Sony recently released its most recent financial data. The company reveals that this quarter, at least in relation to the PlayStation 5, was a huge success. When compared to the same time last year, there is a considerable increase in the number of units sold. From October to December 2022, the games division was able to sell a total of 7.1 million Sony PS5s. This is contained in the company’s latest financial report. In terms of unit sales, for the same period last year, Sony sold only 3.9 million units. This means that the company recorded a massive 82% increase.
Sony boosts its PS5 sales in three months
In just three months, overall PS5 sales rose by over a third. Naturally, the much higher sales numbers for console hardware also led to a rise in sales for the games division. As a result, the Game & Networks Services segment earned close to ten billion dollars in just three months. This accounts for about a 53% increase in sales which is phenomenal.

The gaming and network services division as a whole is experiencing great growth across the board: software sales are up 30%, network services are up 20%, and additional revenue sources like PSVR and software sales on other platforms are up 73% more.
The Sony PS’s overall sales results demonstrate how smoothly things went in part because of the delivery delays that, according to Sony, were nearly formally resolved. Sony has so far sold 32.1 million PS5 units in total. Most recently, November sales of 25 million copies were recorded. Sony’s current-generation console sales increased by 28 per cent, or nearly a third, in just one quarter.
The company might still be able to sell the anticipated number of devices for the 2022 fiscal year, which ends in March. This can only happen if Sony can maintain its strong sales performance. It was predicted that the Sony PS5 will sell 18 million units in a year.
