Halo 2 and 12 months on Live for 60

A perfect excuse to go online if you haven't already.

As if you needed more incentive to buy Halo 2, Microsoft has just announced a new limited edition Xbox Live bundle featuring a copy of the game, a headset for voice comms and twelve months subscription to the broadband-only gaming service.

The Halo 2 Xbox Live Starter Kit (is that the snappiest title they could come up with?) will be available on the same day as the game itself - November 11th in the UK and most of Europe - and will retail for 59.99, which is around 20 less than you'd expect to pay for the individual bits.

Xbox related person Richard Teversham reckons it's a fabbo deal. "Halo 2 is the most highly expected game this Christmas and this offer gives all gamers a great way to experience the best game on-line on Xbox Live," he says. "It is a fantastic offer for gamers throughout Europe - the most talked-about Xbox game of 2004 and the best gaming experience available at the best value."
