Sony has announced the pricing for the PlayStation 5 in the country. The prices of both PlayStation5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition have been announced. The PlayStation 5 costs Rs 49,990 in India, while the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition is priced at Rs 39,990.
The pricing for the PlayStation 5 is comparable to the price of the Xbox X, which Microsoft previously unveiled. Like the PlayStation 5, the Microsoft Xbox X also costs Rs 49,990. But the price of the Digital Edition of the PlayStation 5 differs from the price of comparable Microsoft Xbox Series S. While the Xbox Series S in India costs Rs 34,990, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition costs Rs 39,990.
There are no official details as to when the PlayStation 5 will go on sale in India. Apparently there is a tangle related to copyright to the name PS5 that Sony must resolve first, but rumors about the PlayStation 5’s launch date in India have begun. A report on October 16 said the PlayStation 5 will be released in India on November 19.
Microsoft had previously confirmed that the Xbox Series X and Series S will launch in India on November 10, and pre-orders for both consoles have already started in India.
In addition to the details of the PlayStation 5, Sony has also revealed that the DualSense wireless controller for these consoles will cost Rs 5,990 in India.
The next generation from both Sony and Microsoft uses AMD general purpose graphics cards and hardware this time. Both consoles have 8 core processors, but the raw graphics performance is a bit more in the Xbox. But again, the feature set, exclusive titles, and other details differ between the two game consoles, so it won’t be a direct comparison between the value of the PS5 and the Xbox X.
Sony India has announced the Indian prices of the upcoming PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. The price starts at Rs 39,990 which is for the digital edition.
