Sony finally dropped the good news in the new year for Indian console gamers by announcing the launch date of the PS5. The much-anticipated console will hit Indian shores on February 2, with pre-orders set to go live at 12PM on January 12. The PlayStation 5 will be available to pre-order from Amazon, Flipkart, Croma, Reliance Digital, Games The Shop, Shop at Sony Center, Vijay Sales and select other authorized Retail partners.
But how exactly do you pre-order the PS5? Of course, we’re about 10 days away from actually being able to pre-order the console, but it doesn’t hurt to be prepared, right? And, considering how difficult it has been for international gamers to even get their hands on the console, it truly is better to be safe than to be sorry.
How and Where to pre-order a PS5 in India
The simplest way to pre-order the PS5 would be to check the official online retailers of the console. Starting with the official PlayStation store, you can head on over to this page to pre-order the console on Jan 12. Amazon India, you can head over to this page on January 12 to pre-order the console. Or, if you’d prefer, you can head on over to Games The Shop as well. Another option is the official Sony Centers as it will probably be a safe bet owing to the fact that it’s an official Sony store.
You can also try Flipkart who have also been included in the official retailers list. We assume that the console should be available in offline retailers like Croma and Vijay Sales as well. But that has not been confirmed. Maybe you could pre-order the PS5 online and then pick it up at an offline retailer? Again, this is just speculation, as nothing apart from the launch date, retailers and pre-order date have been revealed.
