Cool... put me on the list for one. Seriously though... I'm guessing these will only be available via auction and contests?

so how would someone come across these? I mean these are not out in the market right ? since there are only 500 who gets them? Just wondering.

look at the close up picture...

first of all it's not a flat black like the elite, it's actually a smooth gloss black like a PS3

second it's not a sticker, it looks like the same plastic dye treatment that official faceplates get.

isn't it obvious? they're sending these out to game journalists just like they did with halo 3 LEs and swag.

It's basically a bribe for a good score by getting the journalists "excited" about the title.

Might be a mistake, as all of the prephs look like standard ones. I wonder what mobo/drive is inside...
