Wal-Mart getting largest PS4 shipment to date this weekend

Retailer will have new shipment of consoles available at stores across the country starting at 8 a.m. on Sunday, December 15.

In the market for a PlayStation 4? You may want to consider Wal-Mart, as the retailer announced today that it will receive its largest ever PS4 shipment this weekend.

Systems will be available at Wal-Mart stores across the country beginning at 8 a.m. on Sunday, December 15. Consoles will also be available online while supplies last.

Xbox One systems remain old out at Wal-Mart. Separately, Wal-Mart said today as part of the Xbox One 2 million sales announcement that the company is refreshing its inventory "as fast as we can" to ensure customers can purchase the system for Christmas.

Wal-Mart also announced today that it will launch a Christmas Countdown Savings Event beginning on Friday, December 13 at 8 a.m. Game-specific deals include Call of Duty: Ghosts, Battlefield 4, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Grand Theft Auto V, and NBA 2K14 (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) for $40.

I know this is petty, but I CAN'T REMAIN SILENT ANYMORE!...Hey Eddie...PROOF READ YOUR SHIT!!! Surprising that with how frequent your articles have grammar errors, even when cut n' pasted from other sources, GS hasn't stopped to smack you over the head yet.


I wonder if GS even cares?

I haven't seen either console sitting on the shelves here in Toronto. Seems like as soon as they get a shipment they are out the door. Even WiiU seems to be selling well. Christmas probably has a lot to do with that.

I just got home with my new Ultra HDTV. I bought a GTX 780 Ti for my PC and plugged it in. OH MY GOD! It is glorious. The future is here. Sorry next-gen consoles, you are now officially obsolete.

Local Best Buys have XBones in stock, but no PS4s. Same thing for Walmart and Target. Sony's inability to refill PS4 inventory = Microsoft's success

@g0ldenpr0pet I agree 100 percent.  Everywhere I go Xboxone's are available but no PS4's resulting in the Xbox ones selling out in a very short time.  They stay on the shelves but not for very long!

@humoungousmoth7@g0ldenpr0petI haven't seen any at Fry's Electronics. Gamestop just got a large shipment of XB1 in a couple days ago. It seems these Walmarts are only getting about 10+ units and they are gone within 24hrs.

Not trolling, but I saw 3 xbox ones sitting on the shelf in Wal-mart in Fredericton NB Canada last night... they also told us about the PS4's being there at 7am Friday morning as soon as the doors open... but he was like "Or you get get an Xbox One right nowwww" Um... no thanks. lol... I'm sure they'll get nabbed soon enough. Maybe MS has been delivering more regularly because this store said it was their 1st restock of PS4's since launch.

Microsoft is full of shit too. I can walk into any of the 7 Walmarts within 60 miles of me and there are at least 4 Xbox Ones on the shelves. Makes me sad there are that many Walmarts near me now that I think about it....

All the numbers they shared were units sold to consumers. Both Sony and Microsoft have been clear about that.

@chj2363 The target by my house had 7 Xbox one's sitting on the shelf and about 5 in the warehouse.  The next day when I went back they were all sold out.  Not bad for 500 dollars a pop!

I have four walmarts near me and haven't seen any Xbox 1's. I have seen a few PS4's here and there. Just because you happen to see some in stock doesn't mean it isn't selling.

@mjonk2pcMicrosoft knows how to restock retailers with their products. Those XB1 will be long gone before X-Mas.

@humoungousmoth7@chj2363Yup.. retailers are getting them on shelves, but they aren't staying there long. Not sure how Microsoft is able to pump out so many units so fast. I might be because they didn't released in those other 25+ countries. Because of that, they have more units for NA, Australia, U.K. and a few European countries. People need to remember that XB1 is REGION FREE. So if you're in Europe, you can buy one from U.K. if you live in another country.

I just hope the PS4 units are also replenished in the UK.  I pre-ordered a while back and its hit-or-miss as to whether I'll get my PS4 in time for xmas or not.  Can't do much about it 'suppose, just have to see what happens.

"Xbox One systems remain old out at Wal-Mart."

LOL. "old out"?   Is that a way of saying it's sitting too long on shelves?
