You might finally be able to pre-order the Xbox One X later this week, according to a potential leak.

For some fans, this might be slightly confusing—wasn’t the console already available for pre-order? Yes and no. During last month’s Gamescom conference, Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, a special version of the console that comes branded with the code name the Xbox One X had in development. Pre-orders of the Scorpio version of the console sold out soon after the reveal.

If the rumors are true, however, this next release will be for the standard version of the Xbox One X console, which has not yet been available for pre-order.

The impending pre-order date appeared on advert on Walmart’s site, and was captured in a screenshot by ThisGenGaming. According to the ad, pre-orders will open up on Thursday, September 21st. You won’t be able to grab them online, however—you’ll have to physically walk into a store to place the order. Since Walmart recently faced issues with online pre-orders of the SNES Classic, it’s likely that the retailer is taking steps to prevent another such fiasco.

The fine print also states that customers will be limited to two consoles each and suggests that there are “limited quantities available,” which seems to hint that there won’t be many units available. If you really want to get your hands on an Xbox One X, you’ll likely want to plan on showing up at the store in person as soon as pre-orders go live.

The Xbox One X is set to release on November 7th.
