Only Walmart Plus subscribers will be given the chance to purchase the gaming system.
Both the disc-based PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition will be available for $499 and $399, respectively.
A paid Walmart Plus account is needed in order to purchase either console – please note, a free trial won’t work on these deals, according to The Verge.
Walmart’s Premium subscription will set you back $98 each year and includes things like free store delivery, free shipping, and discounts on gas and prescription medication.
However, if that’s too much commitment, customers also have the option to subscribe for just one month for $12.95 to try their luck at a PS5.
How to prepare for the restock
PlayStation 5 gaming systems are almost always sold out so if you wish to purchase one, you need to be prepared.
Start by having your Walmart Plus account ready to go with the proper addresses listed.
You will also want to have your payment options already loaded into your account.
Furthermore, when the time approaches to make your purchase, you will want to avoid excessively hitting the ‘refresh’ button as Walmart’s bots may temporarily lock you out, according to The Verge.
Why are PS5 consoles so popular?
Sony’s PS5 has reached nearly unparalleled success in two categories: exclusive games and performance.
The console offers gorgeous 4K graphics, super-fast loading times, and a high-performace controller that enhances the user experience.
It also plays nearly all PS4 games, and, in many cases, allows them to even run and load better.
