Sony Planning PS Now in India as PS5 Software Struggles – About Your Online Magazine


Ratchet & Clank PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Sony apparently has plans to bring PlayStation Now to more countries soon – including India. The service is only available in some territories at the moment, but IGN India reports that the coronavirus hampered his plans to expand the subscription to more countries in the past year. As the pandemic gradually begins to settle, the organization seeks to revisit the idea.

Inventory, as has been happening globally, is effectively non-existent in India – but a report citing unidentified retailers suggests that the biggest PlayStation problem in the country may be price. It is said that the next releases, such as Returnal and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart have pre-order numbers in the “double digits”, as Sony pushes for prices of 5,000 rupees compared to the 4,000 rupees on the PS4.

In response, the Japanese giant is seeking to highlight initiatives such as the PS Plus Collection and Play at home, but it will be fascinating to see how things happen here. Virtually everyone is dissatisfied with the PS5’s software pricing, but it will have a significant impact on the company’s financial results – especially at a time when there is a strong push for low-priced subscriptions?
