The Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition bundle was announced at Gamescom last night (Wednesday) priced at £479.99. Launching on November 15 to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original Halo‘s release, the console’s design is inspired by the Halo universe and is 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 launches on December 8.
However, it’s already near impossible to buy with stock selling out across the US and the UK Microsoft Store currency out of stock. That’s hardly surprising given the Xbox Series X, in general, has been in high demand since its launch in November 2020, but a search for the Halo Infinite limited edition console on eBay has brought up many results of the console being sold for nearly double the recommended retail price.
This isn’t the first time that a new console launch has been plagued with scalpers buying up stock with the Steam Deck the most recent victim until eBay removed all Steam Deck listings.
