Xbox Brings Best of Halo to Europe
Posted by XanTium | January 29 19:12 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From the Microsoft press release:


Xbox today announced a new retail offer for Europe only that brings the best of Halo together in one great-value package. Available from 27 February, the "Best of Halo" bundle contains "Halo Wars", the latest in the Halo franchise which redefines the real-time strategy (RTS) genre within the Halo universe; the pop culture phenomenon that is "Halo 3"; and an Xbox 360 Pro video game system plus wireless controller, all for an estimated retail price of €269.

The "Halo" franchise has become a global phenomenon, with Halo 3 garnering more than $300 million in world-wide sales in its first week of release. The critically acclaimed Xbox 360 exclusive (which racked up an impressive number of perfect review scores in leading games journals across Europe), set new records as the fastest-selling video game ever when it launched in 2007, and the franchise is one of the most successful entertainment properties in history.

The bundle will be available for a limited time in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Slovakia, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Republic of Hungary, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Yeah I couldn't see UK listed either, typical. Still im quite happy with my Halo 3 console purchased when Halo 3 first came out not some pro console bundled with a game!!!

That is pretty harsh, I am sure if they could, they would float their island over to North America.

Slightly off topic but does anybody want to see HCE and H2 redone with the H3 engine? Kinda like Half Life: Source?

I think it would be pretty sweet, although I'm not sure what should be the same and what should be updated. I would be pissed Han didn't shoot first. With the pistol.
