Unlike Nintendo, which seems to release a new color for their 3DS portable gaming system every few months, Microsoft tends to release actual hardware bundles that are worth a look.  Case in point is their latest: the Xbox 360 250GB Racing Bundle.

In addition to an Xbox 360 console, 250GB hard drive, wireless controller, MS will toss in a Forza 4 and a their wireless racing wheel.  How much you ask?  $299, which ain’t too shabby when you consider the extras.  Actually, by all accounts this is a steal.  Unfortunately, they don’t offer this deal with a 2-year contract, or should we say at a discount, but if need be you can buy any of the aforementioned extras separately.  Just keep in mind that this is a limited edition bundle and Microsoft’s wireless steering wheel is nothing like any of Thrustamaster’s offerings, which provide all sorts of realism, including force feedback and so much more (for more money of course).

The Xbox 360 250GB Racing Bundle will ship June 30th, though you can preorder it today from Amazon if you so care.
