While the availability of the PlayStation 5 is still questionable for the time being, its sales are nothing short of a masterstroke.
In a new blog post today, Sony announced it has sold over ten million PlayStation 5 consoles since its release late last year – the fastest selling system in the company’s history. Yes, even more so than PlayStation 2.
Veronica Rogers, senior vice president for global sales and business operations, explained,
“Pushing through supply challenges and a global pandemic, we’re proud to have delivered a transformational gaming experience that is captivating players around the world. Everyone at SIE put their all into making the PlayStation experience better than ever. I’d like to call out a couple of teams who made especially important contributions.”
“The company has thrived thanks to huge first-party games like Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Spider-Man: Miles Morales. And that momentum isn’t set to slow anytime soon, thanks to upcoming titles like Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7.”
“We are incredibly grateful to our fans for the terrific reception of PS5 and our growing portfolio of gaming entertainment. Without your support and confidence, this early success would not have been possible. We are making steady progress with available global supply and can’t wait for the day when everyone who wants a PS5 can easily get one.”
“Our commitment to supporting PlayStation’s entire community, across all platforms and services, has never been stronger. So, wherever gamers are on their journey with us, we are committed to making sure that PlayStation is the best place to play.”
Congrats to Sony on setting the new standard for next-gen consoles!
