Halo 3 Xbox 360 Priced and Dated

Published On August 23, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

Microsoft’s Limited Edition Halo 3 themed Xbox 360 has been priced and dated in Europe. Unsurprisingly, the console will launch on September 26th, the same day as the game and will be priced at £279.99.

Included in the box will be:

  • Spartan green and gold finish Xbox 360 Console
  • Halo 3 Special Edition Wireless Controller
  • Halo 3 Special Edition 20GB Hard Drive
  • Halo 3 Special Edition Wired Headset
  • Halo 3 Special Edition Gamer Pics and Theme (Exclusive download via Xbox Live)
  • Component HD AV Cable
  • Ethernet Cable
  • HDMI Port
  • Play & Charge Kit
  • Xbox Live Silver Membership (One-month Xbox Live Gold Membership)

Stephen McGill, Microsoft’s Head of Gaming and Entertainment, said:
“We are pleased to offer the cool Halo 3 Special Edition console for the huge Halo fan community. It’s a great way for Halo fans to show their allegiance to one of the most popular and successful entertainment franchises ever. Halo 3 is just one of the amazing games coming to Xbox 360 this Christmas. Combine the best games lineup of any console ever, including the universally acclaimed BioShock launching this week, with today’s new affordable estimated retail pricing that makes it easier for more people to enter the world of Xbox 360, and it’s clear there has never been a better time to be a gamer.”

While having a Halo 3 themed console may be an absolute god send to some, it seems a little odd at a couple things that Microsoft have left out. First up, why put a HDMI port on the console but not provide a HDMI cable? But that’s nothing compared to the lack of something else…

…the game itself? Surely a Halo 3 themed console should come with a copy of Halo 3? £279.99 for all the above plus a HDMI cable and a copy of Halo 3 would be a bargain and would surely fly off the shelves at a rate not seen since back in December 2005.
