Halo 4 Xbox 360 Console Confirmed

Quote:
  • Exclusive design: Limited-edition, one-of-a-kind console was custom designed by the Halo 4 developer, 343 Industries, and Xbox 360.
  • Two custom Halo 4 wireless controllers: High-performance controllers boast a range of up to 30 feet and come with a rotating D-pad and blue LED lights.
  • Halo 4 Standard Edition game: Begin the Halo Reclaimer saga right out of the box.
  • Exclusive sounds: Hear actual Halo 4 in-game sound effects when console is turned on and when the eject button is pushed.
  • Largest hard drive available: The 320-GB hard drive offers more space for game add-ons and downloadable content, and more memory to store all of your entertainment.
  • Custom downloadable content: Receive a code to download Halo 4 content from Xbox LIVE, including unique armor skin, unique weapon skin, unique emblem, matching avatar armor, and unique avatar prop.
  • Black Xbox 360 headset: Chat with friends on Xbox LIVE, or team up and jump in with multiplayer gameplay.





The console was announced prematurely, so the page has been removed. Funny how this isn't the first time someone at Microsoft has prematurely revealed something. Someone really needs to hire better people to work there.

Anyway, this console looks bad-ass! Not a fan of just a regular, black headset, but whatever floats Microsoft's boat.

I have to say I'm extremely disappointed in Microsoft for doing this. So close to the next generation of consoles and they actually think they can get away with releasing another console? At the very least they need to offer a trade-in incentive for the regular 360 slim toward this one. My slim is too new to even consider buying another console now.

I'm sure certain retailers will offer some sort of trade-in deal. Besides, it's not up to Microsoft anyway.

The bundle is available for pre-order on Microsoft’s online store for $399.99. [Update: Looks like the product listing has been removed for now.]

It's up to Microsoft if the system is only sold through the Microsoft Store.

Man that looks awesome, I'm a sucker for non-standard LED colors...but I have the Reach console so I'll have to give this a pass. With luck the controller will be available separately so I can at least grab that.

Surely it will be available through other vendors as well, Microsoft is just the one that let it slip. The other retailers can choose whether or not to have a trade-in offer of their own.

The console and controllers look amazing, but like Reign had stated about the new gen consoles that are right around the corner, I don't thinking buying this would be the brightest of ideas.

Why not? It's not like you won't need your 360 when the next Xbox comes out, unless you're getting rid of your library too. But then you may as well argue that they're trying to get away with releasing "another Halo" this close to next gen.

Looks cool but my 360 is just a few months old, so this and the highly rumored "next gen" console will just have to wait.

Looks like I'm out another 400$...
Or, since my GF loves Halo as much as I do, this would be a great christmas gift to me, right?
Just need a good pitch, the Star Wars Console would like to live in the basement maybe, and/or the Halo 4 one matches the living room much better?

Not sure what you mean by that, i'm sure there are people who will buy it, not everyone is planning on buying the next gen the day it releases so it is possible that people will be playing their 360's for 18+ months from now. Also how is a custom console any different to a collector's edition of a game (besides the obvious price tag). If people are a fan of the franchise or console collectors, than MS will shift more than a few.

I personally have no need for another console right now, but if something were to happen to mine, this might be worthwhile picking up for the sake of having a collector's item.

Ehh, not to burst your bubble but the appeal of it being "collectible" wears off pretty fast, but it's still really nice to look at and use something other than a generic black box. The custom sounds (and blue LEDs in this case) definitely help in that department. IDK if I could ever go back to a plain console, the beeps and dings would drive me bananas after growing fond of the subtle shield sounds my console makes.

I was thinking more of something you can show off and brag to others, but i guess you're right, in this case the word 'collectible' is used more as a marketing tool than anything.

Just to be clear, when you say 'subtle shield sounds' do you mean your console makes a sound similar to the shields recharging or am i just getting excited

The system itself has an exclusive Halo design in addition to custom sounds when it’s turned on or when a disc is ejected. According to IGN

That console looks pretty amazing. I love the colors on it, I may just have to break down and sell my current one when this comes out because it cools sweet. The blue is just really nice! Nice find

The bundle was listed with a retail price of $399.99 before it was taken down. Source

I don't think it's worth that price because I agree with DarkReign2021.

I'm in no need for a new Xbox so I hope Microsoft release's the controllers separately. It looks great though!

Don't know what many of you are smoking but this is an ugly and messy look that have no artistic sense nor meaning compared to a graffiti. Halo Reach themed console was minimalist and beautiful, but this...

I can patiently wait for a next-gen Xbox.

This Halo 4 console design isn't one of my favorites. I liked the Kinect Star Wars and Gears 3 consoles better.

Most retailers will stock it. Worst case scenario, you would have to buy it from an online retailer.

According to Amazon (which has it available for pre-order):

Quote:
Custom Content: Receive a code for downloadable Halo 4 content, including a unique armor skin, unique weapon skin, unique emblem, matching avatar armor, and unique avatar prop.
So it sounds like the same content as the limited edition, minus the map packs.

I cancelled my LE preorder to preorder this instead, they said the console comes with the same dlc as the LE, that was the only reason I wanted it. Can anyone confirm it really does have the same dlc?

Not true, but the DLC pass will be available day one for 2000 msp. So if that is the only reason you want the LE you are wasting $15 on the rest of the stuff.
