Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle Coming Stateside; Includes Forza 3 and Alan Wake Full Game Download Token

With the holiday season slowly creeping up on us, Microsoft has revealed a new weapon in its battle to rule retail: a new bundle.

The "Xbox 360 Holiday Bundle" includes a 250GB Xbox 360 'S' console, a copy of Turn 10's racer Forza Motorsport 3, and a token to download Remedy's Alan Wake in full.

According to Major Nelson, the new bundle will be "appearing at retailers over the next few weeks" and is priced at $299.99.

Previously, Microsoft revealed two Kinect-focused bundles hitting store shelves along with the motion-sensing controller: a $399.99 bundle that includes a 250GB system, the Kinect sensor, and a packed-in copy of Kinect Adventures; and a 4GB console with the Kinect sensor and the pack-in title for $299.99. Kinect launches in North America on November 4.

Last month, the new holiday bundle was spotted [via Joystiq] for release in other regions; however, Microsoft had not confirmed whether the package would make its way to the United States. Until now, that is.

      i agree, that is a great bundle. Someone is finally thinking at Microsoft. If i didn't already have a 360, i would buy one of these.

      Excellent deal with two really good games. I would do this instantly if I didn't already have a 360 slim.
