PlayStation 5 price in India has finally been revealed. 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). In addition to the PlayStation pricing, Sony has revealed that the new DualSense controller will be priced at Rs. 5,990, HD Camera at Rs. 5,190, Pulse 3D Wireless Headset at Rs. 8,590, Media Remote at Rs. 2,590, and DualSense Charging Station at Rs. 2,590.

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.

Along with the hardware, prices of five games have been revealed as well which were featured in the showcase event earlier this year,

Demon’s Souls – Rs 4,999
Destruction Allstars – Rs 4,999
Marvel Spiderman Miles Morales Ultimate Edition – Rs 4,999
Sackboy A Big Adventure – Rs 3,999
Marvel Spiderman: Miles Morales – Rs 3,999

The flagship model of PS5 will be able to run games in 4K resolution at 120fps. Earlier Sony also announced that 99 per cent of PS4 games will be able to run on the next-gen console as well.

While it’s great to see Sony finally sharing PS5 pricing details for India, we still don’t know when the console will launch in the country. Sony hasn’t revealed availability information yet, and it looks like the console may be delayed in the country. As a refresher, Sony still doesn’t own the PS5 trademark in India, and it is possible that could be the delay in launching the console in the country.

“We know that gamers in India are excited to get their hands on PS5. Availability in each country is subject to, amongst other things, local import regulations, and our local teams are working through the logistics. We will share an update on launch date for India as more information becomes available,” Sony said in its media release.
