Still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X? Walmart is giving you another chance to buy these highly sought after next-gen consoles today (November 19). Here's everything you need to know so you'll have the best chance of snagging the hottest gifts of the year.

Update: The PS5 and and Xbox Series X were in stock at Walmart today as of 3 pm ET/ 12 pm PT. However, it appears that all four consoles are now sold out. See our where to buy PS5 guide to check all the retailers. 

The pages for all four consoles says that they will be "available online only at 3PM ET on Thursday, Nov 19. While supplies last." So you're going to have to act fast if you want to be able to put the PS5 or Xbox Series X in your cart. 

If you miss out on this opportunity, Walmart will also be selling the PS5 and Xbox Series X online as part of its early Walmart Black Friday deals event, which starts Nov. 25 at 7 pm ET.

Walmart has been offering Black Friday previews since the start of the month. The sales have included everything from $99 AirPods to ultra-cheap 55-inch 4K TVs. However, the deals have — for  the most part — sold out rapidly. So we recommend refreshing those console pages as much as possible so you can be first in line when the sale starts tomorrow at 3pm ET. 

If you're torn on which console to buy, check out our PS5 vs Xbox Series X face-off. We break down all the pros and cons as well as the key differences.

    Well that was fun just now. 12 minutes of refreshing and waiting after finally getting the PS5 in the cart at Walmart.com, only to be told it is out of stock just as I start entering my payment info, which they already had on my account.

    The bots win. The bots always win. Walmart really should stop listing date and time when stock will be in. This will continue to happen for the next year so long as there's a date and time attached to console restocking. I'd be perfectly happy scouring websites at 6AM hoping to catch supply that wasn't announced so the website wasn't suddenly choked with online traffic.

    Yep. That happened to me at 12:00, 3:00 and 6:00 at the last PS5 release. Really bad transaction process. When it's in the Cart, it should be yours. Walmart sucks!

    There was no 12:00 from or 6:00 today from what i witnessed just one chance at 3:00 ET and it lasted only about 10 minutes with my computer screen going haywire and trying to shut me down as I actually had the item in my cart it was a total joke on the part of Walmart and the way they do things in there online sales.
