Sony PlayStation 5's pre-booking will begin on October 12
It's that time of the month gaming aficionados have been waiting for. Yes, it is time to get that elusive PlayStation 5. Japanese electronics giant Sony has announced the next restock of the gaming console in India. Pre-booking for the device will begin on October 12 at 12 pm. Both the standard PS5 and the Digital Edition will be up for grabs this time.
Why does this story matter?
- The 20th restock of the PS5 in India is nearing. After monthly restocks from June till August, Sony failed to do so last month.
- Global chip shortages have always been a foe for those who wanted to buy the gaming console.
- It is also possible that the company delayed the restock to be prepared for the Diwali shopping rush.
The controllers have DualSense and adaptive triggers
The Sony PS5 (Blu-ray disc drive equipped) and PS5 Digital Edition are fueled by a custom, 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2 processor coupled with AMD RDNA 2 GPU. They deliver 8K gaming support at up to 120fps. They pack 16GB of GDDR6 RAM and 825GB of internal storage. They have wireless controllers with DualSense, adaptive triggers, and haptic feedback.
