PS5 Misses Its 2021 Sales Target, But Aims for Its Strongest Year Yet

Sony’s PlayStation 5 has now sold 19.3 million units, but fell short of its original FY 2021 sales target by 3.3 million. Despite the dip, Sony still expects to sell more units than ever before in the next year.

Sony originally forecasted selling 14.8 million units of PS5 hardware in its second year on the market, but Sony revealed in its latest financial earnings results that it instead sold 11.5 million units. This matches the late adjustment that Sony made two months before the conclusion of the 2021-22 financial year, which lowered PS5 sales expectations to 11.5 million.

As you’d expect, Sony puts the underperformance down to an ongoing difficulty in obtaining hardware components after global shortages.
