PS5 — PlayStation 5 Is Now the Fastest-Selling Console in Sony’s History
Sony on Wednesday announced that it had sold quite 10 million PlayStation 5 units across the world, making the PS5 the fastest-selling console within the brand’s history, despite a shortage in supply.
In March, Sony revealed that it had sold almost eight million PlayStation 5 consoles. The device managed to outsell the PS4, though the shortage will reportedly persist a few times.
“We’ve built more PlayStations faster than we ever have before, which makes me happy. But on the opposite hand, we’re a while from having the ability to satisfy all the demand that’s out there, which makes me feel bad,” Sony CEO Jim Ryan told Reuters.
While shortages remain, Sony also shared the financial reports for its first-party exclusives, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Returnal, and Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales has sold quite 6.5 million copies since its November 2020 release, while Returnal has sold quite 560,000 copies since its debut in April of this year, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart had sold quite 1.1 million copies since its release last month.
“I can’t express enough the deep gratitude we pity our passionate community of PlayStation fans who have embraced PS5, and therefore the world-class development and publishing partners who bring such incredible gaming experiences to our platforms,” said Ryan within the release. “While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have tons of labor before us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply.”
In another corner of the gaming world, Marvel Future Revolution has announced a politician release date.
