PlayStation 5: Fasting selling Sony console

July 18 was the milestone date

Sony PS5 best selling console in series

Despite the current console shortages in midst of the Covid pandemic, Sony’s PlayStation 5 is the fastest-selling console in the series, reaching over 10 million sales globally, besting the PlayStation 4’s figures in under a month.

The console’s sales success has also been bolstered by first-party title releases such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales selling over 6.5 million copies, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart selling over 1.1 million copies and Returnal which has sold over 560,000 copies.

Commenting on the success, Head of PlayStation Jim Ryan says “We were confident that this would be the case, we believed profoundly in the feature set of our new platform, and we worked really hard internally and with our partners to make sure that the game line-up was really strong”.
