Microsoft Store Glitch Shows Checkout Button on Xbox Series X Listings

This incident made many believe this was a real restock. When loading Microsoft Store’s site, everything seemed normal as usual.
There is no indication in the listing that something is wrong. But, gamers quickly encounter an issue after clicking on the Checkout button.
Almost immediately, an error appears below the said button. This error message states, “Something went wrong. Please try again in a while.”
According to gamers who have fallen for this situation before, this error happened intermittently during the past three days.
Additionally, this is not exclusive to the Halo Infinite Xbox Series X bundle listing. This glitch also affects the standard Xbox Series X console listing.
Gamers quickly identified there was something odd going on with the listing.
