For gamers who have still not gotten their hands on the PS5 (review), there’s some good news on the horizon. The last time the PS5 went up for pre-order in India was on July 12 while the next PS5 restock will take place on 26 July. In a report on IGN India, multiple retailers have spoken to the publication and confirmed that the PS5 will indeed be restocked on July 26. 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 26
Yet again, we will see a restock of the Disc Edition of the PS5 but there are reports that the Digital Edition will not be available this time. The report also states that Amazon India, Flipkart, Vijay Sales, Games the Shop and ShopAtSC will have the console up for pre-order on July 26. 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.
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.
