PS5 restocking update: How to pre-order Sony’s flagship game console in India

After a long wait, Sony’s hit PlayStation 5 is once again available for purchase in India. As of noon today, the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will be up for pre-order. Amazon, Flipkart, Sony Center, Reliance Digital, Vijay Sales, Games The Shop will have the PS5 in stock. That said, the availability of the PlayStation 5 is limited by supply issues. PS5’s fresh stock usually sells out in under five minutes, so it’s a good idea to visit retailer websites individually and check for restocking updates.

How much does the PlayStation 5 cost?

PlayStation 5 costs 49 990 rupees. Meanwhile, the PS5 digital edition will set you back 39 990 rupees. The differences between the two PlayStation 5 models are not great.

PlayStation 5: Specifications, Games

The PlayStation 5 is Sony’s best gaming model and sports a built-in 4K Blu-ray player. The console is more powerful than its predecessor, the PlayStation 4, in terms of graphics prowess and performance. It aims to deliver games in 4K resolution and has a super-fast SSD. That being said, you won’t be able to see great graphics unless you have a 4K TV at home. The PS5 has an impressive library of games, including Spider-Man: Mile Morales, Demon souls and Return, to only cite a few. Ratchet and Clank is coming soon, while the much anticipated Horizon forbidden to the west will debut this fall.

PlayStation 5 shortages: the current situation

Since Sony launched the PS5 last year, it has struggled with stockouts. This is due to a problem with the semiconductor power supply. Don’t expect these supply constraints to be corrected anytime soon. Bloomberg recently reported that the PS5’s stockouts will continue through 2022. Microsoft is another company with a short-lived shortage issue. Its Xbox Series X continues to be sold at major retailers around the world. The tech giant said it expects supply issues to continue until at least the second half of the year. Chipmaker AMD is supplying components for the two next-gen consoles.
