The latest data from Sony’s Q2-2022 earnings brief shows that total cumulative PlayStation hardware shipment reached 579.1 millions across all console generations. The data includes 16 million PlayStation Vita orders and confirmed data directly by Sony.
These numbers reflect the shift in generation from the 2013 PlayStation 4 and 2020 PlayStation 5. The PS4, now at 117.2 Million shipments, is giving way to the PS5, which now has 25,000,000 units shipped.
Sony PlayStation Cumulative Hardware Buy-In
- PlayStation Vita sales – 16,000,000 (estimated Sales as of December 2019).
- PS5 sales – 25,000,000 (as at September 2022).
- PSP sales – 76.4 million (as at March 2012)
- PS3 sales – 87.4 Million (as of March 2017).
- PS1 sales – 102.4 Million (as of March 2012).
- PS2 sales – 155 million (as at March 2012).
The software side, the total number of PlayStation video games sold has reached 1.997 million. This doesn’t include PS Vita sales so actual sales may be higher. Sony will surpass 2 billion games sold, excluding PS Vitas, by March 2023.
In terms of hardware revenue, Q2 2022 saw lower year-over–year earnings for PS4 & PS5 purchases. The company made $1.297 billion in hardware sales in Q2 according to Sony’s calculations, when the USD was converted. This represents a 11% drop and a decrease of $162 millions.
If Sony reaches its FY22 target of 18 million PlayStation 5 shipments, which it most certainly should, then the total PlayStation hardware shipment will be at 610,000,000 units by March 2023.
