PlayStation 5 sales soar in December; Sony sold 30 million units globally
According to a recent tweet from Sony, the PS 5 console has formally sold more than 30 million units globally. Although PlayStation did not provide specific sales data for the PS5 during the month, it also declared that December was “the biggest month ever for PS5 console sales.”
New milestone for PS 5
Sony subsequently acknowledged that the PlayStation 5 has achieved a new milestone after a supposedly extraordinarily successful month. According to PlayStation, “December was the greatest month ever for PS5 console sales, increasing the total to over 30 million devices sold globally.” The announcement follows a flurry of others that the business made during CES 2023, which runs from January 5 through January 8th.
The console shipped 25 million units worldwide, with 5.7 million of that selling in the first fiscal year of 2022, according to a November 2022 report from VGC. Unfortunately, this number is much below Sony’s goal of 18 million devices sold by the end of the current fiscal year, or March 2023, as stated by the corporation.
Sony has sold 10.7 million devices in its current fiscal year, leaving it with just three months left to sell an additional 7.3 million units if the corporation is to meet its goal of selling 18 million units by the conclusion of the current fiscal year.
However, Sony’s goal for CES 2023 didn’t just include sales data; the corporation also unveiled a new accessibility controller known as Project Leonardo. The highly configurable controller will only be available for the PlayStation 5. The controller, according to Sony, “is meant to reduce obstacles to gaming and let players with disabilities play more freely, more comfortably, and for longer periods on PS5.”
What is Project Leonardo?
With Project Leonardo for PS5, players can design their gameplay. It comes with a sizable package of interchangeable parts, such as various analog stick caps and buttons in various sizes and forms.
These elements allow players to create a huge variety of control setups. Additionally, the player can choose how close to the gaming pad the analog stick should be placed. Players can use these elements to create a setup that suits their strength, range of motion, and specific physical requirements.
Why is PS 5 so popular?
It’s not surprising that the PlayStation 5 has reached this milestone. The PS5 is a powerful gaming console that offers a lot of features and capabilities that gamers are looking for. It has a sleek design, fast loading times, and impressive graphics and performance. In addition, the console has a strong line-up of exclusive games and a large selection of games from a variety of genres. The PS5 also offers several innovative features, such as haptic feedback, 3D audio, and the ability to play games remotely on other devices. Overall, it’s a high-quality console that has something for everyone.
