Xbox Series X available for purchase on GameStop

GameStop just took to their Twitter account to inform fans about a new bundle hitting their online store. The bundle includes NBA 2k22, Far Cry 6, Call of Duty Vanguard, and a gift card.

While these items are attractive of their own accord, the bundle has something which will definitely catch the community’s interest. The main attraction of the bundle is the Xbox Series X.

The Tweet includes a link to their eCommerce website. Needless to say, the price itself is quite attractive regardless of the rarity of this sought-after console. Call of Duty Vanguard individually costs $69.99.  The individual copies of Far Cry 6 and NBA 2K22 set the player back by $59.99 each. The gift card is worth $50. Adding on, the Series X itself costs $499.99. Altogether, this bundle costs somewhere around $740.

Both the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 hit retail in November 2020. They are selling like anything and players are finding it extremely hard to get their hands on this title. One primary reason for this scarcity can be the global chip shortage. In fact, all of the industries have been impacted by this shortage.
