PS5 India Restock Pre-Orders Go Live on June 23
Sony’s own retail arm, ShopAtSC has announced that PS5 India restock pre-orders for the month of June will go live this week. The PS5 India restock pre-order date is June 23 and includes both the standard disc version as well as the digital edition. These were spotted by IGN reader Heisenreborn, who tipped us off on the same. The PS5 India restock pre-order time is 12pm much like past efforts. Expect it to be available on Amazon and Flipkart as well.
This follows IGN India’s report stating that the PS5 would be available for pre-order again this month.
Keep in mind that this restock should not force buyers to purchase additional games or accessories.
Sony has instructed its retail partners to not force bundles onto customers. Rather, they should also give them a choice of buying the PS5 as is, with no extra games or accessories. While IGN India first reported this a week ago, several other sources reached out to confirm that this is indeed the case.
It is unknown how many stores will get stock of the PS5. The ongoing covid-19 pandemic has made it tough for Sony to distribute consoles in the country. With recent PS5 restocks sporting a February date, later shipments landed in April, which Sony is yet to make available.
This follows the fan base rallying around the #RestockPS5India hashtag on Twitter, the community’s zero tolerance policy against scalpers, and assistance in the form of user-created bots to help would be buyers as well as a petition.
The Indian gaming community has been incredibly vocal about being treated with respect, on par with the company’s customers in developed markets.
With Microsoft’s Xbox Series S taking retail by storm, the company’s 90 percent market share is under threat. It’ll be interesting to see how Sony manages to navigate these issues.
