Microsoft, Activision and Infinity Ward teamed up at a LA press event Tuesday evening to unveil a Limited Edition Xbox 360 console in honor of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The Modern Warfare 2-branded Xbox 360 will come with a 250GB console, two wireless controllers, and a standard edition copy of the game for $400, which is a great deal. But am I the only one who continues to be amused by how Microsoft (and Sony too) just can’t seem to settle on a single SKU and leave well enough alone? Every time they phase out one model and introduce a new one, they always put out another higher-end model. The cycle will never end!

But anywho, back on subject here… The Modern Warfare 2 Xbox 360 is available for pre-order at participating US retailers, such as GameStop, effective immediately, and will be available for pre-order in other global regions later on in the week. The system will ship November 10th alongside the game’s retail launch.

It’s a value-packed bundle with sexy packaging, but the console paint job doesn’t impress me too much — it’s just a black 360 with gray numbers and lettering on it. Check the picks in the gallery to see if does something more for you.
