Latest Walmart PS5, Xbox Series X Restock Sells Out In 2 Minutes

Walmart kicked off its Black Friday 2020 sale with a PS5 and Xbox Series X restock that (predictably) sold out immediately.

83 Comments

Update: The Walmart PS5 and Xbox Series X restock listings, which went live tonight, now say the consoles are "out of stock." This change comes shortly after the listings stated they were "temporarily out of stock," which made it unclear whether or not stock would return later tonight. The restock began at 9 PM ET, and the listings showed out of stock by 9:02 PM. It's worth keeping an eye on the listings above just in case, but with the "out of stock" label, it would seem Walmart is fully sold out for now. If you're still looking to buy the consoles, GameStop will have limited stock in stores this Friday.


If you weren't able to snag a PS5 or Xbox Series X in their preorder phases or on launch day, you'll have another chance tonight. Walmart will restock the PS5, PS5 Digital, Xbox Series X, and Series S at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET tonight, November 25. Walmart's main Black Friday sale kicked off at 7 PM ET with a two-hour delay on the console restocks to help accommodate traffic to the site. Walmart will not be selling the PS5 or Xbox Series X in stores, only on Walmart.com, so stay home and keep your mouse finger loose and limber. You will have to be extremely quick in order to secure one, as we saw them go out of stock almost instantly as the Walmart website began experiencing issues during the last restock.

Walmart Black Friday PS5 and Xbox Series X restock

  • Date: Wednesday, November 25
  • Time: 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET tonight
  • Where: Online

Though Walmart's Black Friday ad does not show the digital PS5 or the Xbox Series S, the online listings say both digital consoles will be restocked at the same time as the disc drive versions. If the most recent Walmart PS5 restocks are any indication, all four consoles will sell out fast, so you'll want to give yourself the best chance at snagging one by being prepared. We suggest making sure your Walmart shipping information and payment details are up to date beforehand to help checkout go faster. In addition to keeping Xbox Series X and PS5 orders online-only, Walmart is staying closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. However, Walmart's online Black Friday deals will still be available on Thanksgiving Day and through the holiday weekend. You'll want to check out the full sale, as Walmart is offering some of the best Black Friday game deals.

Major retailers like GameStop and Best Buy have some great gaming deals this year, including Watch Dogs: Legion for only $30--and it includes a free next-gen upgrade. Meanwhile, if you're still debating which next-gen console to pick up, Microsoft has addressed concerns about PS5 performance topping that of Xbox Series X.

Getting the series X on November 10, was a black Friday voodoo deal, oh and the trade in value for series X, I was able to reduce the cost from $750 to $264 bucks from trading in old one X and games.

Overall my purchase was above American mark up, but also got it below, while region hopping and saving not only $750, but less then $499.

So sleep well people, I'll post images of the console In the shower, why because I can.

When you spend hours and hours trying to get a new console that will help you save a few seconds of loading time.

Unless a store is confirming only one console is going to a shipping address, then they’re not actually doing anything to stop scalpers. Just wait until next year and they’ll be available and scalpers will be left with a bunch of systems they can’t get rid of. Unfortunately, that’s just not going to happen though.

Instead of limiting 1 console per account, couldn't Walmart keep tabs on how many consoles were sent to a specific address? It's easy for scalpers to make 40 different accounts, but getting 40 different shipping addresses would be a lot more challenging.

@returnofthebrotha: I never really liked that game i loved Arkham knight and all other Arkham games but City annoyed me and i don't even know why lol. I think it was the lack of npcs around the place just felt too dead like you were going through a movie set where they had sent everyone home lol

@deviltaz35: Arkham City is in my all time favorite games, it felt like a love letter to the animated series with Paul Dini writing the characters again.

the reason why there isnt NPCs is because Arkham city is closed off from Gotham, its nothing but criminals. hence why most of the NPCs you talk to are cops. like the first game. also the ending felt like a close to Paul Dini with his Batman Joker dynamic
comic tie in series was fantastic as well

the one i hate the most was Arkham Knight, didn't like the overuse of the vehicle. and the story took a step back for me.

i think youd REALLY like the PS4 spiderman game, lots of NPCS in a more livley city (althoguht im pretty sure youve played it lol )

@deviltaz35: True, but once you are in it, you get used to it. That Joker at the amusement park has had me stuck for so long, I cannot believe it. I usually plow right through games. lol.

I feel like there should be a limit one console per customer, it might help with the scalper spam buying a bunch or maybe it won't help at all idk. It looks like I'm going to have to wait until next year to get one. I would have loved to have one now though.

@wasteland2058: it doesn't help with bots overall as they have multiple accounts set up to automatically purchase when stock is available. They would have to change the law in regards to bots to really have any changes there sadly.

@EdAl2112: Good luck! I hope you get it. I wish MS did a digital version, but with the X specs. But I have quite a few older xbox games on disc, so I can just play those.

Like Mercenaries. I love that game.

@scotrugby69: Oh as in Mercenaries - Playground of destruction ? That plays great on Xbox one X too . I haven't tried it on Series X yet. I was lucky enough collect that console in store on the 10th here in Oz. Even better i got $300 credit for a 4.5 year old PlayStation Pro 1TB :).

As a tip get the Shock blue controller it is awesome :)

@deviltaz35: Yep. It’s one of my favorites. Mercenaries 2 was ok. I wish someone would make a third one. I know the studio went under, but man would it be cool for a new one.

I loaded 3 seconds after the hour, hit add to cart, got an error, about 10 seconds later it loaded and was out of stock. What a joke...

The question I ask is, why announce it? so all the bots can get set up and buy it in the first 0-0.5 seconds?

@alundith04: Well they don't have to announce it, the bots scripts can be set 24/7 to whenever they are in stock.

but regardless a company like Walmart doesn't really care how these systems go out, as long as they sell lol

@alundith04: Yup, this happened to me on last weeks wave. Same crap, had it in my cart, kept telling me to check my address to make sure it was updated then after a few minutes I get the message telling me it's out of stock. I put all my info ahead of time so I wouldn't have any issues but that didn't help at all, I think Walmarts online store is just crap.

@wasteland2058: I had that happen in Australia with a PS5 was ready to pay then the site crashed and when it finally came back it said no longer available even though i had a booked in slot to purchase lol. The store later apologised to me and said they will have physical units available in store only to purchase here in late Jan early Feb anyway for those that miss out. Unless you really wanted it as a Xmas present for family it's not really that long to wait lol.

Now i am unsure i want a PS5 until they fix the heat issues.

@bigmikeOK: I had no luck trying many times on other websites the past few weeks, but tonight I was able to order a PS5 by selecting my closest Walmart store.

I had all of the information like contact and payment info saved so it took less than 15 seconds to click through, but probably would have missed out if I was typing that info during check out. The trick might be to select the store pick up option so that you're not competing with everyone for the online inventory but I'm not sure...

It was closed out in the first minute for me. Part of me is disappointed but there really isn't anything I want to play on it right now.

I remember the PS4 being much better. It was still hard to find but the scalpers weren't making much. I think I paid $500 for my launch PS4 off Ebay. I wouldn't touch these prices.
