Beginning with the game's worldwide release on November 10, fans of the franchise can arm themselves with the limited-edition Xbox 360, which will feature a custom black case design inspired by the game, a 250GB hard drive, two wireless controllers, an Xbox 360 headset, and a standard-edition copy of the Modern Warfare 2 game. The announcement comes just as an increasing number of rumors point to Sony readying a 250GB PlayStation 3.

[UPDATE] Microsoft has now confirmed to GameSpot the 250GB hard drive will only be available through the Modern Warfare 2 bundle for the foreseeable future. "We have no plans to release a standalone 250GB Hard Drive at this time," said a rep, who also confirmed the standalone 120GB external drive would remain at its $149.99 suggested retail price.
