Sony PlayStation 5 India launch details

But, do note that the stocks might be limited as the official statement highlights, the pre-orders will go on until stocks last at these retailers. Some earlier reports by The Mako Reactor (a leading source for everything PS5 and gaming news related) suggests a major portion of the stocks will be with e-commerce giants Amazon and Flipkart. A major chunk of the remaining will be with official Sony-authorized stores in the metro cities. This means your local electronics stores might not have a PS5 on the shelf anytime soon. Not just that, the situation could be even dire for the PS5 Digital Edition, whose availability is considered much lower…or so the reports claim.
Nevertheless, be ready to snag one as soon as the pre-booking starts on the 12th of Jan. And don’t forget! The actual launch date is from February 2nd.
