Commemorating the 20th anniversary of Halo

Limited-edition console and gamepad!

The two new items were announced in honor of Halo's 20th-anniversary and celebrate the release of Halo Infinite.

The bundle includes the customed console, gamepad, and a copy of the Triple-A title. The console feature a personalized design that incorporates the theme of the game. There are Dark metallic armored patterns with iridium gold accents that can be seen at the bottom of the console. Looking at the top portion you'd find that it is covered in stars as seen from the surface of Zeta Halo. While the blue highlights on the fan grille on top are inspired by Cortana.

In addition, special Halo-themed sounds play when the console turns on and off. The controller included in the bundle has a matching front design, a 20-year iridium gold mark on the back, and side-and-back grips to fit various play styles.

Both the console and the controller are identical to the original model except for the appearance and sounds.

The Elite Series 2 Limited Edition controller, on the other hand, is far from ordinary. Apart from the recognizable Master Chief look, this controller differs from the conventional Xbox Wireless Controller in several ways.

The tension of the thumbsticks of the Elite Series 2 is adjustable with the tools included. You'll receive six thumbsticks, two regular, two classic, one tall, and one huge dome, which you can personalize to your own texture and shape.

The D-pad is another item on the front that can be changed. Standard and faceted are the two types available.

These paddles can also be removed or adjusted for size. You can choose from three different levels of hair-trigger lock to modify the pull of the shoulder buttons. Any adjustment on the controller can be saved in one of three custom or default profiles.
