PS5 is on a serious upward trajectory – and it’s not because the console was previously flopping or anything like that. Sony’s ability to finally get ample stock onto store shelves is driving outrageous sales figures right now, with Games Industry.biz’s well-connected Christopher Dring revealing that January 2023 sales are up an eye-watering 98 per cent year-over-year in the UK. That’s a staggering increase.
The platform holder recently dropped a re-launch campaign, which it’s using to raise awareness of the renewed availability. And during its financial call earlier this week, it revealed that it actually intends to increase its shipment forecasts during the current quarter, meaning the format’s install base could be closing on 40 million units by the end of March.
