It seems like the PS5 India launch day saga is still going to continue for a little while longer as it is still uncertain when the console will be available to buy in the country. However, things are turning around since Sony India updated their website again with fresh artwork stating November 19 as the launch day for the console in India. It is prudent to point out that no official announcement has been made yet and it could just be a placeholder image.
First spotted by The Mako Reactor, the image shows the PlayStation 5 will have new artwork and mentions the global launch date for the console. However, there are good chances that the console might be slightly delayed due to various reasons but it’s still reassuring to see Sony is working on a release date for India. At the time of writing this story, the webpage with the new artwork is still online which you can check out for yourself here.
Having said that, the launch of the console may not be as smooth as anticipated since there will be limited quantities to go around. Sources familiar to The Mako Reactor have confirmed that quantities of the next-gen console will be “extremely limited” when it is available for pre-order.October 28, 2020
