Microsoft has already made it clear that they want Xbox 360 to be the home of the Call of Duty series. They’ve purchased rights to be the first console to carry all of the Call of Duty DLC until 2012. Secondly, they have just recently announced a number of limited edition Xbox 360 accessories inspired by Modern Warfare 3.
The announcement comes straight out of the Call of Duty XP event in Los Angeles. A limited edition Xbox 360 MW3 bundle, a MW3 custom painted controller, and a wireless bluetooth headset were all revealed. I personally don’t have any need for these items but a huge Modern Warfare fan might be willing to throw a few hundred dollars for these items.
Here’s a more detailed description on these items:
The limited edition console includes a customized console with graphics from the game, along with two custom wireless controllers, a 320GB hard drive, a copy of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3,” as well as custom sounds when the console is turned on. Out on November 8th for $399.00 (U.S ERP)
The Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth provides the ability to chat with friends during multi-player game play or with Bluetooth®-enabled mobile phones, PCs and other devices. Its artwork matches the custom console and includes a charging cradle, ear loop, ear gels, and an Xbox LIVE token for an exclusive download for $69.99 (U.S ERP). Out on October 11th
The Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Wireless Controller allows you to show all your friends your passion for the franchise. The controller includes exclusive artwork and a transforming D-pad that can be rotated to adapt to the user’s game play, as well as an Xbox LIVE token for an exclusive download, all for $59.99 (U.S. ERP) Out on October 11th
The word is these accessories really will be limited so you might want to reserve it now. Personally, I much rather cough up money to get the Limited Edition Star Wars Xbox 360 bundle. Let me know what you think of these items, are they worth it?
