Custom-themed Xbox 360, two controllers, and more.

    It looks so bad :( MS needs to hire a better art team for halo,one that can keep things similar to halos actual old appearance

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      Actually….I rather like this design.
      I kinda wish Sony released more special systems but alas I imagine they are to busy releasing games.

      This Halo box tempts me to purchase a 5th 360 but I think $400 is far to high 7 years into the lifecycle of the system.

      • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

        Well Im a huge halo fan so the art looking like a poor rip off of halo just offends me :(

      • Malcolm Reynolds

        I’m bettin someone messages Sal about me commenting in this thread and that somehow me saying I like this system will be twisted around and considered baiting and or trolling.
        But that thread about the Sony redesign full of haters…..totally cool.
        Eyep.

          Wow,someones a fanboy and marked any negative comment down :

          Children these days just dont get that opinions vary

          Also really random but whats your favorite game?

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            My absolute favorite game is Xenogears on PS1. I adore it. Flaws and all. My next is FF9.
            <3 ViVi.

            How about you?

            • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

              Ive always wanted to play Xenogears !!

              My favorite game now is FF7(just played it last year and beat it in 5 days XD) And after that I have no Idea which game takes what number,I am also playing ff8 now (first ish time) and it is amazing,cant wait too play 9 :D

              • Anime101210

                Do play Xenogears if you can (its on PSN for 10 bucks if you have a PS3 or PSP) it is a beast of a game, and like Malcolm Reynolds said, its also in my top 3 favorite games of all time (they are all so close that I cant pick a favorite outta my top 3)!

                On Topic: I love the design (especially the controllers), but all that blue just seems weird when Halo has generally used green as its main color.

                • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

                  Yeah Ill need to pick it up,

                  As for halo 4,in general I cant stand the art,I havebeen a huge halo fan ever since CE and when I saw halo 4’s designs I was actually confused : It doesnt look like halo,it looks more like a halo knock off like Section8 crossed with crysis and Metroid

                  • Malcolm Reynolds

                    I also thought there was some serious Crysis nano suit wearin by the chief goin on in recent screen shots. Not a fan of MC’s new armor design.

                    • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

                      My brother didnt know it was Halo : I had to tell him it was halo,and he didnt believe me at first

                • Malcolm Reynolds

                  What are your top 3?

                  On topic: i like the blue. Especially this particular shade of it. It seems cool and refreshing. Like listerine!

                  • Anime101210

                    Kingdom Hearts 1 obviously :P (for starting an awesome series) Megaman Legends 2 (even with DAT cliffhanger), and Xenogears. I guess I should say top 5 because I need to throw in MGS1 and FFIX too, as they all are interchangeably my favorite games of all time!

                    • Malcolm Reynolds

                      All 5 of those are brilliant wonderful games.
                      I also see they are Sony PS1 titles!
                      Good taste friend. Good taste indeed.

              • Malcolm Reynolds

                I truly adore 9 with all my gaming heart. IMO for one to not love that game they have to be dead on the inside!

                • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

                  XD I always like how Vivi looked

      • Locksus

        I know you won’t but if you bought one it would actually be pretty awesome to play Halo 4 with you = D
        No joking!

        • Locksus

          Oh, so someone else clearly knows me better, then. Whoever disagrees thinks that I wouldn’t like to play Halo 4 with Malcolm? Okay, sure.

          • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

            Someone knows you better then you know you? XD thumbs down is just getting spammed

            • Locksus

              Yeah, tell me about it :p

        • Malcolm Reynolds

          Dude….I would love to play Halo with you. Thats my fave part of the series. The online Co-op.
          Imagine this though….I managed to convince the wife 4 times to let me blow hundreds on new xbox HW.
          Each time she became increasingly harder to convince.
          Not even a silver tongued prince could soothsay her for a 5th time.
          Thats saying I could convince myself to buy another one which, as much as I love the Chief….I just dont think I could do.

          Then there’s the Live fee :(

          Truly Locksus…I would like to do an H4 campaign run with you. Wish I could man.

          On a side note: I just found out about a little SNES gem called Live A Live today.
          You ever came avross an English version of it?

          • Locksus

            I see, that’s unfortunate. Though I understand why it would be a little difficult to convince your wife for a 5th time.
            About Live a Live, this is the first time I’ve actually heard of the game but as I’ve a SNES emulator installed on my computer, I think I’ll check it out! Thanks for notifying me :)

              • whiteferrero

                There’s an english ver.? It’s a pretty obscure game from a certain company called Square. With some chick named Yoko Shimomura as composer. Like I’d play that game. heh…..

                PLEASE TELL ME IF YOU’VE SEEN AN ENG VERSION. T_T

                • Malcolm Reynolds

                  Check the wiki link I provided for Locksus. It has info about a fan translation. If I werent so tired tonite I would hit the web and track down a rom with the fan translation patched in.
                  And yes, I am currently bidding on a Super Gamicom copy so I can download a ROM/”backup” of a game I legally own without being considered a pirate!

                  • whiteferrero

                    awesome sauce. thanks MR.

                    • Malcolm Reynolds

                      Word!
                      I just learned about this game todayy and love sharing.
                      Although clearly off topic my defense is….This is a gaming related discussion on a game site! Amirite?
                      : D

    I think it looks pretty good. It wouldn’t make my top 10 custom design console list or anything, but it’s not bad at all.

    I agree with you @gematsu-cb953f6ca5923f7517125db46ed1293d:disqus

    I think that price point is a bit to high. Otherwise, its a very nice bundle.

    I know you and @gematsu-8b4224068a41c5d37f5e2d54f3995089:disqus post here often. Personally, I want to see if we can find a way to remove the down vote button. I don’t really like it.

    We just switched to a new system, so that might take time. Thanks for your patience.

    • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

      No problem :D my site is using the same system,if you find a way to get rid of downvoting please do tell XD

      • LordKaiser

        There I gave you a neg. U mad? :D Lol It means nothing really. it’s meaning it’s the same as a opinion.

        • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

          D:< we are now enemies!

      • Malcolm Reynolds

        Gave you an extra thumbs up to balance out LordKaiser’s random unneccessary thumbs down!

        • KingKelloggTheWaffleHaggler

          Yaaah

    • zakou

      Don’t make the same mistake that facebook did xD there’s even a page of 100 milion followers who want thumbs down button on FB.

    • LordKaiser

      The down vote only means someone disagree with what the other person said. It means nothing really. it’s just mere opinion unless the message get’s hidden, i have no problem with it. You know like if the message gets hidden by multiple negs.

  • hush404

    Anyone else find it weird that Halo has always had a green motif in it’s advertising and now with Halo4 it’s blue. I wonder if that was somehow significant beyond a game style point and something 343 embraced to show that it’s their project now, as a new era after Bungie. OR maybe I’m looking too much into it? :P

  • zakou

    Looks really cool, but I’m not getting it ^^

    My most anticipated games are, well not halo xD

  • syaznifaiq

    no comment…

  • Rydak

    I kind of like the design, but not for $399.99.
