Contrary to reports suggesting otherwise, the PS5 has quietly been on the upswing in recent days, particularly in Sony's home region of Japan. Famitsu's latest report (thanks Gematsu) records that the PlayStation 5 family sold 53,211 units during the week of 24th July to 30th July 30, 2023 (with little brother PS4 notching up a respectable 784). Famitsu reports that the PS5 has now exceeded four million cumulative domestic sales, comprised of 3,495,327 disc-capable and 551,239 digital-only consoles.

This takes the lifetime sales across the lovely, pleasingly symmetrical 4,000,000 unit mark, which we can confirm makes for a much better headline. Sony's current-gen console is having a banger year, exploding in the UK and sailing past 40 million sold worldwide (and that was at the start of last month).

Where do you think the ceiling is on the PS5? Take the rumoured Pro iteration into account (and recall PS4 managed 117 million) before taking an educated guess in the comments section below.
