Walmart restocked both PS5 game consoles and Xbox Series X from Sony and Microsoft on Wednesday 9 pm ET. By 9:02 pm, all stocks were sold out. Walmart had indicated that its Black Friday sales of PS5 and Xbox Series X would be only available online. Preorders had also sold out very quickly. So Walmart had indicated that it would restock these consoles before Black Friday.
The listings say that the consoles are “temporarily” out of stock. There is no indication to when there would be a restock. However, it is confirmed that even after possible restocks, the consoles will be available only online. Actually, Walmart stores will remain closed on Thanksgiving.
Many gamers and shoppers have missed out on the pre-sales of these consoles from some large retailers. However, there could be consoles available in-store as well online with other retailers. Customers have to stay home, browse a lot and be quick in payments to get one of these consoles. One of the main reasons for online shopping was to increase safety and promote social distancing on Black Friday as the coronavirus has been spreading across the US.
Keep browsing and you may find a good black Friday deal at GameStop, Best Buy, Walmart or Amazon. Who knows what’s in store for you?
