Halo 3 Console is 20GB Yet Has HDMI

On the Xbox site this evening they reveal the special edition Halo 3 Xbox. Interesting to note is that the console is only a 20GB version yet has HDMI.

Will this be announced for all consoles in the future?

This new Special Edition contains these components:

* Halo 3 Special Edition 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

* Xbox LIVE Silver Membership
* One-month Lbox LIVE Gold Membership

if its not HDMI 1.3 is a no no for me. I want True HD DTS HD and LPCM.( and if it supports x.v.color the better)

# Halo 3 game not included—sold separately

errrrr kind of defeats the purpose of the special edition system.

mcintosh2333908d ago

its so people can get the version they want (legendary/special/normal edition etc)

shotty3908d ago

why do you want "True HD DTS HD and LPCM" if not game supports it, thats only for HD-DVD

aiphanes3909d ago

Why would you want a green Xbox 360?

I like the HDMI...but come on its not next gen HDMI. You got to come correct in the game and go HDMI 1.3

A 20Gb drive?

How much is this sucker gonna cost? At least $399 right?

They're not including the game because it comes in 3 configurations: the normal one for $60, the Collector's Edition for $70, and the Legendary edition for $130. They'll let you decide which one you want to buy.

If your actually gonna buy a new console just because it has Halo 3 slapped on it, I can only assume your a hardcore halo fan, and naturally will buy the legendary package. So why not bundle it with it? Its not like someone is gonna buy this console and then buy the cheaper packaging. This green theme is supposed to be a for Halo freaks who surely preordered the legendary edition as soon as they could.

not to be a fanboy or anything, but that looks like master chief took a giant diarrhea dump on an xbox and cold it green gold. just a thought people, just a thought

They're really pushing it with 4 SKUs this holiday season. Especially since the difference in this new edition isn't just cosmetic.

So you have:

Core - No Harddrive, component cables not included, no HDMI

Premium - 20gb Harddrive, Component cables included, no HDMI

Elite - 120gb harddrive, component and HDMI cables included, HDMI ready.

Halo360 - 20gb Harddrive, component cables included, HDMI cables not included, HDMI ready

Ha ha someone disagreed with you. Sad, sad people.

Anyway, back on topic, confusing, no? I do think it's kinda stupid the don't include a copy of the game, if someone is going to buy a special edition version of the console it is pretty safe to say that they will get the legendary edition of the game. Would have been a fairly neat littl epackage for a Halo-mad fan

If its the special edition, wouldn't it be out only for a limited amount of time?
