Customers can pick up their orders from physical Sony Centers on May 24 while online retailers such as Amazon, Flipkart, Games The Shop, Prepaid Gamer Card, Reliance Digital, Croma, and Vijay Sales may delay deliveries due to varied restrictions across the country related to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.
