Walmart+ PS5 & Xbox Series X Restock Ends With Mixed Results – Feb 24

Walmart’s latest PS5 and Xbox Series X restock for its Walmart+ subscribers ended up being a mixed bag.

The restock situation for both current-gen consoles is not ideal, even though it has been over a year since both devices launched.

To date, gamers need to wait for online or in-store restock of PS5 and Xbox Series X units if they want a new console.

Gamers’ concerns grew as restocked suddenly stopped after the second week of January. Since then, almost all retailers stopped usual restocks, and just minor drops took place.

Fortunately, after a long hiatus, most retailers are back to the restock scene. Walmart is one of these retailers that hosted a drop for its Walmart+ subscriptions.

Now that the restock is over, gamers have mixed reactions about it.

Customers reported being stuck in the queue for a while. Sadly, many could not go further than that and later on received out-of-stock messages.

I was very disappointed that the Xbox drop was tied to the “all access pass”. You can find that terrible enslavement deal available all the time.

Was able to finally get my son his Christmas present after a 25-minute wait in the queue! Now hopefully it will not be stolen by FedEx driver this go round. Fingers crossed and I'm going to try to pick it up at the FedEx headquarters locally.

Snagged a ps5 after 25 minute wait. I clicked on purchase the second the clock turned over. Crazy how fast these things sell
