PS5 Gets An Official Price In India For Games and Console But No Release Date
Sony has confirmed the price of PS5 in India along with the games that will be sold with it, but due to the trademark issue, there is no release date.
PS5 has been priced in most of the major markets around the world. In the case of India, the pricing scheme is rather expensive compared to other countries around the world.
Sony is planning to launch both the digital edition and the disc edition of the PlayStation 5 in India. The pricing for the digital edition is 39,990 INR while the disc edition is 49,990 INR. They haven’t announced a release date on when the console is expected to launch, however, as we reported earlier, there was a dispute with the PS5 trademark that will be resolved soon as per the latest update.
For those who want to know how it compares to the USA, this pricing scheme translates to $680 for the disc edition of PS5 compared to $499 in the USA. Similarly, the disc edition is being sold for roughly ~$540 in India compared to the $399 price in the USA.
What about the price for games that will be officially distributed by Sony in India? PS5 subreddit moderator has shared a list of the price for the console, accessories along with games that will be available on it at launch in India.
The pricing for games appears to be in line with the USA, however, accessories are slightly more expensive. The biggest takeaway here is that the console price is far higher than expected so it could lead to a slow start in India. For comparison, the Xbox Series X has been priced at 34,990 in India.
