From Game Developer:
The PlayStation 5 has sold 13.4 million units to date, with 3.3 million of those sales coming during the last fiscal quarter.
According to Sony’s financial report for the quarter ended September 30, 2021, demand for the console contributed to a sales upswing in its Game and Network Services (G&NS) segment.
Sales in the division rose by 27 percent year-on-year to 645.4 billion yen ($5.68 billion) thanks to an increase in hardware sales and rising sales of third-party titles.
Operating income within the G&NS segment, however, fell to 82.7 billion yen ($728.4 million) from 105.4 billion yen ($928.4 million) due to a decline in sales of first-party software and the loss resulting from the “strategic price point” of PlayStation 5 hardware, which sees Sony sell the console at a loss.
Looking ahead, Sony said its fiscal forecast remains unchanged.
