PlayStation 5 Restock India: In India, the PS5 regular version costs Rs. 49,990.
In India, the Sony PlayStation 5 is finally having a restock. That’s right, you heard that correctly. According to a page on the Sony Center website that was recently discovered. Pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 will begin on May 17 at a Sony-authorized Sony Center. The PlayStation 5 was first released in India in February of this year, and it sold out in minutes. Since then, it has not been restocked. There are two versions of the PlayStation 5: a standard cd edition and a digital edition. Only the regular version with a disc drive has been released in India so far. Pre-orders for the Sony PlayStation 5 will begin on May 17 at 12 p.m. (noon) IST, according to a banner on the Sony Center website. It is unknown if the Sony PlayStation 5 will get any extra discounts as part of this restock.
Restocks of the PlayStation 5 are expected to arrive soon in India, as Sony-authorized retailer Sony Center has announced PS5 consoles for pre-order beginning May 17. Sony’s next-generation console, which was released in the country in February, has been in short supply since the first shipment of consoles sold out in minutes as pre-orders began in January. The PS5 is available in two versions: standard and digital. For the time being, Sony has only made the former model available to Indian consumers.
Pre-order details for the PlayStation 5
The Sony Center website has a banner announcing the PS5 pre-order details. Customers should pre-book the console beginning May 17 at 12 p.m., according to the website (noon). The regular version would cost Rs. 49,990, which comes as no surprise. There is no indication as to when shipping will begin.
Late Tuesday, the PS5 Digital Edition was officially announced for pre-order on the Sony Center web store, with pre-orders beginning on May 17. However, TechFoogle couldn’t find a reference for the Digital Edition on the website at the time of publishing.
The PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is not mentioned on the website, indicating that Sony would stick to its strategy of only selling the PlayStation 5 with a disc drive in India. Other online retailers such as Flipkart, Amazon, and Reliance Digital are yet to open pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 Official Website: ShopAtSC.
It’s also worth noting that Sony Center is a Sony-affiliated third-party retailer. As a result, the PS5’s pre-order availability can not be construed as an official restock alert from Sony.
Reliance Digital officially classified the PS5 as in stock and received orders from customers earlier this month. However, some customers quickly began complaining that their orders had been canceled and that the online store had released refunds.
When the PS5 was first made available for pre-order in India in January, it was fully sold out within minutes. Since then, India and several other countries have experienced a severe shortage of PS5 stock. Sony alerted a group of investors earlier this week that the PS5 would be in low supply for the rest of the year. Sony announced in its financial statements that the PS5 had sold 7.8 million units as of March 31. It is also expected to sell at least 14.8 million units in the current fiscal year.
Customers will have to wait to see whether other Indian retailers start taking pre-orders for the PS5 on May 17.
