Update: Walmart has added new information indicating that there will be no PS5 or Switch OLED consoles available. Xbox Series X consoles will be available through All Access only.
Be ready! A massive gaming event is coming to select Walmart stores on Saturday, December 11. The in-store event will feature games and props. PS5 replenishment and Switch OLED replenishment will not be available. Xbox Series X restocking will be offered through All-Access only. Twitter account Lord Restock was the first to signal the looming drop.
Walmart Gamer Drop – stores and times
Not all stores will participate in next Saturday’s restocking, but you can check which Walmart stores will be restocking via Walmart store locator. The drop will be from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. local time. We contacted Walmart for more information. Unfortunately, this console drop will not include the Xbox Series X Halo console.
It should be noted that Walmart currently has Xbox Series X consoles for sale through All-Access. The plan includes 24 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and requires you to open a new line of credit and pay $ 34.99 / month over a 24-month period.
Last month, Walmart held the most console drops of any major retailer. That said, this will be their first in-store delivery. They are joining Best Buy and GameStop, which have also experienced in-store drops.
If you don’t live in one of the areas affected by this in-store PS5 replenishment, or if you just don’t feel like going to a physical store, be sure to check out our PS5 replenishment center. This comprehensive guide is updated multiple times a day with the latest replenishment information to make sure you never miss a drop.
The PS5 could become an even more desirable console next year, as Sony reportedly launched Project Spartacus to directly challenge Xbox Game Pass. The new service would combine PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now and allow PlayStation owners to access a library of classic and modern games for a monthly subscription.
