PS5 Trademark is not Held by Sony in India

As you all know, PS5 is now available for pre-order before it gets out in the world on 12th November. It will be available all around the world, except India. Why is that? Well, Sony does not hold the PS5 trademark in this country.

There is a lot of legal words being thrown, but from what we understood is that the PS5 trademark is held by Hitesh Aswani, a mass manufacturer who can produce other goods in the name. We guess that Sony filed an opposition against it, but its status is currently as “Opposed.” You might know or not, but to file an opposition against a trademark is a quite long process that might take years and years to be solved.

Sony has already patented PS6 up to PS10 but did not bother to patent PS5 sooner. Maybe this is because, to be honest, India is not a fruitful market when it comes to consoles, mainly due to its acceptable piracy. The Indian audience also does not want to spend money on games and consoles that are expensive, so they are waiting until the original price drops, so they could buy it then. Indian gamers can get their consoles through local retailers, but they will not get the important Sony India warranty.

It remains for the date and price for India to be announced, but for the rest of the world, PS5 is launching on 17th November.
