We’re still seeing short or no supply of PlayStation 5 consoles at many retailers and going weeks between new nationwide restocks. Hopefully, this summer will prove more fruitful, especially now that retailers like Amazon are taking invite requests to buy a PS5. As for a more imminent restock, Walmart has one scheduled for today that looks sizable.
If you’re a Walmart Plus subscriber, you will have the chance to queue up for the standard $499 disc drive-equipped PS5, the $399 PS5 Digital Edition, and the new $549 PS5 bundle containing Horizon Forbidden West — as well as a similar bundle with the PS5 Digital Edition for $449 — at 3PM ET / 12PM PT today. This is yet another restock that’s exclusive to paying Walmart Plus members, though, since we have advance notice, you have time to pay the minimum $12.95 for one month of membership ahead of the drop. Yes, you get other perks from Walmart, like free deliveries, but we’re ultimately just paying to play the restock game. Though, remember that you can always cancel the subscription once you land your shiny new console.
Sony’s flagship next-gen console, which includes a disc drive, allows you to play both digital and physical games for the PS4 and PS5.
