This Is the Cheapest PS5 Game in India Right Now
Sony’s Destruction AllStars India price makes it the cheapest PS5 game on the console thus far. Initially free for PS Plus subscribers, the vehicular combat game is gracing the PS5 with a first week July release date — in line with when the PS5 restock deliveries should happen. The Destruction AllStars India price is Rs. 1,499 on disc, which is as much as it costs on the PlayStation India Store digitally.
Details regarding Destruction AllStars’ India price and release date were made public on Bollywood-focussed retailer Games The Shop. Other stores should have it listed soon.
Earlier Sony had planned to release the game in the country at Rs. 4,999 however, after its India sales team realised it was going to be free on PS Plus, common sense prevailed.
For context, most PS5 games have a Rs. 3,999 price. Unless of course they’re from Sony (with Miles Morales and now Destruction AllStars being the two exceptions) or Activision — in which case we’re looking at prices from Rs. 4,999 upward.
This is a welcome move from Sony. During the India Gaming Conference and Show 2021 PlayStation boss Prosenjit Ghosh stated that Indian gamers want lower pricing along with a sustained demand for international content. This was in response to other panelists suggesting that Indian gamers want only Indian games.
“[Indian gamers want] better price,” he said at the time. “They don’t want Indian content only, [they’re] okay with international content.”
This should come as no surprise with PS5 exclusives costing Rs. 5,000 which is roughly Rs. 1,000 more than most third-party games on the console, making it highly prohibitive to buy games on launch day.
