With E3 2012 still fresh in our memories, and San Diego Comic-Con just getting underway, news still continues to pour in for this holiday season’s biggest titles. One of those titles is Halo 4, and it appears that Microsoft accidentally jumped the gun in listing a brand new Halo 4-themed Xbox 360 console on their website.

The bundle includes a custom-painted – supplemented by blue LED lights – 320GB Xbox 360 console, along with two custom-painted controllers. Similarly to the Star Wars R2-D2 Xbox 360, the console will make unique sounds when powered up/down, and when the disc tray is activated. Also included in the bundle is a headset. The listing was priced at 399 dollars.

There are also some exclusive Halo 4 goodies as well. Gamers who purchase the bundle will receive, “exclusive Halo 4 downloadable content including a unique armor skin, a unique weapon skin, a unique emblem, matching avatar armor and a unique avatar prop.” The listing for the console has since been taken down.

Halo 4 is being developed exclusively for the Xbox 360 by 343 Industries and will be released on November 6th, 2012.
