How to get a PS5 this Black Friday

The PlayStation 5 has been hard to get your hands on since launch, but we’re finally starting to see them popping up at retailers on a regular basis. If you’ve been trying to get one to no avail, or if you’re trying to get one for someone else as a Christmas present, Black Friday has several opportunities ahead.

How to get a PS5 on Black Friday

The TL; DR is if you want to crack on a PS5 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. If you want to purchase a PS5 or PS5 bundle, your first opportunity will be Monday, November 21 at 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. However, there’s a catch: This first Black Friday PS5 run will be be available only to Walmart+ members.

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.

When will the PS5 go on sale 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 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.

The availability of PlayStation 5 consoles is one of many PS5 Black Friday deals pass, although at full price it’s not really a bargain. But it beats scalper prices!
