PGR3 Bundle in UK

Looking to increase their footing in Europe, and also offering gamers incentives to buy their console, Microsoft announced that the Premium Xbox 360 bundle in the region will now also include a copy of Project Gotham Racing 3 and an extra wireless controller. The package retails for £300 and is now available.

This bundle wasn’t announced for any other territories.

Xbox 360 Gets Classics

Now that the console has been out for some time, Microsoft announced that it will soon be launching a Classics range for the Xbox 360, effectively shaving off half the price.

In North America, gamers can look forward to Perfect Dark Zero, Project Gotham Racing 3, Kameo: Elements of Power and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. These games will be rebranded to the new line on October 15, and will retail for $30.

Europeans can get Perfect Dark Zero, Kameo: Elements of Power, Condemned: Criminal Origins and King Kong for a wallet-friendly price of £25 starting October 13.

A second wave of Classics titles are expected to arrive early next year. However, as seen above, titles will vary by region, with different sets of Classics in each region.

PGR3 Photo Competition

The guys over at Bizarre Creations are hosting a Photo competition that will let Project Gotham Racing 3 compete for great prizes including a limited edition PGR3 faceplate, a Bizarre Creations t-shirt and a professionally framed print of the winning photo signed by the team.

All one has to do is go into the game’s new Photo Mode and take pics within the game. There are four categories – Best Car, Best City, Speed and Style – all focusing on the major points of the game. The last date for entry is August 31.
