The first PS5 and Xbox Series X restock of November is about to happen at Walmart, and if you follow our PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider – follow and turn on notifications – you’ll get an alert when the console is in stock today. Both Sony and Microsoft consoles will restock at 3pm EDT / 12pm PDT, and it may be for Walmart Plus members only at first. There’s a chance leftovers could be sold again at and 7pm EDT / 4pm PDT. You can let Matt’s tweets guide you through the complicated the purchase, as Walmart has become the hardest when it comes to checking out with the Sony console. You’ll find consoles starting Friday at 5am local time as an early Black Friday deal, although it wasn’t specified if this will include consoles.
Here’s how to get both PS5 Digital for $399 and PS5 Disc for $499 today:
➡ When? Follow PS5 restock Twitter tracker Matt Swider for alerts on exactly what time PS5 will be in stock at Walmart. Often it’s either earlier or delayed than the time given.
➡ Never buy from Twitter users – they’re all scams. No one will actually sell you a PS5 for $550 when prices for the PS5 are nearing $1,000 these days. It’s always a scam.

Walmart PS5 restock updates in real-time
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.
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.
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).

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.
