If you're on the hunt for a new PS4 console, Walmart has announced that they will have them in stock in stores nationwide at 8am on Sunday December 15th during their Christmas Countdown Savings Event. The press release also notes that they will have a limited number of PS4 consoles available online at Walmart.com.
“When we reported our record-breaking Black Friday results, we said we weren’t done yet, and we meant it,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer, Walmart U.S. “As our customers count down the final days until Christmas, we remain focused on offering them great prices and the hottest gifts to place under their Christmas trees.”
Remember that just because they're getting it in stock in time for this sale does NOT mean that the consoles will be discounted at all. The PS4 is selling out quickly whenever anyone gets it in stock right now, so there's not much incentive to discount them from a retailer's perspective right now, and Walmart did not mention the pricing in their press release. However, if a PS4 is on your list this year, you'll want to arrive early to have a shot.
The rest of the sale looks pretty decent to us, as well. Here's a sneak peek at what you can expect to see beginning tomorrow at 8am in stores and at midnight online. Note that some of these deals are available online right now, and we even see one for less than the price quoted in the press release!

For those items that will be online, Walmart offers free shipping on purchases of $35 or more. The Christmas Countdown Savings event will run from Friday morning through 12/24, or while supplies last.
