It’s tough laying your hands on one of the hottest products on the planet. Demand for next-gen consoles like theand continues to greatly outstrip their meager supply, as evidenced by the long queues and fast sellouts whenever inventory arrives at a store. Gamers have been waiting for more than four months to get one for themselves. But every once in a while there’s an opportunity to score a box, and this week might be your shot.
Most of the time, we have barely an hour’s notice about upcoming inventory drops, but we’ve known the March 25 restock has been coming for a week now. Walmart.com and the Walmart app will have the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on sale starting at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) on Thursday, March 25. There’s no indication, however, that the PS5 will be available in this round.
The consoles are available for delivery only. And be prepared: Based on past experience, you may end up waiting in a queue, only to face the dreaded “sold out” message.
You can improve your odds by opening the store pages in multiple web browsers and on other devices (your PC, your phone, your tablet).
