The Japanese electronics giant’s latest console will be up for pre-order on retailers such as Flipkart, Amazon, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, and Vijay Sales, and the company’s official Sony Centre stores.
This is the 17th re-stocking of the PlayStation 5 in India since its launch in January 2021. However, only the standard edition with a disc drive will be available for pre-orders. Gamers looking to nab the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition will have to sit this sale out. Buyers pre-ordering the console will get Rs 499 off on a PlayStation 5 and Gran Turismo 7 bundle — costing Rs 54,490 against a sticker price of Rs 54,990.
While the console’s availability has been an issue, users have also complained about getting their orders processed by Games The Shop, Flipkart, Croma. Reports suggest even Amazon has been plagued by the issues.
According to information on the Sony Centre website, buyers who pre-order their PlayStation 5 on Tuesday will get deliveries on or before June 30. However, the website added the caveat that there could be delays due to Covid-19 restrictions.
