Gone are the days of the console wars, which we now know were stoked by Xbox, but it’s still fun from time to time to see how our favourite consoles are selling. It’s still pretty hard to actually get your hands on a chunky PlayStation 5 but stocks are steadily increasing, and it means that PS5 sales have now overtaken a hugely popular classic Nintendo console.
These are some of the most unique PlayStation 5 consoles you’ll find.
According to VGChartz, the PlayStation 5 has officially taken over Nintendo’s GameCube in the all-time sales charts. It’s believed that Sony has shifted around 21.83 million PS5 units worldwide as of 30 July, whereas the GameCube has a lifetime sales total of 21.74 million.
This means that the PS5 has become the twenty-first best-selling console. If it wants to move up another rank on the table, it’s going to have to beat the original Xbox’s 24.65 million sales which, given time, looks perfectly achievable. Following that, it’ll have to beat the Atari 2600 which has 30 million sales and the Nintendo 64 with its 32.93 million sales.
It is no surprise that the United States sold the most PS5 units. North America accounts for 8.69 million units. There are also 7.88 million units sold in Europe, Japan, Japan, and 3.45million in other regions. While the GameCube sold 12.55 million units in North America, it only sold 4.44 millions consoles across Europe. The PS5 shortages prove that demand is still there so I’m sure Sony’s sales figures will only continue to skyrocket.
