While the good folks over at Bungie Studios were working on their last installment of Halo – Halo: Reach – they were also secretly working behind the scenes on a new Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 Console – and it packs a huge value.
Microsoft recently retired their old-school RRoD prone bulky looking Xbox 360s for the slimmer not-so-RRoD prone Xbox 360 Slim consoles. The new Xbox 360 Slim packs lots of added features including 5 USB ports, an Xbox Kinect port, internal Wi-Fi support, and a host of other features that make the 360 Slim far superior to Microsoft’s previous Xbox 360 consoles.
While everyone was ogling the new Xbox 360 Slim and drooling over its sheer awesomeness, both Bungie and Microsoft were secretly hiding an epic Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 console that would work to further wow the Xbox 360 community.
The New Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 console is set to be sold alongside the launch of Halo: Reach and sports a Halo: Reach-like silver coating and is made to look like an object that you’d find in Halo: Reach. In addition to the awesome shiny “silverish” color of the Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 Console, it’ll also come bundled with Two Limited Edition Halo: Reach wireless controllers, a headset, and a retail copy of the Halo: Reach video game.
The Halo: Reach Limited Edition Xbox 360 Console might sound a bit pricey at $399.99 when you consider that the new Xbox 360 Slim retails for $299.99, but when you do the math, the Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 Slim console is by far the best deal going.
If you were to add up the cost of a $299.99 250GB Xbox 360 Slim, an extra $59.99 for an Xbox 360 Halo: Reach Wireless controller (Plus the $10 price difference to upgrade the other controller) and $60 for a retail copy of Halo: Reach, then subtract that price by the $100 price difference between the Limited Halo: Reach Xbox360 Slim and the regular one, you’d be saving $30 while walking away with an Xbox 360 that sports a Halo: Reach look and feel – which is priceless.
