I've put bundle of awesomeness in the title there simply because it would have taken up far too much space to write "Xbox 360 Super Elite Limited Edition Console with 250GB HDD + Final Fantasy XIII + Forza Motorsport 3 + Fable II + Gears Of War 2 + Halo 3: ODST + Extra Wireless Controller - £239.99 @ Play". But there's a lot of awesomeness in this pretty packet from Play, and it comes at a damn good price too.
With FFXIII still retailing at the moment for around £30, Forza 3 hovering around £15 and the other three falling in somewhere between £10-15, not to mention the extra wireless controller worth £20, you're looking at an awful lot of bang for your buck. Add in the massively expanded new hard drive and you're laughing really. It's worth noting that you can pick up a black version of this deal but it swaps out FFXIII for Crackdown and, although the latter is an excellent and thoroughly underrated little game, it's not quite worth as much as Square's shiny RPG.

NB. Do bear in mind that this is a pre-order, and that the item goes on sale on May 7th.
All of the games here are well worth your time. Final Fantasy XIII will positively eat up any spare time you have, as might Fable II. Gears of War II is still one of the best looking games on the console and Halo 3: ODST is a fantastic title hampered only by its short length. As for Forza 3, well I'm not usually a massive fan of 'serious' racing games, but this one has me hooked marrying slick, speedy gameplay with a phenomenal physics engine and some RPG-esque experience mechanics that keep me coming back for more.
If you're looking for a new console, then this deal bears some serious consideration.
