Sony Hits a Marvelous Milestone: 40 Million PS5 Consoles Sold!

PlayStation 5’s success has been fuelled by blockbusters such as Horizon: Forbidden West.

Hey gamers, have you heard the exciting news? Sony has reached a jaw-dropping milestone by selling over 40 million PlayStation 5 consoles! Can you believe it? Even Spider-Man would be swinging from buildings in celebration!

Initially, back in April, Sony touted selling a respectable 38 million units. But wait, there’s more! In the past seven months alone, an impressive additional 6 million consoles have flown off the virtual shelves. Now that’s what I call a gaming revolution!

Jim Ryan, Sony’s chief executive, couldn’t contain his excitement and gratitude. He broke the news, saying, “With the support of PlayStation fans, we have reached a milestone of 40 million PS5 consoles sold through to gamers. Thank you so much to our community of gamers – without you, this would have been an impossible task.” Kudos to all the passionate gamers out there who made this feat possible!

But let’s take a trip down memory lane. The PS5 journey began in November 2020, and let’s face it, the world was a bit… weird. Covid-19 created havoc, but Sony’s teams and partners rose to the challenge, diligently working to ensure PS5 reached eager hands right on time. Talk about superhero-level dedication!

Despite facing unprecedented obstacles with the ongoing pandemic, Sony persevered. Those pesky supply chain issues took months to resolve, but finally, the demand for PS5 is being met. It feels like a sigh of relief more satisfying than defeating the final boss after countless retries.

Now, let’s shift our attention to the star players—the games! Sony compiled a list of the top 40 games based on PlayStation 5 user polls. The list includes thrilling exclusives like Astro’s Playroom, Demon’s Souls (pictured above), and The Last of Us Part 1. Of course, we can’t forget about the multi-platform gems like Elden Ring. It’s a treasure trove of gaming goodness!

As he puts it, “PlayStation Studios and our third-party partners have jumped in to take advantage of these capabilities and expand their creative toolkit to deliver a generational leap in the experiences they bring to gamers.” You are the lifeblood of the gaming community, and Sony recognizes that.

So, gamers, let’s give ourselves a well-deserved round of applause! Thanks to your unwavering support, PlayStation 5 has soared to greater heights, delivering unforgettable gaming adventures. Keep gaming, keep exploring, and let the fun continue!
