Walmart is once again delaying its PS5 orders from shipping and customers are still waiting on dispatches from August 2021.
When it comes to finding a next-gen console, life isn’t easy. Even 10 months after the release of the PS5, Sony’s powerful device isn’t readily available anywhere on the market.
Of course, we do get a series of restocks dropping each week, but each individual resupply is still plagued with issues. Supply is short, and scalpers are still out in full force, trying to resell the consoles for a huge profit.
And while gamers believe that PS5 scalping should be illegal, very little action is being taken against malicious buyers even today. But even when you do get the chance to purchase a console, your troubles don’t end there.
Lately, it would appear that Walmart has been selling PS5 and Xbox consoles that it doesn’t have in stock. And that’s leading to some lengthy waiting times for customers.
Walmart PS5 Orders From August Still Haven’t Shipped
Customers are complaining that Walmart still hasn’t shipped their PS5 orders from August 2021 – and we’re not surprised.
Last month, we discovered that Walmart still hadn’t shipped out consoles from July 2021. By now, we can only hope those customers finally have their PS5s delivered, but others are still waiting.
It appears that Walmart PS5 orders made in early August are still not dispatched, even as we approach mid-September. Users on the PS5restock subreddit are growing impatient as they continue to wait for their next-gen consoles to even ship.
One user displays an order made on August 25 which predicts a September 17 delivery date. But not all buyers are quite as fortunate.
Reddit user ramennoodle-14 alleges that their order from August 12 is currently on schedule for an October 2 delivery.
They’re not the only buyer with an October delivery date either, and many customers are looking to other sources for their PS5 – hoping to cancel their existing Walmart order.
And you’ll definitely need that next-gen console soon, as two of Sony’s biggest upcoming titles are PS5 exclusives!
What’s more, it looks as though the new Call of Duty Vanguard is unplayable on PS4 already.
