How to Pre-Order PlayStation 5 During March 24 India Restock

[ad_1]

PS5’s March restock is here. Today at 12pm noon, the Rs. 49,990 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray-equipped variant of Sony’s elusive next-gen console PlayStation 5 will be up for pre-order in India. This is only the 14th time the PS5 has been made available in India, since its launch in February last year. If you are trying to buy PS5 online, you can do that via Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, GameLoot, Games The Shop, Reliance Digital, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales. You can also check out retail stores near you. Though as has been the case for a year now — the PS5 celebrated its first birthday in India in February — the big concern is whether you can actually manage to buy one, given Sony India’s continued inventory struggles.

Of course, that is far from the only hassle with buying a PlayStation 5 in India. Every single time, the likes of Croma and Games The Shop have shown themselves to be unable to handle the load. Even Amazon has had trouble a few times. Additionally, Croma, Flipkart and Reliance Digital are also known for cancelling PS5 pre-orders due to their own technical challenges.

And while there have been no restrictions on deliveries for a while now, Sony Center website ShopAtSC continues with its COVID-19 boilerplate: “We intend to deliver your allocated stocks around 8th April 2022 and onwards — however please expect a delay in our delivery services which might get impacted due to regulations imposed by lockdown/ curfew in your locations.” Expect the rest of the official PS5 online retailers — Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, GameLoot, Games The Shop, Reliance Digital, and Vijay Sales — to be in line with Sony Center’s estimates. Though at times we have seen some online retailers ship out their PS5 pre-orders prior to the announced delivery date.
