Microsoft has announced that an Halo-themed XBOX 360 will be released. Dubbed the “XBOX 360 Special Edition Console”, this comes with a Spartan Green coloured console with a gold trim. The controllers will be the same colour as the console. It will feature a 20GB hard drive, headset and a play and charge kit. It is unknown if the controller will be wireless.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has announced plans to open the marketplace and ship the XBOX 360 Elite in Europe. It was released in the US in April 29 and will be released in Japan in October 11. Europe will get it before Japan, as it will be released in August 29. The Marketplace has no release date yet, but expect it at before the end of the year.
