The PlayStation 5 is still in 6th place in the sales chart with 27.1 million shipments, but Sony plans to push PS5 sales to over 37 million throughout this fiscal year. If Sony achieves this goal, total PlayStation hardware sales will reach 597 million by March 2023.

Sony recently stopped reporting PlayStation 4 console sales as the system reached peak saturation during its 9-year lifecycle. All eyes are now on the PS5 as it enters its second year.

In the wake of massive chip shortages, the company is doubling down on software and services to help monetize the existing install base of PS4 users and growing PS5 adopters. Sony will be less reliant on raw hardware sales and shipments in the coming years as it releases more free-to-play live games on consoles, PCs, and mobile devices.
