Sony sold 7.1 million PS 5 consoles in the final quarter of 2022, mobile division not doing so well

February 2, 2023


Sony has finally resolved the supply issues for the PlayStation 5 and the proof is in the pudding – or rather its financial report for the last three months of 2022. The company sold 7.1 million PS5 consoles, a massive increase from the 3.9 million it managed a year prior.

This boosted the Games & Network Services revenue to JPY 1,246 billion, up from JPY 813 billion for the same period in 2021 – a massive 53% increase. Even more telling is that the bulk of the sales came from hardware rather that digital content like the year ago quarter (game sales are up as well).
