Microsoft have announced that American gamers are to be offered an Xbox bundle featuring Halo and a green console, as part of a limited edition special offer.

So far American Xbox owners have been somewhat left out of the limited edition console offerings, where as Europe has had both a translucent green and more recently Crystal Clear Xbox's available. Some 200,000 units of the Halo bundle will be available, and will contain not only a green console but also a "Halo jeweled" controller - presumably meaning they've put a different card insert behind the clear plastic window.

The news comes only a couple of days after Microsoft announced that they were taking nearly $30 off the price of Xbox in the United States, and also reducing the retail price of a number of late-2003 titles such as Project Gotham Racing 2 and Xbox Music Mixer.
