Sony will launch the PlayStation 5 in India on Friday, February 2, recommending improving the network for the supply chain of the coronary virus.
The Japanese company has announced that it will start pre-ordering the new game control platform in India, the world’s second-largest internet market, from January 12. The control platform will be pre-ordered from a number of retailers, including Amazon India and Flipkart. The company said it would sell Croma, Reliance Digital, a game store, Sony center, and Vijay.
The PlayStation 5 is priced at Rs 49,990 ($ 685), while the digital version of the control platform is priced at Rs 39,990 ($ 550) in India. The Xbox Series X is priced at $ 685 in India and the Xbox Series S is priced at $ 480. Like anywhere else in the world, Microsoft is working to meet the demand for a new Xbox control platform in India. The Xbox Series X is in short supply in the country and its page is not easy to find on Amazon India.
Today’s statement should allay the concerns of loyal PlayStation fans, some of whom, including you, of course, have secured a place in the gray market at a high price since India did not make its first national waves for the PS5 in recent months. . Netizens are frustrated that Sony and its partners have not commented on the possibility of a new gaming platform launching in recent months or provided conflicting accounts.
In November, Sony announced that it had delayed the launch of the PS5 in India due to local import regulations. Game news website Mako Reactor reported earlier this week that Sony is unlikely to provide warranty and after-sales support for PlayStation 5 accessories in India – just like the previous generations.
India is not yet a big market for a full game control platform. Industry estimates suggest that Sony and Microsoft have sold only hundreds of thousands of previous-generation control platforms in the country. Tens of millions of Indians have embraced mobile gaming in recent years, driven by the proliferation of low-cost Android smartphones and the world’s cheapest mobile data tariff.
