Sony recently announced updated sales figures for the PS5, confirming that the console has shipped 38.4 million units worldwide as of March 31. It was a significant update, primarily since the company revealed that it had shipped 6.3 million units of the console in the January-March quarter, which is the most shipments a console has ever seen in a year’s Q1 period. On top of that, the PS5’s updated numbers also represent a major milestone for PlayStation as a whole.

What is the milestone? PlayStation consoles put together have now sold over 500 million units worldwide to date – 504.19 million, to be precise – with the PS1 sitting at 102.49 million, the PS2 at 158.7 million, the PS3 at 87.4 million, the PS4 at 117.2 million, and the PS5, of course, at 38.4 million as of now.

Sony also becomes the first company to cross the 500 million units landmark, with Nintendo consoles currently totaling at over 403 million units. Of course, handheld platforms for neither company are factored into these totals.

Xbox is another story, given the fact that Microsoft hasn’t provided official sales numbers for its consoles for quite some time. Exact worldwide sales figures aren’t available for either Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S, though if we were to go by estimates, that would still put Xbox’s collective sales behind Nintendo and Sony by quite some margin, at roughly 177 million units worldwide to date.

As for the PS5, Sony clearly has no intention of slowing down the console’s momentum. To the contrary, the company is aiming to ship 25 million units in FY 2023/24, which is more than any console has ever shipped in a single fiscal year to date.
