News flash: Xbox Series X available right now at Walmart, stock very limited (of course)

Update: At 12:05 p.m. PT the queue is open but here at CNET, all our attempts to go through the purchase flow to get an Xbox All Access are getting bogged down in server congestion — “Due to high demand for Xbox All Access, your request could not be completed. Please try again.”

Update 2: At 12:16 p.m. PT, one CNET staffer successfully checked out and is the owner of an Xbox One X. The system works. 

Walmart is at it again. According to a company representative, the retailer will have the Xbox Series X available for online-only sales today, Feb. 25, starting at noon PT (3 p.m. ET). For how long? Every time inventory drops in at any store, it’s generally gone within the hour. But at least you can try your luck.

From what we’ve been able to determine, the restock applies only to the Xbox Series X All Access, which allows you to finance the console over 24 months without any interest charges. (It also includes a subscription to Xbox Game Pass.)

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

The Series X is the premium Xbox, offering 1TB of storage, a Blu-ray drive and support for full 4K resolution. The All Access option gets you a console for nothing down up-front and $35 per month for 24 months.
