Walmart’s latest PS5 drops hosting has turned “horrible” to some fans. If you weren’t successful in your recent purchase, read more here to find out which stores you need to visit next.
According to a report by Comic, some shoppers have said that the previous Walmart console restock was one of the âworstâ since the PS5 was released last year. Apparently, the last drop didn’t end well for the others.
During another moment, some customers shared their experiences on this event. The majority of them reported that technical issues ruined their purchase of the new console.
To clarify the issues, some said the website crashed during checkout. Others said it even got stuck and some functions were not working properly.
During checkout, customers complained about an issue where they could not add the PlayStation 5 to the cart. As such, many considered waiting for another round of restockings from other stores in the coming weeks.
On Twitter, many citizens have raised concerns about the Walmart PS5 fiasco. One customer said Walmart is a “billion dollar business with a $ 5 server.” Another described the latest PS5 drops as “awful.”

Yet another wrote that it was stuck for 10 to 30 minutes because of the “frozen screen”. He heard people mentioning the increase in timers and he felt Walmart wanted him out of the queue.
