Rumors indicate PS5 restock could be making a comeback at Walmart today. We last saw Walmart PS5 restock on May 6 and with a confirmed Sony Direct PS5 restock happening today at 3 p.m. ET, there’s a good chance Walmart might try to steal some of Sony’s thunder.
Unfortunately, the chances of Walmart having Xbox Series X restock is a lot slimmer. Excluding a post-midnight restock at the Microsoft Store earlier in the week, there’s been very limited Xbox Series X|S stock this week. We’re hoping Walmart may surprise us, but the likelihood is slim.

Walmart restock event — tips and tricks
The first thing you’ll want to do is create a Walmart.com account if you don’t already have one. Enter your address and credit card info so that in the event you score a console, you can quickly checkout. You’ll also want to know the correct landing pages for the PS5 at Walmart. (You’ll find the links above).
Once the consoles are available at Walmart you’ll have to act lightning fast to secure a console and purchase it. However, it’s worth noting that Walmart tends to release inventory every 10 minutes. So if you don’t score a console on your first try, keep trying. The restocks have lasted from 1 hours to as long as 3 hours. So it pays to stick around and keep trying.
Many have reported that adding the PS5 to a shopping list has helped them score a PS5. To do this, sign into your Walmart account and go to the PS5 product page at Walmart. Click the “add to list” icon underneath the console’s image. You’ll then be prompted to create a name for your wish list.
The next time Walmart has PS5 restock, you should be able to add the console to your cart via your wish list (instead of going to the product page and waiting for it to show up in stock. Again, your mileage may vary with this tactic, but it’s worked in the past.
