Due to distribution issues and recent price increase many gamers are under the impression that the PlayStation 5 isn’t doing too well in terms of sales, but apparently the reality is quite different. Recently Sony indeed stated that from launch to date in total 38.4 million PS5s have been solda result not too far from what PS4 achieved in the same period of time.
The PS5s sold at the beginning of 2023 bode well for the future of the console
Apparently the success of PS5 does not seem to be in decline at all, given that according to the latest financial reports from Sony, the console is getting some truly outstanding results. The achievement of 38.4 million units sold it is a truly incredible achievement, but to make matters worse, the company has even managed to conquer a record across the gaming industry. This year indeed PS5 has exceeded 6 million units sold during the first three months of the year, a milestone never achieved by any other console. Furthermore, it seems that from here on out sales will not decrease, given that according to analysts, more than 100 million units will be sold by the end of the PS5 life cycle.
