Walmart’s In-Store Gamer Drop Will Be a Bust for New Consoles. December is packed with so much love. Walmart has just announced a new Gamer Drop event coming to select stores on December 11th.
This is where the retailer is promising to have the “latest gaming titles and consoles.” It’s billing it as a holiday shopping event, complete with discounts and exclusive gear.
In an article the verge said, the posted circular on Walmart’s website prominently features the major consoles, including the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, Xbox Series X / S, and both models of the PlayStation 5 with the note of “Available in-store or online at Walmart.com/GamerDrop.”

After the event was announced, Walmart added more text to the notice (you can see the original one in the image below), informing gamers that “PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch OLED will not be available during this event.”
It’s unclear whether or not they will have any Xbox Series X consoles on hand, but if there are, then the notice says you will only be able to purchase them as part of an All Access subscription.
This event is exclusive to select Walmart stores. You can find the closest Walmart that’s participating in the Gamer Drop event on Saturday, the 11th, by searching your address or zip code on the Gamer Drop page.
Listed stores indicate Gamer Drop hours of 10:30 AM to 7 PM, which is a limited window compared to store hours of many Walmart stores. We have reached out to Walmart for further details and will keep an eye out for more information.
