The bundle is rumored to cost about $399.99

Microsoft posted pictures of a new Halo 4 Limited Edition Xbox 360 console on its store website, but promptly took the images down when they leaked onto other sites before the official product announcement. 

The new console sports a Halo 4-themed look of blue and grey. It also has a custom controller that has blue LEDs as opposed to the usual green LEDs. 

The bundle, which appears to include the spcial edition Halo 4 console, the Halo 4 game, and two controllers, is rumored to run around $399.99 while a stand-alone controller will cost $49.99.

Halo 4?

Not only is the console old, but the game is tired.

Unless they seriously upgrade both, there is no reason to buy this.

Haters gonna hate.

But they could drop in a Kinect at that price.

Curious to see how the new Studio handles Halo.

If they don't agree with you and just go ape**** over whatever the fad du jour is you're branded a "hater." Ever think that some people actually have their own sense of taste?

Not hate.... but they have to actually add something new to make sequels better, otherwise, it's the same old crap.

Alien was good. Aliens was good. Aliens 3... eh. Alien Ressurection? LULZ. Sequels have a harder time being original and interesting. They have to do better or Halo 4 is gonna be a complete waste.

Have you seen any Halo 4 footage? For me Halo's strong point was always the single player story, and Halo 4 is looking fantastic from that point of view.
At-least the story is legible unlike the Call of Duty franchise. (With a massive back story to the universe.)

Yes the graphics and controls will be sub-par due to the consolitis, but I still intend to pick the game up and enjoy the start of the new Reclaimer trilogy.

I'm not the kind of person that will limit myself to a single game. (I have well over 100 on the Xbox 360, 400ish on Steam.)

So... Why not play both? :)

Well now that it's a 7 year old system, there's no better time to get in and drop $400.

If the game is fun isn't that really what matters?

And if you don't have a 360, getting one gives you access to hundreds of games, most of which can be had for $10-$20 used. I'd say that's a better deal than spending $600+ on a brans spankin new console with about 4 titles available only 1 of which is worth playing.

I have a 10 year old satellite receiver box and a 12 year old TV, neither top of the line at the time of purchase. What does it matter? People buying the XBOX 360 for basic gaming or media content can still enjoy those capabilities for years. XBOX Live is a great media service, especially if you don't have cable TV, and if it's anything like the original XBOX, Microsoft will continue to support Live content on the XBOX 360 3+ years after it is "replaced"
