Last week, the PlayStation 5 eventually got a release date for India and pre-order details. This arrives after months of confusion when it was found that Sony did not obtain (which was later resolved) its own IP in the country and late complied with local laws.
The company now appears to have cleared every hurdle necessary to launch the PS5 in India. This implies, however, that purchasing a PS5 would be a smooth operation. Many other retailers talking to IGN India have verified that their PS5 quantities for launch have not yet been allocated to them by Sony.
This implies that you should pre-order as soon as you can on the January 12 pre-order date if you want one the moment it is available. Sony has not said how many PS5s would be ready for launch in India, although sources tell us that 12,000 to 15,000 units would be ideal across all cities for an all-India launch. For the sake of comparison, the PS4 was launched in India with 4,500 units sold out in two weeks when it was released on 6 January 2014.
