We are still seeing a shortage or no supply of PlayStation 5 consoles at many retailers and we are going weeks between new nationwide restocks. Hopefully this summer will prove more fruitful, and a good (though small) sign is that Walmart has a PS5 event tomorrow.

If you’re a Walmart Plus subscriber, you’ll get the chance to queue for a standard $499 disc drive-equipped PlayStation 5 Thursday, June 2 at 3 p.m. ET. This is another supplement exclusive to paying Walmart Plus members, but since we’re notified in advance, you’ll have plenty of time to pay the minimum $12.95 for a month of membership for the drop. Yes, you get other benefits from Walmart like free deliveries, but we end up paying just to play the restock game. Remember, though, you can always cancel the subscription once you’ve landed your shiny new console.

Playstation 5

With Sony’s flagship next-gen console, which includes a disc drive, you can play both digital and physical games for the PS4 and PS5.

As for the console landing tomorrow, you should be ready to refresh the page as soon as the clock strikes 3:00 PM ET / 12PM PT. Feel free to try it in a desktop browser and the Walmart app on your phone at the same time, and use a site like time is to keep a close eye on the correct time.

You will be put in a queue and just ready to hold on. Stay patient and don’t leave your spot in line until the restocking event has ended, especially since Walmart often loads the stock in waves on its site. Once it’s your turn, you’ll have 10 minutes to check out with a PS5. Since you must be a Walmart Plus subscriber, your billing and shipping information should already be good.

We will update this post on the day of the Walmart restock and will continue to track more console purchase opportunities. Be sure to follow @VergeDeals on Twitter

Recommended PS5 games and accessories

Paying for Walmart Plus just to buy a console can be a bit shit, but at least you won’t get stuck with a bundle. Here are some of our ongoing recommendations for equipping your new PlayStation 5 with both games and hardware.

Horizon Forbidden West

Guerrilla Games’ new episode in the Horizon series, Horizon Forbidden West, puts you back in control of Aloy to traverse a vast open world filled with machine animals and elaborate quests. The physical version of the PS4 is $10 cheaper than the PS5 version and can be upgraded for free.

DualSense wireless controller

Anyone fancy some grape jelly? This DualSense controller features a deep purple color that is accentuated by the black of its two-tone styling.

Sony Pulse 3D headset (black)

Sony’s proprietary wireless gaming headset is made to showcase the 3D audio effect of the PS5 and will work on the PS4 too. This version matches the midnight black DualSense controller and PS5 console covers.

Update June 1, 09:58 ET: We’ve updated the copy and headline to reflect stock replenishment tomorrow.
