Voted 16-17.9m. Sony's CFO apparently claimed they will be able to ship 23m units in the next fiscal year (April 2023-March 2024), and most of that year is on Calendar 2023, but Sony has consistently overestimated their production capabilities this entire gen (they initially predicted 22m shipments in FY2021 but later had to revise that down to 15m shipments, then they predicted 22.6m shipments for the current fiscal year which ends in March, yet they have only sold through to consumers about 12.5-13m in the first 9 months of the fiscal year so far). And even if they can produce close to the 23m they claim they will be able to ship, they may have trouble selling them all to consumers with the world moving into a recession as inflation soars, considering PS5 is a fairly pricey luxury item, and I doubt Sony plans a price cut on either model anytime in 2023. Maybe they can manage to sell more than 17.9m to consumers in calendar 2023, but I personally wouldn't bet on it at this time.
