Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially announced that the PlayStation 5 has sold over 50 million units since its initial launch in November 2020.
This feat and growing momentum are thanks to the continued support by fans alongside well-received and highly popular releases like Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War. With the PlayStation 5 now three years into its lifecycle, development teams are taking as much advantage of the console’s technology more than ever before.
The SSD-enabled swift loading times, ray tracing, and DualSense controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers have helped distinguish the PlayStation 5 from previous Sony consoles.
Jim Ryan shared the following statement regarding this achievement while also emphasizing stock availability:
“Achieving this PS5 sales milestone is a testament to the unwavering support of the global PlayStation community and their passion for the incredible experiences created by the talented developers from PlayStation Studios and our partners. We’re grateful for all of our players who have joined the PS5 journey so far, and we’re thrilled that this is the first holiday season since launch that we have a full supply of PS5 consoles – so anyone who wants to get one can get one.”
Back in November 2023, the PlayStation 5 was confirmed to have sold roughly 46.6 million units worldwide.
