Today at Comic Con in San Diego, Microsoft announced the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo: Reach bundle which will be available September 14th when Halo: Reach launches.
Designed by Bungie, the Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo: Reach Bundle includes all the features of the newly designed Xbox 360 console, such as a 250 GB Hard Drive and built-in Wi-fi. Additionally, gamers will receive two Limited Edition Wireless Controllers and a standard edition copy of Halo: Reach.
The Xbox 360 Limited Edition Halo: Reach Bundle features an exclusive silver design and comes with two custom Xbox 360 Wireless Controllers with artwork inspired by the game, a Standard Edition copy of "Halo: Reach," a token for the Limited Edition Elite armor set, an episode of "Halo Legends" and a "Halo: Reach"-themed Xbox 360 wired headset.
In addition to the exclusive new console bundle, Microsoft and Bungie unveiled the "Halo: Reach" Limited Edition Wireless Controller and the "Halo: Reach" Limited Edition Wireless Headset, both of which feature a distinctive silver color and exclusive "Halo" artwork by Bungie.
