Sony Has Sold More Than 4.5 Million PS5 Units Since Launch

According to the sales data published by Sony, the company has shipped more than 4.5 million units of PS5 in 2020. Compared to PS5, the sales for its previous generation gaming console PS4 fell 77 percent in the October - December quarter as compared to the previous year. Sony shipped 1.4 million units of PS4 during the quarter.

The company also reported that it had the best fiscal quarter in the history of its gaming business as revenues went up by 40% when compared to its revenue figure in the previous year.

The major difference between the two consoles' launches is that the PS5 launched during the coronavirus pandemic and has been tougher to come by. It's likely that the PS5 will be even more popular than its predecessor in the long term, even though the PS4 is the second best-selling console of any brand of all time. 

Sony is currently in its fourth fiscal quarter, which lasts through March. The company aims to sell more than 14.8 million PS5s in its next fiscal year, chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki said at a news conference, according to Nikkei.
