Update: That didn't take long. By 1 p.m. PT all consoles were out of stock. Did you manage to get one while the window was open? If so, let us know in the comments. Otherwise, see you at the next restock rodeo. 

Walmart is at it again. The retailer will have both versions of the PS5 and the Xbox Series X available for online-only sales today, Jan. 21, starting at noon PT (3 p.m. ET). For how long? Every time inventory drops in at any store, it's gone almost instantly. But at least you can try your luck.

Looking for other retailers? Check for restocks at Amazon, GameStop and Target here.

This wasn't included on today's availability list, but perhaps it'll make a surprise appearance?

The Series S plays all the same games as the $499 Xbox Series X, but it's capped at 1440p resolution, has half as much storage (500GB versus 1TB) and lacks the Series X's Blu-ray player. It costs less and would be a good choice depending on your setup. Read our Xbox Series S review.

This is Microsoft's top-of-the-line console equipped with four times the processing power of the Xbox One. It has a Blu-ray drive and 1TB of solid-state storage and can output in 4K resolution. Read our Xbox Series X review.

The cream of the PlayStation crop, this console includes an 825GB SSD and a Blu-ray optical drive. Read our PS5 review.

Sony

This is the less pricey Digital Edition, which has the same specs as the more expensive one, including an 825GB solid-state drive, except that it lacks the optical drive. If you have a good broadband connection, your money is best spent right here. Read our PS5 review.
