The Sony PlayStation 5 will go on sale today on various online and offline platforms. The PS5 is still a hot property even almost one year after its global launch. India started off sales much later and the supply is still not being able to match up with the demand. The semiconductor shortage could be to blame. However, buyers have a chance to pre-order the new generation gaming console today. There has been a long break since the last restock that happened in the month of October. More buyers are expected to try their luck at pre-booking the gaming console today. Also Read - Next 3 Call of Duty games likely to launch on PS, irrespective of Microsoft's Activision acquisition

How to make sure that you get your PS5 pre-booked
-This is the tenth time the PS5 has received a restock in India and the demand is still pretty high. Expect units to get sold out within minutes if not seconds.
-The best option is to involve more people in order to maximize the possibility of booking the console
-Try both desktop and mobile applications of e-commerce websites. If one fails, the other will still be an option
-If doing the booking alone, make sure to keep multiple tabs open in advance with separate sellers
-Stay logged in these e-commerce websites and also make sure to have saved all the necessary payment information along with the address. This will ensure a speedy checkout.
-Some buyers might experience lag when trying to make the booking. The best way to steer clear from it is to switch to a reliable WiFi connection, preferably at home.
-Ensure that not many devices are connected to the WiFi or are streaming heavy videos at the time of booking.
Despite all the efforts, you need to understand that the number of people trying to book the PS5 will be very high and there are a lot of variables in place which could lead to a failed attempt.
