Sony sold 4.5 million PlayStation 5 consoles, and 1 million phones in 2020. The company has published its financial results for the October-December 2020 period, which is Q3 in the Japanese company’s fiscal year. The holiday period saw the launch of the new console Playstation 5, which racked 4.5 million sales despite severe stock shortages. And Sony has just sold 1 million smartphones.

Sony sold fewer PlayStation consoles in its Q3, last year – 1.4 million PS4 consoles on top of the 4.5 million new ones. However, with prices starting from $399/€399 for the Digital Edition and $100/€100 more to have a physical disk slot, it is no wonder the Digital Software, and Hardware teams reported over 30% improved sales.
