Sony’s PS5 gaming console went on pre-order in India on January 12. It launched in India on February 2. If you weren’t one of the fortunate few that got the console at launch, then it looks like you will have to wait for some time before the console is officially available in India again.
When will the PS5 restock in India?
After the first wave of pre-orders, Sony confirmed that there would not be a second round of pre-orders for the PS5 in India. Now that the console has launched, it is hard to get one from any of the popular online and offline retailers. While units are available via the parallel import market, they are priced quite high and gamers will have to shell out upwards of Rs 80,000 to get one.
As far as Sony India Centres are concerned, IGN India has spoken to several of them and there is no information on when the console will be back in stock.
Twitter handle @PS5India is another source to track for the availability of the console.
