Speaking on the SIE Blog this morning, Veronica Rogers, SVP, Global Head of Business Operations announced that Sony has sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles globally. This makes the PS5 the fastest-selling console in the history of Sony Interactive Entertainment.

“I can’t express enough the deep gratitude we feel for our passionate community of PlayStation fans who have embraced PS5, and the world-class development and publishing partners who bring such incredible gaming experiences to our platforms,” said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have a lot of work ahead of us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply. I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.”
The next several months have several first-party titles set to launch including a sequel to God of War from Santa Monica Studios, Gran Turismo 7 from Polyphony Digital, and Horizon Forbidden West from Guerrilla Games.
