It's two great tastes that taste great together next month, as Microsoft introduces an Xbox 360 Elite with Halo 3 and Fable II bundled together inside.

Arguably two of the console's most defining game experiences come together in the Xbox 360 Game Of The Year Bundle, available in limited quantities beginning next month. You get an Xbox 360 Elite console complete with a copy of Halo 3 and a copy of Fable II, which should cover the bases for anyone who likes to mix their first-person shooting with a little inventory management and character leveling. Best of all, the games add nothing to the price of the console, with the bundle retailing for the normal price of $399.

Not a bad deal for someone eager to see what the Xbox 360 has to offer all in one fell swoop. As for those of you who've already purchased an Elite recently...oops.
