Xbox Series X – Halo Infinite Limited Edition Bundle
The Halo Infinite console is the first limited edition Xbox Series X. It was announced in August when Microsoft started taking pre-orders at selected retailers.
The initial batch was quickly snapped up and scalpers looking to cash in on demand for the product started listing it on eBay for massively inflated prices.

The Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition bundle will launch on November 15 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original Halo’s release.
Priced at $549.99 / £479.99, the console’s design was inspired by the Halo universe and it’s wrapped with dark metallic panelling with an iridium gold accent.
It also comes with a downloadable copy of Halo Infinite, which will be redeemable when the game is released on December 8.
Last month, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said current console supply issues will continue into 2022. He told The Wrap that a shortage of chips wasn’t the only thing stopping Microsoft getting as many Xbox Series X/S consoles onto store shelves as it would like.
“I think it’s probably too isolated to talk about it as just a chip problem,” Spencer said. “When I think about, what does it mean to get the parts necessary to build a console today, and then get it to the markets where the demand is, there are multiple kind of pinch points in that process.
“And I think regretfully it’s going to be with us for months and months, definitely through the end of this calendar year and into the next calendar year.”
