Zune Halo Pre-order
In time for the launch of the Halo 3 beta and the announcement of the September 25th game launch date, GameStop today launched pre-orders of the Special Edition Halo Zune. The start of sales reveals the full scope of content beyond that mentioned in the company's original preview. As well as the custom plastic shell and menu wallpaper, the limited edition will come with several videos including a Zune-specific episode of Red vs. Blue; the player will also be preloaded with the complete Halo series soundtrack to date and conceptual artwork.
The Special Edition 30GB Zune is still slated to reach stores on June 15th as a GameStop exclusive. Pricing is unchanged from the $250 for the stock model, though the player's supplies are expected to run dry within the next few months.
