Sony has sold over 32.1 million PS5 units following a successful holiday season

Sony’s gam­ing busi­ness had a glo­ri­ous Christ­mas quar­ter, sell­ing 7.1 mil­lion PS5 units from Octo­ber to Decem­ber, up from 3.9 mil­lion in the same peri­od last year.

That’s an 82% increase, and as the com­pa­ny recent­ly claimed, the sup­ply prob­lem seems all but resolved. That means you should be able to buy a PS5 with lit­tle delay now.

As a result, net sales in the net­work and game ser­vices field increased by 53% from the pre­vi­ous fis­cal year to $9.7 billion.

This fig­ure includes hard­ware sales more than dou­bling, as well as soft­ware (30%), net­work ser­vices (20%), and oth­ers (such as sales of first-par­ty soft­ware for PSVR and oth­er plat­forms). It also includ­ed a sig­nif­i­cant increase (73%).

To make sense of these things, Sony has already sold 32.1 mil­lion PS5 units, com­pared to 25 mil­lion units in Novem­ber 2022, so total sales are up 28% in one quarter.

will be Also, if PS5 con­sole ship­ments hit 5.2 mil­lion units, which seemed very opti­mistic last quar­ter, Sony will not be able to pre­dict sales for fis­cal year 2022 (18 mil­lion units between March 2022 and March 2023). If he hits this tar­get, PS5 sales will sur­pass his 37 mil­lion unit sales.

Sony has been strug­gling with Microsoft­’s acqui­si­tion of Activi­sion, but Microsoft itself recent­ly point­ed out that Sony has five times as many exclu­sive games as Xbox. Among first-par­ty titles, “God of War Rag­narök” and “Ghost of Tsushi­ma Direc­tor’s Cut” stood out on PS5Âź.

Sony’s gam­ing busi­ness has been over­shad­owed by oth­er areas, but its image sen­sor busi­ness also con­tin­ued to grow, with sales ris­ing 63% year-on-year to $3.24 bil­lion. Sony sup­plies the major­i­ty of cam­era sen­sors to smart­phone and mir­ror­less cam­era makers.
