Xbox 360 120GB Elite + 2 Games £189.99 @ Amazon

Elites these days are selling for around £180, which makes this particular bundle all the more attractive. Amazon's starter kit for wannabe Microsoft pwnz0rs  is pretty darn good, in fact we'd say that it's one of the best we've seen in a while. The process is simple: select the console, add a game from List A for free (generally made up of classic console exclusives) and add a game from List B (generally made up of blockbusters from the last six months or so) for just £10. What should come to over £200 gets cut down to £189.99, saving you at least £30 on buying the whole lot separately, if not a whole lot more.

The game selection lists, whilst not terribly expansive, are all killer no filler. You can check them out below:

List A (Free)

  • Forza Motorsport 3
  • Halo 3: ODST
  • Halo 3 - Classics Edition
  • Mass Effect - 2 Disk Special - Classics Edition
  • Gears of War 2 - Game Of The Year Edition
  • Lost Odyssey

List B (£10)

  • Splinter Cell: Conviction
  • Battlefield Bad Company 2
  • Mass Effect 2
  • FIFA 10
  • Bioshock 2
  • Borderlands
  • Wireless Entertainment Pack (Controller, Pure & Lego Batman)

Personally, I'd plump for Forza 3 and Splinter Cell: Conviction (look out for our review on that one tomorrow) simply because that'll be the biggest money saver. You can find Bioshock 2 and Mass Effect 2 for under £30 these days, with most of the titles in List A generally falling under £12 if not lower. Whatever your choice, and you can rest assured, these are all killer titles - even Lost Odyssey has its moments - you find yourself making a fine saving. If you've been holding off on buying a console, then this might just sway you.

I'd still like to see a bundle where they include a wireless dongle and 12 months of XBL though, but unlike Sony's marketing campaign, Microsoft's tagline so often seems to read 'You can't have everything'.
