Halo 3 is poised as potentially the biggest Xbox 360 game of
2007, and Microsoft is making sure that everyone will join in on the craze once
the game hits on
September 25. Currently, the Xbox 360 controllers come in the conservative
shades of black and white, but the peripheral will be getting an extreme
makeover a few weeks before Halo 3’s release.
Spotted on GameStop’s
online store for preorder are two wireless controllers and a headset in
Halo 3 motif. The two wireless controllers come in either MasterChief or
Covenant themes with artwork by Spawn comic book master Todd McFarlane (pictured above). The controllers will also come
with an exclusive Halo 3 figurine from McFarlane Toys. The Halo 3 wireless
controllers are priced at $59.99, representing a $10 premium over the more
pedestrian black and white controllers.
For chatters on Xbox Live, a Halo 3 wireless headset will
also be released alongside the controllers. The headset doesn’t feature any
McFarlane artwork, but instead comes in a shade of green that would match well
along with the MasterChief helmet from the Halo 3 Legendary
Edition. It also will retail for $59.99, the same price as the regular
white edition currently on the market.
For those who must have all things Halo 3, GameStop will be
selling this week an appropriately themed Halo 3 Zune music
player. The special edition grey music player will come preloaded with
artwork, music and videos from the Halo trilogy, plus episodes from the Red vs.
