    Microsoft proved whispers of a Halo: Reach-themed Xbox 360 S bundle true in short order at San Diego Comic-Con, unveiling the silver hardware for the first time and announcing precious details that should seem familiar to anyone who bit on, say, the Modern Warfare 2 or Final Fantasy XIII bundles.

    The Halo: Reach limited edition bundle, in which a subdued and tasteful silver Xbox 360 S clearly steals the show, will be made available on September 14 alongside the launch of Bungie's last Halo title. The console itself will host 250GB of storage and the whole bundle will retail at $400.
     

    No Caption Provided
     
    The bundle will include, of course, a copy of the game in addition to a wired silver headset, two silver controllers, a download voucher for a bit of Elite armor, and an episode of the Halo anime, Halo: Legends.

    Need more themed controllers? Wires make you feel blue on the inside? No worries. In an effort to keep cashing in on this offer, Microsoft will also be selling a Halo: Reach-themed wireless headset and wireless controllers in August. The controller will hit retail at $60 and will come with a Covenant Banshee avatar item, while the headset will hit at $50. 
     
    Here's some images for ya if you're into this sort of thing. I should note before you look that the press materials mention this themed Xbox "also features custom sound effects from the Halo universe." Major Nelson has since revealed on Twitter that the machine will make "Halo-inspired" sound when you turn the machine on and eject a disc. Surely, that won't get old.
     


    UPDATE: Major Nelson has revealed when the 360 will make a sound. Previously, we didn't know that. Thanks for the heads up,  yoshimitz707!

    @BradNicholson: Major Nelson says you get a shield power up noise when you eject the drive of the Reach 360 S.

    Considering the Kinect bundle doesn't come with a HDD, I need a new 360, and I was interested in Reach, I think I'll pick this up if I got the cash when it launches.

    Bleh! Not very pleasant IMO, but I suppose Johnny Haloz will enjoy it.
     
    Edit: Actually on further inspection, it does'nt look to bad! Think the joypad put me off.

    I like that they actual put alot of work into making this look halo themed.  The final fantasy and splinter cell ones were so bland.  This has a nice halo design, and if the power button sound rumor is true, then thats a really cool feature to truly make it different.

    why not just buy the game and throw a halo faceplate on the front of your 360? if you are gonna buy the new halo game, it's not as if you dont already own a 360.

    Some people might decide that the Reach console is the one they're finally going to upgrade to.

    Remember that horribly gaudy Halo 3 themed 360? This is about 1000 times better than that. I would seriously consider buying one.

    Nintendo do it the most actually, with variations on the GBA / DS.
    Personally, it's something I'd like to see more of.  If you already own the system, it doesn't really affect you and you're not missing out on anything.  But if you're looking to get one?  Then pretty limited edition designs are fun.

    Dumb question....why'd you quote a guy and say exactly what he said? 
    Never been a fan of silver, I bought a silver, or platinum I think they called it, gamecube and vowed that to be my last.Although i will say much cooler looking then the last halo console, the gold on it was cool but it was just an ugly shade of green.
