Walmart Restock Of PS5 Offers Buyers Free Upgrade

With the chip shortage and scalpers making it hard to get a PS5, customers have had to wait. Many are still refusing to pay over $1,000 on a PS5 with a set price from Playstation of $399 and $499. Sadly, Walmart is still allowing third parties to sell on their site. I don’t have a problem with third-party selling, I just don’t think this company should be a part of it. As someone who has depended on their low prices a few times in my life, it’s just disappointing. Walmart is giving some customers a little something to smooth things over is my guess.

Walmart is giving a free PS5 upgrade to recent purchasers, but are still allowing price gouging on site.

Walmart’s Kind Offer?

If you were one of the lucky ones to have ordered the PS5 Digital recently from Walmart, they are giving an upgrade to the disc model for free. While that seems nice, but what about those who are willing to pay for the PS5 with the disc drive? Some of those will not be in stock making those customers wait even longer. What about those that didn’t want an upgrade? Will they message Walmart to change it back or just let it slide? This whole thing is such a mess.

This upgrade does benefit some customers, especially if those customers just settled on the digital version. Although, I feel bad for those who have been waiting and are now still going to have to wait. Both versions of the PS5 are out of stock right now. While you can click the ‘get in-stock alert’ button and wait for Walmart to email you, it still might be a long wait for the next restock.

What are your thoughts on the PS5 upgrade? Did you receive a free upgrade? Please let us know in the comments below.
