Sony Sells 6.3 million PS5s

PlayStation 5 sales are breaking all previous records. Demand for the next-generation console is helping the company reach its sales target. The company has just announced its second consecutive quarter of strong sales. Best of all, Sony sells 6.3 million PS5s. This seems to be an attractive number for the company.

In the same period last year, the company reached a sales target of 2 million. For the fiscal year 2022, the company managed to sell 19.1 million units, which is significantly higher than the 18 million sales forecast. In total, Sony is on track to sell 38.4 million PS5s since the console’s release in 2020.

In addition, the forecasts for hardware sales are positive, while there is uncertainty about PlayStation VR2 sales. The company’s games division covers the possible losses of other divisions.
