Sony India has finally announced the launch date for PS5 in India. In a Twitter announcement the company has said that PS5 will launch in India on 2nd February & pre-orders will begin on 12th of Jan 2021.
Sony India had faced much backlash from Indian gamers due to their lack of information about the PS5 launch in India. Not only that but Sony India had officially announced the PS5 price 17th of Oct yet no release date was announced.
The gaming console will be available for the price of ₹39990 & ₹49990 for the Digital & Disk Edition of PS5.
Earlier Sony India had to deal with the PS5 trademark, where the PS5 trademark was registered by a Delhi guy named Hitesh Aswani even before Sony could register it. We have covered an in-depth article upon PS5 Trademark which you can check here.
Sony on Twitter announced –
We are happy to annouce that PS5 shall be launched in India on the 2nd of February, 2021 – Pre Orders For PS5 shall begin 12PM on the 12th of January and shall be available for Pre-Orders (until stock lasts at respective retailer) at Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, Shop at Sony Center, Vijay Sales & Select other authorized Retail Partners.
We take this opportunity to once more thank our Playstation ethusiasts for their patience & enthusiasm around PS5.
So PS5 will be available for orders from these retailers –
- Vijay Sales
- Shop At Sony Center
- Games The Shop
- Reliance Digital
The demand for PS5 in India has been greater than what it was assumed to be. We think you can only secure official PS5 until in India via pre-orders, we cannot guarantee if there will be enough stock to suffice the demand.
So, be sure to preorder PS5 from the listed retailers on 12th Jan from 12 PM onwards. It is unclear if you need to pay the full price to pre-order PS5 or pay some amount. Guess we need to wait until the retailers confirm anything.
