Another Day, Another Bundle

There are a few definite truths within the world: one being that the Canadians are gods of hockey and another being that Microsoft really enjoys their bundle packages. If you are like me and are looking to buy your third (yes I said third) Xbox 360, chances are you are looking for the most bang for your buck as well as the reliability of your system's functionality. Alternatively, are you perhaps looking to break your Xbox 360's hymen? It seems that both of us are in luck; Amazon recently added a listing for an Xbox 360 Elite Spring 2010 bundle, which includes Halo 3: ODST, Forza Motorsport 3 and a 120GB hard drive for just $299.99.

According to the listing, this bundle will go on sale next Tuesday, March 9 - the same day the $399 Final Fantasy XIII bundle hits Amazon's virtual store shelves. A few questions come to mind about the Halo 3: ODST and Forza package though. As we know Halo: Reach is in the progress of beta with jetpack and all. One can gain access to said beta if you purchase a new copy of Halo 3: ODST so I am curious if you still receive access to beta if you decide to take advantage of this newest bundle, or will you be penalized for pinching your pennies?

Microsoft is basically coming our with a bundle package for every single one of the "big" releases this year! Will Sony catch on to this trend or even Wii? Or will Microsoft be the only one to show us their packages?

{UPDATE} Since this posting, Amazon has removed the product from their webpage showing only a 404 error now.
