    To celebrate the 2012 Summer Olympics hosted by London, Microsoft came up with a new limited edition variant of its Xbox 360 Kinect game console, which dons the Union Jack. Officially, it is called the Xbox 360 Special Edition 4 GB Kinect Celebration Pack. The pack includes an Xbox 360 4 GB console, a Kinect sensor, a wireless controller, and two games: Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports. It also includes a 3-month subscription of Xbox Live Gold. The bundle will be priced at £249.99 (US $405.8).

    The Union Jack isn't exactly the best looking flag either...

    So is this the warship only model then? The flag is only called "Union Jack" when its on a warship. Its called "Union Flag" when hung elsewhere...

    While I think the Union Jack is a sweet flag, that is ugly.

    I think they'd have done better basing the design off of one of team GB uniforms.

    I mean, it doesn't look good on people, but I could see it working on a console.
