Microsoft has announced that Halo: Reach has given birth to a Limited Edition Xbox 360 (not literally, of course). The silver coloured console (pictured below) was apparently designed by Bungie themselves and features a look which is in keeping with their mega popular FPS series.

The Limited Edition model is set to be priced at £249.99 and has all the features of the recently released skinnier and shrunk down Xbox 360. For those that don’t know, that means a 250GB hard drive and Wi-Fi capabilities. It’s exclusively available to buy from GAME and Gamestation from the September 14th and also features a standard copy of the game (which also goes on sale on the 14th), two Limited Edition controllers, a branded headset, a token for the Limited Edition Elite armour set, an episode of Halo Legends, and, in what has to be the geekiest feature, the console will also have familiar sounds from the series.

From September 3rd, the controller and headset will also be available to be purchased as standalone items. The former will be priced at £39.99 and the latter £34.99.

“We’re delighted to have secured this exclusive. Our customers in GAME and gamestation are already really excited about Halo: Reach and this limited edition Xbox 360 will be a must-have for Halo fans. The bundle offers amazing value and adds an extra dimension to one of the mostly hotly-anticipated launches of the year.” Said Adam Davis, Trading Director for GAME and Gamestation in an obvious sales pitch.

Halo Fans are urged to pre-order one of these limited models as quickly as possible.
