PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X: Sony names sales figures, Microsoft names growth rates

Sony is renaming specific sales figures for the PlayStation 5, not only from the last quarter, but also from the console release in November last year, in the recently released quarterly figures. Microsoft is buttoned up again and wants to talk about growth rates rather than concrete sales figures.

Became the PlayStation 5 Quarterly Report (PDF) In the last quarter ending September 30, 3.3 million copies were sold, resulting in revenue of about 2 1.2 billion. The total number of PlayStation 5s sold since its release has risen to 13.4 million devices – a poor balance prevents even more sales volume, but this also applies to Microsoft’s Xbox Series X.

Xbox hardware grows 166 percent

Only Microsoft has announced that sales of the Xbox series will increase by 166 percent compared to the same period last year, but has not yet given any specific sales figures for the new consoles. Unlike the Xbox Series X, the Xbox Series S is now readily available.

Only 200,000 PS4 sold

However, the PlayStation 4 will no longer play a role. They only sold about 200,000 copies – up from 1.5 million a year earlier, in the quarter before the PlayStation 5.

Sale of games and additional content driver

Sony was able to convert nearly 2.6 billion euros into software last quarter, which is significantly more than hardware. Only 3 213 million comes from traditionally purchased physical sports in stores. Nearly ில்லியன் 1 billion is estimated by digitally purchased games, and 4 1.4 billion comes from additional content such as DLCs or game purchases.

A total of 76.4 million video games for the PlayStation 4 and 5 were purchased last quarter, of which only 7.6 million came directly from Sony. 68.8 million copies are thus allocated for third-party games.

Sony named 47.2 million subscribers to the PlayStation Plus in the last quarter, down from an all-time high of 400,000 in the fall of 2020. In total, there are currently 104 million active users on the PlayStation or PlayStation network.
