It's November and holiday shopping season is upon us. Already, Black Friday deals are in full swing. Cyber Monday will bring more. The still-impossible-to-get consoles of Microsoft and Sony are the most popular tickets this season. We have some good news today. Walmart will restock Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 consoles today at 12PM ET / noon PT.
It is not easy to find consoles, but it has not been easy to get both Microsoft and Sony consoles. In fact, Walmart was the only retailer that did so in recent times. Today's restock will include both the disc-based PlayStation 5 and its cheaper sibling, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, for $500. Walmart's current offerings on Microsoft include the Xbox Series X at $500 and the Xbox Series X at $500.
We recommend that you log in to your Walmart account before 3PM. To minimize any delays or problems during checkout, make sure that you have the correct shipping and billing information. Keep trying if you don't find the console you want at 3 PM. Walmart releases additional stock every 10 minutes until it is all gone.
We know that buying a console is just one piece of the puzzle. So we've gathered some accessories, game subscriptions and other notable titles to help you make an informed decision. The consoles are not the only thing on sale, but many of these options can be discounted so that you can save money and get the most recent gaming experience. Verge readers can get a 12-month subscription for PlayStation Plus for $38 at Eneba. Use code PLUSYEAR when you checkout. You can add these accessories and titles to your Walmart cart before you go to get a console.
We wish you all the best and have a great time gaming!
