Walmart will restock the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 today. The consoles are difficult to find these days, so any heads up for stock increases can help give you the edge to finding a console to purchase.

The Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S hit virtual shelves at 2:30 PM ET / 11:30 AM PT on March 18. The PS5 drops a half hour later at 3 PM ET / 12 AM PT. The consoles are sold on a first-come, first-serve basis, so make sure to have your browser ready and to start refreshing right as they get back in stock.

All of these consoles represent the next generation of gaming, but they differ in key areas. Make sure to check out our guide on the Xbox Series X vs. Xbox Series S if you need help deciding between the latest Xbox consoles. We also have a spec breakdown of Xbox Series X vs. PlayStation 5.

Finding a console in stock is still incredibly difficult in March 2021 due to chip shortages and other factors. If you want a new console, you'll need to cross your fingers, hit refresh on your browser repeatedly, and hope that you get lucky.
