It’s been a while since a PS5 restock in India, but it looks like players won’t have too wait much longer to try and grab Sony’s next-gen console. Pre-bookings for the PlayStation 5 are set to open on December 6, 12 PM (Noon), and stock will be available with major retailers such as Amazon, ShopatSC, GamesTheShop, and more.
As previously reported, the restock was earlier scheduled to happen towards the end of November, but the dates were pushed back to December. This might very well be the last restock for the year in India, so if you were looking to grab a next-gen console for Christmas this year, this might be it.

PlayStation 5 pre-bookings open at December 6, 12 PM
The December 6 restock will include both the standard PlayStation 5 as well as the Digital Edition. The standard variant costs Rs 49,990 while the Digital Edition is priced at Rs 39,990. The difference in pricing comes from the lack of an optical disc drive in the Digital Edition. Essentially, the Digital Edition will not be able to run discs, and can only run games bought digitally through the PlayStation Store.
The console is likely to be in extremely high demand so stock is likely to fly off the shelf quite quickly, as witnessed in the previous restocks in the country where stocks lasted only minutes. The PlayStation 5 has been a resounding success for Sony as the console, within the first year of launch, became the fastest-selling console in the history of the company.
The PlayStation 5 has a number of great games on offer, both third-party and first-party titles such as Hitman 3, Far Cry 6, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. The imminent future of the console looks pretty of great titles are scheduled for release in Early 2022 and beyond.
