Gamers who’re still looking to get their hands on the console even after a year since its release can prepare in advance to properly utilize this opportunity to finally get their hands on a new PS5 console.

However, this PS5 restocking is only for Walmart+ members, which means fans need to have the Walmart+ subscription to take advantage of the console availability.

The Walmart+ subscription can actually increase the odds of getting a PS5 as it grants fans four hours early access to the sale before anyone else. So, of course, this subscription could be a game-changer for the fans.

The Walmart+ subscription will cost fans $12.95 per month; it’s a fair amount of money. And getting this subscription plan just to get a PlayStation 5 may not be a wise option. That being said, the console can also be obtained through the free trial, which seems like a better deal. Use the trial period, get the console, and if you think you’re getting quality service for your money, keep it.

But, one thing to note here is that a Walmart+ subscription doesn’t guarantee fans will get a PlayStation 5 console. As is usually the case, the newly arrived units will be made available, and within minutes, they’ll be all sold out. So, even with the increased odds brought about by the Walmart+ subscription plan, it’s still going to be not very easy to get a console.
