Walmart’s Early Black Friday 2021 PS5 & Xbox Series X Restock Plans May Have Leaked

According to recent leaks, Walmart is apparently preparing a PS5 and Xbox Series X restock for Black Friday.

Most gamers certainly await Black Friday season. As usual, current-gen consoles are one of the most wanted electronics for this date.

This year, in particular, with all the scarcity going on, there is a huge expectation for restocks.

Walmart is aware of this, and if some recent leaks are true, the retailer has plans for this Black Friday.

And if you’re looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X restock sooner than that, here’s what drops are coming this week:

Walmart’s Rumored Black Friday PS5 & Xbox Series X Restock

According to a leaked image of what seems to be Walmart’s internal communication, the retailer is planning a PS5 and Xbox Series X restock for Black Friday.

Walmart is planning three main Black Friday events as per its website.

In detail, it seems that the PS5 and Xbox Series X restock will be reserved for Walmart’s third Black Friday event.

Walmart+ members will receive early access to Black Friday deals. You can find out how to get a PS5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch OLED with the Walmart Plus Membership here.

This is in line with what other retailers like Best Buy or GameStop are doing with their respective memberships.

Almost certainly, the best window to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X during this Walmart Black Friday restocks will be given to Walmart+ subscribers. Although, this is not always the case.

Not long ago, Best Buy customers complained about the retailer giving access to all public during a PS5 restock.

As well, membership does not immediately assure that customers will be able to purchase a console.

Not long ago, GameStop hosted several Halo Infinite hardware restocks for its Pro members.

This led to a whole week of disappointed GameStop customers, as most Pro members were not able to get a console.

A Walmart+ membership could be useful during this rumored upcoming Black Friday restock. But, be aware as there are no guarantees!

That should last all of half a second before the scalpers bots buy them all.

Walmart will have them for sale. But it will be online only. This image is from the handheld when scanning a UPC. Event 3 will be black Friday. The day after Thanksgiving

I was fed up chasing down a PS5 months ago. This whole situation had been going on for a year now with no end in sight. As far as I am concerned Sony BLEW it big time. I won't even think about buying a PS5 again until I can walk into the store of my choosing and just buy it. Sony should have offered pretty orders right from the beginning rather than screw over millions of gamers that wanted the new console but can't get it.

@Fino Caraco, you guys do realize that there's a chip shortage at the moment affecting all industries right? It doesn't help that scalpers are exacerbating this issue and rogue retailers buying the PS5 only to mark up the price.

The day that I walk by a shelf and see a PS5, I'll decide whether I still want to buy one. Until then, Sony and Walmart can take a flying leap if they think I'm going to go scavenging for one. Got my son a nice gaming PC last Christmas when the PS5 corruption started, he's not missing having a PS5. He'll be able to buy his own by the time Sony figures out how to build and maintain inventory.
