Halo Infinite Xbox Series X console: GameStop opens its pre-orders today, but there’s a caveat

The upcoming release of Halo Infinite only has the demand for the constantly sold out Xbox Series X, and the new limited-edition Halo Infinite Series X console. GameStop has its pre-orders open Tuesday at 8 a.m. PT (11 a.m. ET), but the first hour is for GameStop Power Up Rewards Pro Members.

As previously noted by @GYXdeals GameStop will reportedly offer the limited edition controller on Wednesday and then repeat Halo’s console offering on Thursday — again, only for Power Up Rewards Pro members.

The new limited-edition Xbox Series X features a stunning Halo Infinite design and comes with a matching controller and a digital copy of the game. The console bundle will be released on November 25 for $550, while Halo Infinite itself will be released on December 8.

The Xbox Series X Halo Infinite limited-edition bundle costs $550, a $50 premium, but you do get a copy of the game. 


We will continue to monitor the availability of the new Xbox Series X limited-edition bundle. In the meantime, here’s the current status of console bundle pre-orders.

Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Bundle Preorders

GameStop now periodically replenishes the Halo Xbox Series X bundle, but now reserves the first order for PowerUp Rewards Pro members only.

Walmart’s Xbox Series X Halo Infinite bundle went up for pre-order on August 25 and sold out quickly. Walmart generally announces its console additions in advance, and if it does another round for the Halo Series X console, we’ll include that information here as soon as we have it.

There’s an offer for the Xbox Series X Halo Bundle at Amazon, but pre-orders haven’t gone live yet. At this point, it’s unclear whether Amazon will have the bundle in stock before launch.

An Xbox Series X Halo Infinite bundle list is also live at Best Buy, but like Amazon, we haven’t seen any pre-orders go live there yet. It’s unclear if Best Buy will open pre-orders for this console bundle before its release date.

Pre-orders went live (and sold out) on the Xbox Store on August 25, but you can check availability below.

Pre-orders went live at Target on August 25 and sold out quickly. Below you can check the current availability.

Scalper prices have already spiraled out of control, with offers on eBay over $1,500 for the Halo Xbox Series X bundle. It’s not surprising that resellers had a heyday with the limited-edition bundle, given how the past year has gone with next-gen console additions, but it’s a disappointing reality nonetheless. As always, we recommend buying the console bundle at list price if possible.

In addition to the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite limited-edition console, Microsoft is releasing a Halo Infinite limited-edition Elite Series 2 controller on November 25. This gamepad has a different design from the one in the console bundle; instead, it’s green with a Master Chief themed design and an orange D-pad. The limited edition controller is exclusive to: GameStop and the Microsoft Store.

Seagate and Razer have together partnered with Microsoft to produce their own Halo-themed gear. Seagate’s Halo Infinite Special Edition Xbox Game Drive features a similar Master Chief design in Halo green and will be available in October for $100 (2TB) or $160 (5TB). Meanwhile, Razer has a new headset option for Xbox players with the Halo Infinite Edition Kairo Pro, which matches the game drive design and supports Xbox Wireless and Bluetooth 5.0 for low-latency gaming. It retails for $170 and you can pre-order it now. Both products will be released in October.
