Sony anticipates that more consoles than originally anticipated would be delivered in the first three months of the current calendar year. The total number of consoles is now 19 million.
The PS5 has finally taken off after a two-year hiatus of supply shortages: In the course of the morning, we reported on the Delivery numbers for the last quarter, which is far above what Sony was able to achieve a year earlier. And in the coming months, the PS5 appears to be making headway.
In the first three months of the 2023 calendar year, the PS5 is expected to set a new PS4 sales record. This was pointed out during Sony Interactive Entertainment's most recent financial report, which included VGC's findings.
Sony anticipated that the PS5 would be shipped 18 million times in the current fiscal year, which runs until the end of March 2023. That number has now been increased to 19 million, implying that by the end of next month, an additional 6.2 million PS5s will be sold, compared to the previous reported shipment figure for the current fiscal year.
PS5 puts the PS4 in the spotlight.
The PS5 will set a new three-month record for the first time in a calendar year, with the Last Gen console selling three million units shortly after its release between January and March 2014.
Sony announced a new campaign at the beginning of the week, while stating that the days of major delivery difficulties should be resolved, and that customers may now acquire their PS5 faster, ahead of the release of PlayStation VR2. Sony's new virtual reality glasses will be released on February 22, 2023, with a decent launch range of games.
"PS5 supply increased towards the end of last year," said PlayStation's Jim Ryan recently. Anyone who wants a PS5 should find it "easier from now on."
More information on the topic:
The PS5 is on the rise in the United States, with over 32 million deliveries since its launch at the end of 2020, and 7.1 million PS5 deliveries in the three months from October to December 2022 alone.
This is among other things due to the elimination of delivery issues, which resulted in an increase in sales figures. The first-party productions also went exceptionally well, with God of War Ragnarök leading the way.
