More Limited Editions of Halo 4 to Come? Legendary Console?

Now I may be reading too much into this, but does this Tweet by 343industries' community manager Jessica Shea (BS Angel) seem to be cheekily suggesting there may be more Special Editions to come?
It would have been very easy for Jessica to say there's only going to be the Limited Edition that we've already seen, so this does seem to suggest there may be something more they've still to announce. 

We know there's no Legendary version of the game, but I've previously speculated that we could see a Legendary Xbox 360 console. With previous Halo releases where there's been a Legendary game and Special Edition console, many fans have had to choose one or the other and end up feeling as though they're not getting the "complete" package. So it would make sense for them to forego the Legendary game in favour of a really special version of the Xbox 360 hardware.

Sad Diego Comic-Con in a couple of weeks (12-15th July) would be a logical place to announce a new console - it's the right audience at any rate - so hopefully we won't have too long to wait.

Big thanks to Quentin for the tip!


  1. I think we might be over thinking this. Regardless, I'm still holding out. Just in case.

  2. Admittedly there's a lot of speculation here, just trying to fit the pieces together.

    - We know there's no Legendary Edition game.
    - We've heard nothing of a Special Edition console one way or the other, though we know MicroSoft do like to release fancy consoles.
    - Jessica's failure to deny other Limited Editions implies that they exist.
    - ???
    - Legendary Edition Console!

    It's worth pointing out that this isn't the first I've heard of a Legendary console, so it's not a complete blind jump. :)

  3. Yahhhhh!!!! Let's dump $400 into a brand new Halo 4 console that comes with 2 halo 4 controllers + halo 4 game or limited edition + 320 GB hard drive and maybe a mic. Oh wait don't forget about how theres a new 720 coming out in only roughly 2 years.... Microsoft is such a cash grab ffs

  4. will there be duel wielding in halo 4? Because the halo 4 offical site said you could hold two weapons Simultaneously and it was called the "firepower package". I know this does not have to do with this topic but I am confused, they said they had scrached duel wielding

    1. There's no Dual Wielding in Halo 4. The Firepower Package allows you to spawn with two "primary" weapons, so you could spawn with both a BR and DMR as opposed to BR and Pistol.

      I did an article detailing all we know about Armour Abilities, Tactical Packages and Support Upgrades >> Here <<

  5. Legendary Edition Console!!!!!!

    1. Heh, you've stumbled across an old article here, I'm afraid.

      I was wrong this time, but there is a Limited Edition console:
