Purchasing any of the next-gen consoles has been a frustrating process for a lot of people with stock shortages predicted well into 2021 for the Xbox Series X

If you've missed out so far, your next chance is coming today from Walmart as the retailer will have the Xbox Series X in stock online at 9 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Pacific, 8 p.m. Central). The Xbox Series S will also be available at Walmart

As you can imagine, Walmart's site will likely be hammered, just like every other retailer, so being there and ready is hardly a guarantee, but with Walmart offering stock of both consoles at once, that might at least spread out the traffic a bit.

Here are the direct links to each of the consoles:

I would recommend getting to the site early and signing in and entering your payment information in advance for the best chance to secure your next-gen console.

Good luck!
