The ignorance of homophobes always makes me laugh.

i think there s adifferenc between being a homophobe and thinking somethign looks gay. i have no problems with gay people, but do find many things look gay.

How about that unenthusiastic crowd reaction? Several seconds of dead silence were followed by laughter. Way to go, Microsoft!

And no doubt they'll slap on a bigger price tag just so you can have a fugly paint scheme.
Also - What's the point if you don't bundle Halo 3 with it? Who in their right mind is going to spend hundreds on a custom, limited edition console and then NOT buy the game? You may as well throw it in with this.

Just doesn't make sense to me, should have stuck with the face plate.

I'm thinking it's probably so that folks can buy this and still have the choice of which edition of Halo 3 they want to buy. Although saying that, I think the majority of people buying this console will be getting either the Legendary or Limited edition.

My mate wants to buy my 360 off of me, so just to be different i might actually buy this, but doubt it wil get released in uk for normal premimum price anyway, wonder if i can take mine back to Toys R Us and do an exchange lol

Why can't they sell PC cases modded like that? I mean ones they don't charge $700-900 for. *Ahem* Coolermaster. Take a look at those $700 airbrushed cases at Newegg, ridiculous.
