Every so often, a game is monumental enough to warrant a limited run of themed consoles. Halo is one, and evidently the newest version of Call of Duty is another. Shortly after seeing a new multiplayer demo before the rapidly-approaching Nov. 11 release, there's now proof that a custom edition CoD-themed 360 (320GB) will be shipping with it.
The highly decorated console will go on sale November 8th in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and EMEA for $399, and that includes a pair of stylized controllers as well as a copy of the game. A one month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription to Xbox LIVE is included, and those that already own a console can still pick up the limited edition controllers on their own.
So, who's ready for battle, soldiers?
