The nice-looking Halo: The Master Chief Collection white Xbox One bundle you see above was announced this week during Microsoft's briefing at the Brazil Game Show. It's coming to Brazil (of course) as well as "additional select markets," according to a Microsoft representative.

However, the spokesperson tells IGN that the United States is not one of those additional markets, at least not right now. Microsoft currently has "no plans" to bring the white Xbox One bundle to the US, the representative said, adding that more information will be announced later.

Kotaku Brazil first reported on the special Halo Xbox One bundle, and writes that it will cost R$2000 (about $830) when it releases in early 2015. It includes a white system, matching white controller, and a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.

Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which includes remastered versions of Halo 1-4 complete with multiplayer support and access to the Halo 5: Guardians beta, launches in the US on November 11.

Though this Halo Xbox One bundle is not coming to the US, gamers can pick up a white Xbox One starting this month through the limited-edition $399 Sunset Overdrive bundle. Currently, the Xbox One is only offered in black.
