Microsoft has confirmed it is set to release a new Xbox 360 bundle in Europe, that will allow all those who've never played Halo to catch up on what they've been missing.

The "Best of Halo" bundle will include a 60GB 360 Pro mode, a copy of both Halo 3 and Halo Wars, a wireless controller and 1 month Xbox Live Gold subscription, helping players to explore the online aspects of the game.

The bundle has been scheduled for release on 27 February, however if gamers in the UK and Ireland were hoping to get their hands on it, there'll be out of luck.

Microsoft has only chosen to release the Best of Halo bundle in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Slovakia, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Republic of Hungary, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

It'll hit the shelves for 269 euros (currently about £240).
