Just like last time with Halo 4 we'll be able to get a console bundle. It will contain a limited edition 1TB console that has a cool Halo 5 theme and custom sounds for starting up, shutting down and ejecting/inserting the disc. It will also come, just like the Halo 4 bundle, with a Halo 5 themed controller. This time it's only 1 controller though.
Well, we couldn't do splitscreen anyway...
What's different from last time is that the console bundle will now include the Halo 5: Guardians Limited edition package so the true collectors won't miss out on most of the collectables. As an added bonus you'll also get acces to the FOTUS armor from the get go and have an exclusive FOTUS emblem to show off.
Take a look at the 3D model yourself here. The bundle will cost $499.
If you already have a console and are happy with the way it is you can always think about getting one of the two Limited edition controllers. Or get both!
The first one is the Spartan Locke controller and is the one you'll get with the console bundle. It will also come with the Resolute visor acces from day one. This controller will cost you $69,99.
The second controller is the Master Chief controller. This controller will include day one acces to the Dauntless visor and will also cost $69,99.
Let me assure you that as of now all of the DLC content you get with these items except for the FOTUS emblem have been confirmed to be available to everyone through the REQ pack system. These acces codes, just like the pre order codes, only assure you of day one acces!
Will you be getting any of these items?
Let us know down below!
Thank you for reading!

We have had quite a few names for the new xbox, durango, infinity, 720 (well that was fan made) and just xbox. A recent report tells that Infinity has been the chosen name for the next gen xbox. Microsoft themselves has not confirmed this name as of yet but it is believed that Infinity will be the name that will success the 360.
This article is from GameSpot
Thanks to Smokin Shadowz for bringing this article over.
The next Microsoft console will be named Xbox Infinity, according to a report by the UK arm of the International Business Times.
Unnamed sources, who are believed to be involved in the development of the new console, confirmed to the publication that the new hardware will simply be called Xbox Infinity. These claims mirror those of a reportedly leaked image, which recently appeared on the Reddit website.
IBTimes UK sources also revealed that development units have already been made available to software developer partners. Previous rumours suggested that some of Microsoft's next-generation titles may have been cancelled, while others may be as much as six months behind schedule.
Microsoft is expected to officially unveil its next home console to the public at its event on May 21. Rumours have circulated for months regarding the branding that the Redmond, Washington, software giant will elect to use for the Xbox 360's successor, with Xbox 720, the Next Xbox, and the device's development codename, Durango all being used in lieu of any official moniker.
GameSpot contacted Microsoft seeking clarification, but a spokesperson declined, saying, "We do not comment on rumours or speculation. We are always thinking about what is next for our platform, but we don't have anything further to share at this time."

Adding 4x official servers, answering the fans call. Tired of getting kicked from rented servers? Well, now you don't have to deal with that.

"We have heard your wish"
DICE has boosted the number of official Battlefield 3 servers on consoles.
"We have heard your wish for more official DICE servers," the studio said. "As of now, we have effectively quadrupled them on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
"Note that you will still be able to get quick matched into any ranked server. For the best results if you want an official DICE server, please refer to the manual server browser and enter 'DICE' as a search term.
"If you go to the Server information screen, all official DICE servers will have the owner set to 'DICE'. Remember that you can favorite servers that you like so you can easily find them again on your next session."
In April DICE enabled Battlefield 3 players to begin renting their own servers for multiplayer games. Official DICE servers soon began dropping off the radar on PS3 and Xbox 360 because they had been rented out to players, although it didn't take long before public opinion led to their reintroduction.
Last week EA confirmed a Battlefield 3 Premium Edition release date of September 11 in the US and September 13 in Europe. It'll include the game, all Battlefield Premium content (including five themed DLC packs), and a 'Multiplayer Head-Start Kit' which automatically unlocks 15 different weapons, gadgets and vehicle upgrades.
