Sony has opened its first PlayStation Store in the offline market in India. Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) has been selling its gaming console via various online and offline channels in India all these years. Customers looking to buy the PlayStation 5 (PS5) have had to rely on various online websites, such as ShopatSC, Amazon, and Flipkart and offline stores, such as Reliance Digital, Vijay Sales, etc. The new dedicated PlayStation store could help buyers get access to the popular gaming console in India.
The piece of information about Sony opening its dedicated PlayStation-only store in India was shared by industry insider Rishi Alwani. From the details available, it looks like Sony has partnered with a third-party retailer to open its first PlayStation Store in India.
India’s capital city Delhi gets the first Sony PlayStation Store. DT Zone is reportedly the official partner for Sony’s first partner for the offline store. Alwani shared images of the new store, which is currently up and running in Punjabi Bagh, Delhi.
The store will be a one-stop shop for various Sony gaming console needs. These include the PlayStation, Sony’s Dual Sense gaming controllers, headsets, etc. Customers might also be able to purchase some titles directly from the store. However, there is no official word on the same.
The store images further highlight the PlayStation Plus membership plans, which gives players access to a large catalogue of games. It also provides access to other features, such as Game Trials and Classics Catalogue. The subscription plan can be activated from the official website. However, it looks like customers might now have the option to get the PlayStation Plus membership through the offline store as well.
PS Plus membership plans in India have three different tiers. The base Essential plan has a monthly rental of Rs 499 and goes all the way up to Rs 2,999 for the entire year. Next, there is the PS Plus Extra plan, which starts from Rs 749 per month and costs Rs 4,999 for 12 months. The top-tier Deluxe plan has a monthly fee of Rs 849 and goes all the way up to Rs 5,749 for the annual subscription.
You can take advantage of the range of titles and other PS Plus features only when you have a PS4 or PS5, of course. Sony recently slashed the price of the PS5 by Rs 5,000. Customers can avail the limited-period offer during the next restock. At the time of writing this, there is no word from the brand on the expiration date of the discount offer in India.
The discount is applicable to all variants. The standard variant cost Rs 49,990, whereas the Digital edition will cost Rs 39,990. The God of War Ragnarok Bundle will be available for Rs 54,990 in India. Sony has had a successful run in India with its consoles. The company has reportedly sold over 1,00,000 devices in India in 2022.
