Next-gen consoles are selling like wide fire as Sony has had a record breaking year and at the same time struggle to meet the high demand. Sony’s record-breaking sales were released by one publisher together with the earnings report. This all confirms the fact that Sony despite not being able to meet up with demand has sold a lot of PlayStation 5 consoles.
An analyst Daniel Ahmad already stated that sony has had the best quarter in the history of the company since the PlayStation one. Also, coupled with the fact that the PlayStation 5 is a far better console than the PlayStation 4 it’s no wonder how fast it is selling and stock lasting only seconds. Sony saw an increase in revenue to 883.2 billion yen ($8.4 billion), due to a large number of PS5 sales. Also, operating profit increased to 80.2 billion yen ($763.3 million) because of higher game sales and the PlayStation Plus subscriptions.
Playstation and Xbox have always lagged behind PC with many PC gamers being comfortable with their PC and not wanting to switch. However, things have changed with the launch of the ps5 and the Xbox series x, now one can say these consoles are now almost on par with some high-end gaming pcs.
The worst is not yet over, as AMD has announced that the drought of its ps5 consoles is set to continue till mid-2021. This is not by any means good news as the coronavirus pandemic is coming to a second face lockdown. Hopefully, by mid-2021 we would have the ps5 console in stock all over the world.
