Sweetening the pot for Xbox fans who may be considering stepping up to HD DVD, Amazon has begun offering a new bundle with sales of the 120GB Xbox 360 Elite.
Priced at $599, included in the bundle is the game console itself, the Xbox 360 HD DVD add-on player, and copies of both '300' and 'King Kong' on HD DVD. Add to that the HD DVD camp's ongoing "Five Discs Free" promo, and the deal represents an effective savings of more than $240.
This latest bundle from Amazon follows a similar promotion offered by the online retailer last month, shortly after Sony reduced the price of its 60GB PS3 to $499. That deal included a free PS3 remote, a copy of 'Memento' on Blu-ray, and was combined with the BDA's own "Five Free Discs" promo for over $200 in value.
At press time, there was no word on how long Amazon would be offering this Xbox 360 Elite/HD DVD bundle. (The retailer is no longer offering its earlier PS3/Blu-ray bundle.)
