Microsoft are to launch three new Xbox Live starter kits in the UK on the run-up to Christmas, with confirmation coming from the products being listed for pre-order by online retailer Amazon.

The standard Xbox Live Starter Kit will see a new set of demo games from October 29th, in the form of EA's FIFA 2005, Sega's Outrun 2, and Ubisoft's Rainbow Six 3 along with 12 months subscription to the Xbox Live service, and priced at 39.99.

Two full-game bundles will also be launched, both priced at 69.99 each, with a Halo 2 Xbox Live Starter Kit bundle featuring 12 months subscription going on sale on November 11th, whilst football fans can pick up a similarly featured FIFA 2005 Xbox Live bundle from October 8th.

Earlier this week Microsoft announced that the Crystal Xbox will be re-launched across Europe after it sold so well earlier in 2004, and it's been rumoured that a Crystal Xbox console with Halo 2 and Xbox Live trial offer will also be launched by the company to coincide with the release of Halo 2 on November 11th.
