Sony recently announced that it will launch the PlayStation 5 in India on February 2, suggesting improvements in the supply chain network that was severely impacted last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pre-order for the new gaming console in India would begin from January 12 and would be widely available pre-order from a number of retailers including Amazon India, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games the Shop, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales, the company said. The PlayStation 5 is priced at Rs 49,990, while the digital edition of the console will sell at Rs 39,990. Xbox Series X, in comparison, is listed for Rs 49,999 on the official xbox site in India, and Xbox Series S sells at Rs 34,990. Both the consoles launched in India in November.
However, Microsoft has been struggling to meet the demand for the new Xbox consoles in India. The Xbox Series X is facing so much shortage in the country that it’s not even easy to locate its page on Amazon India.
