‘Halo 3’ to come in three flavors

The third installment in Microsoft’s best-selling video game series, “Halo,” will come in a high-end collector’s edition priced at $130.

“Halo 3,” the concluding chapter of the alien-fighting trilogy based on the Marvel graphic novels, is set to be released later this year. No specific date was given by Microsoft today, but the company did detail three editions it will sell.

Standard Edition, which is just the game, will cost $60.

Limited Edition, $70, will include a bonus disk with a documentary on the making of the game. It will also have what Microsoft is calling “an audio-visual calibration tool … to make the most of fans’ high-definition home theaters”.

The $130 Legendary Edition, which will come in limited quantities, comes in a Spartan helmet and includes a second bonus disk with more documentary materials. As an added treat, this edition will come with original “Halo 3” storyboard art.
