ShopAtSC has also confirmed that the units will start reaching the customers after June 7 but, a delay is expected due to the current Covid-19 restrictions.

"We are delighted to initiate the pre-booking of PS5 console and deliver it to consumers by ensuring compliance with all the safety protocols amid the lockdown. The product is short in stock while its demand is skyrocketing in the market. There are high chances for it to go out of stock within a few minutes. Hence, we would suggest all the fans gear up and be ready to grab it as soon as the pre-booking goes live," Karan Gupta, Director, Vijay Sales said.
The console has previously gone on pre-orders on multiple platforms like Amazon, Croma, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card and Reliance Digital. They are yet to list the May 27 pre-orders but the console should available on at least some of them.
It is worth mentioning that the PS5 has remained in limited stock since being launched last year. It went on pre-orders in India for the first time in February this year before being available again on May 17. The console went out of stock within seconds on both occasions. There is a high chance that there is similar demand for the gaming device even this time.
