PS5 will be in stock in India once again today at 12 PM via popular online portals and offline stores across the country. However, only the standard variant will be up for pre-orders and not the Digital Edition. If you’re keeping count, this is only the 11th time the PS5 has been made available in India since its launch in February. According to insider Rishi Alwani, the PS5 India restock this time will be more limited than usual, which means the fastest fingers will be the only lucky ones to grab the latest gaming console from Sony. This comes in addition to the regular hassle of retailers/portals cancelling the order as they couldn’t handle the load.

Retailers like Chroma,  Games The Shop, Flipkart, and Reliance Digital have disappointed pre-orders in the past owing to technical challenges. Sony Center website ShopAtSC issued a statement about deliveries for December 28th pre-orders saying, “We intend to deliver your allocated stocks around 12th January 2022 and onwards — however, please expect a delay in our delivery services which might get impacted due to regulations imposed by lockdown/ curfew in your locations.” This is despite the easing of delivery restrictions across the country. While other outlets haven’t mentioned anything about deliveries, we expect them to be in line with Sony Centre’s estimate but there were reports in the past about early shipping.
