Coincidentally, has also made known today that "over one million" copies of Halo 3 have been reserved in North America, which reportedly shatters "pre-order records in the video game industry." Also noteworthy is the tidbit about the "exclusive Halo 3 Gamer Pics and Theme" that comes bundled in with the special edition package, and while we doubt this minutiae will sway you one way or another, at least you now know precisely what your $399.99 will be buying.

Microsoft has released a special Halo 3 edition of the Xbox 360, but strangely enough this console doesn’t even come with the game as you’ll have to wait until next week to get your grubby hands on it. It is interesting to note that the Halo 3 Xbox 360 will come with HDMI output, something that is just starting to be included in Xbox 360 Premium bundles (Elites have it all along). How do you like the military green color that it comes in? Is it just me, or does the headset look out of sorts with its color scheme? Come on, Microsoft, with all that money you could’ve done much better where color co-ordination is concerned! The Halo 3 Xbox 360 model will retail for $399.
