Images of the limited edition Halo 4 Xbox 360 console have been floating around the web for some days now. The dang thing looks so perfect that most just assumed the images to be fake and created by some Halo fan-nut.
No, the special Halo 4 edition Xbox 360 is real people and it’s coming to stores this fall.
Today Microsoft posted an update revealing some information about the console’s design. The update also contains tons of close-up photos taken of the console itself and it’s controllers.
Microsoft admits that there were many different concepts concocted of their limited edition console. However, none sat well enough in the Halo universe. It took a lot of work and designs to come up with the final product.
We started off with a few different concepts, but most of them were Forerunner in direction.
What was interesting about this process was looking both at our universe for inspiration – as well as the fabrication, material, and tech processes that had become available to us. Figuring out what we could do and how those manufacturing and painting techniques could apply to the unit was a completely organic, two way process.
A major cool update of the console is that it features custom power and eject sounds. The controllers also share a similar theme with the main console and look amazing.
