Another Halo means another Halo-console bundle from Microsoft. Alongside developer 343 Industries, the publisher announced a Halo 4 limited edition Xbox 360 during Comic-Con in San Diego. The system will feature an aesthetic design directly inspired by the first-person shooter.
To justify the bundle’s $399.99 price tag, Microsoft will include two controllers, a 320GB hard drive, a standard edition copy of Halo 4, and a redeemable code for special in-game content.
Additionally, the designers decorated both controllers to match the Halo 4 feng shui, and the Xbox Guide button will glow blue instead of the traditional green.
A 250GB Xbox 360 with one controller is going for $299.99. A second controller ($59.99) and a copy of Halo 4 ($59.99) would put that price at well over what the Redmond-based company is charging for the Halo 4 bundle with another 70GB of storage.
Microsoft will release Halo 4 and the bundle package on November 6. It will release a standalone Halo 4 controller with a different design on October 21 for $59.99.
