Its official, like posted on Xbox.com official. In case you forgot the two new bundles involve the Premium and Elite systems and they just bundle Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance with both systems for free.
They should be available by the end of this month in case you are an early shopper, then again maybe the beginning of November isn’t early and I am just a slacker. Regardless, you can now get a couple of games that are actually worth having for free with your new system purchase.
I have an Xbox 360 already so my target for the holidays will be a Wii, which is rumored to be getting a new SKU as well, but if you don’t have an Xbox 360 already, I definitely recommend you get one. Especially if you have a Windows based system with some version of the Media Center software, I’d say about half the time I use my 360 its for its media streaming capabilities, except for recently when I have been doing nothing but writing on here and playing Halo 3.
