Sony PlayStation 5 India price revealed

Sony India announces PlayStation 5, gaming titles' price details

Last month, Sony officially launched the much-awaited PlayStation 5 (PS5), the successor of the popular gaming console PS4, which was released seven years ago.

The Japanese consumer electronics major revealed that both the PS5 Digital Edition and the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc Drive will hit stores initially in seven markets such as US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea on November 12 with prices starting at $399.

However, there was no official word on when the new PS5 would arrive in India and how much it could cost. This apparently led to speculations that PS5 release may get delayed in the country. Now, the company has revealed the price and hinting it may possibly come sooner than later.

Sony's PS5 digital edition will cost Rs 39,990, and you have to shell out a whopping Rs 49,990 for the Blu-Ray Disc Drive model.

Whereas the Sony DualSense Wireless Controller costs Rs 5,990 and the HD Camera is priced Rs 5,190.

The company is also bringing other accessories including PULSE 3D Wireless Headset (Rs 8,590), Media Remote (Rs 2,590) and DualSense Charging Station (Rs 2,590).

Also, Sony is launching exclusive gaming titles-- Demon's Souls (Rs 4,999), Destruction Allstars (Rs 4,999), Marvel Spider-Man Miles Morales: Ultimate Edition (Rs 4,999), Sackboy A Big Adventure (Rs 3,999) and Marvel Spider-Man: Miles Morales (Rs 3,999).
