For gamers who have still not gotten their hands on the PS5 (review), there’s some good news on the horizon. The PS5 will be available for pre-booking on February 22 on ShopAtSC and GamestheShop. It’s been a harrowing time for gamers in India as a lot of gamers have still not been able to purchase a PS5 but here’s your chance.
PS5 up for Pre-Booking on February 22, 2022
Games the Shop and ShopAtSC will have the console up for pre-order on February 22, 2022 at 12 PM Indian Standard Time. The PS5 has a handful of exclusives such as Returnal (review), Demon Souls, Astro’s Playroom, Destruction AllStars, to name a few. First party heavy hitters like Spider-Man Miles Morales (review), Sackboy: A Big Adventure and more are available on the PS4 as well. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart (review) is exclusive to the PS5 only. The market for Blu-Ray discs isn’t as big in India as it is elsewhere in the world so we do think that more units of the Digital Edition will ship this time. Or, at least we’re hoping they do.
Getting a next-gen console has been difficult in India. Both the PS5 and Xbox Series X (review) are hard to get and a big reason for this is the ongoing global chip shortage. Despite the global shortage, Sony says the PS5 is the best-selling console, with more than 7.8 million units sold. Sony still has highly anticipated games such as God of War: Ragnarok scheduled to launch in 2022, respectively for the PS5.
