This includes a plan to sell more than 7.6 million units of the PS5, which would be “more than the PS4 managed in its first fiscal year.” The plan was detailed by Sony’s chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki during a quarterly earnings briefing held this week.We recently learned from SIE CEO Jim Ryan that in the US, Sony pre-sold as many PS5s in the first 12 hours as the PS4 did in the first 12 weeks of its preorder availability, so that figure looks pretty achievable.
The PlayStation 5 is set to launch on November 12 and November 19, depending on which country you live in, and you can check out our unboxing of the next-gen console here.
