Microsoft's special edition Halo 4 Xbox 360 console is coming this fall, and we have some new pictures showing off its detail.

Halo Waypoint, the official Halo destination, posted an update revealing some information about the console's design. "We started off with a few different concepts, but most of them were Forerunner in direction," Microsoft said.

"What was interesting about this process was looking both at our universe for inspiration – as well as the fabrication, material, and tech processes that had become available to us. Figuring out what we could do and how those manufacturing and painting techniques could apply to the unit was a completely organic, two way process."

Microsoft notes there were "dozens of iterations with hundreds of changing elements" for the console. They even added custom power and eject sounds. You can listen to them and see additional photos right here.

The console costs $399.99 and includes two controllers, a copy of Halo 4, wired headset, 320GB hard drive, built-in Wi-Fi, and Xbox Live tokens to download exclusive Halo 4 content. A standalone Halo 4 wireless controller includes a t-shirt and download content for $59.99.
