PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition will be back in stock this Wednesday, June 23 at 12pm noon in India, Amazon India, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, and Sony Center have all announced on their respective official websites. Vijay Sales confirmed to Gadgets 360 it would also offer both PS5 variants on June 23. This will be the fourth time that the PlayStation 5 will be officially back in stock in India, and just the second time for its digital-only counterpart, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, that launched in South Asia over six months on from its global debut. Hopefully, stocks will last a bit longer this time.
Rumblings for PS5 India restocks had been building up over the past couple of weeks, and we finally have confirmation. The June 23 restock date for PlayStation 5 comes almost a month since the last time Sony’s next-gen console went on sale in India, and over a month since the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition was first made available here. Sony Center wesbite ShopAtSC has revealed that the June 23 PS5 pre-orders will begin shipping Saturday, July 3, in line with my previous estimations (between June 30 and July 5. There was a week-long gap for the May 17 pre-orders, and an 11-day gap for the May 27 pre-orders.)
Expect Amazon India, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, and Vijay Sales to start shipping the new wave of PS5 pre-orders from July 3 onwards as well. Of course, the bigger worry is whether the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition stock will last beyond a few minutes — or even seconds — and if certain sites will even be able to handle the load (hello, Croma, Games The Shop, and Prepaid Gamer Card) to begin with.
The PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition are back in stock on Wednesday, June 23 on Amazon India, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales. You might have better luck with a local game store near you, so don’t forget to call them up.
