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."

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
