Sony’s gaming console was launched almost a year back and is still out of bounds for most. The demand for this console has remained intact despite the global supply chain issues that have stifled the supply.
The PS5 comes in two different variants – the standard variant comes with a Blu-Ray drive apart from an SSD storage while the Digital Edition is slightly cheaper and doesn’t come equipped with an optical drive.
Unlike the restock that happened in April which had both the variants up for sale, this time around the company is only offering the standard variant.
PlayStation 5 price in India
The standard Sony PS5 is available at a retail price of Rs. 49,999 in India while the Digital edition is priced at Rs. 39,999.
Though the retailers are also offering a bundle offer for Rs. 54,490 which comes with a PS5 standard version along with a copy of Gran Turismo 7.
The retail package of the PS5 gaming console includes a DualSense controller apart from the console itself.
PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition – which one should I buy?
Ideally, you should have a choice to buy the version of your choice, however, this is subject to availability.
The standard variant lets users play your physical PS4 and PS5 games, however, you can still access your downloaded PS4 titles on the Digital Edition as well.
The PS5 Digital Edition is cheaper and doesn’t have a disk drive. Though the best part is that it has the same specs as the standard variants hence it can do all the games with similar ease.
You might have to stay content with the limited onboard storage though in the Digital Edition. It comes with 825 GB which can fill up rather quickly. Hence, If you’ve got a substantial physical collection already then it might be worth upgrading to the main console.
