Walmart is offering PS5 consoles for order on its website with several time periods pre-selected to allow for customers to have a fair shot at getting the system–the next batch will be available at noon PT / 3 PM ET. Unfortunately, the high level of traffic these orders brought appears to have crashed its entire website.
As of right now, the website appears to have recovered, but some players interested in purchasing the console may have seen an error message describing technical difficulties. We saw this message when attempting to go to the Walmart homepage, though the problem quickly corrected itself.
That short few minutes is plenty of time for others to buy the remaining stock, however. The PS5 is particularly hard to come by, and Walmart’s launch-day orders were one of the best ways to guarantee you received the system in time for Christmas this year.
