Amazon Great Indian Festival Sale 2023: Best deals on gaming consoles
The PS5 is the most sought-after console in India. Each pre-order launch of the console has sold out like hot cakes, and Sony’s newest console remains popular. Thankfully, the shortages are now over and the PS5 is easily available to buy on e-commerce websites and retail stores.
Launched at a price of Rs. 49,990 in India in 2021, the PS5 disc variant got a price hike in the country last year, when Sony raised its price by 10 percent to Rs. 54,990. The cheaper digital variant of the console also got a price bump, up from launch price of Rs. 39,990 to Rs. 44,990.
Now, during the ongoing Great Indian Festival sale, the PS5 disc variant is available for Rs. 44,990 — an 18 percent discount on its MRP. Users can also get additional discounts on the console using an SBI debit or credit card. If you’re a football fan, you can also grab the PS5 EA Sports FC 24 bundle for a sale price of Rs. 48,189, down from an MRP of Rs. 59,390.
