Microsoft Corp. and Activision Publishing, Inc. announced yesterday that November 10th, 2009 will mark the worldwide release of the Modern Warfare 2 Limited Edition Console. The special themed Xbox 360 console designed by Infinity Ward will ship with a 250GB Hard Drive, two Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers, as well as an Xbox 360 Headset and a Standard Edition copy of Modern Warfare 2 for an estimated retail price of $399 (USD).
Not mentioned in the press release, but stated by Major Nelson during his InsideXBOX video, is that the 250GB HD will not be sold separately so this will be the only way to get it.
It's a very slick looking console in matte black and light-grey graphics, giving the impression of a piece of heavy duty military hardware. Of the unique design, Albert Penello, senior director of global marketing for Xbox 360, says “It is thrilling to bring the exclusive Modern Warfare 2-inspired Xbox 360 console to Call of Duty fans. Being able to work so closely with the talented team at Infinity Ward on the design has enabled us to develop a console that will set bragging rights around the world.” Vince Zampella, CEO of Infinity Ward adds “The precision and detail that’s been put into the console captures the intensity and feel of Modern Warfare 2. We can’t wait for our community and fans around the world to see for themselves on November 10.”
Package available to Europe, the Middle East (UAE, Saudi Arabia), UK, US, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Chile, Australia, and New Zealand.
