Posted by

PlayStation 5 Slim is set to go on sale in India on April 5 via offline and online retail stores in the country, including Sony’s ShopatSC website, Amazon, Flipkart, Games The Shop, and other major retailers. The new console from Sony will also be available to buy through the Indian quick-commerce service Blinkit.

Blinkit founder and CEO Albinder Dhindsa shared the development via his official social media accounts, such as X (formerly Twitter) and LinkedIn. As per the Blinkit x PS5 poster shared by Dhindsa, users will be able to order both versions of PS5 slim– standard and digital edition.

To recall, Blinkit was allowing users to buy iPhone 15 on the first day of its India availability. The 10-minute grocery delivery service was delivering the new iPhone from Apple’s authorised reseller Unicorn. The delivery timing varied from 8 minutes to 19 minutes based on a user’s location (Noida, Delhi, and Gurugram in this case). Just like last time, Blinkit could have partnered with a retail store to deliver PS5 Slim within minutes.

PS5 slim features

First launched in the US in November 2023, the PS5 Slim is a lighter and thinner version of the PlayStation 5 console. It has mostly the same hardware specifications as the original but features a smaller form factor, thanks to a 30 per cent reduction in volume. The new machine comes with a detachable disk drive and slightly bigger storage, measuring 1 TB instead of 825 GB.

It will retail at the same price as the existing PlayStation 5 models in the country. The disk version of the PS5 Slim will be available to buy at Rs 54,990, whereas the digital edition will be available for Rs 44,990. The latter allows buyers to buy the disk drive separately to make it a disk version.
