Another PS5 And Xbox Series X Restock Is Happening At Walmart Tonight
If you missed this morning's Walmart restock, you'll have another chance to buy the PS5 or Xbox Series X this evening.
Walmart restocked the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X earlier today, but though the first restock is now over, you'll have another chance to buy the console of your choice later today. The next Xbox and PS5 restock at Walmart is tonight at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. As with the first round, the restock will be one hour long, with stock released every 10 minutes throughout the hour.

Walmart seems to have implemented a new method of warding off bots with its console restocks. With this morning's restock, a message popped up asking you to press and hold down a specific button before the console could be added to your cart. I had to do this about 10 times before I got through to checkout, so if you encounter this message, keep trying. Despite some delays with my payment going through, I was able to successfully place an order several minutes after the restock went live, so it definitely seems as though Walmart has more stock available today. Still, patience (and a good deal of luck) is required.
For the best chance at securing a PS5 or Xbox Series X in this evening's Walmart restock, we highly suggest logging into your Walmart account ahead of time and making sure both your payment and shipping info are up to date. (If you're buying for someone else, note that you can't change your delivery address after purchasing.) This will help checkout go as smoothly as possible, as every second counts during a console restock. You'll want to be ready on the listing ahead of time, and don't give up if the console seems to sell out right away--keep refreshing and trying.
This marks the first time that Walmart has held two restocks on the same day, and the retailer is one of the few stores that announces its restocks ahead of time so that hopeful buyers can be prepared. Of course, this gives scalpers a heads up as well. Walmart restocks have been particularly frustrating in the past due to how quickly the PS5 and Xbox Series X sell out, but the 10-minute restock intervals do give you multiple chances at snagging a console. And fortunately, we still have another restock to go this evening at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET.
