We'd reckon more than a few HotHardware readers are parents. How would you feel if you bought a singing toy for your kids and it suddenly started belting out curse words and singing about cocaine and depression? Putting aside the fact that most parents would likely rather not buy their kids noisy toys, you'd probably be pretty annoyed. That's exactly what happened to Ania Tanner, a grandmother from Brampton, Ontario, who purchased a "Dancing Cactus Toy Talking Cactus Twist Dance Lighting Tongue Learning Toy Lightweight And Portable Toy" from Walmart. The Chinese-made toy lights up, wiggles around, and can "sing" songs in English, Spanish, and Polish. Well, as it happens, Mrs. Tanner speaks Polish,... Read more...
If it was up to us, Mac Jones would adorn the cover of Madden NFL 22 instead of Patrick Mahomes (yeah, we tend to get overly excited about the Patriots around these parts). He's the real deal (you'll see). Our unsolicited opinion aside, you can score a pretty hefty discount on Madden NFL 22, and play it on the new-generation console you're going to score this week. Wait, what!? Everyone and their uncle wants to nab either a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, and though both have been on the market for about a year now they remain incredibly difficult to find in stock. There's some good news, though—both are going to pop up during Black Friday week. Walmart in particular has confirmed it will... Read more...
The holiday season is quickly approaching and the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 still remain high on many wishlists. The consoles have been difficult to obtain, but there is at least one upcoming opportunity to get your hands on them. Here is everything you need to know about the Walmart restock of the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Walmart has confirmed on its website that the Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will all be available today, November 5th, at 3pm ET. The consoles will only be purchasable through Walmart’s website. It is currently unclear whether consumers will need a Walmart+ membership, but having a membership certainly could not hurt. There...

Black Friday and the holiday shopping season are just around the corner, so if you are in the market for a new gaming console, now is the time to start looking. If you've had trouble getting your hands on a current-gen console, we have collected some information to help you out in this difficult endeavor, as a couple of retailers have planned restocks in the coming days that have since leaked out. Target PlayStation 5 Drop Late last week, PlayStation and Xbox console restock tracker Jake Randall tweeted about a potential PlayStation 5 restock coming either on the 21st or 27th of October. However, since nothing came about on the former date, a drop of unknown size is likely coming on Wednesday... Read more...
Update, 10/13/21: After the quoted pre-order delivery date came and went without actual delivery of the Switch OLED, my order status changed from "Placed" to "Delayed," where it remains at the time of this article update. However, I have some potentially good (nay, great) news to share. I spoke on the phone with a representative from Walmart, who said there were some initial logistic issues (not uncommon during the pandemic), but that those have been sorted out. I'm told Switch OLED pre-orders have already begun shipping. Furthermore, the rep told me orders will go out by end of today for everyone who pre-ordered the console (a point I wanted to clarify, as I wasn't just inquiring about my own... Read more...
Over the weekend, we started to turn the corner concerning Zen 3 processor availability. Ever since AMD's Ryzen 5000 desktop processor family launched late last year, they've been in short supply. Early pricing was through the roof, with chips selling for well over MSRP. The Ryzen 7 5800X was the first Zen 3 processor to become widely available at its MSRP, and now it's the Ryzen 5 5600X's turn. The Ryzen 5 5600X has an MSRP of $299 but routinely sells for between $350 and $400 due to supply issues. But right now, you can head right on over to Walmart.com and purchase the Ryzen 5 5600X for $299.99 with no strings attached.  Even Amazon, which has struggled to keep the Ryzen 5600X in...

It goes without saying that finding a next generation consoles have been incredibly hard to come by for the past month. For those that couldn’t snag an early preorder spot, it has been an exhausting affair trying to find retailer that had the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X in stock for more than a few seconds at a time. Luckily, Walmart currently has sufficient stock of the Xbox Series S this morning. We say "sufficient" because the console has been available to purchase online for at least the past two hours and has shown no signs of going out of stock. The console is of course priced at $299 with free shipping to your home. Unfortunately, the console will arrive after Christmas... Read more...
