Sony is all set to launch the fifth generation of its console in November but because of trademark issues, the launch of PS5 may delay in India.

Highlights

  • Sony is unable to initiate prebooking and announce the availability date of PS5 in India.
  • PlayStation 5 is expected to launch somewhere in November in India.
  • Hitesh Aswani has filed naming rights for PS5 in India on October 29, 2019.

Sony is ready to launch its next-gen gaming console worldwide on November 12, 2020. And in India, the PS5 console may available for sale later in the month. But there are rumors that Sony is not able to start pre-booking or even announce the availability date in India as a Delhi based guy has filed the trademark for the product.

Information from  Mako Reactor claims that the trademark for the PS5 name in India was filed on October 29, 2019, by Hitesh Aswani, who apparently resides in Delhi, almost three months before Sony applied for the trademark, India Today reported.

As it stands, the filing is currently contested. According to the report, despite the fact that the company is expected to win the case, this could delay the launching of the console in India.

This has not happened for the very first time a big tech giant has to deal with trading and trademark issues in India. Asus also faced the same issue for its ZenFone series of phones in 2019.
The fifth variant of Sony’s flagship console will be available in two versions: Standard and Digital Edition.
The standard version will be priced at $500/500/450 and the Digital Edition will be yours at $400/400/360 without a disc drive.

As far as the console’s launch globally, the PS5 is set to launch on November 12, 2020, in select countries including the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.

On November 19, after a week later rest markets will witness the PlayStation 5.
