PS5 India Restock Deliveries Under Way
PS5 orders placed during the June 23 restock have begun shipping to customers. Several IGN India readers reached out confirming that they’ve already received their PS5s while others have stated they’re en route. Retailers that have shipped PS5 restock orders include Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, ShopAtSC, and Amazon to name a few.
Previously, IGN India reported that Sony had given retail a tentative July 3 ship date. However, we also reported that in the past we’ve seen PS5 orders fulfilled in a day or two after going up for sale. While Sony doesn’t comment on restocks, it’s safe to say that the July 3 date gives the company and its retail partners enough of a buffer zone in the event of logistics and operational issues.

And while the June 23 restock is on the lower side versus the last two in May, sources tell us the next restock is planned for mid-July along with coloured controllers.
Pricing is not finalised yet but Sony is considering a Rs. 500 premium for the Cosmic Red version, while the Midnight Black option should have the same price as the standard white DualSense controller of Rs. 5,990.
This second slate of PS5 restocks in June sold out almost immediately. All retailers seem to have sold out of the console within a couple of minutes of pre-orders going live.

While most Indian retailers went out of stock for the PS5 almost immediately, Amazon India was notably able to hold on to stocks for a few minutes. Retailers like Games The Shop started having problems with their website just in time for the pre-orders to go live.
