PS5, PS5 Digital Edition December 6 India Restock Sold out in a minute


The PS5 restock in India on December 6 – as expected – came and went in minutes. New pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 and PS5 Digital Edition went live at noon on Monday, and all the stock was gone in less than a minute on most websites. I managed to add a PS5 Digital Edition bundle to cart on Amazon, but it was out of stock by the time I clicked checkout. I couldn’t even do the same on the Sony Center ShopAtSC website, where the “Add to Cart” button was back to “Notify Me” in less than a minute. Croma had a similar problem, as it ran out of stock within two minutes. I never even saw the buy button on Flipkart, Vijay Sales or Prepaid Gamer Card. Flipkart seemed stuck on “coming soon” all the time. Vijay Sales simply said “currently unavailable”.

On Reliance Digital, the buy button appeared after several minutes, but after entering my address PIN, Reliance Digital said, “Product with code ‘491936181’ not found!” I had the same error with multiple PIN codes. Game Loot encountered a database connection error / “503 Service Unavailable” error, and its site did not load at all. And as always, the Games The Shop website struggled to load, even though third-party trackers showed the site claiming to have PS5 stock. If you managed to get to the full order page on Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, ShopAtSC, or Vijay Sales, let me know in the comments below.

PlayStation 5 review: New Era, Half Jump

The PS5 restock on December 6 ended up being the same story, as it has been since restocks began in India in May. Sony continues to import very few PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition units into India despite skyrocketing demand on several occasions. On top of that, none of the Indian online retail giants can build a website that can handle the PS5 pre-order load. And with demand outstripping global supply through 2022, the situation is not going to improve anytime soon. This was only the seventh pre-order phase for PS5 Digital Edition and the tenth for the PS5. No date on the next round of PS5 India pre-orders yet, but given the gap in November and that early December slot, another later in the month is possible.

PS5 India December pre-orders will start shipping on December 15, according to Amazon, Sony Center and Vijay Sales. Expect the others – Croma, Flipkart, Game Loot, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card and Reliance Digital – to ship PS5 pre-orders around the same date. In recent occasions, online retailers have been sending out PlayStation orders before the stated date, so if you’re lucky, you might get it before the promised date. Of course, the delivery date will also depend on whether retailers accept more reservations than they can fill. Some platforms have also been known to cancel or delay PS5 pre-orders.

All of the PS5 restock for December 6 seems to be gone for now, but you can keep an eye on the nine aforementioned websites and sign up for notifications, if you want. You might have better luck checking with a game store near you. Sony India has also set up a helpline at 1800-103-7799 to help PlayStation fans find local retailers across India.
