The PS5 generation opened with the now infamous inventory crisis which, with a 98% increase in sales, seems be averted.
The console has always been difficult to buy, even on Amazon, and this has made it very difficult to sell Sony consoles.
For some months now PS5 has actually been achieving very positive results, many years after the launch of the hardware and the beginning of the current generation.
And, in a future that seems decidedly rosy, more data will arrive regarding the annual trend of console sales.
As The Gamer reports, in fact, PlayStation has significantly increased its sales from year to year.
PS5 sales up 98% year-on-year in the UK Merged last month. A considerable increase determined by the fact that the new generation console can finally be purchased in a suitable way.
Last month 125,000 consoles were sold in the UK and most of them were PS5s. In particular, the bundled version with God of War Ragnarok of the console accounted for 55% of all PS5s sold.
The sequel to God of War therefore seems to have had a clear and positive effect on sales. Also because it placed among the top five best-selling games of the month, even beating Dead Space Remake.
Nintendo Switch takes second place, but continues to record a slowdown in sales as the seventh anniversary is approaching. A situation that Nintendo is aware of and, despite this, has decided to increase salaries in response.
In 2023 of PS5 there is also the new generation of virtual reality, with PlayStation VR2 which has just arrived in the newsroom: here it is.
And other news will surely come after the new State of Play, the events dedicated to the PlayStation ecosystem that are about to return shortly, apparently.