The Nintendo Switch has been a hot item during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the console has been going in and out of stock for the past few months (with some new, sealed consoles commanding a premium on third-party marketplaces like eBay). Switch inventory is once again reaching low points as we are in the Christmas shopping rush, but Walmart has one particular bundle in stock that might catch your eye. The standard Nintendo Switch is priced at $299, and only includes the console, the two Joy-Cons, the TV dock, and a power adapter. That's it, no games, no freebies; it's just as barebones as you can get for a console. However, Walmart’s current bundle offer gets you the Switch console, a carrying... Read more...
As we get closer to the Christmas holiday, the frequency of delivery trucks coursing through your neighborhood has no doubt spiked. If Amazon's own Prime delivery trucks aren't wheeling down the streets stopping at every other house, there's bound to be frequent activity from USPS, FedEx and UPS trucks as well. Walmart is attempting to battle the dominant Amazon Prime service during the lead-up to Christmas, and it is doing by dropping the $35 order minimum for Walmart+ subscribers on its website starting December 4th. With the $35 minimum now gone, you can purchase as little or as much as you want and get free next-day or two-day shipping on your items. This compares favorably... Read more...
Smart TVs are hot ticket items this year for Black Friday, and it’s easy to see why. Prices have dropped dramatically on large screen panels, with 4K TVs measuring as big as 65 inches falling well below the $300 mark. This is good news for folks out there that don’t have a lot of money to burn, and just want the most bang for the buck when it comes to screen size and decent image quality. While we could spend all day laying out deals on high-end QLED or OLED panels that retail for $1,000, $2,000 or even $3,000+, we’re going to focus on budget Smart TVs offering under $500 that should still be pleasing to all but the most upper-crust pixel snobs. Insignia 32-inch Fire TV... Read more...
Finding an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 in stock these days is seemingly a fruitless endeavor. Even HotHardware staffers around here have struck out over and over again attempting to score just one of the consoles for ourselves, yet we keep persisting despite the unfavorable odds. With that being said, Walmart is offering up a chance today for you to not only grab an Xbox Series X, but also the PlayStation 5. The retail giant will have both consoles on sale stating at 3pm ET. And for those that don't want to fork over $499, you'll be happy to know that the cheaper Xbox Series S and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will also be available to purchase starting at 3pm. Sony PlayStation 5... Read more...
Walmart has already posted its Black Friday ad, although the discounts won't go live until next Wednesday (11/25) starting at 7pm ET. Not surprisingly, Walmart has quite a few deals on hand that should be enticing for enthusiasts, including deals on popular items like Apple's AirPods Pro and the Apple Watch Series 3 (which is still surprisingly sticking around after all these years). The retailer will also have the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in stock (at MSRP, of course), so you'll want to keep an eye on those as well. With that being said, here are some of the hot deals that we've scoped out for you that you'll want to keep on your radar screen next week. Apple Watch Series 3 The Apple... Read more...
Back in mid-September, Apple announced the Apple Watch SE as a new low-cost smartwatch that slots in between the Apple Watch Series 3 and the new flagship Apple Watch Series 6. The Apple Watch SE features the same design as the Series 6, but misses out on the blood oxygen monitoring and a bevy of other features. It also makes do with the older S5 SoC. However, with a starting price of $279, the Apple Watch SE is an attractive entry for those that don’t want to break the bank on a brand-new up-to-date smartwatch. Now, there’s even more reason to get an Apple Watch SE, as both Walmart and Target are offering the device for $50 off, taking its base price down to a low $229.... Read more...
Google might as well go ahead and launch its Nest Audio smart speaker, because some of its retail partners are not in the mood to wait. The unreleased smart speaker has been spotted on store shelves at Walmart, and there is a product page at Lowe's, though the latter is not actually accepting orders at the moment. Presumably a launch is imminent. It is not clear if Walmart has been actively selling the Nest Audio in stores. Twitter user Marcos Frausto posted the image above (click to enlarge for a full view), saying it "looks like Walmart jumped the gun on the unreleased speaker from Google." In a follow-up tweet, he said Walmart did not put a price on the product. So perhaps the retail chain... Read more...
