Walmart Cancels Many PS5 Cyber Monday Restock Orders, Customers Left Furious

Sadly for many gamers, their Walmart PS5 Cyber Monday restock experience just took the wrong turn due to order cancelations.

PS5 is still unfortunately out of stock. The console has already been out in the market for over a year.

Even after that amount of time, Sony has not been able to catch up with demand.

PS5’s reception is so massive that it recently outsold Wii U’s lifetime sales.

This situation has left retailers like Walmart with no option but to have sporadic restocks, some being successful and others rather a complete disappointment.

Unfortunately, Walmart’s recent Cyber Monday PS5 restock ended up leaving many dissatisfied customers.

Customers Are Upset After Walmart PS5 Order Cancelation

Many gamers did not have a happy day after discovering that their Walmart PS5 order from the Cyber Monday restock had been canceled.

Today, many Walmart customers received a disappointing email. Walmart canceled a considerable amount of PS5 orders processed on Cyber Monday.

According to the gamers affected, this was due to quantity limits. The anger from many Walmart customers was palpable.

Especially from those who enrolled as Walmart Plus subscribers to participate in these restocks.

Certainly, it is unfortunate to read a cancelation email after you have celebrated your win. However, many customers received this email but not without a cause.

Numerous gamers tried to purchase more than one console. This resulted in order cancelations for many as Walmart has a one console per customer policy in place.

This is a measure to avoid consoles landing on the hands of scalpers.

Of course, this was not the case for all cancelations. Many gamers received cancelations after purchasing a single unit purely because of insufficient stock on Walmart’s side.

The real problem is online ordering. Ship the dang consoles to the stores. 1 perhouse hold driver license required and entered into a data base and a computer system check to see if you got more than 1. Scalpers won't be able to get more than 2 or 3 with friends help and only 1 at a time.
