PlayStation 5 was announced in June 2020 and was launched back in November 2020 in select markets. India fans have also been frustrated for not revealing the India launch details. Sony hinted at the delay in India’s launch due to the local import regulations but there was no clear statement from the company.

Gaming is popular in India but it is still not a big market for gaming consoles. Most people in India still prefer playing games on PC and mobile phones. Now when teens are seeing a successful career in esports, gaming marketing is growing. Obviously more people in India can now afford gaming consoles. So, Sony can expect a good response to the next-gen gaming console. Microsoft is struggling to meet the demand for the next Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles in India. That shows how people in India have turned to console gaming.

Now when we have the confirm launch date and pre-order dates, rejoice. 😉
