Xbox 360 Gets Modern Warfare 2 Hardware Bundle, Introduces 250GB Hard Drives

BOOM widget 362996Microsoft and Activision have partnered to bundle a $400 "limited edition" Xbox 360 console with two wireless controllers and a copy of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The revelation came tonight during an Activision event meant to let attendees play the game's multiplayer component for the first time.

The consoles will come bundled with a 250GB HDD--a new size for the Xbox 360, the largest yet-- and will also sport a specialized CoD-themed paint job. Pre-orders are apparently already open in the US, with other regions coming later in the week.

As for the game itself, the bundle packs the "standard edition" of Modern Warfare 2.

Modern Warfare 2 hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 10, with these limited edition bundles unsurprisingly hitting the same day. In addition to the new bundle, Xbox 360 will receive the game's first two map packs before any other platform.
