After the discount, players can avail of the PS5 Standard version for Rs 49,990 and the PS5 Digital edition for Rs 39,990, which were the original prices when PS5 was launched. The God of War Ragnarok Bundle would cost Rs 54,990 instead of Rs 59,990.
In response to the fluctuating Indian currency and the economic recession, the corporation hiked the price of the Standard and Digital editions by 10 and 12.5 percent, respectively.
As usual, the console will be available through various online and offline stores including:
- Games The Shop
- Reliance Digital
- Other authorized Dealers
It is expected that this price reduction will turn up the attention of console gamers to the Sony PS5 series. With the launch of the console in early 2021, Sony has struggled to keep up with the enormous demand for the PS5 in India. However, the situation has been improvising this year, and we witnessed two restocks last month, which is unseen since the console’s launch. Sony has also stated that stock would also be available in physical stores.
Alwani’s newsletter claims that Sony has sold a total of 100,000 PS5 consoles last year. According to the newsletter, Sony sold around 100,000 devices in India last year. To tackle the stock issue, the console manufacturer has reportedly shipped 20,000 units to the country. With this new set of consoles, Sony intends to reduce supply issues and increase the gap with its competitor, the Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S.
