PlayStation 5: Almost At 55 Million!

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 sales figures have also been released by Sony, which has done something we don’t usually see from them.


Let’s start with the numbers from the financial report. As of December 31, Sony had shipped 54.8 million PlayStation 5 units to stores. In the last three months of 2023, the PS5 shipped 8.2 million units (and as usual, there’s no breakdown for the Digital Edition and Blu-ray drive versions), which is a big improvement over the last quarter of 2022, when Sony’s current-gen console shipped 1.1 million units.

89.7 million PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 games were sold in the fourth quarter of last year, also a positive result (3.2 million more than in 2022). 16.2 million were first-party, in-house developed titles, but Sony ended the quarter with a negative result, as that’s 4.6 million less than in the last three months of 2022. Digital sales (=PlayStation Store) were 66%, up 4% year-on-year.

Sony has sold 10 million copies of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 as of February 4, 2024, so Insomniac Games’ game is doing well on PlayStation 5 before it comes to PC. PlayStation Network had 123 million monthly active users on the last day of 2023, an increase of 11 million in one year. So it’s a positive balance in almost every aspect, but yes, they didn’t disclose the number of PlayStation Plus subscribers this time either. Is that number still in decline? That’s why Sony has been silent for so long!

Sony Interactive Entertainment has already trademarked a name in the USA on February 12. The trademark is for the name Intergalactic: The Heretic Prophet. Sony has not yet announced anything under this name, and it is rare for a company to trademark a project name before it is officially announced, and it is impossible to search for it on the Internet, nor can you guess from the name which studio is working on the game.
