Sony yesterday opened pre-orders for the next-generation PlayStation 5 game console in India, the second largest gaming market after China, for the third time.
As in the previous two cases, the entire inventory of the new console sold out very quickly, and the PlayStation 5 could be purchased in a large number of stores, including Flipkart, ShopAtSC, Amazon, Croma, Vijay Sales and so on.
During this stage of pre-orders, buyers were offered only the more expensive version of the PlayStation 5, which is equipped with an optical drive, but this did not stop fans. In some stores, pre-orders took a few minutes, but in most places everything was over in literally seconds.
It is currently unknown when Sony will again offer the PlayStation 5 to buyers in India, but on June 11, a new exclusive project Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart should go on sale, so the company will certainly try to please buyers with a new batch of consoles. Those who were able to pre-order the console in India will receive their set-top boxes on June 7th.
Sony has confirmed in its report, which was prepared specifically for investors, that the standard version of the PlayStation 5 will become profitable in June this year.
Sony previously said the console shortage could continue into next year
