Update 12:25 PM ET, Sept. 23: Walmart’s console addition didn’t get off to a good start. Most people didn’t load the pages, it seems, and the retailer updated its site with a header that reads “Console event needs to be rescheduled.” We will update this post again as soon as we know when the event will take place.
Walmart is hosting a major console restock event today, Sept. 23, at 12:00 PM ET / 9:00 AM PT. It will have the PS5 consoles along with the standard Xbox Series X and the limited edition Halo Infinite-themed Series X.
In case you’re there Halotheme console, try your luck in getting one from this link. In terms of specs, it’s no different from the standard model, but it has a more attractive design, both on the console and on the included wireless controller. Two things to note: it costs $549.99 and costs $50 more than the regular Series X. Another thing is you won’t receive this until the game launches on November 15th.
Or you can try to get the $499.99 Xbox Series X console, with a Blu-ray disc drive, about 800 GB of usable (but expandable) storage, and a wireless controller.
buy Xbox? Consider these add-ons:
For folks eager to get a PlayStation 5, Walmart has both editions of the console available today. You can get the $499.99 version with a built-in Blu-ray disc drive and a DualSense controller. It will also sell the digital version missing a disk drive for $399.99. Both consoles have about 660 GB of usable storage, but they are expandable via their NVMe M.2 slot. If you only want to play PS4 games, you can use a cheaper external USB hard drive.
