division, called the bundle, "an excellent opportunity for friends and family to connect over the Chinese New Year and to enjoy Halo 3 on the world's most popular next-generation gaming platform." While we agree the bundle is a fantastic offer, it would be nice if a region that actually cared about the Xbox was given the same treatment.
