In a move that has shocked absolutely no one, Microsoft has announced that they will offer a Limited Edition Halo:Reach Xbox 360 Bundle available September 14, the same day as the game’s launch. The bundle contains a silver 250 GB Xbox 360 S, which not only captures the look and feel of the game, but also features custom sound effects from the Halo universe. It also comes with two silver wireless controllers featuring Reach artwork, a similarly decorated headset, a Standard Edition copy of the Halo: Reach, a voucher for ‘Limited Edition Elite’ armor and an episode from the Halo Legends anime anthology.
The guts of the special edition console are the same as all other new Xboxes, with the built-in wi-fi and 250GB HDD. So basically you’re paying for the extra controller, game and special paint job. Still, it’s a pretty good deal considering the fact that the new Xbox normally retails for $300 and this new bundle will come in at $399. It’s about $20 cheaper than if you buy everything separately.
In addition, standalone Halo: Reach themed controllers and headsets will go on sale in late August, for $59.99 and $49.99 respectively.
