Good news for our friends across the pond who are still trying to upgrade to next gen: Walmart will have PS5 stock and Xbox Series X stock from November 22nd. They will only be available online but you will be able to get four hours of early access if you are a Walmart+ member. There is a free trial of Walmart+ available but annoyingly it does not give you the early access deals. Membership costs $12.95/month or $98/year.
Here’s the direct link for the PS5 console.
The Walmart PS5 stock is part of their Black Friday deals, traditionally a time to pick up gadgets and tech at knock down prices but unfortunately there are no discounts on either the PS5 of Xbox Series X consoles. Also Black Friday is actually November 25th so they are starting early. You can also pick up twelve months of PlayStation Plus for $39.99, a saving of $20, a Turtle Beach headset for $23. There is also a deal for Call of Duty: Vanguard on either Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5, but the price of that has yet to be revealed.
Walmart will also have a Black Friday deal on the Nintendo Switch. You can pick up a console and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (as a digital download) for $299. The will also have “Special Buy” deals on Nintendo Switch games with the likes of Zelda down to so $35.
If you are in the United States then you might be able to pick up a PS5 from one of these other retailers:
