On Thursday morning, thousands of Canadians attempted to purchase the recently-launched PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X.
Walmart Canada had PS5 units go on sale this morning, but they’ve also sold out. They were planning to sell the Xbox Series X today online with new stock, but sent out a Tweet that they were delaying that until further notice.
Best Buy often shows out of stock, but several times it’s given me an “Open Box” option for stock. It disappeared just as quickly, as others grabbed the available stock, but it was there. So someone nabbed one. The last time I saw this was Nov. 25, so it’s been a few days, but others have reported on social media that they’ve seen the same thing more recently.
Here are other places to look for a PS5 this week. Retailers such as GameStop have been offering bundles of a PS5 console or digital edition paired with controllers and games for around $800, and they sell out fast. Adorama released limited stock online Monday morning, but it sold out in four minutes.
Remember to continue to look at Walmart periodically, too. And also Amazon. The retailer has been showing restocking, and sometimes it’s through third parties that are selling for scalped rates, but you might get lucky and find it for the regular retail price.
