PlayStation 5 is just a wish for some, given the limited availability of Sony’s new generation console. But that doesn’t stop it from being a sales success.
Sony sold 7.8 million PS5 through March 31
In its latest sales report, Sony reveals that as of March 31, 7.8 million PS5s have already been sold. By the end of 2020, Sony revealed that it had already shipped 4.5 million new consoles.
This means that in this first quarter of 2021 3.3 million consoles were shipped. According to The Verge, this drop is explained by the fact that Sony probably increased production before launch.
PlayStation Plus already has 47.6 million users
These numbers are accompanied by a substantial increase in the number of PlayStation Plus subscribers. This service now has 47.6 million users, an increase of 14.7% compared to the same period in 2020.
Sony also reveals a total of 2.6 billion euros of operating profits for the PlayStation segment during the financial year 2020. Something that is a real record, according to the records of the brand.
It turns out that an additional 1 million PS4 consoles were sold during this quarter. This now totals 115.9 million units sold.
Comparing sales, and despite the lack of stock, PS5 will be selling faster than PS4. The 7.6 million sales on March 31, 2014 of PS4 are surpassed by these 7.8 million sales on PS5 on March 31, 2021. We will see how the next quarter is going.
