How to preorder the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite
So far, Walmart is the only retailer with Xbox Series X Halo Infinite preorders. That said, we suspect preordering the Xbox Series X Halo Infinite console will be as tricky as buying a traditional Xbox Series X.
That means you’ll need to be lightning-fast if you want to get a console in your basket, complete checkout, and receive that much-coveted order confirmation email. So it's worth creating a Walmart.com account ahead of time if you don’t already have one.
Just getting stock in your basket is half the battle. If you’re stuck entering your card information and address details the console could well sell out while you’re typing away. Have all your details pre-saved so you’re ready to go the moment the stock is live.
It’s also worth noting that during regular Xbox restocks, Walmart tends to release inventory in 10-minute intervals, so if the console sells out at a few minutes, it's worth sticking around as Walmart may release more preorder stock shortly.
