The PS5 pre-order situation has so far been a bit of a mess, and Walmart’s fresh batch of
consoles at 6PM PT / 9PM ET on Thursday night did nothing to change that. They were gone in about a minute.
I was able to get a Digital Edition in my cart, but I didn’t pull the trigger because I already secured a preorder yesterday.
My editor said the Digital Editions were showing as out of stock for him about 10 seconds later,
though, so who knows if I would have actually been able to make the purchase. And shortly after, a few of us at
The Verge were seeing that preorders were no longer available.
