PlayStation 5, most commonly referred to as PS5, finally received a release date and pre-order date in India. The PS5 will be up for pre-orders in India starting January 12th at 12pm on Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, Shop at Sony Center, Vijay Sales, and a few other select retailers. Following this, the console will be released on February 2nd. However, before you go ahead and preorder the PS5 in India, it would be only fair to compare the PS5 price in India with other regions around the world. In case you have a relative or a friend coming from either of these countries, you can probably save some money getting the console this way. While you will have to sacrifice the one-year warranty that you will get with an official Indian unit of the PS5, we would leave it up to you if the price difference is worth it or not. Another aspect that you can consider will be the limited PS5 availability in India at launch. Now that we have discussed the factors that validate this comparison, let’s dive into the PS5 pricing around the world.
