In May, 343 Industries and Microsoft announced a limited edition for the upcoming Halo 4. While this wasn’t particularly surprising, as most previous Halo titles received a special edition of some sort as well, some were questioning why the game wasn’t set to receive a console bundle as Halo 3 and Halo Reach had. Microsoft has now announced that such a bundle is indeed going to be sold this fall.
The bundle, the contents of which can be seen above, contains a limited edition Xbox 360 console, two exclusive Xbox 360 controllers, a copy of Halo 4, a wired headset, and downloadable content for both the game and for Xbox 360 Avatars. The console and controllers both feature blue lights rather than the standard green ones, while the console also has Halo 4-themed sounds for the hardware’s various functions. The bundle will be sold for $399.99 on November 6.
If you want some snazzy Halo 4-themed hardware, but don’t want to shell out $400 for it, Microsoft will also be releasing stand-alone controllers starting on October 21. While the controllers differ in design from the ones included with the console bundle, opting for a UNSC-themed design instead, they still have blue lights rather than the traditional green ones. These controllers also include redeemable codes for Avatar tee-shirts, and will be sold for $59.99 each.
How do you feel about the hardware Microsoft is releasing for the game? Personally, I really want the console bundle. I normally don’t care for game-themed consoles, but this one looks really nice. I love the combination of gray and blue that Microsoft went with.
Halo 4 releases on November 6 exclusively for Xbox 360.
