What's inside the Halo: Reach uber press kit?

This Halo: Reach press kit is different from the huge $149 Legendary edition of the game, which instead includes a desktop statue designed by McFarlane Toys and a military-themed case, so we've snapped a few photos of the individual items inside.

Looking more like a nuclear football than a video game, a packed-to-the-gills press kit for the upcoming Xbox 360 game Halo: Reach showed up in this morning's mail.

Different than the regular ($59), limited ($79), or legendary ($149) versions that will be available starting September 14, this kit consists of a metal briefcase that opens to revel a series of Halo-related items.

Inside, we found a United Nations Space Command folder with press information, a softcover art book titled "Halo Overture", a Halo: Reach Xbox 360 controller, and a tie-in novel, "Halo: The Fall of Reach." (Random sample passage: "They floated a half meter above the ground, as if the odd pink bladders on their backs kept them aloft. One alien used a slender tentacle to open the hood of a car.")

As this package is different from the huge $149 Legendary edition of the game, which instead includes a desktop statue designed by McFarlane Toys and a military-themed case, we've snapped a few photos of all the individual items inside. Check them out below.
