For gamers who have still not gotten their hands on the PS5 (review), there’s some good news on the horizon. The next PS5 restock will take place at 12 pm on 12 July. Yes, that’s four days away. First reported by IGN India, multiple retailers have spoken to the publication and confirmed that the PS5 will indeed be restocked on July 12. It’s been a harrowing time for gamers in India as a lot of gamers have still not been able to purchase a PS5
PS5 Restock India up for pre-order on July 12 at 12 PM
Yet again, we will see a restock of the Disc Edition of the PS5 along with the Digital Edition. The report also states that Amazon India, Flipkart, Vijay Sales, and ShopAtSC will have the console up for pre-order on July 12 at 12 PM Indian Standard Time. The PS5 has a handful of exclusives such as Returnal (review), Demon Souls, Astro’s Playroom, Destruction AllStars, to name a few. First party heavy hitters like Spider-Man Miles Morales (review), Sackboy: A Big Adventure and more are available on the PS4 as well. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (review) is exclusive to the PS5 only. The market for Blu-Ray discs isn’t as big in India as it elsewhere in the world so we do think that more units of the Digital Edition will ship this time. Or, at least we’re hoping they do.
Getting a next-gen console has been difficult in India. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X (review) are hard to get and a big reason for this is the ongoing global chip shortage. You can learn more about it here.
Despite the global shortage, Sony says the PS5 is the best-selling console, with more than 7.8 million units sold. Sony still has highly anticipated games such as God of War: Ragnarok and Horizon: Forbidden West scheduled to launch in 2022 and 2021, respectively for the PS5.
