Sony sold 13 million PlayStation 5 units in less than a year

Sony’s gaming console lineup was refreshed after years with the release of the PlayStation 5. The PlayStation 5 was released in the second half of 2020, but only recently in India. Customers have had a difficult time obtaining Sony’s latest gaming console. Not only in India, but also in international markets, there is a problem. This is due to a global chip shortage as well as various lockdowns around the world. Despite this, Sony has sold more than 13 million PS5 consoles worldwide.

Sony PlayStation 5 selling like hotcakes?

During its earnings call on October 28, the company announced that over 13.4 million units of the Sony PlayStation 5 had been sold in various parts of the world. Sony claims that the overall results are quite good, despite the ongoing global semiconductor shortage. Sony has shipped over 3.3 million PS5 units in the last three months alone due to high demand.

Sony recently announced that it had sold over 10 million PS5 consoles worldwide in just nine months since its launch. Not only is it Sony’s most successful album, but it is also its fastest-selling.

The PS5 isn’t the only one to blame. Sony also revealed that in the last three months, over 2 lakh people purchased the PS4 last generation, compared to over 1.5 million units sold in 2020. In total, over 116.4 million PlayStation 4 units were sold. The recent surge in demand could be explained by the PS5’s lack of availability combined with the PS4’s lower pricing. People have become more interested in playing games while working from home as a result of the pandemic.

In addition, the company stated that the sale of PC games brought in a significant amount of money. Sony’s gaming division earned $645.4 billion in revenue, or $5.68 billion, according to a report by GizChina, with an operating profit of $82.7 billion, or $728.33 million.
