Walmart has PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles online today at 3PM ET


imageUpdate 3:50PM ET, November 5th: Walmart’s restock of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles came and went in about 40 minutes, which seems to be par for the course these days.We saw its newer queue system at play, and while the first 20 minutes seemed to count down correctly, we noticed that the queue began to hang and slow down if it did not drop entirely.While many folks have probably seen the “We are having technical issues” message that spells certain doom, hopefully some lucky ones landed their console of choice.We will continue looking out for more console restocks to give you advance notice whenever possible.

It’s November, and the holiday shopping season is well upon us.Early Black Friday deals have already begun, and there’s sure to be a lot more in store for us come actual Black Friday and Cyber Monday .But the hottest tickets of the season, just as they were last year, are the still-hard-to-get consoles from Sony and Microsoft.Today, we bring some good news for you.

Walmart has just launched its restock of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles, starting at 3PM ET / 12PM PT today, Friday, November 5th.

The consoles are hard enough to come by, but we don’t always get a drop of both Sony and Microsoft consoles at the same time — Walmart has been the only one doing so recently.

Today’s restock will include the disc-based PlayStation 5 for $500 and its less-costly sibling, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition for $400 .On the Microsoft front, Walmart’s offerings for today only include the top-tier Xbox Series X for $500 .

We strongly advise creating or logging in to your Walmart account in advance of 3PM.Make sure you already have your correct billing and shipping information added to minimize potential risk of delays or issues during the checkout process.If you don’t land the console of your choice right at 3PM, be sure to keep trying as Walmart often releases more stock in 10-minute increments until it’s all cleared out.

Since buying a console is only one part of the equation, we have gone ahead and pulled together some key accessories, game subscriptions, and notable titles you might also consider during your purchase.

Many of the options below are on sale or discounted, unlike the consoles, so you can save some money as you step into the latest gaming generation.We’ve even got an exclusive deal for Verge readers on a 12-month subscription to PlayStation Plus, this weekend only or while supplies last, for just $38 from Eneba (use code PLUSYEAR at checkout).If picking up any of these accessories or titles at Walmart, add them to your cart ahead of time so you’re ready to go if you manage to nab a console.

Good luck, and happy gaming!
