Sony’s online store ShopAtSC has updated its PlayStation 5 section with a banner that mentions the date and time of pre-orders for the standard version of the PS5. As mentioned, customers will be able to order it from 12 noon IST (noon) on January 18. Its delivery will start from February 8. However, ShopAtSC says that the delivery date will depend on the location and that lockdown or curfew restrictions in some areas may delay the delivery. Sony Center is currently only advertising the regular Blu-ray version of the PS5 for January 18th, and there’s no mention of a discless PS5 digital edition.
Also, Amazon has also announced that it will restart PlayStation 5 on January 18 at 12 noon (noon). However, no date of delivery has been given by the e-commerce platform yet.
Several other websites including Flipkart, Games the Shop, Vijay Sales, Prepaid Gamer Card and Croma have consoles listed on their respective sites without any pre-order date. These platforms are also expected to make the PS5 standard version live on the same date.
The new restock in 2022 comes almost three weeks after the PlayStation 5 last went on sale in India on December 28. Like all previous sale dates, the console sold out within minutes.
PlayStation 5 was launched globally in November 2020 and reached India in early 2021. PS5 is priced at Rs. 49,990 for the standard version, while the digital version costs Rs. 39,990.
