To recall, PS5 made its debut globally in November 2020, but the pre-orders for the console in India started in January this year. Given the anticipation around PS5, it went out of stock online five minutes after the sale opened in India. It was made available on e-commerce sites like Amazon and Flipkart as well as via offline retails stores across the country.

As for the price, the PlayStation 5 is available for Rs 49,990 for the normal edition. The digital edition of PS5 is priced in India at Rs 39,990. As of now, there is no word on the PS5 restock, though an IGN India report did suggest that the restock was scheduled to happen during the second week of April, which clearly did not happen.

The report added that there will be plenty of gaming consoles to go around this time, compared to only 4,000 units that were made available in the Indian market when it was launched. Of course, we will need to wait for an official word to know more.
