How to Pre-Order PS5, PS5 Digital Edition, GT7 Bundle in May 13 India Restock


PS5’s May restock is here. Today at 12pm noon, both variants of Sony’s elusive next-gen console — the Rs. 49,990 Blu-ray-equipped PS5, and its Rs. 39,990 disc-less counterpart PS5 Digital Edition — will be up for pre-order in India. Alongside, just as in April, some retailers will also offer a Rs. 54,490 bundle of the Blu-ray PS5 and Gran Turismo 7 that represents a Rs. 499 saving if you were to buy them separately. Gran Turismo 7 released back in March — to heavy backlash from fans owing to microtransactions and grind-based economy — and with Sony India still bundling it, it seems like Sony has more Gran Turismo 7 copies that have remained unsold. Even after last month’s PS5 restock.

If you are trying to buy PlayStation 5 online, you can do that on Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Reliance Digital, Sony Center, and Vijay Sales. You can also check out game stores near you. Those tend to be a better shot at times. Though as has been the case for over a year now — the PS5 celebrated its first birthday in India earlier in 2022 — the big concern is whether you can actually manage to buy one, given Sony India’s continued inventory struggles.

The May 13 PlayStation 5 restock is just the 16th time Sony’s flagship console is being made available for pre-order in India, since its launch last February. Its Blu-ray-devoid sibling PS5 Digital Edition has fared even poorer, with this being only the 10th time interested buyers have had the opportunity to pre-order one. 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.

Curiously, Sony Center website ShopAtSC hasn’t given us an expected shipping date for the May 13 PS5 restock. At the time of writing, its FAQ page — which continued to carry a COVID-19 boilerplate long after delivery restrictions had been removed — hasn’t been updated this time around. Going by earlier estimations, the shipping date for the new PS5 pre-orders should be a week to 10 days from May 13. Whatever it is, all official PS5 online retailers — including Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, GameLoot, Games The Shop, Reliance Digital, and Vijay Sales — should be in line with Sony Center. Though at times, we have seen some online retailers ship out their PS5 pre-orders prior to the announced delivery date too.
