Sony Has Officially Sold More Than 40 Million PS5 Consoles

Sony has officially announced that it has sold more than 40 million PS5 consoles around the globe.

This comes after the console spent its early years battling the COVID pandemic and resulting parts shortages that meant buying a console was almost impossible.

Sony also confirmed that there are now more than 2,500 PS5 games available and that it has “never been a better time to experience PS5.”

It’s clear that Sony only needed to fix its supply issues to sell tons of consoles, and that’s something the company acknowledged in the press release announcing the milestone.

We launched PlayStation 5 in November 2020 and the world was in a strange and different place than when we announced the console in 2019. Despite the unprecedented challenges of COVID, our teams and our partners worked diligently to deliver PS5 on time. 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. 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.

Sony also shared details on the top PS5 games as voted for by the PlayStation community. There were some interesting choices as well, but some big titles were included as you might expect.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare II is there, as is Dead Space and FIFA 23. Horizon Forbidden West and Hogwarts Legacy are also present, while smaller titles are also represented by the likes of It Takes Two and Sifu.
