Xbox 360 250GB Limited Edition Halo Reach bundle unveiled

While limited edition Halo Xbox 360 hardware may not be new, the new Halo: Reach limited edition bundle is likely to have Halo fans of all ages rejoicing. The best part of this new bundle is that it is the first special edition bundle to include the new Xbox 360 model. The new Xbox 360 s model that this bundle is based on was unveiled at E3 2010.

That model came in a glossy black finish and had one wireless controller included. According to Engadget, the new bundle will include “250GB HDD, built-in 802.11n WiFi, a silver (presumably matte, based on the picture) finish, and custom, Halo-inspired sounds.” Also included in this bundle is two Halo: Reach inspired wireless controllers and a copy of Halo: Reach.

Xbox 360 Press states that “Additionally, Microsoft and Bungie revealed an onslaught of other “Halo: Reach” news today at Comic-Con International, including a first look at Forge World, Versus Firefight mode and more.” The Halo: Reach Limited Edition Xbox 360 bundle will be available starting September 14th (alongside the launch of the Halo: Reach game) in the United States. It will be priced at $399.99.

The Halo: Reach game will also be sold in standard, limited, and legendary editions. The standard edition will cost $59.99 (U.S.), the limited edition will be $79.99 (U.S.), and the legendary edition will be $149.99 (U.S.). In Japan, the game will launch on September 15th.

This actually looks quite nice. I haven't owned any consoles in my life but with this box update I may finally buy one. I'm sick of the lack of games on PC nowadays. Glossy black is OK for me though since this silver one probably won't be available in EU.

This looks nice, I may invest in this. I still have the original 360, as in I was #19 in line at launch. Still runs great, but I may just give it to the kids to play and put this one in the back. Need to get a TV now to mount above my monitors to play it on!

Looks nice but is it really justified at $100 more? Especially when the new "slim" xboxes already come with the 250Gb Hard drive. All you're getting a color change and one additional controller (and presumably a copy of the game). Used to be the special editions offered the 250Gb hard drives when the standard console offered only 120Gb so the extra $ may have been justified.

A copy of the game + a controller IS a full $100. Gaming is expensive and always has been. Arguably, you're getting the specialized controllers and console for free if you get this bundle.

To really appreciate this, I need to watch it with my own eyes, I bet its cooler when you see it yourself, and can confirm every detail its design has for delight.

I agree, i wish they sold it separately so I could use it on my pc.


According to IGN, they will be available separately:


The silver wireless controller and headset will be sold separately in late August. The controllers have a suggested price of $59.99 and come with a token for animated Covenant Banshee Avatar item. The headset has a suggested price of $49.99.

I'm going to hope that means wireless headset and not wired, otherwise that's just ridiculous.

FINALLY a non-black one. Not to be racist, but I would have never bought the black Xbox 360 S, especially the glossy one.

I like the black one better!! more stylish !! goes well with the interior .. wats there in it to be Halo edition anyway..

this looks really nice and the old design was very cheap and not appealing. Great amount of space as well.

From Major Nelson's Twitter:
"BTW: The Halo: Reach console makes a Halo inspired sound when you turn it on, and another one (shield power up) when you eject the drive"

This looks alright. Better than that Halo 3 special edition one.

Yeah, the special sounds would be cool.

I like the new black xBox but this one looks nice too. The old white & green color scheme was boring.

I bet you didn't say that when it come out,
