Sony’s much-hyped PlayStation 5, which went on sale for the first time in India today was sold out within minutes soon after it was available for pre-order today. The online pre-orders for the product began at 12pm today on several e-commerce portals such as Amazon, Flipkart and Sony Center, Reliance Digital and more. Within a couple of minutes, all websites said the PS5 was either sold out or not available, baffling many game enthusiasts.
“PS5 has met with unprecedented enthusiasm by PlayStation fans in India, resulting in a stockout during the pre-order period,” Sony said in a press statement, adding that “keeping the current situation in mind, we kindly urge all customers to keep their health and safety first and refrain from visiting any retail store to pre-order a PS5. Please stay in touch with retailers for the next pre-order phase“, the company said
Additionally, the PlayStation 5 priced at Rs. 49,990 in India is a 4K UHD Blu-ray drive edition and was the only option given to Indian PlayStation fans, as the company decided not to bring PS5 Digital Edition to India as of now.
