If you’re still looking for a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, Walmart reports that it will be selling both consoles in select stores on Saturday, December 11.
In-store sales are part of a “sponsored by the company”Gamer DropAccording to a new page on Walmart.com. The retailer does not explicitly say that the PS5 or Xbox Series X will be sold during the event. Nonetheless, the page notes: “Join us in store on Saturday, December 11 to stock up on must-have video game accessories and earn exclusive gear.” Next to the text is a photo of a PS5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch OLED console.
In addition, Walmart has created a catalog for the event, and it also features the PS5 and Xbox Series X in promotions. However, the event only occurs in select Walmart stores. To find out which ones, go to the retailer’s Gamer Drop to place and plug in a postal code. Walmart also cautions that store locations are subject to change.
We’ve reached out to Walmart for more details on the upcoming event, and we’ll update the story if we have any news. In the meantime, the company’s website promises that the Gamer Drop will offer “great prices” for many titles on the Nintendo, PlayStation and Xbox platforms. The event catalog also includes PC gaming hardware, including laptops and desktops.
If you participate, be prepared for the long lines. Past in-store sales of the PS5 and Xbox Series X at other retailers have caused some desperate consumers to camp the night before.
