It looks as though Walmart will be your best bet when searching stores for a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.
Over the last 6 months, gamers have been desperately struggling to get hold of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Despite regular stock waves arriving with each new week, it’s still challenging to find your next-gen console.
Even when stock is back at certain retailers, high demand and the abundance of scalpers mean that the consoles are gone in seconds. Thankfully, there’s one way that you’ll always be able to beat a bot to your PS5 or Xbox Series X/S.
Buying a console in person is always the best bet, especially with some retailers taking weeks to ship the next-gen consoles! And, as the global pandemic begins to ease with the rollout of vaccinations in the US, there’s one retailer that may have stock in-house.

Walmart PS5 & Xbox Series X/S Restocking in Stores?
According to a new report from restock tracker GYX Deals, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S are starting to arrive at Walmart.
This time, it looks as though it may be possible to get hold of a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S by simply heading into Walmart stores. However, there are a few things to bear in mind.
Firstly, GYX Deals reports that PS5s and Xboxs are arriving in Walmart stores next week, but the restocking is a bit hit or miss. Every 2 weeks, the company will reportedly ship out to its stores, adding more stores every week.
Because of this, Walmart’s online drops will be rarer, as the company aims to make sure it has supply in every store by the beginning of August. However, the insider delivering this information is doing so against Walmart’s wishes.
The company reportedly doesn’t want to cause a frenzy and have to return to its terrible online orders. But your local Walmart may soon have PS5 or Xbox Series X/S stock in-house.
It’s definitely worth checking out, especially for those still searching for the next-gen consoles. And if you want an easy, lightning-fast way to check online stock levels, take a look at these PS5 stock trackers:

It’s worth noting that so far, Texas appears to be the place to look for Walmart’s PS5 restocks. But if what GYX Deals is saying proves to be correct, the stock may soon be arriving all over the US.
And although PS5 stock shortages will apparently continue until next year, Xbox has better news. After all, Microsoft reports that the Xbox Series X/S stock shortage is nearly over!
