“Achieving this PS5 sales milestone is a testament to the unwavering support of the global PlayStation community and their passion for the incredible experiences created by the talented developers from PlayStation Studios and our partners,” said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “We’re grateful for all of our players who have joined the PS5 journey so far, and we’re thrilled that this is the first holiday season since launch that we have a full supply of PS5 consoles – so anyone who wants to get one can get one.”

The huge bump in sales can be attributed to what Sony calls “the biggest November for PlayStation consoles sold through to consumers” thanks to titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Baldur’s Gate 3, Alan Wake 2, and even titles like EA Sports FC 24 and the PS debut of Roblox.
