Update 12:25PM ET, September 23rd: Walmart’s console restock didn’t get off to a good start. Pages weren’t loading for most people, it seems, and the retailer updated its site with a header saying “Console event to be rescheduled”. We’ll update this post again once we know when the event will happen.
Walmart is hosting a big console restock event today, September 23rd, at 12PM ET / 9AM PT. It’s going to have the PS5 consoles, along with the standard Xbox Series X and the limited edition Halo Infinite-themed Series X.
In case you’re after that Halo-themed console, try your luck at getting one through this link. Spec-wise, it’s no different than the standard model, but it has a more alluring design, both on the console and the included wireless controller. Two things to note: it’s $549.99, costing $50 more than the regular Series X. Another thing is that you won’t receive this until the game launches on November 15th.
Or, you can try to get the $499.99 Xbox Series X console, which has a Blu-ray disc drive, around 800GB of useable (but expandable) storage, and includes a wireless controller.
Getting an Xbox? Consider these add-ons:
For people who are eager to get a PlayStation 5, Walmart has both editions of the console available today. You’ll be able to get the $499.99 version that has a built-in Blu-ray disc drive and a DualSense controller. It’s also going to sell the digital version that lacks a disc drive for $399.99. Both consoles have around 660GB of useable storage, but they’re expandable via their NVMe M.2 slot. If you just plan on playing PS4 games, you can use a cheaper external USB hard drive.
