First Best Buy, now Walmart: The retailer has confirmed that it will have all four next-gen consoles — both versions of the PS5, the Xbox Series X and the Xbox Series S — available for online-only sales today at noon PT (3 p.m. ET) today, Tuesday, Dec. 15.

This is the first online availability at Walmart we’ve seen since the day before Thanksgiving. As usual, the same rules apply: These will likely sell out instantly, but we’re providing the links below for you to try your luck.

The cream of the PlayStation crop, this console includes an 825GB SSD and Blu-ray optical drive. Read our PS5 review.


This is the less pricey Digital Edition, which has the same specs as the more expensive one, including an 825GB solid-state drive, except that it lacks the optical drive. If you have a good broadband connection, your money is best spent right here. Read our PS5 review.

This is a step-down from the $499 Xbox Series X. It plays all the same games, but it’s capped at 1440p resolution, has half as much storage (500GB versus 1TB) and lacks the Series X’s Blu-ray player. Read our Xbox Series S review.
