Looking more like a nuclear football than a video game, a packed-to-the-gills press kit for the upcoming Xbox 360 game Halo: Reach showed up in this morning's mail.
Different than the regular ($59), limited ($79), or legendary ($149) versions that will be available starting September 14, this kit consists of a metal briefcase that opens to revel a series of Halo-related items.
Inside, we found a United Nations Space Command folder with press information, a softcover art book titled Halo Overture, a Halo: Reach Xbox 360 controller, and a tie-in novel, Halo: The Fall of Reach. (Random sample passage: "They floated a half meter above the ground, as if the odd pink bladders on their backs kept them aloft. One alien used a slender tentacle to open the hood of a car.")
