Halo 4 Limited Edition Xbox 360 console bundle announced (399)

looks nice, but I could never buy one of these LE consoles, stick out like a sore thumb next to your tv and other devices and the novelty wears off fast I imagine

I personally like the look.

I don't know why you would complain about the price of what is essentially a CE console. And besides, you can always wait until after the holidays and buy it for probably cheaper than a normal system when they go on clearance (at least you could here for the other Halo editions).

Man, I know this is subjective but sometimes it amazes me how shitty people's taste can be. This looks so much better than the Halo 4 one. Best looking LE home console this gen IMO.
That's pretty much how I feel. Though you expressed it more tactfully than me, heh.

This poster pulses with an appeal so broad the typical restraints of our societies fall by the wayside.

I'd need to see larger pics to decide whether I liked it or not. It looks okay, but if it literally says HALO 4 anywhere on it that will change completely. Designs on these LE consoles are fine, I just hate when they emblazon the name of the game on them. So tacky.

Microsoft you motherfuckers.

Think I'll need to sell my modern warfare 2 console to get this one.

Doesn't look great in pics. Reach one is nicer.

But I have the Halo OG Xbox, the Halo 3 puke green one and the Reach S. this thing is mandatory at this point.

Fuck.

Love the bundle. I need a new 360 and a pack with a 320gig HD, 2 controllers, a copy of the GOTY Halo 4 [:p], and a wireless headset! Very temping. I do prefer the look of the Reach one though but I don't really care. rarely even look at my consoles anyway.

You have no one to blame but yourself.

They really need to go back to doing them like this:



That, is a sexy console.
It looks nice in pictures but have you seen it in person? It's absolutely atrocious looking. The color scheme is terrible.

Sad that the Halo 4 one isn't very good and is $399. I was hoping for a cheaper 360 for this holiday season so I could play Halo 4.

THE WORDS! They'll drift away without the _!

Ugly.

$400 seems like the only price it was ever going to be though, since a 250gb regular console is still 300..

This is awful. Whoever thought this looked nice, your mothers should probably still dress you. Reach console is much cleaner. Really disappointed on this.

I feel compelled to buy it simply because it's a Halo special edition (sad fact: I own all three released thus far). But I don't need it. I don't need it. I'll just keep telling myself that. :p

I can see those controllers going for $100 each on EBAY...

Anyways, i thought they would've waited until the Wiiu's price was announced and then matched that price with this bundle.

Yep i have had nearly every limited console apart from the reach one. It wears off fast, the last one i bought the gears one is now been given to my mam for netflix and sky and i have a nice plain slim white console.

This has to be one of the most ugly consoles Microsoft has ever produced. So busy, so garish, so thoughtless and tacky. I was utterly beside myself reading the first ten replies that were like "DAYYYYUM, that's some hot shit right there! Pre-ordered today!"

This system is roughly the equivalent of one of those collared, silk button-up shirts that has a gigantic wraparound print of Goku shooting a fireball. Which I guess explains its appeal to a small, but enthusiastic and tasteless niche of the community here.

I might just get this. I hate the look, but I can stand it. My Xbox 360 is still the OG one from the console's launch, and I can tell it's very close to going bad. I've been looking to update to Slim, in fact, so I guess this is kind of perfect... Wish it had Kinect thrown in, was the Limited Edition of the game, and was about $100 cheaper... but whatever, I guess. I'll just take what I can get. A new console is a new console.

Wonder if it will have any other goodies than the mostly-online ones. I'm kind of puzzled that the real life in-game swag fad has worn off. I've got all of these nifty little statues - Noble Team, Marcus Fenix, a Facehugger, etc - but now all of the games I pre-order are suddenly only giving me digital goodies, usually skins.

I hope to god that this isn't the final 360 bundle, all said. I would like a few more goodies and a discounted price perhaps. I'm not sold at all on this yet.

EDIT: Also awaiting bigger pictures. And from multiple angles. I guess I hold out a morbid measure of hope that this is just a poorly taken angle/shot...
 
Urggh. What the hell were they thinking? That is really very ugly indeed.

Oddly the only nice special edition of the Xbox 360s was the UK Union Jack one. And that was only okay because the flag was a decal, so you could leave it off and get a nice plain white slim Xbox that went with existing accessories.
