For fans who have still not gotten their hands on the PS5 (review), there’s some good news on the horizon. The last time the PS5 went up for pre-order in India was on July 26 while the next PS5 restock will take place exactly a month later on 26 August at 12 noon. Various publications have also confirmed that the PS5 will indeed be restocked on August 26. It’s been a harrowing time for gamers in India as a lot of gamers have still not been able to purchase a PS5. So, this comes as a welcome surprise. As of right now, only ShopAtSC and Vijay Sales have confirmed that the console will be available for pre-order on August 26. Other retailers like Amazon, Flipkart and more have the PS5 listing up but no pre-order date has been revealed yet.
The PS5 has a handful of exclusives such as Returnal (review), Demon Souls, Astro's Playroom, Destruction AllStars, to name a few. First party heavy hitters like Spider-Man Miles Morales (review), Sackboy: A Big Adventure and more are available on the PS4 as well. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (review) is exclusive to the PS5 only. Getting a next-gen console has been difficult but not completely impossible in India. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X (review) are hard to get and a big reason for this is the ongoing global chip shortage. You can learn more about it here.
Despite the global shortage, Sony says the PS5 is the best-selling console, with more than 7.8 million units sold. Sony still has highly anticipated games such as God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon: Forbidden West scheduled to launch in 2022 and 2021, respectively for the PS5.
