The PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S will all be back in stock through various retailers on and around Black Friday November 27th, but your next confirmed chance is happening tonight November 25th thanks to Walmart's first Black Friday week restock. We also have some good news on the PS5 restock front in general. Here's what you need to know...
When Will the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S Be Available at Walmart?
Walmart has revealed that stock of the PS5 console and Xbox Series X/S consoles will be available online tonight, November 25th at 6pm PST (9pm EST) via the links below. Walmart will also be launching their biggest Black Friday deals tonight.
- Order the PS5 console at Walmart ($499)
- Order the PS5 (Digital) at Walmart ($399)
- Order the Xbox Series X console at Walmart ($499) / Order the Xbox Series S console at Walmart ($299)
We know the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S restock times because Walmart has plastered them right on the product pages. That brings us to an important point regarding your strategy for getting these consoles before the Black Friday and holiday mega rush. Walmart has been the only retailer that consistently reveals the exact times for an upcoming PS5 restock and Xbox Series X/S restock - and that includes keeping the product pages updated with this information. So by keeping tabs on the links above on a daily basis, you should get plenty of early notice about when your next chance will be. That brings us to another point...
Walmart's PS5 and Xbox Series X/S Restocks Won't Go Smoothly
Each and every time that Walmart but the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S up for sale, the product vanished in seconds. That's not surprising given the low level of PS5 stock and Xbox Series X stock mixed with super high demand. There have also been issues with the site crashing and / or issues with hopefuls adding the PS5 to their cart only to discover that it sold out before they could complete the process. There's no reason to expect that this upcoming restock will be any different. It's still worth a shot, but don't get your hopes up. At the very least you should be signed into your Walmart account and ready to go well before launch time.
More Chances to Buy the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S
If you miss out, all is not lost. As noted, you'll have additional opportunities to score the consoles during the week of Black Friday. We also expect stock to trickle into various retailers randomly over the next weeks and months. In fact, PlayStation chimed in today with some good news on that front:
We want to thank gamers everywhere for making the PS5 launch our biggest console launch ever. Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year - please stay in touch with your local retailers.— PlayStation (@PlayStation) November 25, 2020
