PS5 will be back in stock in India next Monday, July 26th at 12 noon, the Sony Center announced on its official website ShopAtSC. Amazon India, Games The Shop and Vijay Sales announced to Gadgets 360 that they will be taking orders too. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it’s very likely that the other common retailers – Croma, Flipkart, Prepaid Gamer Card, and Reliance Digital – will also see a top-up. We’ll update this article as soon as we know more. This is the sixth time the PlayStation 5 has been officially back in stock in India. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any evidence of its digital-only counterpart PS5 Digital Edition, which has been offered in parallel in recent years.
The July 26th replenishment date for PlayStation 5 is 14 days after Sony’s last-gen console was last sold in India and is in some ways a reflection of the PS5 pre-order situation in May when the PS5 received a quick second replenishment for the following PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition just 10 days earlier. At the time, reports suggested that Sony wanted the PlayStation 5 to ship around the Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart release date. The only PS5 title on the horizon right now is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (out August 20th), so maybe that’s why here. However, Sony Center has not yet announced when this new wave of PS5 pre-orders will ship.

As always, don’t expect PS5 stock to last for more than a few minutes – or even seconds. And only if certain sites can cope with the load in the first place. Croma, Games The Shop and Prepaid Gamer Card have had technical problems lately. Amazon and Flipkart also have some issues, although they are usually among the best alongside the Sony Center.
PS5 is back in stock on Monday July 26th at Amazon India, Games The Shop, Sony Center and Vijay Sales. Croma, Flipkart, Prepaid Gamer Card and Reliance Digital should have it too. However, you may have better luck with a local game store near you, so give them a call too.
