This is well priced. People also need to consider that taxes are a thing too
Damn why playstation is playing that's like 15000 in tax added per consel
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2020Ot should be 399$ not +500$Ya broo. But anyways i am buying it :)
L.O.R.D, 18 Oct 2020Yes I was surprised too, to see some say it's double the price, which obviously isn'... morethis is primary reason getting from us ain't worth... it weights ~11 pounds with a controller and to carry that, opened in a luggage bag would be royal pain in the crack. If my cousins ask for this, the relatively low price difference is the reason I'd simply refuse.
Better for Indian to visit Japan and buy it there. Now, when the tickets and everything are cheaper.
I already preordered it in America..
By the time it releases in India I'll be in America lol..
I just wanted to check the price for India cuz I want to gift my cousin a Ps5 on her birthday✌️
Price of PS5 in USA : $499.99
Price of PS5 in India : ₹49,990 = $680.66
Literally it's 180 $ more in India!

People complaining about the price must realize that US pricing most likely does not include tax, so in that case, $499 is not the final amount they're paying, whereas INR 49990 includes tax so the difference isn't that high
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2020Ot should be 399$ not +500$Pricing is accurate if you add 18% import tax and 18% gst to the original prices.
Amer Rock, 17 Oct 2020Thank you team. GSMArena for paying attention to Indian market. Appreciate it!the more reader of the website, the more advertisement profit. India is the second most populous country after china. no wonder, most of the big companies now somehow feature India. look at some recent Hollywood movies, they cast Indian actor/actresses. everything is about business.
Noname, 17 Oct 2020 Indian Taxes adds upWell this price is inclusive of all taxes right ?
Console gaming is too expensive now,,

My ~4000 USD 3D rendering workstation that was built using a mix of parts bought and brought from the US with some sourced locally would have costed upwards of 6500 USD if I was forced to purchase all of the parts locally.
If you think that VAT and sales taxes in the US and EU are a pain, wait till you see what Indians pay for everything and what we really get in return for the astronomical tax rates on nearly everything that's not used as a voting ploy.
(ANS: we get in return nothing but corrupt regimes, social unrest, economy in the gutters...everything that shows the failure of a democracy in real time effect).
Thank you team. GSMArena for paying attention to Indian market.
