Sony has announced in its fiscal year 2023 Q1 results that another 3.3 million PS5 consoles were shipped in the three months leading up to 30th June 2023, bringing the total to 41.7 million. The firm revealed two weeks ago the current-gen box had sold 40 million units, meaning this latest statistic represents a 1.7 million increase in reported numbers.
For the entirety of the current fiscal year, Sony has set itself a target of 25 million PS5 system shipments, which would represent the highest ever for any PlayStation console in history. It hopes to do so with the help of Marvel's Spider-Man 2, which has a limited edition PS5 bundle planned for release next month. Other first-party titles for the coming months like Helldivers 2 should contribute a little also.
More stats shared in Sony's Q1 results include its count of the monthly active users on PSN remains steady at 108 million, and that 72 per cent of the 56.5 million PS5, PS4 games sold during that quarter were for the digital version.
