“While PS5 has reached more households faster than any of our previous consoles, we still have a lot of work ahead of us as demand for PS5 continues to outstrip supply. I want gamers to know that while we continue to face unique challenges throughout the world that affect our industry and many others, improving inventory levels remains a top priority for SIE.” said Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony Interactive.
The PlayStation 5 reached its 10 million-milestone 249 days after its launch versus the Playstation 4, which reached the same said milestone 271 days after its launch. Both the PS2 and PS3 reached the same milestone more than a year after the respective system’s launch date.
