In celebration of Halo‘s upcoming 20th anniversary (as well as the upcoming release of Halo Infinite), Microsoft has announced that they’re releasing a limited edition Halo-themed Xbox Series X console as well as a special Halo-themed Xbox Series X controller.
While the controller is amazing, it’s the Xbox Series X that’s the real prize here. Not only does it look incredible (the console’s metallic panels are accentuated with gold trim, stars, and Halo-themed designs), but given how hard it is to currently find an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5, any opportunity to purchase a next-gen console is more valuable than ever at the moment.
So while you shouldn’t get your hopes up when it comes to actually being able to grab one at retail prices, here’s what you need to know about pre-ordering the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console:
Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition Console Pre-Order
You can pre-order the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console from major retail outlets starting right now. So far, we’ve spotted pre-order pages at the Microsoft Store, Target, and Walmart, which you can find below:
As you’ve probably quickly realized, it seems like this special edition console is currently sold out via every outlet that is offering it. There’s currently no word on when or if the console will be restocked via those outlets, and there’s also currently no word regarding if and when Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, and other major retailers will start selling the bundle. However, I’d advise keeping an eye on those websites as well as Twitter accounts like Wario64’s for up-to-the-minute updates regarding availability. We’ll also be sure to inform you if we learn anything more about the console’s availability.
Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition Console Specs
As far as we can tell, the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console is a standard Xbox Series X console with no altered specs.
However, the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console does include an Ultra High Speed HDMI cable as well as a Halo Infinite Limited Edition Xbox Series X controller and a copy of Halo Infinite. None of that will necessarily make your Xbox perform better, but it’s a great overall package.
Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition Console Release Date and Price
The Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console is currently scheduled to be released on November 15. If you’re wondering how that will work given that Halo Infinite isn’t being released until December 8, it seems that the copy of the game you receive with your limited edition Xbox Series X is digital and won’t be accessible until December 8.
Microsoft has also confirmed that the MSRP for the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Limited Edition console is set at $549.99. That’s about $50 more expensive than the base Xbox Series X, though you’ll of course have to pay much more than that for it if you end up having to go through resellers.
