Supposed listing on Microsoft store indicates storage-rich $400 custom hardware bundle on the way with Halo designs, custom sounds, downloadable content.
Halo is one of Microsoft's biggest franchises, so it comes as little surprise that the company is reportedly planning a limited edition Xbox 360 hardware bundle to launch with the new shooter this November. IGN reports that Microsoft posted a listing for a 320 GB Halo 4 Xbox 360 bundle (at right), which has since been yanked.
According to the report, the Halo 4 limited edition Xbox 360 bundle will include a copy of the game, a console branded with Halo imagery, and two wireless controllers with blue LED lights and Halo designs. Additionally, the bundle will reportedly include a black headset and downloadable content in the form of an armor skin, weapon skin, and a character emblem, as well as armor and props for gamers' avatars.
Lastly, the Halo 4 Xbox 360 bundle will reportedly play custom Halo sounds when the system is booted up and when a disc is ejected. As of press time, Microsoft had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment regarding the authenticity of the supposed product listing.
Halo 4 is due out on November 6. A direct sequel to 2007's Bungie Studios-developed Halo 3, the game puts players back into the boots of Master Chief, adds a new Spartan Ops mode and an updated Forge toolset, and sees the return of the franchise's iconic battle rifle.
