Walmart In-Store Gamer Drop Event For PS5, Xbox Series X, Switch OLED – December 11 (Updated)

It seems that Walmart could be the latest retailer to offer a PS5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch OLED in-store with its Gamer Drop event.

If you’re still on the hunt for a next-gen console, Walmart could be the one to watch this holiday season. With only limited time to get your hands on a device before Christmas, demand is at an all-time high right now.

Thankfully, some retailers are already teasing PS5 and Xbox drops this Christmas. And we’re certain that many more will be putting stock live in the coming weeks.

In the meantime though, we just got new word from Walmart regarding an in-store ‘Gamer Drop’ event. And it seems that PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch OLED consoles could be up for grabs!

Walmart Gamer Drop Sale: PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch OLED – December 11

One of our best shots at a next-gen console drop this year could be Walmart and its Gamer Drop sale on December 11.

In an exciting reveal, Walmart is announcing an exclusive Gamer Drop sale on December 11. Here, the retailer is offering what looks to be significant stock of video game accessories, titles, and even consoles.

Although Walmart isn’t officially confirming that it will have stock of PS5, Xbox Series X, and Nintendo Switch OLED consoles, each features heavily in the Gamer Drop advertisements.

With that in mind, it looks as though this could be another chance to snatch up stock in-store. Recently, we’ve been seeing gamers camp out overnight outside retailers that were offering in-store drops.

UPDATE: Walmart is now confirming that no consoles will be sold during its Gamer Drop event, despite advertising the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Switch OLED heavily in the marketing.

And we imagine that there will be a similar situation on December 11.

Here’s how to buy a PS5, Xbox Series X, or Nintendo Switch OLED from Walmart!

Bear in mind that Walmart just canceled many Cyber Monday orders of next-gen consoles. The retailer is also known for selling consoles that it doesn’t have yet, which may well have been the case here.

However, if you’re buying a console in-store for the Gamer Drop, at least you won’t have to deal with Walmart’s insane waiting times for next-gen delivery.
