How to get a PS5 this Black Friday season

If you’re hoping to pick up a PS5 or PS5 bundle, your first advertised opportunity will be Monday, November 21 at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT at Walmart. However, there is a catch: this first round of PS5 Black Friday will only be available to Walmart+ members. That’s not to say it’s the only way to get your hands on a shiny new PlayStation 5 before the Christmas season, but it’s the only way that’s been officially announced (so far).

How to get a PS5 on Black Friday

The TL; DR is if you want to crack on a PS5 from Walmart first, better sign up for Walmart+.

Walmart will be offering the PlayStation 5 God of War: Ragnarök bundles on three separate days, along with several other PS5 releases and bundles.

Walmart+ Membership

Walmart+ costs $12.98 for a single month or $98 per year. There’s a 30-day free trial, but unfortunately the free trial doesn’t get you early access to the PS5 Black Friday drops. You will have to pay to access it.

If you’d rather not spend the money on a month of Walmart+ to access PlayStation 5 consoles on Monday, November 21, you still have two chances at Walmart, chances that DO NOT require a membership.

Does Amazon have a PS5 in stock?

It’s an interesting question. For Black Friday, Amazon has nothing up its sleeve when it comes to the PS5 (at least, not to our knowledge). However, you can sign up for a PS5 invite on several different PlayStation 5 SKUs listed below. From what we’ve seen via IGNDeals on Twitter and our own reports, those invites went out pretty quickly.

When will the PS5 go on sale at Walmart for Black Friday?

  • Monday, 11/21 at 12 p.m. ET on Walmart.com for Walmart+ members only
  • Wednesday, 11/23 at 12 p.m. ET on Walmart.com
  • Black Friday, 25/11, in store

Which versions of the PlayStation 5 will be available on Black Friday?

According to Walmart, the following PlayStation 5 consoles and console bundles will be available online and in-store. In-store availability is, of course, subject to change, and if you’re trying to pick up a PS5 on Black Friday at Walmart, you’re made for tougher things than me.

Amazon, as noted above, has the same selection available by invite, but also offers invites for the disc and digital versions of the Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation 5 bundles.

The availability of PlayStation 5 consoles is one of many PS5 Black Friday deals going on, though at full price it’s hardly a bargain. But it beats scalper prices!
