Sony: PlayStation 5 reaches milestone with 10 million units sold
Sony has announced that 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles have been sold since the console’s launch on November 12, 2020. This makes it the fastest-selling console in history and the PS5 outperforms its predecessor, the PlayStation 4. Sony also reached a milestone with its game portfolio. For example, Spider-Man has sold 6.5 million copies since its launch on November 12, and MLB The Show 21 is the fastest-selling title in franchise history with over 2 million units sold across platforms. In Sony’s press release, Jim Ryan says he is pleased with the current sales figures. With the arrival of even more games from Guerrilla Games (Horizon Forbidden West), Polyphony Digital (Gran Turismo 7) and Bethesda (Deathloop), Sony says that there are still plenty of titles on the way for the console.
“I can’t express enough the deep gratitude we feel for our passionate community of PlayStation fans who have embraced PS5, and the world-class development and publishing partners who bring such incredible gaming experiences to our platforms,” said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have a lot of work ahead of us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply. I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.”
