Sony had said that it aimed to ship 18 million PS5 consoles during the current fiscal year, which is scheduled to end on 31st March, 2023. That’s a bullish figure, which would have required it to ship an extraordinary 5.2 million units during the current quarter. But the company’s feeling so confident in its manufacturing pipeline, that it’s actually increased its guidance to 19 million units.
That means that the company now expects to ship 6.2 million units during the current quarter, which is just 900k less than the 7.1 million units it shipped during the previous three month period ending 31st December, 2022 – which, of course, included key holiday shopping windows such as Thanksgiving and Christmas.
