Pretty sweet, isn't it?

So now you're probably curious about what this package will include. It goes without saying, the console is a part of the deal, but you should know that it will be sporting a 320 GB hard drive. In addition, you'll receive a standard copy of Gears 3, a wired headset, a download token for in-game content (the Crimson Omen weapon skin and Adam Fenix playable MP character), and two Gears 3 controllers.

Also, Major Nelson points out that "the power and eject buttons have been customized with unique sounds from the Gears of War universe".

The Gears 3 Limited Edition console will be available at the game's launch on September 20th for $399. If you're interested in the controller, but not the console, those will be available separately for $59.99. They are based on the new silver controller with changing d-pad.

Thanks to all the members of the community who sent this one in!
