Microsoft are preparing to launch a Halo Reach themed version of the the new svelte machine, and it doesn’t look half bad.

Whereas many special edition consoles get a bit garish and slap characters and insignias all over the show, the Halo Reach edition is a far more classy affair. With a silvery tint and a machine-joint-like design across both the console and bundled in controller, you can quite easily see the Master Chief himself settling down for a marathon gaming session with it.

The Xbox specs themselves remain unchanged from the previous S edition, with a 250GB hard drive and built in Wi-Fi. There’s also a new wireless headset on the way, though that will not come as part of the package.

Stateside readers can pre-order their special edition console here from Amazon, priced $399.99.
