While I wouldn't rule out some kind of PS3 deal down the road, Microsoft has the jump on its competition with its announcement of a Final Fantasy XIII special edition bundle for the Xbox 360. The bundle comes engraved with the title of the game and ships with a whopping 250GB hard drive, two wireless controllers, a downloadable avatar item (for your Xbox 360 likeness), and of course a copy of Final Fantasy XIII itself.

Expect the bundle to retail for US$399.

Calling it "an amazing value," Square Enix's press release notes the Xbox 360 will be the only console outside of Japan to come bundled with the game. In September last year, Sony announced a 250GB PS3 bundle, which shipped when Final Fantasy XIII launched in Japan on December 17th.

If that's not enough for you, series character designer Tetsuya Nomura has apparently created a Final Fantasy XIII faceplate that Square Enix says it will sell "promotionally in very limited numbers." It'll also be limited to North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

You can pre-order the bundle now, and it'll ship on March 9, 2010 with the game, "while supplies last."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
