Highlights
  • PS5 price in India is Rs. 49,990, Digital Edition at Rs. 39,990
  • PlayStation 5 pre-orders open at 12pm noon on Monday
  • Only the eighth time PlayStation 5 goes on sale in India

PS5's October restock is here. Today at 12pm noon, both variants of Sony's next-gen console — the Rs. 49,990 Blu-ray-equipped PS5, and its Rs. 39,990 disc-less counterpart PS5 Digital Edition — will be up for pre-order in India. If you are trying to buy PS5 online, Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales will let you do that. So far, the biggest problem has to be the minimal PS5 stock that Sony India is able to manage for India, month after month. The October 4 PlayStation 5 restock will be just the eighth time — fifth for PS5 Digital Edition — the flagship console is being made available for pre-order in India, with Sony unable to serve its fanbase properly. However, sources suggest that this time the numbers may be a little different, as Sony is finally able to increase supply.

Unfortunately, that has not been the the only hassle with buying a PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition in India. Every single time, several online retailers have shown themselves to be unable to handle the load. Croma, Games The Shop, and Prepaid Gamer Card are routine offenders — even Amazon had trouble once or twice — and Croma along with Flipkart and Reliance Digital are also known for cancelling PlayStation 5 pre-orders afterwards, due to their own technical challenges. At least restrictions on deliveries have eased. Though Sony Center website ShopAtSC continues with that boilerplate: “We intend to deliver your allocated stocks around 12th October, 2021 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.”

While the rest of the stores — Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, and Vijay Sales — hasn't given us shipping dates, expect them to be in line with Sony Center's estimates. For the June, July and August PlayStation 5 restocks, several customers reported on groups and forums that their PS5 pre-orders were shipped prior to the announced shipping date.

Walmart-owned Flipkart also has PlayStation 5 and PS5 Digital Edition restocked for pre-orders in India. It will also offer free home delivery across India.

How to pre-order PS5 on Prepaid Gamer Card

Bengaluru-based online games store Prepaid Gamer Card also has the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition back in stock. It too offers free home delivery everywhere in India, if deliveries are available.

Be warned, Prepaid Gamer Card has a habit of taking bundling to insane lengths. In May, it forced costumers to buy half a dozen games and accessories along with their PlayStation 5, with the total going over Rs. 85,000. The PS5 costs Rs. 49,990 on its own.

You don't need an account to buy the PS5 from Prepaid Gamer Card. But the website will create one for you during the checkout process, so you might as well have one. You will naturally need to provide an email address as well if you don't already an account.
