250gb xbox 360 packshotThat 250GB Xbox 360 console announced earlier this morning at a Modern Warfare 2 press conference in the US will be available in Australia, Microsoft just confirmed.

The crucial details are:

* It’s out on November 10.

* It’s priced at $599 RRP.

* It’s black with Modern Warfare 2 on it.

* It comes with a 250GB hard drive, two black wireless controllers, a black wired headset, and a copy of Modern Warfare 2.

So how does that value stack up? Adding together the RRPs of the Arcade console ($299), 2nd controller ($80), headset ($30) and game ($120), you’re already at approximately $530. So you’re getting the 250GB hard drive for about $70. Plus whatever value you attribute to the Modern Warfare 2-ness of the whole affair.

Pre-orders apparently start today at participating retailers. Who’s putting their money down?
