If you’ve still looking for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S holdings, chances are you’ve noticed Walmart’s awful new push and hold button.
It does not seem to be easier to get a next-generation console, even though it is approaching 10 months after the first launch of the PS5 and Xbox Series X. Still, both Sony and Microsoft are struggling to keep up with demand, even with inventory levels gets better.
Yesterday, Walmart had a large stock of PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
And then the big retailer went live again with the Limited Edition Halo Infinite Xbox Series X in stock later that day!
And both times, buyers had reason to complain about a new feature on the Walmart website.
Walmart Press and hold “Not working” button
In an effort to combat scalper bots, Walmart has implemented a new push and hold button that buyers must use to pay for a next-generation console.
But consumers are already unhappy with the button for being buggy and not letting them pass. Many users report that they held down the button to no avail.
In a new post on PS5Restock subreddit, user ‘itsnotcalledchads’ expressed disgust at the feature:
“The push and hold button was created by Satan. What an insane nightmare feature on a website. I had the PS5 in my shopping cart five different times today, but I pressed and held, and the button just would not stop coming up again.”

How to get past Walmart’s push and hold button
If you are aiming to get past Walmart’s Press and Hold button, it’s better to use the app than the website. Users report that you have to hold down the button itself until the line fills up completely and then release it.
Even in practice, this does not work every time. Some users claim that the process repeatedly eventually led them to the checkout.
Even when you pay, the problems never end. In fact, Walmart is known for significantly delaying next-generation console orders!
Some buyers are even waiting for Walmart orders to ship in July!
