It seems that the final chance to get a PS5 in India is upon us, with pre-orders for what is most likely to last PS5 restock in 2021 set to go live on December 28, just four days from the time of writing this article.

Stocks for the in-demand console will likely be available at retailers such as Croma, ShopatSC, GamesTheShop, Flipkart and Amazon, with stocks likely being limited and the consoles flying off the shelves, much like December 15, the last restock.

Sony PS5 Pre-Orders Set for December 28 in India

Stocks will likely be available for a short period so we recommend that you keep the important payment information ready ahead of the pre-order date. The chip shortage will also likely stay in 2022, so don’t expect it to get easier to get a PS5 next year, at least for the first few months.

This comes at a time when gaming consoles are in demand, especially considering the number of games on offer, some of which include God of War: Ragnarok. The accessories for the popular console will be available at retailers such as Amazon and Flipkart.

In other Sony news, the company finally announced its own custom covers for the in-demand console. The covers from the brand will be available in purple, black, red, pink and blue and will work on both the regular PS5 and the Digital Edition of the console.

Sony is releasing the black and red console covers in January in major markets, with the other colours coming in the first half of 2022. These new covers will match the colours present on the DualSense controller that now comes in blue, pink and a new purple hue.

These new colours will be available in January, with the purple version available in the US, UK and Germany via Sony’s PlayStation direct early access program. For those wondering, retailers will get the purple DualSense controller starting February 11th.

The blog post mentions that “these new console covers are beautiful and easy to use — simply remove your original white PS5 console covers and click your new ones into place”.

When it comes to availability, the blog mentions that: the Midnight Black and Cosmic Red PS5 console covers will become available starting in January 2022 at participating retailers in the following locations: USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, and the Philippines.
