These consoles won’t go live when Walmart’s Black Friday sale does. You’re going to have to wait.

When Walmart’s Black Friday ad initially dropped, one of the highlights was confirmed availability of the Xbox Series X and PS5 during the online portion of its Black Friday sale (which kicks off Nov. 25 at 7 p.m. ET).

But if either of those consoles are on your list, you’ll need to wait a couple hours to shop for them.

We just got word from Walmart that these two brand-new, high-demand consoles will still go live on Nov. 25 — but at 9 p.m. ET instead of 7 p.m.

“This is to make sure as many customers as possible can score this amazing Black Friday deal and have a very happy holiday,” reads the statement we received from Walmart.

The other new console on the block this year (the Oculus Quest 2) is still available at sale kickoff at 7 p.m.

So update any reminders and alarms you’ve set for yourself. The Xbox Series X and PS5 will likely sell out almost immediately (as they did during presales and on release day). If you’re ready at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, there are still plenty of deals to shop from Walmart, including an amazing price on AirPods Pro. Check out our list of the best deals from Walmart’s ad. And if you can’t even wait until then, plenty of retailers’ sales are already going live. So consider checking some items off your list so you can save your energy for that mad (online) dash for the new consoles.
