PS5, Xbox Series X and S stock to go live again at Walmart
Get a regular ol' base console and controller at Walmart today (if you can).
Update: We've been seeing flickering stock for both Xbox Series S, while the Xbox Series X and PS5 appear to be sold out.
Walmart is getting next-gen consoles back in stock at 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, giving gaming fans yet another chance to maybe snag a console ahead of the holidays.
The U.S. retailer says that stock for both PS5s, the Xbox Series X, and the Xbox Series S will be available online only. The Xbox Series S is available for $299 and the Series X is available for $499. The regular PS5 is available for $499 while the PS5 Digital Edition will be up for $399. Walmart also notes if you're able to grab one, it'll arrive after Christmas Day. Better later than never, we suppose?
A lot of the stock we've seen lately have been in the form of expensive bundles, so if you just want the base console with a controller, now is your chance. Get in before they sell out again! More stock of both next-gen consoles has hit the market in recent weeks, both from Sony and Microsoft and third-party retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Gamestop. Unfortunately, thanks to scalpers and the pandemic limiting in-person stock, all four consoles have been tough to find. Xbox CFO Tim Stuart even stated that users can expect shortages deep into 2021.
Sony has debuted its next-generation PlayStation 5, with unprecedented demand across the globe. The new gaming console pushes 4K resolution gaming up to 120 frames-per-second (FPS) delivering the best experiences across a blockbuster exclusive lineup.
Xbox Series X is Microsoft's new flagship, as its most powerful console with over 12TF GPU performance and a custom SSD. It boasts up to 4K resolution and 120 FPS, full backward compatibility across four generations, and ray-tracing support.

Experience next-gen gaming for less.
Microsoft serves the next-generation for less with its budget-friendly Xbox Series S. The console packs the same high-performance CPU and SSD technology as Xbox Series X, while scaling back the GPU and removing the disc drive.
