PlayStation 5 Price: Sony is expected to reduce the price of its popular PlayStation 5 console in India, according to industry insider Rishi Alwani. Beginning on April 1, the company will reportedly offer a special summer promotional discount of ₹5,000 on both the Console and Digital variants of the PS5.
The offer is a limited-time deal that brings the PlayStation 5 console’s price down to its original cost of ₹39,990 for the Console variant and ₹49,990 for the Digital variant, which was the price before the November price hike. The PS5 God of War Ragnarök bundle will also be available at a discounted price of ₹54,990.
The PS5 has been in high demand since its 2020 launch, particularly due to the global chip shortage. However, Sony recently announced this would no longer be an issue, resulting in fewer restocking problems in India. The PS5 discounted price offer will be available on various platforms, including Flipkart, Amazon, Croma, Games The Shop, and Vijay Sales.
