PlayStation 5 price in India has finally been revealed. The new development comes a month after Sony announced the pricing details of PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition in global markets including the US, the UK, and Australia. Nevertheless, the India release date of the PlayStation 5 series is still a mystery. PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition are initially coming to Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea Mexico, New Zealand, and the US on November 15.
PlayStation 5 is coming to the Indian market with a price tag of Rs. 49,990, while the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition carries a price tag of Rs. 39,990. In comparison, the US pricing of the PlayStation 5 is set at $499.99 (roughly Rs. 36,700) and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition at $399.99 (roughly Rs. 29,400).

Initially, Sony India had suggested November 19 as the launch date of the new PlayStation models, though it later redacted that date from its website.
Microsoft is bringing the Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X to the Indian market at Rs. 34,990 and Rs. 49,990, respectively. The Xbox Series S and Xbox Series S both are already available for pre-orders in the country and that global launch that includes the Indian market is set for November 10.
