Finally, the much-awaited Sony PlayStation 5 is now available for sale in India after months of waiting and series of pre-bookings.
The next-generation gaming console by Sony has been the talk of the town for quite some time now and ever since its launch back on November 2020, the PlayStation 5 have been out of stocks. In India, the pre-orders started and the units were sold within seconds. Some e-commerce platforms took pre-orders by could not deliver the products.
The demand for Sony’s PlayStation 5 has been skyrocketing since its launch but the company has affirmatively not been able to deliver the consoles on time. The reason behind this delay is the disruption in the supply chain caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the digital edition of the PS5 that comes without the disk drive costs INR 39,990 and the standard edition of the console is priced at Rs 10,000 more at INR 49,990. There is absolutely no difference between the two models except that the Standard version of the PlayStation5 will give users the ability to run Blu-rays and DVDs on their consoles.
