Since Sony authorized reseller Sony Center began pre-ordering the PS5 console on May 17, India is expected to have the restocking of the PlayStation 5 soon.
After pre-orders began in January, the first batch of consoles from games sold out in a few minutes. PS5 is divided into two models: the standard version and the digital version. The former is the only model Sony currently offers to Indian customers.
PlayStation 5 Pre-Order Details – A banner was posted on the Sony Center website announcing the details of the PS5 pre-order. This shows that customers can reserve the console starting at 12 noon (noon) on May 17.
The standard version will sell out at Rs. 49,990. There is currently no information on when shipments are expected to begin. The digital version of the PS5 will also reportedly be pre-ordered on the Sony Center online portal on May 17.
However, at the time of writing, Gadgets 360 could not find the digital version of the listing on the website. It should be noted that at the time of writing, there is no pre-order list for the next generation of game consoles.
Other leading online portals such as Amazon, Flipkart, and Reliance Digital. It should also be noted that Sony Center is a third-party retail partner of Sony. Therefore, the pre-order availability of the PS5 should not be considered an official restocking update from the manufacturer.
Earlier this month, Reliance Digital reportedly listed the spot inventory of the PS5 and the orders accepted by customers. However, several users soon began reporting that their orders were canceled and refunded by online retailers. In January, when the PS5 was first booked in India, the console sold out within minutes.
Since then, there has been a severe PS5 stock shortage in India and several other countries around the world. Sony warned a group of analysts earlier this week that there will still be a PS5 shortage next year. In reporting financial results, Sony said that, as of March 31, it had sold 7.8 million PS5s.
The company also stated that its target sales for this fiscal year are at least 14.8 million units. As of May 17, it remains to be seen if other Indian sellers will accept PS5 pre-orders as well.
