Karan Gupta, director, Vijay Sales, said, “We are delighted to initiate the pre-booking of PS5 console and deliver it to consumers by ensuring compliance with all the safety protocols amid the lockdown. The product is short in stock while its demand is skyrocketing in the market. There are high chances for it to go out of stock within a few minutes. Hence, we would suggest all the fans gear up and be ready to grab it as soon as the pre-booking goes live.”
