Update April 19th, 12:42PM ET: Walmart has sold out of PlayStation 5 consoles for now.
Update April 19th, 12:00PM ET: Walmart’s listing for the PS5 is now live.
It’s time for another chance to buy the most sought-after console currently on the market: Sony’s PlayStation 5. Walmart once again has a restock of PS5 consoles coming up for Walmart Plus subscribers. The members-only drop is scheduled for today, April 19th, at 12PM ET / 9AM PT, and it’s set to include the disc-based PS5 for $499. You’ll need a paid Walmart Plus account to get a crack at either one (no free trials allowed), and while the premium subscription costs $98 annually, you can subscribe for just one month for $12.95 to try your hand at a PS5.
We’ve been through this drill at Walmart many times before, and while nobody likes paying extra for access to purchase a console, the retail giant is one of the more reliable stores selling non-bundled consoles. This scheduled restock is no different, and both versions of the PS5 are available for their regular prices without forcing you to purchase a big bundle.
