PlayStation 5 Consoles No Longer Selling At A Loss

Sony just released its financial results for the first quarter of the current fiscal year. Not only did the PS5 shipments increase, but the console is no longer selling at a loss.

Sony shipped 2.5 million PS5s during the 1st April and 30th June period (via official announcement). The company also sold 10.1 million PS5 units worldwide.

Sony chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki stated that the console, especially the Digital Edition, will not be selling at a loss due to the additional hardware sales including the PS4 and peripherals. The company has also secured enough chips to meet its sales target for PS5, after months of semiconductor shortages.

Here are more numbers from the linked PDF above concerning its fiscal year:

  • PS4 console shipments reached 500,000, which is down 1.4 million compared to 1.9 million shipped last year.
  • Sony’s combined sales of PS4s and PS5s hit US$934.3 million.
  • PlayStation Plus subscribers reached 46.3 million as of 30th June 2021.
  • Sales of PS4 and PS5 games reached a combined total of 63.6 million units sold.

Imagine how many more PS5s the company would have sold if most customers can find one. Or if scalpers and their bots didn’t get in the way.
