Here we go again.

52 Comments

The PS5 and Xbox Series X|S are making another appearance at Walmart today. The retailer has confirmed that it will restock the Xbox Series X and Series S today, March 18, at 11:30 AM PT / 2:30 PM ET, while the PS5 and PS5 Digital will be available to buy starting at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET. Xbox All Access console orders will also be available at 3 PM ET. This is the exact same schedule Walmart used for its most recent console restock on March 4. The PS5 and Xbox will be available for purchase online-only, and you can expect stock to be extremely limited as usual.

We've included the Walmart listings where each console will be available to buy below--you'll want to be ready right at the restock time for a chance of securing one.

Xbox restock: 11:30 AM PT / 2:30 PM ET

PS5 restock: 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET

This is only the latest in a string of console restocks at Walmart, which, as those still trying to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X know well at this point, don't have the greatest track record for success. Walmart has gone the route of announcing its console restocks ahead of time, as it did today, and while this offers hopeful buyers a chance to prepare and be at their computer ready, it gives the same lead time to scalpers. Especially with the PS5, it's not unusual to refresh the page right at the restock time, only to see it already sold out or unable to add to your cart. Sometimes, Walmart will restock in 10-minute increments, so you'll have multiple chances to buy the console--but these continue to sell out near-instantly.

For the best chance at success, you'll want to make sure you are already logged into Walmart.com with your account info up to date, including your shipping address and payment details. This will help checkout--assuming you even get there--go as smoothly and quickly as possible. Overall, buying a PS5 or Xbox Series X is a matter of luck and being ready at the right time.
