The reasonably priced £129.99 package will include an Xbox 360 Universal Remote worth £20, and a copy of Peter Jackson’s King King on HD DVD to help kick start your next generation DVD collection.

Full 1080p HDTV support - for both games and films - was re-confirmed by Microsoft, with the promise that titles would natively support the higher resolution with simply a firmware update over Xbox Live being required for the console to deliver the higher spec visuals.
