Sony has revealed today that the PS5, which came out no less than 8 months ago, has already reached its 10 million sales milestone making it the fastest-selling PlayStation console in the company’s history surpassing even the PlayStation 4.
According to current Sony CEO, Jim Ryan “I can’t express enough the deep gratitude we feel for our passionate community of PlayStation fans who have embraced PS5, and the world-class development and publishing partners who bring such incredible gaming experiences to our platforms.”
Ryan goes on to comment on the constant shortage of hardware in all the stores, saying “While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have a lot of work ahead of us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply. I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.“
Sony also revealed further details about the sales of their recent titles including—but not limited to—Spider-Man Miles Morales raking in a whopping 6.5 million in sales, MLB The Show which earned 2 million, and their latest release Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart earning over one million in sales. Safe to say 2021 has been an overwhelmingly busy but equally as bountiful of a year for Sony.
Jim Ryan once again commented on Sony’s confidence in their hardware as well as their extremely successful line-up of titles, stating “We were confident that this would be the case, we believed profoundly in the feature set of our new platform, and we worked really hard internally and with our partners to make sure that the game line-up was really strong, and we have continued to pepper the community with excellent PlayStation Studios’ games like MLB: The Show, Returnal, and Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart. But fair to say that the engagement has surprised us, in a very pleasant way.”
