Game On! PS5 And Xbox Series X Restock Confirmed, Here's Where And When
Walmart has confirmed on its website that the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will all be available today, November 5th, at 3pm ET. The consoles will only be purchasable through Walmart’s website. It is currently unclear whether consumers will need a Walmart+ membership, but having a membership certainly could not hurt. There is no additional information about the drop at this time.

Consumers who participated in the second restock did not encounter the screen flickering, but instead faced a bevy of other problems. Many consumers were unable to make it past the CAPTCHA verification stage, the website frequently crashed, and consumers who had added the consoles to their cart were often sent back to the beginning of the queue.
There are also problems with shipping. Many consumers who purchased a console this past summer have yet to receive that console (one of our own faced a similar issue when preordering the Switch OLED). Walmart has not commented on why this is the case, but it seems to be a prevalent issue.
Regardless, Walmart appears to be one of the few retailers attempting to consistently stock the consoles. If you miss out on this restock, you may be able to snag one during their Black Friday sales. You will likely want to sign-up for a Walmart+ membership in this case. Members are able to access Black Friday deals four hours earlier than non-members.
