Update: Game is now sold out of the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition console. Make sure to check our where to buy guide for the latest stock updates on this hard-to-find console.
Microsoft announced an Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition last night during the keynote Gamescom 2021 live stream, and the console is now available for pre-order at Game.
Releasing on November 15 to mark both the 20th anniversary of the launch of the original Halo: Combat Evolved as well as the upcoming release of Halo Infinite in December, the console is sure to become a collector's item so you best be quick if you want one.
Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition: £479 @ Game (opens in new tab)
The gaming-specific retailer is currently taking orders of the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite Limited Edition in a variety of bundles. The console is also available standalone but is likely to sell out first, so be quick!
Game is selling the console standalone at its RRP of £479, but it's also bundled it together with a load of additional extras. Unfortunately, some of these packages contain items that can best be described as pointless filler, such as an Xbox-brand t-shirt.
This cheeky tactic of including unnecessary items is one that Game has employed before with previous Xbox Series X restock, so it's a shame to see the retailer persisting with the habit here. The standalone console is likely to sell out first, so if you really want a Halo Infinite console you might have to settle for a bundle.
At least of the bundles include the newly announced Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 - Halo Infinite Limited Edition (opens in new tab), although this pad retails for £179 on its own so bundled with the console you looking at paying upwards of £674 — which is an eye-watering sum.
The limited-edition console sports dark metallic paneling accented by iridium gold. A star pattern runs along the upper body, which is apparently the same array seen from the surface of Zeta Halo. The top vent's green accents have been swapped for Cortana-themed blue, and the console will have custom Halo on/off sounds. It included a custom Halo-themed controller as well.
