    The latest in Microsoft's string of exclusive/limited-edition Xbox 360 bundles is one for Forza fans. It includes a standard Xbox 360 250 GB console with a standard wireless controller, which lacks Kinect, but includes a wireless racing wheel (Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel), and of course, a copy of Forza Motorsport 4. The bundle is priced at US $299, which is just a $50 premium over the standard Xbox 360 250 GB.

    I do lots of racing and that wheel sucks! Not a bad price at least.

    Yeah, but when you consider they are only charging your an extra $50, and the game normally goes for $60, the steering wheel is basically free, so who cares if it sucks. Especially when they are marketting this towards people that don't already have an Xbox, and lets face it, if they don't have an Xbox by now they probably aren't looking to spend $100+ on a decent steering wheel.

    would have been better off being a kinect bundle, at least that way you could get the cool head-tracking!

    I might actually get this. I already have an xbox, but I want the new one :) and I want to get Forza 4 and I could get the whole bundle for $235 or cheaper since I work at Microsoft.
