[UPDATE] On March 9, Microsoft officially announced the Halo 3: ODST/Forza bundle. GameStop will begin shipping it on Wednesday, March 17. The original Retail Radar story is below.

Gamers in the market for a new Xbox 360 system have a wealth of options on the way. Beyond the already available Xbox 360 Arcade and Xbox 360 Elite options, Microsoft has announced a pair of bundles that will see a 250GB version of the Xbox 360 Elite packed with a long-awaited game launch and two controllers. Next week, the Square Enix role-playing game Final Fantasy XIII will receive the Elite bundle treatment, while Ubisoft's stealth action game Splinter Cell: Conviction will get its own Elite bundle in early April.

Microsoft is apparently not over its bout of bundle fever just yet, as online retailer is listing a new spring 2010 Xbox 360 Elite configuration that will see the system packed in with two of its biggest exclusives from last year: Halo 3: ODST and Forza Motorsport 3. Judging from packaging art, the bundle will include a 120GB hard drive and a single controller. The product page suggests the package will arrive March 9, but Amazon has not started accepting preorders for it, nor is the retailer listing a price.

A Microsoft representative did not return GameSpot's request for confirmation and further details regarding the spring 2010 bundle. For more on the packed-in games, check out GameSpot's reviews of Halo 3: ODST and Forza Motorsport 3.
