Microsoft's Halo 3 Special Edition Xbox 360 will retail for £279.99 ($562) from late September. It will not be bundled with a copy of Halo 3 and will be equipped with a 20GB hard drive.
Should be bundled with Halo 3.
What a rip off! It costs more and doesn't even come with Halo three. Who cares about a green case and controller?
why do their boxes always look like sh!t
this coast 40£ more than the premium.
Too bad it will ger RROD and you send it back for repairs and get a normal X360!
Never thought of that. But I think Microsoft would make a note to replace it with a new Halo console instead of sending them a refurbished white one.
Too bad that you can´t spell right... Go and play your PS3, Wii or w/e you got. Fanboys makes me sick with their retarded comments.
How am I a fan boy? I got PS3 Nintendo DS a top range PC and X360. Which personally I keep getting X360 to repairs. Maybe its because the heat in my country (40 Degrees Cencusles Daily) Also for my spelling unlike you I am american or english -_- Edit: For your Info I have a X360 Core. I bought Core because I am unintrested in paying for Online. I pretty much enjoyed games like GOW even if I didn't play it online, though to that fact it felt too short. Character models are brill but enviroment is just ok. I pretty much Enjoy Forza Motorsport 2, keeps me busy while waiting for GT5 and I also prefer playing Pro Evo on X360 then PS2. Though lately I bought HDMI TV and my X360 don't have HDMI port and It looks pretty ugly new PS3. At this time Its gathering the dust. I replaying Ninja Gaiden Sigma again (can't wait for download content) and before you tell me go play Bioshock, I am waiting for my copy to arrive from play.com on PC for the simple reason I prefer PC for FPS when given the choice.
Oh, so it matters where I´m living? OK, that´s wrong, dude. There is a world outside the US, if you didn´t know that. But I guess you´re right... In America!
Is your IQ low? You are saying I am american? can you post a mature comment please?
all they need to do is replace the motherboard. so why would you get a pro console instead? your about the dumbest fool on this website.
So for $562....we basically get a core system?...huh?
You can't read, can you? 20 GB hard drive? Missed that? Anyway, yes, it's expensive. No surprises there, it's a limited special edition meant only for Halo fanatics, not anyone else.
whoa not a whole 20!
To orange ring of death.
And this applies to all the newer 360's, refubished 360's that are on the way back including the ELITE as it has an additional heatsink on the GPU. I am not happy with the HALO 3 edition, the regular Premium can be purchased for £230 on play.com and an Elite for under £300 this console is ONLY a different colour scheme. Also the reason why it does not come with HALO 3 as this console is for the absolute die hard fans of HALO and will buy this and probably not use it as they will be purchasing HALO 3 Legendary Edition this will be part of their collection. I like the colour scheme but the price is a complete rip off if it had 120gb then yeah I would have got one.
My friends X360 Elite got RROD. That completely makes your statment wrong. Also the new X360s with HDMI Port has no redesigned heat sink thing.
oh em gee, can i get your time machines where you went into the future and personally tested each machine with a test to find out if it could survive...
could this be it? One version of it at least.
I like Halo, but i'm not willing to buy a Halo console. Certainly not for £280, more than the post price cut premiums.
A Halo bundle without the game ... ummm ok ?
make a 360 bundle with mass effect, Halo 3, and bioshock.
It's a marketing scam..... give it a new color scheme, throw in some extra accessories (play and charge) and charge more for it. It's a premium with a new color scheme. It's meant for Halo fans and I'm sure there will be many Halo fans that will buy it. But it's not really worth the extra price.
What an awesome awesome paint job this HALO 3 SPECIAL EDITION XBOX360 has!
If only for the ability to say "I'm Playing Halo 3 on my Halo 360". Me? Premium 360 and regular version of Halo 3 will do just fine.
well they already released the price for in the US, $399.99...wow what a big price difference for UK.
Halo nuts will be wearin a bike helmet painted green to be in character never mind buyin this green x box
i agree they should bundle halo3 in their.the ony thing that makes it a halo edition is that it's green!wtf
f!ck that wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy over priced. BIG MISTAKE no one is gonna buy this, come on.
This thing is GOD UGLY!!IMHO!
Halo3 should be included in the box as it's MS big title.
No HDMI, only 20 GB hdd, and not bundled with halo3...this is stupid. The colors are OK at best...only the die hard halo fan will say its teh awesomest....id much rather trade in my premium and get the elite. I wonder who makes these marketing decisions in ms...halo3 xbox but no halo3 game...thats just outright stupid (to me at least).
Did you read the article? It comes with a 20 gig harddrive and it has a HDMI port. Read before posting comments like that.
Sorry, but this is too expensive. Now, if it came with a bigger HD--say, the 120--AND a copy of Halo 3, then it would probably be worth it, even to the non-hardcore group. As it is, it's exploiting Halo fans...but have no doubts, it will sell.
it will be $399
If you pay that much for a military ugly ass green paint job, NO game and the 20g hd.You should go see a psychiatrist or you need a girlfriend.
your getting a custom limited edition HALO 360 and Halo controller. Some people think that alone is worth 50 bucks more. But when you add the custom HALO wireless headset, and a play and charge kit.....then your getting a bargain!!! Those two accessories do not come with the premium. Anyways..like I said earlier. EVERY kid would much rather have the HALO 360 then the regular premium, as well as HALO fanatics. So they will sell. Same as custom HALO 3 zune sold out everywhere.
