Walmart is offering gamers the chance to get a PS5 and Xbox Series X today, Wednesday, August 25 at noon ET / 9:00 am PT. That’s when the first wave of consoles will be made available, but the retailer has been known to release a few consecutive waves every ten minutes (12:10PM, 12:20PM, etc.) As always, try logging in before things start and Enter your address and payment details to speed up the checkout process. You may have better luck getting a console if you load the site and have the page open in Walmart’s mobile app at the same time.
If you’re looking for the Sony PS5, Walmart has: the $499.99 version with a Blu-ray disc drive for game discs and movies, and also the $399.99 digital version which lacks a disk drive and is therefore cheaper and a bit lighter.
You can fill your cart with a few PS5 games and accessories from Walmart:
Whether you’d rather have an Xbox Series X, or try your luck getting two consoles today, Walmart will have it in stock at 12 noon ET alongside the PS5. This model costs $499.99 and, like the PS5, it has a Blu-ray drive for game discs and movies. It also features a larger 1TB SSD compared to the Series S that comes with 512GB of storage.
We recommend grabbing a second controller while you’re at it, like this one shock blue colored wireless model that costs $59. Otherwise, your next purchase should be an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, which gives you instant access to download a staggering number of games. New subscribers can get their first month for just $1, then it’s $14.99 a month to get online multiplayer, as well as access to Game Pass on both PC and console.
A solid wireless gaming headset can also be something that makes your time gaming more enjoyable. Good luck today!
