The 3.4 million figure does fall in line with reports from earlier this year revealing that Sony is planning to ship 10 million PlayStation 5 units before March 2021. The Japanese company originally planned to ship between 5 and 6 million units by March, but the increased demand made Sony change its plans. Lately, new report revealed that PlayStation 5 had the biggest console launch in the history of United States.
The PlayStation 5 console is now available worldwide in two different editions: the regular edition, complete with Bluray drive, and the Digital Edition.
