Slim Xbox 360 gets Reach for first limited run
Microsoft kicked off the start of the San Diego Comic-Con with the first limited-edition Xbox 360 based on the slim redesign. The Limited Edition Halo: Reach model trades the usual glossy black for a matte silver with markings designed by Bungie itself. Gamers also get two color-matched wireless gamepads and a regular copy of the shooter.
Inside, the console remains the same 250GB model as before and shares its 802.11n Wi-Fi. The system will ship on September 14, in sync with the stand-alone game, and will be relatively discounted at $399 versus the regular $299. Microsoft hasn't said how long it expects the special console to remain on shelve but won't produce more once supply runs out.
