PS5 DualSense Cosmic Red, Midnight Black India Release Date Is July 12
The PS5 DualSense Midnight Black and Cosmic Red colour options have an India release date of July 12. Mcube Games already has them listed and expect other retailers like Vijay Sales, Amazon, and Flipkart to follow suit. The Midnight Black DualSense price is Rs. 5,990 much like the standard white option while the Cosmic Red DualSense price is Rs. 6,390.
Neither of these versions have any internal differences compared to the regular white controller so if you were expecting something a little less drift-prone, think again. That said, Sony’s warranty, while obfuscated, should provide you some cover. You can check out the PS5 DualSense warranty details right here.
The short and skinny of it is this: official DualSense purchases made in India will have a 12 month warranty according to the manual uploaded on Sony’s own site. This is odd considering that Sony had informed retailers in India during PS5 training sessions that the DualSense controller as well as other accessories like the HD Camera and media remote would not have warranty in India.
This policy has been in place since the PS2 era though we wonder what the logic is behind not offering any warranty on the DualSense controller what with its high price and reports of adaptive triggers dying.
While Sony is yet to get back to us on this issue officially, multiple sources at the company familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified discussing private information have stated that “standard warranty terms apply” for all PS5 accessories and controllers.
Incidentally July 12 is the same day as the PS5 India restock.
Earlier in the week IGN India was the first to report that July would see a PS5 restock. The PS5 India price is Rs. 49,990 for the standard version with a disc drive and Rs. 39,990 for the digital version.
Both will be available at all outlets though expect fewer stocks of the latter. Not a bad thing considering digital game discounts are less frequent and the PS5 Digital Edition itself is a potential paperweight.
Hopefully this restock sees stores playing by Sony’s rules regarding no forced PS5 bundles. Though considering how some game stores have been operating in bad faith, we’re sceptical on how it would be enforced.
