We don’t actually know how well the PlayStation 5 is selling, because Sony has stopped short of sharing numbers outside of its “biggest ever launch” rhetoric. However, we do now have firm figures for Spain, where the next-gen console is poised to dominate the market. The Japanese giant shipped 43,000 units, and they sold out.
That makes it the biggest launch for a PlayStation home console in the country, although the PlayStation Portable is actually the company’s fastest-selling system in Spain. It’s worth noting that both next-gen systems are completely sold out in the European nation right now, meaning the numbers we’re seeing here effectively reflect stock allocation rather than demand.