Walmart is hesitant to come right out and say it, but its new Walmart+ subscription service is a poised to become a direct competitor to Amazon Prime, with competitive pricing and some unique benefits. And with the retail chain having several thousand stores, the combination of online and brick-and-mortar benefits is enticing. So, what exactly is Walmart+? There are three main perks at the outset. The biggest one is unlimited free delivery on more than 160,000 items, ranging from electronics to household goods and groceries. Walmart is pitching this as offering customers" in-store prices as fast as same day" delivery on qualifying items. There is a caveat, though. While not mentioned in the press... Read more...
Anyone in the market for a next-generation Wi-Fi router, but looking for something that won't break the bank, needs to check out a deal going on at Walmart right now for the ever-speedy Netgear Nighthawk AX4 Wi-Fi 6 router. Typically, the router sells for $199, but Walmart has a special deal going on right now that makes the router $100 off. The Netgear Nighthawk AX4 four-stream AX3000 Wi-Fi 6 router (RAX35-100NAS) is currently on sale at Walmart for $99. Walmart is also offering free delivery with arrival by March 23, and if a nearby Walmart retail store has the router in stock, you can buy it online and pick it up in the store. The router is also sold and shipped by Walmart, not some potentially... Read more...
We've been seeing quite a few AMD Ryzen 3000 deals make their way through across the news desk over the past few weeks, but most of the best ones have been limited to MicroCenter. While MicroCenter's pricing is stellar, not everyone has a store in their state. Today, we've got two deals that everyone can partake in, and it involves the burly Ryzen 9 3900X processor. Things first heated up with Walmart, which is selling the processor (normally retailing for $499) at a low $419.99. That's an $80 discount off the regular price, which is a smoking hot deal in our books. Up until that point, Amazon had been selling the same processor for $460. But once the retailer caught word that Walmart was... Read more...
I remember buying a big screen TV back in the day and not being overly fazed by the fact that it was nearly as big as a Buick. This was before thin LCD screens had permeated the market. It's quite the different landscape now, and prices are a lot cheaper, too. If you have not shopped for a TV in a bit, good news, you can upgrade to a fancy new model with various bells and whistles for cheaper than ever before. To help you do just that, we have rounded up a handful of big screen TVs that are currently on sale. Show above, for example, is a JVC 4K Roku Smart TV (LT-70MAW795) for $529.99 on Walmart. Forget about squinting to see the action, because 70 inches of diagonal screen real estate is easy... Read more...
This is the time of year when retailers can build good will with customers by offering swank discounts on everything under the sun, and as we have seen in years past, the deals are not limited to just Black Friday and Cyber Monday—the deal season typically runs from mid-November to late December. Walmart, however, can't seem to get out of its own way. The latest complaint from Black Friday shoppers is that Walmart is sending out emails saying they may cancel their iPhone orders. Starting on Black Friday (November 29), Walmart offered store gift cards when activating certain phones. This is actually still being advertised on Walmart's website. The amount varies by phone, with the iPhone... Read more...
Anyone looking to cut the cord and get a smoking good deal on a Roku Ultra 4K HDR streaming device will want to pay attention to this deal. Walmart is offering a Roku Ultra with Premium JBL Headphones in a single bundle. The listing says that the Roku Ultra and the headphones are 2019 models, so this isn't clearance for older hardware. Being the day after Black Friday, the discounted price on the bundle is impressive. The Roku Ultra and headphones bundle is on sale for $48, which is a $51 discount. Roku Ultra Streaming Media Player 4K/HD/HDR with Premium JBL Headphones 2019 - $51 off at $48 The Roku Ultra supports HD, 4K, and HDR content and has enhanced voice remote features to make it easier...

The Black Friday deals have been coming hot and heavy over the last week or so. One of the deals that got a lot of people excited over at Walmart was for the Apple Watch Series 3 at a very low price of $159. As most stores are apt to do, the stock was apparently very limited, and reports indicate that Walmart sold out in just three minutes. There were lots of people who had placed an order while the Apple Watch still showed in stock during the sale. The problem is that a lot of the people who placed their order while the smartwatch was showing in stock and received a confirmed order reply woke up Thanksgiving Day to an email from Walmart that said the wearable was out of stock and their order...
