For those that haven't noticed, Amazon has exclusive rights to sell the extremely limited run Halo UNSC themed Xbox 360 travel case with built in 19" LED HD display and stereo speakers.

. GAEMS co founder has replied to a customer question stating that once the planned production run sells out, no more will be made, and they have a strict limit available to sell and will close pre orders if that limit is reached. He stated "only a few thousand will be made, unlike limited edition consoles which are produced in the hundreds of thousands". Your guess is as good as mine whether a few thousand means 3,000 or 30,000 or 99,999 but I'm guessing they will make fewer than 10,000 as they pushed up their time frame for release from holiday 2013 to Nov 6th to coincide with Halo 4's launch.

GAEMS and HALO fans;
GAEMS would like to offer through Amazon the ultra exclusive Vanguard that was showcased as a prototype at E3 2012. Amazon is the exclusive retailer for the Vanguard product because no other retailer could bring this bundle to market at this price.
Vanguard is our premium Personal Gaming Environment and comes with several options including some that are not available for the GAEMS G155 PGE. Here are some of the features and benefits you will receive as standard with your Halo UNSC GAEMS Vanguard purchase:
* 19" HD LED monitor that is virtually lag-free with 173 degree lateral viewing angle (G155 PGE has a 15.5")
* Higher wattage chambered speakers for richer stereo sound
* Halo UNSC branded remote control (will work with G155)
* Halo UNSC branded removable carry sling (will not work with G155)
* Halo UNSC branded graphics (water transfer not vinyl skinned)
* Internal LED blue lighting for the ultimate in-fiction gaming experience
* Custom alloy GAEMS badge below rigid handle
GAEMS and 343 Studios would like customers to enjoy the ultimate HALO 4 gaming experience whether that is individually or with friends during the weekly team campaigns. We believe that this experience will be optimized when HALO players choose to gather together for LAN/WAN party gaming.
Please understand that this is a very limited edition product and that we cannot mass produce the Vanguard at this time before holiday 2012.
