Big news! We hear that Walmart will be restocking the Sony PlayStation 5 — that's the standard disc edition going for $499. So keep refreshing the page until you can add to cart! There are two things to know, however. The first is that it's available exclusively to Walmart+ members.

Haven't heard of Walmart+? Membership has a host of benefits. Walmart+ can deliver groceries, holiday emergency needs (turkey! gifts! tape!) and more to your door fast. Shipping is free too, which means you can have gifts sent directly to distant friends and fam. And you'll save big on prescriptions and fuel. So. Many. Perks.

You can sign up for your free 15-day trial here, but a quick three question survey will add on an additional two more weeks for a solid 30 days of use. (And by the way, those without Walmart+ still get free shipping on orders of $35 or more.) Take note! The PlayStation 5 restock is only available for paying members; if you're on a free trial right now, you won’t be able to purchase.

Strike while the iron's hot

The second caveat? The PlayStation 5 is sure to be one of the most sought-after items for the holidays this year, so this window's not likely to stay open for long. Our advice? Add to cart, stat!

When you're done, Keep scrolling for great video games on sale too.

Next generation gaming

The PlayStation 5 boasts incredible graphics, audio and motion, and its games are amazing, including Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Godfall, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Demon’s Souls and so much more.

This is the standard, hard-disc edition. It features 16GB of memory and 825GB of on-board storage. You can still play a few of your older PS4 games on the system since it’s backwards-compatible. It’s also a Blu-ray player. 

Whether you’re new to gaming or looking to upgrade your old PS4, the new Sony PlayStation 5 will keep you more than occupied for many years to come. Good luck and happy gaming!
