When Sony announced the PlayStation 5 on September 16, 2020, a lot of gamers in India must have been questioning: when will ps5 launch in India?

On November 12, Sony released the product in the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and Mexico. Meanwhile, the rest of the world was able to buy the console starting November 19.

The PS5 was launched on February 2, 2021, a few months later than other markets.

PS5 India specifications

As you know, there are two PS5 versions, but they are mostly the same.

The gaming console is powered by the AMD Zen 2 CPU with a custom AMD Radeon RDNA 2-based GPU, which provides 10.28 TFLOPs of raw graphical power. It uses available frequencies on both the GPU and CPU, which could mean the graphics would run a bit faster than normal when the central processing unit is not running at peak.

The PlayStation 5 also features 825GB of SSD storage with 5.5BG/s of throughput, which is probably fast enough for gaming developers to build levels without things like winding corridors or elevator rides that mask levels loading in the background.

It’s worth noting that some of the internal storage is used by system data, leaving about 667.2 GB left of storage space. This space will likely be used up fast as you play more games on the console. For instance, COD: Black Ops Cold War already takes up 133GB, nearly 20% of the available storage.

At launch, it was impossible to expand the PS5 storage. However, according to Bloomberg, Sony will allow for suing expanded SSD storage from this summer. The ability is said to come in a firmware update that will activate the M.2 expansion slot of the gaming console, which remains disabled up to now.

The PlayStation 5 supports 3D audio that promises players can “see with sound.” It features three USB-A ports, including two on the back and one on the front, along with one USB-C port on the front. Apart from that, there is an Ethernet port on the PS5’s back.
