PS5 restocking: How to buy Sony’s flagship game console in India

Sony’s PlayStation 5 is on sale today in India through various online and offline platforms. As a reminder, the Sony PS5 was launched to the world last year and the device went on sale in India much later.

Sony has so far been unable to meet demand for the console as the PS5 is often out of stock. One of the main issues with the availability of the device is the minimum stock of PS5. Sony did not restock the PS5 in November.

The same reason is attributed to the global semiconductor shortage amid the pandemic. Now, customers will potentially be able to pre-order Sony’s latest and greatest gaming console. The last restocking of the device took place in October.

Sony PlayStation 5: Pre-order

Customers will be able to pre-order the Sony PlayStation 5 through Amazon, Flipkart, Sony Center, Croma, Vijay Sales, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card and Reliance Digital from 12 p.m. The PS5 and PS5 Digital will be available for purchase starting today.

While the Blu-ray-equipped PS5 was priced at Rs 49,990, users will be able to purchase the digital edition of the console at Rs 39,990.

To note: While trying to buy the device, through Flipkart and Amazon, we were unsuccessful because the PlayStation 5 quickly sold out. This means the company has still not been able to restock the device to meet demand.

Sony PS5: Specifications

Sony’s PS5 is powered by AMD’s Zen 2 processor and a custom graphics processor from AMD based on Sony’s RDNA 2 architecture, which delivers 10.28 teraflops of power with 36 compute units running at 2.23 GHz each. System memory is clocked at 16 GB. The new console will support real-time ray tracing for advanced visual effects and will have a solid-state drive (SSD). The storage size is 825 GB. In addition, the PS5 will also support 3D audio.

The specifications of the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition standard are almost the same. Both devices have the same graphics level, the same design and the same fast SSD. But there is a little difference between the consoles. While the standard PS5 has the disc player, the PS5 Digital Edition does not have a disc player, although both consoles have the same design.
