A Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock has dropped without warning at Xbox.com in the USA, so hurry over there post-haste if you want to secure the console before it’s gone. Which probably won’t be long, all things considered – this special edition of the system is as hard to come by as standard Xbox Series X stock.
Although the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock is more expensive than the normal console at $549.99, it does include a unique, Halo-themed design to go with a digital version of the game itself, an in-game code for the Zeta Sky Armor Coating, and the Chosen Emblem/Nameplate. If you’d been waiting to invest in new-gen until the Master Chief’s latest outing dropped, that makes it a good two birds, one stone situation.
How is the rest of the week shaping up for standard Xbox Series X restock deals, then? Although we might see a drop from Best Buy on Wednesday, Thursday tends to be a safer bet. It’s usually one of the busier days of the week for stock action, and Walmart demonstrates this nicely.
Amazon is a little harder to predict, unfortunately. As per PS5 restock deals, the retailer is very unpredictable… unless you’re based in Amazon UK, in which case drops before 9am BST mid-week are common.

Xbox Series X restocks: hints and tips
1. Be quick – stock moves fast
It sounds obvious, but you’ll need to move quickly if you want to secure your Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock. The deals only lasted a few minutes when they dropped earlier in the week, so it’s unlikely that the next batch will hang around either (we wouldn’t count on the general public being able to get in on the fun, as the consoles are usually gone before the Pro early access is over).
2. Sign in and get your payment details ready
Things can get busy when retailers announce an Xbox Series X restock, and the sheer weight of traffic often makes sites slow down or glitch at the most inconvenient time. That makes getting to checkout as fast as possible a priority. Signing in and getting your payment details ready ahead of time is a good first step, as then you’ll be less likely to hit a snag while fumbling for your card.
3. Keep trying
Even if the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X restock seems to have vanished, don’t give up – it might be an error, or stock could be releasing in waves. Refreshing the page or clicking the ‘add to basket’ button again could put you back in the running.
