Walmart keeps trying, but its PS5 restocks keep disappointing its customers.
The situation with current-gen console availability is slowly improving. Although, not to a point in which demand is met.
Gamers all around the world are still not able to easily get a PS5 console.
Retailers like Walmart are restocking as fast as they can. But, amidst this frenzy, restocks are not going as well as gamers would like.
This is especially true for Walmart. Lately, its PS5 restocks have been less than a desirable shopping experience.
Without a doubt, the latest PS5 restock at Walmart followed the same fate.
Walmart’s PS5 Restock Was Plagued With Issues Once Again
Walmart announced a PS5 restock for November 9, and it was as disappointing as many expected.
Customers complained once again about the queue timer implemented. Namely, this timer was introduced in Walmart’s previous PS5 restock.
This time around, the timer displayed a one-minute wait time and stayed stuck there for over 20 minutes, according to some upset customers.
Other gamers complained about a similar timer issue present on the last restock.
The timer jumped directly to one hour of wait time and then informed customers there was no more stock available.

Walmart has literally been the worst place to get a PS5 (aside from scalpers)
The timer also provided erratic times, slowly counting down just to reset itself minutes later.

Some customers still believe that there is bot intervention, even though Walmart has implemented a queue system to avoid this.
Moreover, some customers pointed out how many times these Walmart PS5 restocks have ended in utter disappointment.
This is Walmart’s fourth PS5 restock in November, and none so far have left customers satisfied.
Even though the restock left many frustrated, some lucky gamers shared their joy after finally getting the PS5 during this Walmart restock.
