Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), Sony’s gaming division, announced today through a blog post that as of July 18, PS5 (see our PS5 reviews) Since its launch on November 12, 2020, 10 million units have been sold. This marks Sony’s achievement, as the company said it cemented the PS5’s position as the fastest-selling game console in the company’s history.
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and the overwhelming demand for gaming hardware (from graphics cards to CPUs and game consoles), the entire hardware industry and its related supply chain have a large shortage of components, but the news was released. Sony has successfully sold 10 million PS5 game consoles, which proves the demand for the latest generation of game hardware, and also proves that the company can still play a role in the unforeseen circumstances of the world’s playground.
Although PS5 still does not have an exclusive game roster of its main drivers of sales, the company is preparing for numerous high-profile releases this year and 2022. One of them is Horizon: West is banned, and its release date may still be postponed to 2022.
New Ares games that are still based on Norse mythology are also in development, as is Grand Turismo 7-both of which are often huge driving forces for Playstation sales. However, earlier than these is Arkane’s Deathloop, a timed console that was exclusively contracted before Microsoft acquired Bethesda, and was recently postponed to the September 13 release date.
The 10 million PS5 consoles in the hands of gamers have allowed Sony to make huge profits in software and service sales-in addition to 10 million AMD-based game solutions. Putting Sony’s statement alongside Microsoft’s recent statement about a 172% increase in game console hardware sales, just last month painted a clear picture of game health and demand.So although Microsoft is in our PS5 vs. XBox Series X, Obviously, both companies are the winners in sales.
