So many people tried to order the PS5 on the day it launched from the Walmart website on November 12. Apart from the steep mark-ups on the aftermarket, we haven’t seen Sony’s sleek new gaming console since – but that may change as we approach . Walmart̵
Both are labeled “Online Only,” and Walmart stores are closed on Thanksgiving. Does this mean that they will actually be available for purchase between November 25 and 30 (Cyber Monday)? You assume it’s as good as ours, but we’ll follow Walmart’s Twitter account and product pages (linked below), which did a good job of noting when online sales windows will open. Walmart, meanwhile, like all retailers, is currently sold on both the digital-only PS5 and the $ 500 Blu-ray model. (For the time appropriate, we continue to advise that if you do not need the optical drive for games or movies, you should probably.)
To make it a little faster to get to the product page, we have a link to the Walmart product pages on both versions of the PS5 below. Looking for other retailers?.
This is the cheaper Digital Edition, which has an 825GB SSD, but lacks the optical drive. If you have a good broadband connection, your money is best spent right here.
