Pre-orders for PS5 Walmart are in stock – sort of. It is the only US retailer to periodically stock the new PlayStation. You need to go to the link below and keep updating.
Walmart has two PS5 pre-order pages:
Try to grab both versions. It might be your only chance to get your hands on a PS5 before 2021, and no, you won’t see a cheap price during Black Friday 2020. No US retailer needs to discount the PS5 this year. Act quickly.
PS5 pre-order Walmart tips
1. Keep refreshing – even if PS5 is ‘out of stock’
The Walmart PS5 pre-order page says “Out of stock” in red text. That is true, but it is also a lie. We saw this with new AirPods on Black Friday. It is sold out for a second and the next comes back in stock.
2. Stay tuned via Twitter
We document the entire experience and try to find more PS5 consoles in stock.
Keep trying for PS5 pre-orders, folks. Walmart routinely does this – it’s there and it’s gone. It is there and it is gone. We saw this with new AirPods on Black Friday. I’m following PS5 Walmart pre-orders here: https://t.co/fRS0JoRsxM https://t.co/QFrdouEQPLSeptember 18, 2020
Grab either version of the PS5 pre-order
Don’t be picky at this point. Many people argue between the PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition. Right now, if you want it in 2020, you can splurge on the more expensive PS5 Standard Edition. It’s $ 100 more, but worth the money in our estimation, as physical games often get cheaper in the long run.
Log in to Walmart in advance
At the time you read the title of point # 3, the original PS5 pre-orders were sold out. That’s how fast this new PlayStation console sells. It sold out in seconds, not minutes.
5. Get someone to help you buy it
How much do your friends and family love you? Having a friend try to get you a PS5 pre-order isn’t a bad idea when the website could be down for you, but for someone else.
Walmart will have PS5 pre-orders, which will be a relief for anyone who hasn’t been able to find the new Sony PlayStation 5 in stock for the past 24 hours.
PS5 will be “available to purchase from 6:00 PM PT / 9:00 PM ET on Thursday, September 17,” according to the official Walmart PS5 pre-order page description. In other words, this is not an exercise.
Here you can find the two PS5 editions on sale in a few moments:
Walmart may be your only chance to pre-order the PS5, but you’ll have to act quickly. The PS5 sold out in seven minutes last night and many gamers couldn’t find the system anywhere in stock.
That doesn’t bode well for Black Friday 2020, where PS5 deals won’t exist. In fact, you’ll be lucky enough to have the PS5 in stock before 2021, as business is. You won’t be able to go to the store and find the system for weeks or months if the history of the console launches repeats.
