Highlights
  • PS5 price in India is Rs. 49,990, Digital Edition at Rs. 39,990
  • PlayStation 5 pre-orders open at 12pm noon on Wednesday
  • PS5 Digital Edition is not exclusive to Sony Center this time

PlayStation 5 is back. 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 go up for sale again in India. All of Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales will be involved — and unlike last time, when PS5 Digital Edition was exclusive to Sony Center, it will now be available everywhere. That would suggest there's more stock of the digital-only cousin than we had in May, but it's also split across retailers so it still might not last very long. Of course, there are bigger hassles, be it several sites being repeatedly unable to handle the load (hi, Croma, Games The Shop, and Prepaid Gamer Card), or pre-orders being cancelled afterwards (hello, Flipkart and Reliance Digital).

Thankfully, the biggest worry of all — the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic — should be less of an issue for most folks this time. With India slowly emerging out of the debilitating second coronavirus wave, most states have lifted delivery restrictions on non-essential items. Still, all online PlayStation 5 retailers note that deliveries are based on local guidelines, with Sony Center website ShopAtSC explicitly saying as much: “We intend to deliver your allocated stocks around 3rd July, 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.” I would expect Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, and Vijay Sales to ship PS5 pre-orders from Saturday, July 3 as well.

The June PlayStation 5 restock is big for fans of the PS5 Digital Edition, as this is the only second time that the console will be made available in India. Then again, the situation hasn't been much better for those wanting the Blu-ray option, with Wednesday's pre-orders being the fourth official PS5 restock in India.

How to pre-order PS5 via ShopAtSC

Sony India's retail shops Sony Center have their own website through which you can buy the PlayStation 5. ShopAtSC offers free home delivery from the nearest Sony Center, but you can also choose to pick up from the nearest store from July 3 onward. If they are open, naturally.

You will need an account to buy the PS5 from ShopAtSC. Create one in advance to speed up checkout. If you previously bought a PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition, you won't be able to buy another from the same account, ShopAtSC says. The site does have a notify me button in case you want to set that up.

ShopAtSC offers low-cost EMI on select credit cards, and easy EMI options on most debit and credit cards.

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

Mukesh Ambani-run Reliance Digital will also offer the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition in India. All orders will qualify for free home delivery.

It's worth noting that Reliance Digital had trouble servicing both PS5 and Xbox Series X pre-orders, going so far to cancel many orders because it had overbooked.

How to pre-order PS5 via 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 customers 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.
