Halo fans in the United States will be pleased to know that they will soon be able to purchase a special edition Halo: Master Chief Collection Xbox One.
According to a post on Major Nelson’s blog today, Xbox fans in the US for a limited time only, will be able to get their hands on an Xbox One Special Edition Halo: Master Chief Collection bundle. The bundle will include a Cirrus White Xbox One 500gb console, controller and a digital download code for Halo: Master Chief Collection. You can read the whole blog post here.
The console will be available later this month and will be retailing at $349. As mentioned above, Major Nelson did state that the console bundle will be available for a limited time only. If you’re after one I’d suggest getting your money ready to go and keep checking in at your local retailer.
A few months back, Europe received a similar bundle with a black Xbox One and a digital copy of Halo: Master Chief Collection bundled in. The announcement to release a similar, more limited bundle in the US suggests that the bundle has performed well in these territories. Looks like you lucky folks in the US are deemed more worthy of a sleek white console than everyone else too!
Though the white console isn’t as groundbreaking as some of their previous special edition console designs, it does offer good value for money. However if you’re in the market for a bit of a fancier console, it wouldn’t be surprising if we get a first glimpse of a Halo 5: Guardians limited edition Xbox One at E3 in a few weeks time.
What do you think of the special edition Halo: Master Chief Collection console? Will this sway you to go spend the money on Microsoft’s latest console, or will you hold out for Halo 5: Guardians? Let us know in the comments below.
