Sony Facing Drastic Shortage For Xbox?
Fans of Sony were quite aggravated as the company did not issue any clarifications about the launch of the new gaming console in the upcoming months. Fans have also secured a unit from the gray market at a premium in the recent time after the country was not included in the first wave of nations for the launch of the PS5.
However, Microsoft has been going through some struggles to meet the demand for the Xbox consoles in India. The shortage is so drastic that the console cannot even be located on Amazon India.
It was in November when Sony had suggested that the launch of the PS5 would be delayed due to local import regulations. Also, reports were that Sony will not be offering warranty and after-sales support for PlayStation 5 accessories in India. This was similar to the previous generations offered by the company as well.
