To recall, the PS5 went on pre-orders at multiple online retailers including Amazon, Games The Shop and more, on January 12. the gaming console sold out like hot cakes within just 10 minutes of going live, across all channels. This was sort of expected, considering the same has happened globally. This could be because of the extreme demand and limited stock due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Sony India after the pre-orders were closed did suggest that the pre-orders would make a comeback. It urged its customers to stay in touch with retailers for the next pre-order phase.

The company in its statement has stated that it does not plan to open another pre-order phase. And it recommends interested people to stay in touch with retailers for future pre-order updates.

Keep in mind that due to the global shortage, you could end up waiting a long time to get the PS5 in India even after its launch on February 2. There is a similar situation in the global markets with orders for the console, thus frustrating customers. Apart from this, the company has also not revealed when it will be bringing the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition to India.

PlayStation 5 is priced at Rs 49,990 for the standard version in India. And the Digital Edition will be priced at Rs 39,990, whenever the company decides to launch it in the country.
