Halo fanatics will be happy to know Microsoft has set September 4 as the official launch date for the upcoming Halo 3 limited edition accessories that will ship ahead of the game and alongside the Halo 3 Special Edition Xbox 360.

Starting next week, two new Xbox 360 wireless controllers will be available for an estimated retail price of $59.99, featuring both the Covenant Brute and Master Chief themes and will also come bundled with a rare figurine designed by Todd MacFarlane Toys. In addition, a Halo 3 themed wireless headset sporting the Spartan green and gold colors will sell for the standard wireless headset price of $59.99.

Also this Tuesday, Xbox 360 owners will finally be able to get their hands on the Xbox 360 Chatpad announced back in July. The Messenger Kit, which includes the Chatpad and an Xbox 360 headset, will sell for $29.99 and will provide the Xbox 360 controller with a full backlit keyboard for typing text messages from the Xbox Live dashboard and in supporting games without the need of hooking up a USB keyboard.
