UPDATE #2 - A representative from WalMart has reached out to me to clarify what exactly will be on sale at the Gamer Drop event. 

"Power up your holiday shopping and check out this season’s hottest titles and accessories at our Gamer Drop event! Join us in stores and on Walmart.com to stock up on video game must haves! The Gamer Drop event includes great prices on exciting games and console accessories. The Walmart exclusive Nintendo Switch Bundle with added value and the XBox Series S are also available, while supplies last. Note the PS5 and XBox Series X consoles are not included in this event."

"UPDATE (1:19PM) Well if you are looking for consoles it looks like you will need to keep looking. Walmart has updated the homepage of the Gamer Drop event to now say "PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch OLED will not be available during this event. Xbox Series X can be purchased through Xbox All Access". Oh well it was fun while it lasted I guess. The event will still happen but will only sell games and accessories. 

Original Story: Getting a PS5, Series X or even the OLED Nintendo Switch has been near impossible as of late, especially around the holidays. If you are still looking for one of these consoles Walmart is going to give you another chance. 

On December 11th 2021, Walmart will host and event called "Gamer Drop" and according to the website, will including games, controllers, but most importantly consoles. The website shows the PS5, Series X and the OLED Nintendo Switch. 

Now this even will be in store only and only certain stores will participate in the program. To find a store near you that is participating, you can search for one on Walmart's official website for the event.
