Here’s the PS5 and Xbox Series X live stream video
We’re live streaming a Q&A about the Walmart PS5 restock disaster (and also Xbox Series X if you click the video above. It was a doozy if you tried to buy a console today. The Walmart pages ran into a serious refresh error after things seemed so hopeful.

Oops. Walmart had a lot of problems on its page today and just about everyone was setup to be disappointed with the results. We haven’t seen more than a dozen people end up with the console during this online restock.
Looks like we’re going to have to do a PS5 and Xbox Series X live stream because the consoles will be in stock at Walmart at two different times today, with the retailer suddenly adding the top-tier new Xbox to the mix (before it was only the PS5 that was to be for sale today).
It’ll likely be exclusive to Walmart Plus members at 3pm EDT / 12pm EDT, although Walmart hasn’t actually said (unless their tweet was a mistake because it currently says Wednesday).
People keep asking if it’ll be Walmart Plus-only. Here’s the answer:
So far, we haven’t seen Walmart indicate that people need to purchase the Walmart Plus membership, which costs about $98 when paid annually or $13 a month. It’s a bit cheaper than Amazon Prime and comes with free next-day and two-day shipping without minimums. Only once did Walmart require this for a PS5 restock (last week).
Note this Walmart PS5 restock is online-only and not being sold in stores.
Walmart PS5 restock today just announced – we’re live blogging it
Walmart just announced that the PS5 will be in stock today at 3pm EDT / 12 pm EDT. At that specific time, we should see PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider send out an alert leading to the Walmart product pages for both the PS5 Disc and PS5 Digital consoles at prices of $499 and $399 respectively.
