Gears 3 comes with custom console bundle

Is Gears of War 3 the game that means you simply have to buy a 360? One might wonder why the previous two installments weren’t enough, if that’s the case, but one would also direct you towards the Limited Edition console recently announced over on the Xbox Live blog.

360 community guy Larry Hryb reveals that this special console will be custom designed with a Gears theme, meaning it’s colored in different shades of blood, complete with a 320GB hard drive. Two custom 360 controllers will be included, along with the standard edition of the game, free DLC, and a headset.

The set will retail for $399, launching on September 20.
