This is the pending box art of Halo 3. Looks photoshopped to me. I believe a more stunning box art will be revealed in time to come.

Halo 3 may shipped in 3 editions, the Legendary edition, the Limited edition and the regular edition.

The Legendary edition will includes three bonus discs of extra content and a collectible replica of a Spartan Mjolnir Mark VI helmet (below).

The limited edition will includes special content and while the regular edition just gives you the game.

Pricing of the the Legendary, Limited and regular edition may be at 99.99, 69.99 and 59.99. Weird pricing, but I guess if there are 3 editions the pricing should be around these prices.
