took a diarrhea on it =(
I was thinking the exact same thing! couldn't they come up with something better?
OMG that is a really sickly colour. Just make it all Black and a little bit of green. The controller looks the worst.
its for halo fans, are any of you douche-bags halo fans? for all of you that havent noticed, it is green to match the color of master chief's armor and the bronze(orange) matches his visor.
this has to be the gayest thing i've ever seen! another sku? meh, excuse me while i take a dump.
Money hungry M$.
Like Sony is any different with their "new" 80 gig PS3.
hahaha crazy.. yeah money hungry huh, kinda like adding 20 GB and a game for the same price as originally launched... rriiiigghhhttt
They should be fired!!! This is all the hardware microsoft had to show?
did you expect microsoft to announce .. the Xbox720, or maybe a 360-portable!? ;P
Looks like ima have to purchase a 2nd 360....
don't forget to buy a green towel so that it will match! q: joking... ((:
I was really underwhelmed by that conference. Nothing we didn't know already. No price cut. Just a cheap piece of plastic with 5 buttons, a 360 that looks like it had been puked, and a reminder that the 360 has a lot of games coming out for it. Overall, besides Assassin's Creed, COD4 and RE5 that was a complete waste of time.
I was a little disappointed too...but yeah COD4, Assassin's Creed (WOW I want this game) and RE5 was great, but no truly exciting new announcements...
exactly it was a bunch of trailers and talk but nice techno music though....
Don't like the green colour at all, bronzing looks alright... I certainly would not get this even as a Halo fan.
and even my biased eyes can't see that as a good color choice. Who is running the design dept at Microsoft.....Stevie Wonder?
He told me himself that he was glad he couldn'e see it when it was announced.
the color choice is awful and look at the controller makes me sick
It looks like ass Edit: Why did I lose a bubble. I had 5, then I had 4, now I have 3... WTF!!!!!!!! You webmasters need to lighten up 4 real. Jesus Christ!!
you guys dont bring up the color choice for the halo version of the origianl xbox....IT WAS THE EXACT same color, and it sold out all limited edition copies.
I have one!
I have no doubt that this one will sell out like the last Halo Xbox. Regardless of how ugly it looks.
Master Chiefs armour anyone?
i wonder if the new heatsink is green also?
But i ain't got no money to buy another XBOX360. But it looks cool tho.
That will actually go great with my orange pleather love seat and 1981 cloth lazyboy. I'll put it under my woodgrain-wallpapered particle board tv stand to cover an old irish rose stain on my green shag carpet.
Not exactly a Halo color but damn it would have looked alot better.
the question is will it work?
Microsoft has decided to change its gaming console name to Halo Box 360...lol, sorry I had to.
Isn't this what the console skins are for? It would be a lot cheaper and probably have a much cooler design.
it looks cool. I like the controller, that thing looks really nice. Im going to get the controller.
Its 20GB and has HDMI. Game not included (WTF!)
since its limited edition you should hope that is doesnt die when they stop making these thing. plus M$ is making it to hard for customers when it comes to buying a 360 now there are 4 SKUs to choose from. Come on make up your mind and drop the Core version come on.
I think its awesome that MS is offering the freedom of choice to their customers. Some people unfortunately dont have 530 bucks to spend on an elite and halo 3. And with a price drop imminent, the core is likely to go down to 250.00. So new gamer would you rather spend 530.00 or 310.00.. This will appeal to more than I think people realize.
at least based upon the general consensus so far. At least with a faceplate, you can always remove it when it gets tiresome or something new comes along. Personally I don't think it looks too bad, just somewhat bland for something the scale of Halo 3. I think there should be some very artistic designs to more accurately reflect the game itself.
This piece looks like gr8 big canister behind army jeeps....
I owned a halo 2 xbox. (DOA in Japan) released in Japan and Canada. When the 360 came out I sold it on ebay for $30 more than what I paid for it without the halo2 game that came with it. So it may be worth it if you think you might want to flog your 360 in the future. Mind you it was a cool blue colour.
It is green because master chief's armor is green. Everybody knows this. It is the obvious choice for the color.
