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.
