The PS4 Guru will finally be back in stock in games stores across India this week officially.
This marks the first time since the PS4 Guru’s India launching in February last year that Sony will make the PS4 Pro available after what presumably was issues related to BIS clearance. Gadgets 360 has learned that PS4 Pro consoles have landed in the nation and are being billed to retailers and vendors at the moment.
Along with this, promotional material claiming that the PS4 Pro is back in stock was sent to game shops too. Expect to see it on store shelves later this week in addition to on sites like Amazon, Flipkart, and Games The Shop.
It is important to recollect that Sony has improved the price of the PS4 Pro for India following the Indian government’s decision to increase customs duty from 10% to 20 percent throughout the Union Budget 2018 announcement. Now, the PS4 Pro will probably get an MRP of Rs. 41,990 as opposed to the Rs. 38,990 cost it sported as it was available formally.
And though the PS4 Pro price is greater than what it used to be, you may not need to pay this much. Multiple sources in the supply chain assert that Sony isn’t working as much price control within the PS4 Pro price as it used to.
This will result in the likes of Amazon and Flipkart in addition to offline, independent shops that provide a small discount of around four percent, bringing the price down to a little under Rs. 40,000. It’s an essential move considering that the PS4 Pro has been easily available unofficially through gray and parallel imports to get a cost of approximately Rs. 32,000. This makes the trade off for a formal unit with warranty a bit more palpable.
Gadgets 360 has achieved to Sony India for comment and will update this story the minute we hear by the company.
