Australian site OXCGN has details on a rather spiffing-sounding 360 Gears of War bundle set for release down under on June 4.

The limited edition Gears of War bundle will include an Xbox 360 Pro console, both Gears of War 1 & 2 and a shiny red box all for just $449 Australian (€250).

No idea whether EU or US will get it. We’ll check tomorrow.

Press release after the break.

    11 million…

    There is only 21 million people in Australia.

    Un believable.

    Dumbest typo ever.

    I dont even think 1 million 360s have been sold in Australia.

    Let alone enough for 1 in every 2 people.

    OXCGN carries the actual press release from MS Australia, which clearly says 11 million sales worldwide.

    VG247 just sees the words ’11 million’ and ‘Australia’ and, hey ho, another VG247 classic is made. At no point does common sense – “Wait a minute? 11 million sales sounds rather a lot for a country of Australia’s population size, doesn’t it?” -intrude into the jounalistic process here.
