Sony PlayStation has the latest business figures released for the completed fiscal year 2021. As of March 31, 2022, 19.3 million PlayStation 5s could be shipped worldwide. This means there were two million devices in the past quarter.
In the same quarter last year it was 3.3 million – so you’re still dealing with supply issues, but that shouldn’t surprise anyone. With 11.5 million PS5 consoles shipped, Sony clearly missed the target of 14.8 million units in the past fiscal year.
For the new and now ongoing fiscal year, 18 million PS5 consoles are planned to be manufactured and shipped, which would be a significant increase. It remains to be seen whether Sony can keep up with these plans.
The PlayStation 4 increased its total sales to 117.2 million units and shipped 100,000 units in its most recent fiscal quarter. In the same quarter last year, this was still 900,000 units.
The PlayStation Plus subscribers are definitely more interesting than the PS4 songs. here relies on Sony PlayStation to 47.4 million paying customers. That is 200,000 fewer subscriptions this time than in the same period last year. And of course a very stable base.
Sony PlayStation wants to upgrade as many of these subscriptions as possible to the premium level of the “new” PlayStation Plus from the end of May and thus earn more with the same number of subscriptions. Retro games, which are available in the premium level, should also help. So far, however, one can only guess what exactly these are.
Sony PlayStation also announced that it sold 70.5 million games worldwide on PS4 and PS5 in the past quarter. That is more than 9 million more than in the same period last year. 14.5 million of these were first-party games, 6.6 million more than the same period.
