Christmas came early today for UK gamers when the UK’s high-speed broadband specialist, Bulldog (www.bulldogdsl.com), launched the Bulldog Xbox Live! Wireless Package - the only bundle to include a fast and secure ADSL wireless broadband connection pack with an Xbox console. The wireless bundle deal also includes one year’s subscription to Xbox Live! and two free games – including the very-popular Halo and the Xbox Live! enabled Mid-Town Madness 3 – and costs £329.99 (Inc. VAT), with a non-wireless bundle available for £229.99 (Inc. VAT).

Through teaming Bulldog’s bundle offers with any of Bulldog’s ultra fast broadband services (512kbps to 6 Mbps), users can now take advantage of the ultimate seamless gaming experience with both the outstanding ’ping’ and response rates that real gaming enthusiasts demand.

"By working with Xbox, we are helping create the ultimate online experience with a high-speed ’always-on’ Internet connection that makes multi-player wireless online gaming a reality. By connecting the Xbox wirelessly to the fast speed Internet, players can challenge friends and opponents online across the globe without the delays common with dial up connections or the restrictions of being wired to the phone jack," comments Richard Greco, CEO of Bulldog Communications. "According to Screen Digest, there are 2.9 million online gamers in Europe and the US – a massive growth of over 170% from the previous year. Bulldog has always seen its high-speed value for money products playing an integral part in that experience for UK gamers."

The Bulldog Xbox Live! Wireless Package includes:

An Xbox Console

An Xbox Communicator (including headset and microphone device)

A 12 month subscription to Xbox Live! (including 3 demo games)

An Xbox Live Starter disk

Two Xbox live-enabled games (Halo and Mid-Town Madness 3)

A wireless Netgear DG834G 54 Mbps Router (including microfilter)

A wireless adapter (choose one from these three 54 Mbps adapters/cards: WG 121, WG311 or WG511)

This unique bundle is available for £329.99 (Inc. VAT) and can be ordered at www.bulldogdsl.com/residential/xbox.asp or by calling 0845 452 0052 (local rate).

Alternatively users not looking for a wireless experience can enjoy a similar package with the Netgear DG834G router and adapter/card replaced by the Netgear DM602 Ethernet modem.

if that news was right, they get HALO online?!?!? how come we dont get that :huh:

EDIT: Unless it means XBC, but that doesnt qualify as "Xbox live-enabled

They just have no idea what they are talking about. There is NO Halo online. Unless you count XBC. But they said Live Enabled so theyre just wrong.

If you take a closer look and see the BOLD writing you'll know what he's talking about. Please read carefully before posting criticism. :confused:

I saw the bold writing and on the link it says two xbox games, not two xbox live enabled games. Its just included in the package that gets you an ethernet modem and the xbox live starter kit with a year subsrciption.
