Walmart Black Friday Deals for Days Event: Best Tech Deals on Xbox & PS5 Consoles and More

Those looking to get their hands on either a PS5 or an Xbox Series X should keep an eye on Walmart next week, as the retailer has just announced that both consoles will be featured in its upcoming Black Friday sale.

Even a year on from launch, Microsoft and Sony's next-gen hardware is incredibly tough to pin down. Keeping track of the limited availability has become a full-time job for some people and Newsweek has been publishing regular updates on the subject to try and help you beat the crowds.

Yet getting a hold of the consoles still remains a huge challenge, thanks to temperamental checkout pages, short notice drops and opportunistic scalpers who keep stockpiling units.

Luckily, you have plenty of time to prepare for Walmart's upcoming Xbox Series X and PS5 restocks, as we can now confirm that these will be taking place in the week of Thanksgiving. Specifically, online orders will go live as part of a "Deals for Days" event on Monday, November 22 at 7 p.m. ET (and a little earlier for Walmart + members at 3 p.m. ET).

Although they are being described as "Black Friday deals", both consoles will actually be going for the standard cost of $499. It's still a fair price but just be aware that you won't be getting any money off here.

Still, if you are desperate to finally add one of these elusive systems to your basket, then knowing the precise date and time of the restock (7 p.m. on November 22) is going to be a huge advantage.

Speaking of which, you can prepare early by bookmarking the relevant pages on Walmart's website, ready for when the sale launches. Click here for the PS5, here for the Xbox Series X, and here for the Xbox Series S (priced at $299).

While the Xbox and PlayStation consoles are not reduced in price, you will be able to pick up a Nintendo Switch for cheap on November 22.

The handheld will be bundled with a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for $299. As a bit of context, the portable device on its own is usually listed for $393, so you will definitely be getting a saving here. A placeholder page has been set up in advance.

It's worth noting that this is just for the base model Switch and that there is not a Black Friday deal at Walmart for the newer OLED edition.

Video Games
