Sony, like Microsoft, is now claiming that its latest videogame consoles are its fast-selling ever. It has sold over 10 million PlayStation 5s.
“We are thrilled to announce that as of July 18th, 2021, we have sold more than 10 million PlayStation 5 consoles globally,” Sony senior vice president Veronica Rogers announced. “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.”

Excited is kind of a tough word, given that most of the people who want a PlayStation 5 can’t even find a console in stores because of ongoing component shortages. But then, that makes this milestone—as with Microsoft’s—all the more impressive. Imagine how many consoles Sony could have sold if it could have made more of them?
Rogers barely addresses this problem, noting only that SIE is “making steady progress with available global supply and can’t wait for the day when everyone who wants a PS5 can easily get one.” I bet.
