Nevertheless, the India release date of the PlayStation 5 series is still a mystery.
Earlier this week Sony finally unveiled the PlayStation UI and user experience, presenting an 11 minute video that dives into the various new features, the new visual design and other facets of the next-gen console's system software.
The PlayStation 5 price in India is set at INR 49,990. The Sony PlayStation 5 Digital Edition has been announced at Rs 39,990.
As is usually the case, the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition cost more in India due to factors like import duty.
She goes on to say that there will not be the option to opt-out of voice chat recording, because Sony wants "all users to feel safe when playing with others online, not just those who choose to enable it". The PS5 Digital Edition meanwhile costs $399.99 (roughly Rs 29,500) in the US.
Suspiciously the UI video dropped nearly simultaneously to when the first Xbox Series X previews started to appear on the internet, confirming that Sony and Microsoft are battling it out behind the scenes with revealing details to players. The new Dualsense wireless controller is priced at Rs 5,990. The media remote for it will be available for Rs 2,590. The first titles are Demon's Souls, Destruction Allstars, Sackboy a Big Adventure, and Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
