Sony India will begin accepting pre-orders for the Playstation 4 very soon, and a 2013 India launch of the console has been confirmed.
Some good news for those of us craving to get our hands on the next gen console from Sony, as very soon the Playstation 4 will be put up for pre-order, according to an announcement on its India website.
Sony has clarified that there is still no official confirmation on the launch date, however the PS4 will be launched in India this calender year. Sony India's country head for PlayStation, Atindriya Bose was quoted saying that "(the) India launch date will be declared at a later stage. The segregation of the launch dates has been done to have the best launch possible in each of the territories backed by adequate stocks available at launch date. The India launch date is being planned based on the logistics requirements and local market planning. The current exchange rate fluctuations mean that we will be able to declare the final launch price (both for the console as well as the games) at a date closer to the launch date."
The PS4 is already available for pre-order on Indian gaming website Game4u.com. You can book the console by giving Rs.3,000 as bank deposit, which later would be deducted from the total amount. The pre-ordered console will be available a week prior to the market launch of the console.