How to waste you money in 1 easy step: - Buy a limited edition version of a console If this costs any more than a standard XBox, I will be surprised if the sell any at all
It looks horrible
Please tell me whats the diffrence
that people are already hating on this. i find it funny that some people on here think this wont sell out right away, your crazy if you think this isnt going to be gone as soon as it hits the shelf. heck i might buy one just to have a halo one. i also like how sony fanboys act like they wouldnt buy a mgs themed ps3, because you know you would.
this is tha worstthing M$ hav shown at e3 ,tha colour is so shxt ,i can smell it
well its proberly good for Halo fans out there just liek any other products that relates to the fanbase...but to me it is ugly lol thats y theres a choice to buy the Halo 360 or not to buy :D as the fam sentence goes *to be or not to be* *to buy or not to buy*
ABC Fabrics has confirmed that it is mass-producing "green colored" towels to go with the new Xbox360-Halo SKU! The company is expecting large number of pre-orders going by the history of 360s. kidding guys! all the best though. just one question - will they still retain the "Red Rings of Death" or will it be "Green Rings of Death"? just asking... q: chill guys! adios!
They did it with the original xbox.
Xactly the same color as the limited edition xbox/HALO combo. Watever same taste different color.
Wow, this is all they could come up with. They could have atleast bought someone from the apple design department to help out with the colors. Bungie should stick to games console design isn't going to make them any money at this rate.
I cant believe that there is a market for consoles like this. Who would want an ugly green bogie in the corner of their living room.
milking that cow dry next up the halo lunch box,halo condom,halo air force one etc........
I believe they are making a statement with this console. Halo 3 is XBOX, and they may as well have an XBOX that is painted after the systems best selling franchise. Speaking of franchise, notice that the system itself is the merchandise, the accessory to Halo 3. Usually they'll release different looking controllers, sometimes gold games (Zelda, anyone?) but the core system itself being sold with the color scheme of master chiefs armor? I wouldn't buy it for fear of being someone Microsoft knows they'll make a quick buck off of, but I know a lot of people are going to go out and buy this thing anyway.
why didnt he show this off at the beginning so we'd see all the good stuff at the end...as soon as he pulled it out all i thought was "that sh!ts ugly, theres no way im gettin that"....and he showed it off like its the best thing ever, all c0cky and confident....that halo real life video was pretty cool though...and gears looked better on pc than 360 and there was a brumak fight.....that made me mad
going to be bundled with the game? my friend is getting this..i would but i don't need to 360's...i'll get a PS3(once i get a job)
I haven't read all the post but I know a few are thinking MS will foul up this holiday season by offering 4 SKU's, that's not the case. What's the difference between the SE HALO Xbox n' the SE HALO 3 360? Nothing, this isn't something that will be on the market forever, it's LE n' once it's gone it's gone, just as it's predecessor. As far as why they're not including the game that's pretty obvious; there are 3 SKU's to that as well. You get whichever YOU want. It was the right move. But I do understand those who say that whomever purchases this console must be a die hard fan n' will certainly go for the Legendary edition of HALO 3, so it should just be one large package...with what...a $600 price tag? I sold both my 360's (but that trip to Chicago was worth it...) n' need another before Sept. Honestly I'd cancel my Legendary Edition I've had pre-ordered since day 1 n' snatch this thing up if it were bundled. But since it's not... I don't know, an Elite is looking good. Depends on the pricing, if it's over 4 bucks (n' I'm sure it will be) I'm not touching it.
I like it. Does it come with a 120 gb hard drive?
The first Xbox had a great Halo edition. Now MS goes and screws up big time on this one. All they had to do was make it Dark Green. Anyway any chance of a MGS4 PS3 edition? LOL
first off, Xbox has to do with green, and this green is similar to the camouflaged color the US Army uses, I think it looks sweet. I bet you Army guys will pick this up as it matches pretty well. How old are some people on here? the DS comes in lots of colors, as well as the Ipods...sheesh, people are hating on a Fn Color..WTF is worng with you peeps?
I'll be the one and only guy that purchased one. I hope it has the original release 360 components. I don't want that new heatsink either. And I'll pay the top $$$ for it. Bill Gates will call me to be his guest of honor. He cares about me. After all, every time I sent out my 360 for the repair (3X now) I get the sorry letter. It is a great feeling every time. I hate this new 3 year thing. I insist on paying for the repairs and shipping.
