Microsoft has released a new trailer for the Halo 5: Guardians inspired Xbox One hardware that will be hitting retail this fall. The trailer shows off the newly announced Halo 5 Xbox One console, two new Halo 5 themed controllers, and the Halo 5 themed Astro headset.
The console is truly a thing of beauty, even if you’re not a Halo fan. It features a futuristic visual design, and is complimented by the matching controller. It also comes packed with in-game content and other goodies, which is detailed below:
- Custom 1TB Xbox One console2
