5:30pm update: The Walmart PS5 restock has officially sold out, according to the notice posted on the US retailer’s website. It took two hours for PS5 inventory to sell out, as it kept coming back in waves every ten minutes. Xbox Series X was in stock too, 30 minutes prior to the Sony console, but it was more limited, selling out in a half hour.

Walmart PS5 and Xbox restock tips
Both next-gen consoles will be up for grabs, the first, Xbox, starting at 2:30pm EDT, according to Walmart. The PS5 restock happens at 3pm EDT, just 30 minutes later.
“The items will only be available for delivery,” a Walmart spokesperson told TechRadar. In other words, you shouldn’t show up to Walmart retail stores to try to buy or claim your console. Unlike the recent Target and Best Buy PS5 restock, it’s not an in-store pick-up situation.
The Xbox restock is actually going to happen in two phases in case you miss it. First, the standalone console will be available today and the time is set for 2:30pm EDT. It’ll be available again next week, too, on March 25 at 3pm EDT as part of Microsoft’s finance plan, known as Xbox All-Access.
Walmart hasn’t officially shared how much console inventory it has of (we know that Amazon has 46,000 PS5 consoles in stock, although the original scheduled time was pushed back). But we do know you’re basically buying a place in line – buyers from the drop two weeks ago are still waiting for PS5 shipments.
PS5 restock stores in the US
We’ve been getting the Twitter restock alerts out there faster than PS5 restock apps, – and we’re doing this for free. Of course, you’ll still need to be fast to buy the Sony console. For example, the PS5 restock at Target sold out in less than 15 minutes. We saw something similar with the Xbox restock at the same time.
