MS Sends 500 Limited Edition GTA IV Xbox 360s To Press

Microsoft sent out 500 limited edition GTA IV Xbox 360s to the press today, making us all jealous in the process. These Xbox 360s will not be for sale and are solely for building hype for the game (as if there isn’t any?), so we sadly won’t be seeing these in any stores, ever. However, for those still interested, MS took some Xbox 360 Elite systems, slapped some nice glossy black paint on them, tacked on the official GTA IV boxart, and threw the logo onto the faceplate. Also received was a “briefcase full of peripherals,” containing everything from an Xbox Live Vision camera, to an Xbox 360 headset. Below are four pictures taken of the system and peripherals (images taken courtesy of

Before anyone asks, no, TheGTAPlace did not receive any such console.

Wait, so there's one getting sent to the press and another kind for people to buy???

EDIT: nvm, just re-read it. Misread something.

EDIT EDIT: If they actually sold those...I would actually buy a 360.

Those look pretty sweet. MUCH better than the Halo ones they made a while back IMO. Would love to have one, too bad though.

Hey, if you want to have your own custom skin for ANYTHING, check out Skin It.

Make your own Grand Theft Auto IV skin. I made an identicle skin of the above 360 skin for my PS3. I saw a commercial for this yesterday and checked it out today and made my own skin. :thumbsup:
