Halo Reach Bundle Announced for Japan
Microsoft shares plans for limited edition bundle and special accessories.
Japan may account for a tiny fraction of Halo's sales, but Microsoft is still giving fans here the full experience for the upcoming Halo: Reach. Coinciding with announcements made overseas, Microsoft Japan announced the Halo Reach Limited Edition for Japan this past week.
The Halo Reach Limited Ediiton bundle includes a special Xbox 360 slim, colored silver and with special Halo Reach markings on both the system and the two included wireless controllers. Also included in the special box is a standard headset, a retail copy of Halo Reach, and all required cables.
The bundle will be priced ¥39,800. This is a savings of about ¥3,000 over buying everything separately.
As detailed earlier this month, Reach will also be available in standard form for ¥7,140, as a Limited Edition costing ¥8,610, and as a Legendary Edition running ¥16,590. The content of the Limited and Legendary editions mirrors their overseas counterparts.
All versions of the game, including the hardware bundle, qualify for the "Recon Helmet" download code pre-order bonus Microsoft previously announced.
Microsoft will also be making available its lineup of Halo-themed accessories for Japanese release. These include the Halo Reach Limited Edition Wireless Controller, priced at ¥5,775, and a Halo Reach Limited Edition wireless headset, priced at ¥6,300. The headset is different from the standard headset that's bundled with the system.
Those who want to play online will be able to purchase a Halo Reach Limited Edition version of Xbox Live Gold Membership. Priced at ¥5,229, this includes 2 months on top of the standard 12 months.
All these Halo: Reach product will be available here on September 15, simultaneous with the rest of the world.
