The (pretty sexy looking) Halo 4 bundle leaked a few days ago is real and will be available alongside the release of the game on 6 November 2012.
The console is available to pre-order via some retailers (Amazon appears to be one of said retailers). The bundle – which includes a custom-designed console and two exclusive controllers inspired by the game, a standard edition copy of the game, a wired headset, 320GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, and Xbox LIVE tokens for exclusive “Halo 4” in-game and avatar marketplace downloadable content – will set you back $400.
