People stayed home and spend money on PSN because of corona. Final Fantasy 7 Remake and The Last of Us Part II launching also were big movers. 74% digital software ratio is why they are comfortable releasing a digital only PS5. Hot damn way to end the PS4 era with a bang.

Damn impressive software numbers, but I think this could mean hardware is a bit overtracked.
VgChartz has it at around 111,9 mil at the end of June, which would only leave a 400k difference between shipped and sold. Even with low stock in some places (Japan in particular) than seems pretty low to me.



So, VGC has sold units currently at 112.6 million as of July 25th and Sony has shipped units at 112.3 million units as of June 30th
After doing some math and crunching some numbers, I've got sold units at ~112 million on June 30th. So, that would leave ~300k still in retailers or in transit. Under normal circumstances, I'd think that would be way overtracked, but these are not normal circumstances for a number of reasons, so I don't think it's too far off the mark.

And those software numbers... Wow. Just, wow.

Software numbers are absolutely insane. Super impressive
Having 3 massive hitters in the quarter definately did their part.

Though it looks like hardware numbers might not hit the heights in the end as most expected just a year ago, 9M forecast for the fiscal year tells me they're quickly facing out PS4 next year in favor of PS5.

~125M seems like a good bet at this point.

Can't comment for other countries but in Australia you can't buy a ps4pro for the last 2 months and slims are limited stock, I sold my ps4pro this week for more than I paid at launch.



45 million PS Plus users that's not bad.



Really insane Software numbers and PS plus gain of subs.

I thought Hardware would be higher. Could have been probably but they didnt want to up production at the end of its lifecycle with a new console coming. So I think PS4 is maybe a bit over tracked here but pretty close still.
