Sony launched the PlayStation 5 globally in November last year, with the sales in India beginning in February 2021. Since its launch, the PlayStation 5 has been in heavy demand. So much so that even several months after the official launch, the PS5 is still a rare commodity. The PlayStation 5 standard edition is priced at Rs 49,990 in India and the Digital Edition is priced at Rs 39,990. With the console being listed on Flipkart as well, it is possible that retailers like Amazon and Flipkart may also open pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 in the coming days.
The PlayStation 5 went on pre-orders on the Sony Center website on May 17 last time for both the standard and Digital Editions. This was the first time the Digital Edition went on sale in the country. The PlayStation 5 was sold out on the Sony Center website few minutes after the pre-orders went live earlier this month.
