For a lot of people, a new Halo game means it's time to finally buy a new Xbox. And when it comes to Halo 5: Guardians, good things come to those who wait. At Gamescom 2015, Microsoft announced a new, limited edition Halo-themed Xbox One, that comes bundled with the game and a hefty 1TB of storage. The new Xbox will feature metallic blue detailing on both the console and controller, and will be available for $499. You can also buy a Master Chief-themed controller separately for $69.99. Ever better: the console launches on October 20th, a week ahead of Halo 5, so you'll have plenty of time to set-up before you start playing. The new console is available for pre-order today. Halo 5: Guardians, meanwhile, is coming to Xbox One on October 27th.
