    Halo 4 Xbox 360 console bundle revealed, costs a legendary $400

    Well, if there was any doubt that Halo 4 was coming to the Xbox 360, and NOT the Xbox 3, this should solidify that



    Are you in the extremely unique position of both being a big Halo fan and not owning an Xbox 360? Microsoft's hoping that's the case, as the publisher is releasing a special Halo 4-themed version of its Xbox 360 alongside the game this November altogether, the whole shebang will run you 400 big ones.

    Beyond the schnazzy console and the game itself, you'll also get two branded wireless controllers, and a less thrilling generic black headset. And you'll have plenty of space for all those Forge-created maps with the 320GB hard drive built-in.

    It looks like Microsoft doesn't want anyone to see its bundle just yet, however, as the listing was taken down from Microsoft's web store after IGN spotted it. We expect to hear more official news on the bundle in the coming weeks (or whenever Microsoft's marketing team decides to acknowledge the leak).

    No way will you get me to spend $400 on a console that starts it's 8th year when it is released.

    Looks pretty good. Tooo much going on though for my personal taste. I much prefer how the Halo Reach slim looked. $400 is a lot, but people will still get it :P

    I like that they keep putting the new Xbox 360 controllers in the bundles with the transforming D-Pad. It's such a better d-pad experience than the standard d-pads. I hope that is the new standard for the Xbox 3.

    400 bucks is way too much for a console that is near the end of its lifecycle.

    I am with ya rad. But watch them sell like hotcakes. Sad but true. Hell, I am sure there are Eskimos out there that go to the store to buy ice.

    I think it's hideous, but the controllers look sweet. Hopefully they sell one of those separately like they did with Gears 3 and Halo Reach.

    It looks like an abstract painting. Idk what I'm looking at.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    I'll definitely be getting that for sure. Price wise, it isn't that bad AT ALL!!

    $299 for a console
    $60 for a game
    $40 or the upgrade HDD from 250GB to 320GB
    $free extra controller


    I'll FOR SURE be getting this in November upon the midnight launch!!!

    That's a pretty obscene price for some mediocre unit cover art and controllers.. Definitely going to pass on this.

    I am not feeling all the colors going on, the console design has always been to my liking since they released the 360S however.

    Still this SKU looks fantastic next to the supposed Super Dooper SLIM PS3

    Price point is a huge mistake imo, people will buy though I believe. The console possibly has 16 months until the next system?
    Gaming on all platforms right now.

    Does everyone think it's $400 for a console? I mean, upgraded HDD, extra controller, and a newly released game. That all barely adds the actual price if you were to buy it all separately, PLUS it's unique.

    It is one of the best looking LE consoles I have ever seen, but I won't be getting it, and I'm sure a lot of people would be hesitant to spend their money on it when the next xbox is practically right around the corner.

    Still, its a great collectors item and for some reason it really looks great to me

    I couldn't justify spending the 270 asking price here in the UK on a console which is 7 years old this December.

    It's a sweet looking thing though, I'll give it that.
