PlayStation India also announced on Twitter back in November that Sony didn’t have a release date for the country yet, because availability for each region is subject to “local import regulations” among other things. Fans may want to check out the pre-order’s timing details from any of the participating retailers before January 12th, seeing as the console sold out in the US and other countries within minutes of pre-orders going live. According to an old tweet by PS India, the PS5 will cost buyers IDR 49,990 (US$684), while the digital edition will set them back IDR 39,990 (US$548).
