The Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 gaming consoles, some of the most coveted gifts during last year’s holiday season, will be back on the shelves today at Walmart. Walmart will be offering the gaming consoles "while supplies last" starting at 3 p.m. EST. We expect the consoles to go fast based on previous drops like this at major retailers.
The nearly impossible to get PlayStation 5 is Sony’s top gaming model and sports a built-in 4K Blu-ray player. You can enjoy games like Marvel's Spider-Man: Mile Morales, Demon's Souls, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and the ever-popular Fortnite in high-end graphics — you can also play most PS4 games on it.
The Xbox Series X is considered one of the most powerful consoles of this generation and costs the same as the PS5. It shares many of the same games as the PS5, too, including Fortnite, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. The Xbox also has its own exclusive titles like Gears 5 and the upcoming Halo Infinite. You can also play all Xbox One games on it and, if you’ve held on to them, some Xbox 360 and original Xbox games. If you want to use your device for streaming shows and movies, it also equips a 4k Blu-ray drive.
If you don’t want to take the $500 dive, the Xbox Series S is a lower-cost alternative to the Series X. You can play the same games but it gets rid of the disc drive so they must be digital downloads. The Series S also comes with downgraded graphics from the Series X and the PS5, so your games won’t look as great as they would on the higher price point models.
