The newest edition of the Halo bundle features a gunmetal-grey and blue design to match its narrative tone, and is set at $499. It comes with a custom controller that includes matching colors similar to those in the game ($69.99) and has more internal storage for games than previous editions ($499). The Halo 5: Guardians Bundle includes a copy of the game, as well as other items such as a sound track for your console and model Xbox. The Halo Xbox One bundle is shipping now to those who pre-order it, and it will be in stores by the time Halo 5 comes out.

A two-toned Xbox One isn t the only new Halo-themed hardware Microsoft revealed yesterday.

And Microsoft has partnered with ASTRO to launch a limited edition, $220 A40+MixAmp M80 headset. It has a matte finish and blue accents on the ear cups.
