For those who would be partial to picking up a new Xbox 360 in celebration of Halo 4's November launch, there's just such the thing in production, as Microsoft has a Limited Edition console bundle up its sleeve.
The bundle, which will carry a recommended price of $399 (€399 / £269), includes an Xbox 360 wrapped in Halo 4 detailing, as well as two controllers, a headset, a copy of the game, plus tokens for in-game items and avatar marketplace trinkets.
Wireless controllers, whose Guide buttons glow blue like the bundle's pack-in versions, are to be sold separately for $59 (€49 / £39).
Halo 3 and Halo Reach themed versions of the Xbox 360 accompanied the launch of each game, as did models commemorating Resident Evil 5, Modern Warfare 2, Gears of War 3 and Final Fantasy XIII and Kinect Star Wars among others.
Outside of the Metal Gear Solid 4 run, Sony has tended to limit special edition PlayStation 3s -- such as the Yakuza, Final Fantasy, One Piece and Ni no Kuni models -- to Japan.
