If you still want to buy an Xbox Series X or PS5, you have another chance today through Walmart.

Walmart’s next-generation console updates are known to be particularly frustrating for aspiring buyers. While it’s convenient that the store has announced its inventory in advance, it also gives scalers plenty of time to prepare, and every previous console update at Walmart has sold out in less than a minute. Securing a PS5 or Xbox Series X at Walmart is a matter of luck, but you can improve your chances by logging in to your Walmart account in advance and having both your payment and shipping addresses updated. It minimizes the chance of it selling out while you are at the checkout.
Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X continue to be notoriously difficult to find in stock, despite being almost three months out from launch. While Sony has not spoken specifically about the PS5 recovery situation in 2021, Microsoft recently told The New York Times that it expects Xbox Series X shares to be limited through at least June, so we expect the same to apply to the PS5. Online retailers continue to offer occasional inventories like the one happening today, but no advance notice is usually given. It seems that many of the big retailers received more PS5 and Xbox shares recently, when we saw a series again at the end of January on Best Buy, Target, Walmart, GameStop and even Amazon. We continue to track Xbox and PS5 updates in our inventory statuses.
