Sony has announced the PlayStation 5 has sold more than 40 million units. Despite launching the console at a challenging time during the COVID in 2020, Sony managed the situation well and can now keep up with consumer demands. In January, the PS5 surpassed 30 million sales, and it was only a matter of time before the company surpassed the 40 million milestone.
“We continued to face headwinds with the pandemic, and it took months for supply chains to normalize so we could have the inventory to keep up with demand, Sony Interactive Entertainment President,” Jim Ryan shared in a news post. “For more months than I care to remember, we kept thanking our community for their patience while working through these issues. But now PS5 supply is well-stocked and we are seeing that pent up demand finally being met.”
As part of the news, Ryan says more than 2500 PS5 games are now available to play. Sony’s next AAA title release is Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, which launches on October 20th. The PlayStation 4 remains Sony’s fastest-selling console, achieving the same 40 million units in sales two months quicker than the PlayStation 5.
