Another new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place at Walmart this afternoon for those who are still hunting down Sony's latest console. As we have come to expect with PS5 restocks at the retail chain, Walmart announced in advance when it would be releasing the stock, giving eager customers the chance to prepare their wallets ahead of time. Sadly, and perhaps unexpectedly, the restock again turned out to be quite the mess, which isn't good given that the holiday rush is coming quickly.
Perhaps the biggest issue with this new restock of the PS5 at Walmart today involved Walmart+, which is a membership that the storefront offers. This time around, some customers were led to believe that if they signed up for Walmart+, it would be easier to then snag a PS5 through the store. Sadly, those thoughts were proven wrong for a number of people, leaving many to feel burned for having purchased the membership in the first place.
Outside of this issue, a number of other customers reported other common problems that we have seen in the past. Notably, the Walmart website itself quickly became hit-and-miss for many who were trying to buy the PS5 once it became available. All in all, the restock was somewhat of a disaster, showing that acquiring the PS5 is still a tall task.
Did you happen to try to snag a PS5 from Walmart for yourself today during this restock? Let me know either down in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @MooreMan12.

Hamster Tech Keeps Walmart Running
I'm convinced that the Walmart website is being run by a hamster on a wheel because these PS5 drops are TRASH— green goblin stan account (@doctordooms) November 18, 2021

Walmart+ Doesn't Seem to Help
Classic PS5 problem, @Walmart we thought subscribing to Walmart+ would give us a better chance against scalpers despite being in the line.The one we had in the line magically vanished.Utterly disappointed from this experience. Cancelling our Walmart+ subscription immediately. pic.twitter.com/VLy4rGSaB1— Krishna Katakam (@KrishKatakam) November 18, 2021

More Website Problems
@Walmart you’re website absolutely sucks. Waited in line for a product (ps5) that was already out of stock that entire time yet y’all continued to say y’all had it and put a bogus timer. Waste of money on your membership too.— Void (@OcsherryOrion) November 18, 2021

One Step Closer and I'm About to Break
I am extremely heated right now. So Walmart had the PS5's in stock at 2pm. I'm ready and waiting and once I try to get one, they're outta fucking stock. I really am close to saying fuck this shit for real.— Black Hokage Assistant (@Who_Is_JayMaple) November 18, 2021
