Halo trilogy theme on XBL

Xbox 360 dashboard decoration features "never-before-seen scenes" from the Halo games; file available for 150 Marketplace points ($1.87).

by

Halo fan geekdom has jumped another spot again today, as Microsoft has announced that a Halo trilogy theme for the Xbox 360 is now available on Xbox Live. The theme, which adds images to the background of Xbox 360 dashboards, costs 150 Marketplace points ($1.87) or is free for those who preordered the Halo 3 Xbox 360 faceplate. Xbox Live's Major Nelson reports that the theme features "never-before-seen scenes" from the Halo trilogy, including "all three iterations of the Master Chief's iconic Spartan armor."

I'm glad that it isn't 1.99 (trying to make you think it's only a dollar)

give me a break. you can find pictures on 360style.net that can be transfered to your xbox via a jump drive, plus they're really well done

I hate the fact that stuff like this isn't free. So many themes but all cost Microsoft points.

I'm probably just going to purchase the Halo 3 Faceplate and get the download with that.

I down loaded it, it look like crap, and I have Hi Def. Your better off with the Halo3 theme. It has much better color. I switched back to that.

Not bad for that price, I suppose.

@Flat_Line_____ YOU CAN VIEW THE PICS & THEME at XBOX.com , review it before buying it - in that way you won't complain . Some smart guy even posted the link for those of you who buy the theme's without knowing what you are buying - it'd be much easier if x360 had a browser or somethin so that you can view it in you XBL-dashboard , but MS doesn't work that way so check it out youself . I personally think for such a BIG franchise as HALO - the theme is crap . Best theme & pics so far are the 4-GRAW themes.

My current XBox background is the picture of Anakin Skywalker that has the shadow of Darth Vader on the "igloo" , from Episode 1 poster. It goes VERY nicely with the XBox dash.

...On the other hand, the Halo 3 theme is done very well...but thats about it...that and the GRAW/GRAW 4 themes...all the rest are wastes imo.

DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT. I REPEAT, DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT. IT'S PURE GARBAGE. Sorry, I hate it when people use caps to get attention like that, so it kinda makes me a hypocrite, but I just had to warn you all. It's very poorly done at best.

Here is a crazy idea but, wouldn't it be great if MS let us see what they actually LOOK like in the menu where you buy em? I dunno but I don't see what it would hurt.... I know that some of the themes will give a preview of what the artwork is but half the time for any themes or even gamerpics you don't even get to see wth you are actually buying..... until you buy it. I'm just sayin It's too bad that we have to be in a game site forum having to ask for pics from outside sources ya know? ;) And I have to say, I'm kinda with the majority here in that things like this should be Really CHEAP (like maybe .50 cents even) and free more often.

You probably can find these screens on the internet some where but to charge for this. What is the point?

no theme is worth 150 ms points. they should all be free in my opinion.

People pay for mobile phone covers. People pay for artwork. Why is it surprising that people will pay two dollars for some artwork and to customize their latest gadget? Sounds alright to me.
