PlayStation 5 exceeds 40 million units sold » MuyCanal


In a little less than three years and with all possible supply problems, Sony has managed to get its PlayStation 5 console to exceed the 40 million units sold Worldwide.

Since its launch on November 12, 2020, PlayStation 5 has become the console with the best selling performance, despite all the inconveniences that seem to have been solved.

Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, comments on precisely that situation:

“Despite the unprecedented challenges caused by COVID, the teams and partners at Sony Interactive Entertainment worked tirelessly to deliver PlayStation 5 on time. We were facing headwinds with the pandemic, and it took months for supply chains to normalize so that enough inventory could be held to meet demand. In this regard, we continue to thank the community for their patience, but now the supply is well supplied and the pent-up demand is finally being met. Thanks to the support of PlayStation gamers, the milestone has been reached. Without them reaching this figure would not have been possible.»

Europe is a good market for Sony. In fact, last January sales in this territory grew by 200%. Several factors were decisive in this growth: the Christmas season itself, the improvement in supply and, of course, the titles released around the console.

Sony has put the batteries both in the technical part of its console, and in the range of games that it launched around it. The video game portfolio already includes more than 2,500 titles ranging from independent games to blockbusters AAA. The last ones have been final fantasy 16, Diablo IV either Street Fighter 6.

“Over the past two and a half years, we’ve introduced new ways gamers can personalize their experience and bring exciting colors into their homes. We’ve developed a range of color combinations for the DualSense wireless controller and PlayStation 5 console skins.”explains Jim Ryan.
