Walmart’s latest hosting of PS5 drops has gone “horrendous” for some fans. If you are unsuccessful in your recent purchase, read more here to know the stores that you need to visit next.
According to a report by Comicbook, some buyers said that the previous Walmart console restock was one of the “worst” that happened since PS5’s release last year. Apparently, the latest drop did not end well for others.
For another moment, some customers shared experiences about this event. The majority of them reported that the technical glitches ruined their buying of the new console.
To specify the problems, some said that the website has crashed upon the checkout. Others said that it even froze and some functions were not working properly.
During checkout, the customers complained about a problem where they could not add the PlayStation 5 to the cart. As such, many considered waiting for another round of restocks from other stores in the next few weeks.
Over Twitter, many citizens raised their concerns about the Walmart PS5 fiasco. One customer said that Walmart is a “billion-dollar company with a $5 server.” Another described the latest PS5 drops as “horrendous.”

Still, another one wrote he’s been stuck from 10 to 30 mins because of the “freezing screen.” He overheard that people mentioned the increased timers and he felt that Walmart wanted him to get out of the queue.
