Dimapur, July 28 (EMN): Japanese tech giant Sony has sold 10 million PlayStation 5 (PS5) gaming consoles as of July 18, the company revealed yesterday, making it Sony’s fastest-selling console to date.

In its official blog, Sony wrote, “We are thrilled to announce that as of July 18th, 2021, we have sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles globally. This makes PS5 the fastest-selling console in the history of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and we couldn’t be more excited about the amazing response of our fans.”

The PS5 was launched worldwide on November 18 of last year and despite sales being interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing global chip shortage, it is quite an impressive feat by the company.

The company stated that it was grateful for the support from its fans and assured the PS5 community that it would take measures to ensure a steady supply of PS5 consoles amid a global crisis of chip shortage.

“We are incredibly grateful to our fans for the terrific reception of PS5 and our growing portfolio of gaming entertainment. Without your support and confidence, this early success would not have been possible. We are making steady progress with available global supply and can’t wait for the day when everyone who wants a PS5 can easily get one.”
