PS5 India Restock: PlayStation 5 Horizon Forbidden West Bundle Pre-Orders to Go Live on August 22

The PS5’s August restock is here, and it’s a special one. Sony has announced pre-orders for its next-gen console in India, which will go live on August 22 at 12 PM. At this time, Sony is distributing both digital and Blu-ray-equipped PlayStation 5 systems. The new-gen console will only be available as a Horizon Forbidden West-themed bundle. The disc-less variant is priced at Rs. 43,990, while the beefier disc version costs you Rs. 53,990. Currently, there is no word on individual units in stock.

Horizon Forbidden West opened to generally favorable reviews, with critics praising the game’s larger setting compared to the prequels. However, Alden Ring’s close launch dampened the buzz around it, turning many’s attention to FromSoftware’s latest. Earlier, Sony was offering the PS5 in a Gran Turismo 7 bundle, priced at Rs. 54,990. Although this new Horizon Forbidden West bundle is a bit cheaper, it offers a great gameplay experience that makes the price worth it. By default, all PS5s come with Astro’s Playroom, a fun platforming game to help you get started.

Currently, the pre-order page is only on Sony Center ASC. Games The Shop has also posted an advertisement on their Instagram handle, but the website has not been updated. Going by what we’ve seen in the past, the next-gen console is also expected to be up for pre-order on Amazon, Flipkart, Vijay Sales, Croma and Reliance Digital. These pre-order campaigns work on a first-come-first-served basis similar to flash sales, so you better be quick.

Getting PS5 consoles has been a long struggle around the world – thanks to the pandemic, which has led to global chip shortages and inventory struggles. The August 22nd PlayStation 5 restock will be the first time the next-gen console will be made available in India as a Horizon Forbidden West bundle – after a delayed February 2021 release.

None of the above websites mention pandemic-based distribution restrictions, so if you manage to pre-order your console, it should reach you in about 14 days. Until last month, the Sony Center website There was a COVID-19 boilerplate – warning about shipping delays. It has since been updated.
