Not content with being one of the most anticipated titles of the year, Gears of War 3 will also be lending its image to custom Xbox 360 consoles and controllers. If you’ve ever wanted that meta feeling of playing Gears of War 3 on your Gears of War 3 console in your room with Gears of War memorabilia, like a life-size Retro Lancer, you’re in luck.

The bundle won’t just be limited to a sweet red and black console art design, but also two custom designed controllers, and of course, a copy of Gears of War 3. If you thought the console is merely an artistic exercise, you would be wrong. In fact, the power and eject buttons make Gears of War sounds when pressed.┬áThe 360 will be equipped with a 320 GB hard drive and built in wi-fi, and will be available on September 20, 2011 for $399.

If that wasn’t enough, the bundle will also be coming with the Infected Omen Weapon Pack, allowing gamers to customize their Lancer, Retro Lancer, Hammerburst, Gnasher, and Sawed-Off shotgun with the infected omen skin.

If owning another 360 isn’t for you, rest assured, you can still purchase the customized controllers separately, with the new transforming d-pad, for $69.99. The controllers will also be bundled with the Infected Omen Weapon Pack and will be available on August 11.
