Says Vince Zampella, CEO of Infinity Ward:
"It's the highest compliment to the team and our fans to have a special themed Xbox 360 console...The precision and detail that's been put into the console captures the intensity and feel of 'Modern Warfare 2.' We can't wait for our community and fans around the world to see for themselves on Nov. 10Indeed, as the newly-minted Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 console will ship with a 250GB Hard Drive, two Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers, as well as an Xbox 360 Headset and a Standard Edition copy of "Modern Warfare 2" for $399.99.
A few multiplayer details are also being revealed. What we have so far is that 4 kills nets you a care package (an ammo and health drop via heli), 5 kills and you receive the option to use a predator missile, 7 kills enables the attack helicopter, etc. Also new to the series is ‘Tactical Insertion Equipment’ which allows you to place a mark where you will respawn. Word has also been given on some new perks including Scavenger (think looting but in an online FPS), Hardline (1 less kill is required for kill streak rewards), and Copycat (the ability to steal a class).
Neither Infinity Ward nor Microsoft has said when the console should reach stores. Microsoft also hasn't confirmed whether it will have any other 250GB versions, though the console maker has gradually been reserving the $399 price point for more and more limited editions, such as the discontinued Resident Evil 5 120GB pack.
