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.
