Sony PS5 India launch, pre-order date

Sony says the PS5 will officially go on sale on February 2, 2021. However, given that stocks are limited, pre-orders will open on January 12 at 12 pm. The pre-orders will open on Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, Shop at Sony Center, Vijay Sales and select other authorised retail partners, according to an official statement from the company. The PS5 has seen a lot demand and there have been shortages reported in other countries.

According to a Reuters report in November, PS5 was sold out in the US and in Japan at almost all major retailers and some even conducted a lottery system for the sale. So keep this in mind if you are planning to get a PS5 as the wait might be longer.
