Indian gaming enthusiasts and fans can soon lay their hands upon Sony's newest next-generation video game console, the PlayStation 4. Its midnight launch at Landmark stores across India on Sunday night, 5 January has been confirmed.
PlayStation 4 is all set to have new Indian customers on 6 January when it will be released for people who have pre-ordered it and others who want to buy it off the shelf at Landmark stores across India. This new gaming console costs ₹ 39,990. The PlayStation Eye motion-sensing camera and extra controller will cost ₹ 4,990 each.
People who have pre-ordered the console had to pay an advance of ₹ 1,499. However, all the online deliveries will be free of charge.
Indian fans had to wait for nearly a month and half after it was released in North America on 15 November 2013. The Indian release date for the console was announced only last month and it was also available for pre-ordering at online retailer website, Snapdeal, soon after.
The first three customers queuing up at the Landmark store will be getting a special Steel plaque from the outlet. And some lucky people might chance upon earning ₹ 500 extra for trading in a PlayStation 3 game for PlayStation 4 software, The Indian Express reported.
The box will contain the console with 500 GB hard drive, 1 mono headset in earbud format, power cable, micro-USB cable, 1 DualShock 4 controller and an HDMI cable.
It also must be noted that the pricing of the Indian console is the highest when compared with other countries barring Brazil. It costs $400 (₹ 25,000) in the US, €400 (₹ 35,000) in Europe, SGD 639 (₹ 32,000) in Singapore and HKD 3,380 (₹ 27,000) in Hong Kong, Financial Express reported.
