If Halo 4 is the standout game for you this year on the Xbox 360, you may be interested in this little gem that came out of Comic Con 2012. Developers 343 Industries have recently announced that along with the game, die hard fans will be able to get their hands on a limited edition Halo 4-themed Xbox 360 console.

It looks pretty spectacular too, although you might be put off by the premium price tag. If you want to get your hands on one, you’ll have to cough up $399 for one. The contents include a 320GB console with silver and blue markings, a copy of Halo 4, two Halo 4 controllers with the same design and a headset too.

The price also includes some Xbox Live credit to download some Halo 4 DLC and some avatar materials from the Marketplace, so all in all it’s not too bad. We think the design of the console is excellent, so you’re basically paying the bulk of this money for that swanky design.

This may be a collector’s item, but do you really want to buy another Xbox 360 console with the Xbox 720 system just around the corner? It looks odds on to be releasing next year and there’s obviously a great chance that $399 will also score you a next-gen console, providing that Microsoft keeps it under $400.

You’ll also be pleased to know that you can purchase the Halo 4 controllers individually for $60 a pop if you don’t want to splash out on a console. Let’s see how loyal you really are Halo fans – leave us a comment if you plan to buy one. It will be available on November 6.

    Well I’ll definitely be getting this but I was hoping that the article would have a bit more specification on the actual content the consumer is getting. Basically over all detail would be nice. For instance: I know that the console features custom LEDs and power/eject sound effects (the controllers also have custom LEDs). I would like to know what the DLC content is that comes with the console and if the controllers are the new Dpad controllers or just regular controllers.

    I am also concerned at the lack of information in this article. My main question is whether this console will feature the same shield recharging sound effects as the Reach console. Sweet deal either way, and I look forward to purchasing mine.
