The Halo Infinite Xbox Series X has been very well received by fans, and now it’s becoming a flagship on eBay as well.
Just over a month ago, Microsoft announced its Halo Infinite themed Xbox Series X.
Right off the bat, the console’s pre-orders ran out within seconds.
Unfortunately, restocking is rare. Walmart restocked the console for the last time and that was already a week ago.
All of these factors have led to one thing, extremely high prices in the resale market.
Halo Infinite Xbox Series X sells for insane prices on eBay
This console hasn’t even been released yet, but that doesn’t stop resellers from taking advantage of its popularity.
Right now, this limited edition console is fetching prices up to $ 1,400.
Considering that resellers don’t even have the consoles on hand, these are crazy numbers.
Considering the fact that the holiday season is approaching, these numbers could go even higher.
Halo Infinite controllers are also hitting crazy numbers on eBay
Halo Fever isn’t exclusive to the Xbox Series X themed console.
The Halo Infinite Wireless Elite Series 2 controller, recently replenished by Microsoft, suffered the same fate on eBay.
Specifically, these controllers sell for around $ 399 or even more. Namely, it’s 50% above the MSRP price of $ 199 set by Microsoft for the controller.

It is not certain that a new replenishment of this material will occur. The manufacturer indicated some time ago that pre-orders for the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X consoles were over.
Although after that, Walmart restocked some console units.
If you don’t mind Halo fever and just want a standard console, Walmart, Best Buy, Antonline and other retailers are reportedly restocking online soon.
Overall, it looks like the Halo Infinite craze is real, and some are willing to pay a pretty dime for it.
This, however, raises the debate as to whether this is ethical. Are these individual consumers changing their minds or are organized scalpers exploiting genuine fans?
