Microsoft unveiled its new Xbox bundle during Gamescom Opening Night Live on August 25.
The console and controller feature an entirely new Halo-themed design, wrapped with a dark metallic paneling complemented by iridium gold. Not only that, but it powers on and off with custom Halo-themed sounds similar to the Halo 4 Xbox 360 console that released back in 2012.
The limited edition bundle will release in November, ahead of Halo Infinite’s release date.
If you’re looking to purchase an Xbox Series X anytime soon, pre-ordering a limited edition Halo one now could be your best chance!
You can find out how to pre-order the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X console below.
Since its launch back in November 2020, the Xbox Series X has been relatively hard to come by. While we still expect stock issues to continue with the Halo Infinite bundle due to its very high demand, some retailers are starting to go live with pre orders.
You’ll want to be lightning fast when checking out and pre ordering; stock is bound to sell out fast.
The Halo Infinite Xbox Series X Amazon pre-order placeholder listing has appeared. It’s expected to go live very soon.

The console will be available on November 15, 2021 – the same date as Halo’s 20th anniversary!
The box contents will be mostly the same as the standard Series X. The only differences are that it will be a Halo-themed redesign of the console and controller, and includes a game download.
