PlayStation 5 Is Now the Fastest-Selling Console in Sony’s History
Sony on Wednesday announced that it had sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 units across the globe, making the PS5 the fastest-selling console in the brand’s history, despite a shortage in supply.
“We’ve built more PlayStations faster than we ever have before which makes me happy. But on the other hand, we’re some time from being able to meet 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, which include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Returnal and Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales has sold more than 6.5 million copies since its November 2020 release, while Returnal has sold more than 560,000 copies since its debut in April of this year and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart has sold more than 1.1 million copies since its release last month.
“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,” said Ryan in the release. “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.”
