As stock of Sony PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles continue to be sparse, when they do become available, you need to move fast. That's why news of today's Walmart restock should come as welcome news. Not only is the giant retailer likely to have decent numbers available, but the usual scalpers will be kept at bay thanks to the need for a paid membership fee.
To get your hands on either the PS5 or Xbox, you'll need to sign up to Walmart+, the subscription service costing $12.95. Trial memberships won't work for this.
The consoles will go on sale on Thursday, February 24 at 12pm ET / 9am PT and you'll want to sign up well in advance of that, as stock won't last for long. Once you're logged in, the links below should take you direct to the right pages.
Update (12.40 pm ET): all stock now seems to be gone
