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, and a good (though small) sign is that Walmart has a PS5 event coming up today.
If you’re a Walmart Plus subscriber, you will have the chance to queue up for a standard $499 disc drive-equipped PlayStation 5 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.
