The PS5 and the Xbox Series X had some major issues when they got released for pre-orders. The available pre-orders were snatched within hours and frustrated all the expectant fans. In preparation for the Black Friday sale of 2020, Walmart has decided to restock the PS5 and Xbox Series X. The sale begins on November 25 at 4 PM PT / 7 PM ET. The surprising part is that it is only for online customers. You heard us right! The consoles will not be available through their physical stores but only through www.Walmart.com .
The Black Friday ad by Walmart does not show the Digital version of the Xbox Series X or the PS5. Therefore it is unclear if Walmart will stock the Digital version at all. But, if you are looking forward to getting either of these consoles, we advise you snatch the disk version. The previous stocks of the PS5 and Xbox Series X disappeared from the shelves so quickly we did not even have time to make such a choice. History is sure to repeat here so it is best to keep that finger greased up and ready to click.
The PS5 went live on November 12th, just a week back. It is the hottest console out there, the queues of expectant gamers waiting to get hands on it are growing by the day. The console already has some great exclusives like SackBoy: A big adventure and Spiderman: Miles Morales. The new PS5 has great backwards compatibility. And that means you can play all your favourite titles from the previous generations on the PS5 with no issues at all.
The Xbox Series X
The new Xbox is giving a strong fight to the PS5 in the world of console gaming. The latest console my Microsoft supports a lot of the titles that PS5 has in its arsenal. Assassins Creed: Valhalla, Call of Duty: Blackops Cold War and many other third party titles can be played. The Xbox Series X also provides 100% backward compatibility with its previous generations of video games.
Walmart is really giving its employees some freedom after the complications caused by Covid Pandemic. The stores will not be opened on Thanksgiving day this year. Employees are given a day off to spend “special Thanksgiving Day at home with their loved ones”.
