Today, we have some brand new information on the Limited Edition Halo 4 Xbox 360, as well as some gorgeous photos of the custom-skinned console and controllers.
The project came about from a collaboration between Claire Gerhardt, from the Xbox 360 hardware team, Art Director Kenneth Scott, Executive Producer Kiki Wolfkill and the audio team who assisted in deciding which sounds to use for the console startup and disc tray opening. After dozens of design changes and hundreds of varying elements, the team settled on the final design seen above.
The Limited Edition Halo 4 Xbox 360 Console comes with the console, two Forerunner-themed controllers, a wired headset and a copy of the standard edition of Halo 4. Along with all that, players get a ton of digital items for their Xbox Live Avatar.
Interestingly, the main inspiration for the console design comes from an object in Halo 4 that we haven't been introduced to yet. The object is important to the story, but we'll have to wait to learn just how. Keep reading for a photo gallery and more on how the controllers came into being.
The Xbox 360 console comes with two controllers, as seen below. The decision was made to create a Forerunner-themed controller as well as a UNSC-themed one. The UNSC controller will be made available separately, as the console ships with two Forerunner-themed controllers.
