If you’re looking for an Xbox Series X, it’s a good idea to check your email inbox. Microsoft last week posted special links to the Microsoft Store that you can use to order an Xbox Series X bundle directly. Microsoft says it has “a limited supply of Xbox Series X bundles” available to “valued Microsoft customers” in the US.
The emails are addressed to Microsoft Store customers, and bundles are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Microsoft limits orders to one bundle per order or two bundles per 30-day period. The links to order a package are unique and tied to a Microsoft account and do not always guarantee that inventory will be available for a purchase.

A wide range of “valued Microsoft customers” appear to be getting the emails, and it could be a way for Microsoft to ensure that some of its stock does not get into the hands of scalpers. The main requirement seems to be that you have previously purchased online from the US Microsoft Store and may even have purchased Xbox-related software or hardware.
If you’re lucky enough to receive an invitation to purchase a bundle, then you can’t just buy the console itself. Microsoft is bundling a game and an additional controller with this offer, and you can choose between Madness 22, GTA V, rust, Far Cry 6, Hasbro family fun package, Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, Insurgent sandstorm, and Diablo 2 risen.
Microsoft Warned earlier this year that the supply of Xbox Series X will be limited until 2022 global chip shortage has influenced various companies for more than 18 months. Automakers had to Cut back production of vehicles, and finding new inventory was almost impossible Graphics cards, PS5s, and Xbox consoles.
Scalpers have also made a bad situation worse by driving up prices. Street prices for PS5, Xbox Series X, and GPU are still through the roof, with an Xbox Series X currently selling for an average of $ 856 on eBay.
