Sony has been quite successful with the PS5. According to the Sony’s recent earnings reports, courtesy of analyst Daniel Ahmad, the company sold around 4.5 million units of the PS5 over the last quarter. For a larger picture, around 59.2 million units of the PS5 were sold in totality as of the end of the previous financial year on March 31, 2024.

For some added context, this means that when it comes to speed of sales, the PS5 is slightly behind the PS4, which had sold around 60 million units in the same time frame. Sony also doesn’t seem to expect the PS5 to outsell the PS4 next year.

Interestingly, the numbers for the last quarter are also much higher than those of Xbox Series X/S, which reportedly only sold around a fifth of the number of units as the PS5, which would put it at an estimated 900,000 units mark.

Other details revealed in the report include sales data, revealing that Helldivers 2 was the fast selling game released by Sony so far. Helldivers 2, which sold 12 million copies in around 12 weeks, also beat God of War Ragnarok in terms of speed of sale. A large part of this can be attributed to the fact that Helldivers 2 saw a simultaneous release on PS5 and PC.
