Sony PS5 India Release has been a long, long wait. After a global launch that started in November, we have seen the rest of the world get multiple restocks while the Sony PS5 stock has stayed limited. However, it looks like India’s turn is finally here.
Sony had been staying mum on the PS5 India launch date despite the console having made it to most parts of the world early. After nearly radio silence on the issue, and a rumoured January 2021 launch window, Sony has just announced that they will be launching the PS5 in India on February 2. Here’s all we know about the PS5 India launch right now.
Sony PS5 Launching in India on February 2nd, Preorders to Begin 12th January

Sony India has chosen to kickstart the new year with PS5 India launch reveal for us. Sony PS5 will launch in India on the 2nd of February, 2021. Pre-orders will go live on the 12th of January, 2021, at 12 PM.
The retailers that will have the PS5 for pre-orders are Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, Shop at Sony Center, Vijay Sales and select other authorized Sony retail partners.
We have no direct mention about the stock availability, or whether there will be a staggered rollout. We had previously discussed a report by The Mako Reactor that said that the metro cities would be getting the offline stocks first, followed by other locations two weeks later. However, the online stocks are most likely to be available nationwide, so with some elbow grease and quick fingers, you should be able to cop one at launch.
The Sony PS5 will cost Rs 39,990 for the Digital Edition, and Rs 49,990 for the standard edition in India. First-party game prices are also expected to be revealed in the coming days, as well as those of the accessories like the DualSense controller.
Stay tuned to us for more on the Sony PS5 India release!
