PS5 India Restock News, Pre-Order Sold Out: The PlayStation 5 consoles sold out instantly on pre-orders in the latest restock of Sony’s latest gaming console. The pre-orders went live at 12 PM (noon) IST.
Both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 5 Digital Edition were sold out in less than a minute on some websites.
An error showed users – “It’s rush hour and traffic is piling up on that page. Please try again in a short while.” The Flipkart stocks went from “coming soon” to “sold out” even before 12 PM.
This happened because some consumers used bots that would help them pass through the ‘add to cart’ process and directly reach the payment gateway. At this point, they would just have to put in their payment information and wait for their new console.
Orders that were successful will take 7-10 days to deliver.
