PS5 consoles will be in stock at Walmart today from 9AM PT / 12PM ET. Walmart has confirmed its latest PS5 stock drop will occur on April 19, 2022, with only Walmart+ members getting access to the new stock this time around.
If you haven’t got a Walmart+ account just yet, it costs $98/ year or there is a $12.95/ month alternative. But, it’s worth noting that you will not be able to access the PS5 drop via a free trial membership, so you’ll need to have an active paid Walmart+ subscription to participate in the new PS5 drop.
