There's a limited edition Halo 5: Guardians Xbox One coming, obviously

Hold onto your fragile minds - Halo 5: Guardians (opens in new tab) is getting a console bundle. It's almost as if it stands as the franchise lynchpin of the entire gaming slate for Xbox One or something. Replying to a fan, 343 Industries studio head, Josh Holmes continued the recent trend of senior executives casually making announcements on Twitter (opens in new tab) by saying:

The tweet has since been deleted - no one must know! - but the only real questions this announcement leaves us with are the following: 1) Will it include Kinect? 2) Will it follow the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare example and include a 1TB hard drive? 3) What does "pretty sweet" entail?

My tentative answers would be "doubtful", "probably" and "I bet it uses the two-sided console design to do something representative of the Master Chief/Spartan Locke reflection motif 343's going for. Well, that or it'll have a big Chief helmet immovably welded onto the top", respectively. Expect actual answers at E3.
