Nearly two weeks before the special, Walmart released a Black Friday ad showing additional information for the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles.
Walmart is one of the largest retailers that can buy video game hardware and software. So, Walmart released a Black Friday 2021 ad showing how buyers can buy PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles if they act fast enough.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge toll on the video game industry, with hardware nearly impossible to find and developers delaying their content. As millions of people are still trying to grab the next-gen console in PS5 and Xbox Series X, Walmart has re-added the dashboards over time, although the continued emergence of bots has made these paths particularly difficult. With the holidays approaching, many are hoping for increased console availability at these top retailers, it’s been more than a year since both launched. Walmart has begun hosting early Black Friday deals online and in-store.
Ahead of Black Friday, Walmart released an ad containing this year’s biggest sales, as well as information about the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. Wario64, a game deal informant play on Twitter, posted images of the sale ad, giving shoppers a first look at Walmart’s Black Friday offerings. Starting November 22, Walmart will offer limited PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5 Digital and Xbox Series X console for online purchase only. Walmart Plus members can start shopping four hours early, though users have to be fully registered, not just in the trial version.
There’s an amazing amount of deals on games, with Walmart offering prices for a wide variety of games. For $35 everyone can buy just released Guardians of the Galaxy, Far Cry 6, as well as a bunch of Nintendo Switch games like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Bros. New U Deluxe. The $25 tier offers a similar blend of recently released games including PS5 exclusives Deathloop, Back to 4 health, and great Legendary version of Mass Effect. Walmart stipulates that not every item listed is guaranteed to be available in every store, although potential buyers must select at least two titles per floor if shopping in that bracket.
Whether shopping online or in person, this year’s Black Friday at Walmart can be messy as there are some pretty solid deals. One has to hope Walmart will sort out some sort of queue to buy PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles, like Sony made it with its PS Direct queue. As history has proven, without some security measures for the authentic buyer, November 22nd could once again be overrun by bots, taking over entire dashboards. There aren’t any products in store for consoles, shop online at Walmart may be the best bet for some people.
