PS5 Shipped 3.4 Million Units in 4 Weeks, According to Report - SalesWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 March 2021 / 4,364 Views
Sony was able to ship 3.4 million units of the PlayStation 5 in its first four weeks available, which is a new record for a PlayStation console. This is according to a report from Digitimes who cites "industry sources."
The report from Digitimes also expects production of the PS5 in 2021 to reach between 16.8 million to 18 million units. This has been helped by increased capacity from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company and backend service firms.
Shipment priority was given to North America and Europe in November and December, but that will change as the Asian markets are expected to get more PS5 consoles in early 2021.
Take this with a grain of salt: Digitimes is not Bloomberg, if you catch my drift.— Dr. Serkan Toto / Kantan Games Inc. (@serkantoto) December 29, 2020
