You knew it was coming: Microsoft will be releasing a limited edition Halo 4-themed Xbox 360 console that will arrive alongside the game on November 6, 2012 (via IGN). The custom-designed machine includes a 320GB hard drive, sounds effects tied to the on/off and eject buttons, a pair of custom constrollers, a wired Xbox 360 headset, DLC for the game, and, of course, a standard edition copy of Halo 4.
The console and controllers, as you can see, look pretty slick. Those controllers are also the newer versions with the rotating D-pad, and they feature blue LED lights. The DLC includes an armor skin, a weapon skin, an emblem, armor for your avatar, and an avatar prop. The formal announcement technically hasn't gone out yet, but a brief appearance in Microsoft's online store revealed a $399.99 price tag and basically confirms that this is, in fact, a real thing.
