Forums - Sony Discussion - PS5 Data Analysis: OCT Update (PS5 Second best console after 12 Months)

Here is an interesting chart comparing the PS5 with the NS after 5 months. 

Right now the graph is heavily in favor of the NS (over 3M), but I believe that his month the PS5 should be able to turn things around and it will slowly start chipping away at this gap.

Hi everyone, here is the latest profile for the PS5

The PS5 had a great month, but in comparison to other mayor consoles it fell a bit behind.

1) The PS5 is virtually tied with the lifetime sales of the Dreamcast, it should surpass it any day now. 

2) This month, the PS5 also has the chance to pass the Sega Saturn lifetime sales.

3) In Gap charts, it is keeping pace with the 3DS and Switch, while it is ahead of all other consoles.

4) The PS5 came in fourth for April Year 1 sales. This puts it behind the Wii, PS4 and Switch

5) Next month's record seems a bit out of reach, specially when considering the shortages. But it will still be interesting to see if it can manage around 700K units.

6) At 8M sold in 6 months, the PS5 is having a fantastic first year, hopefully they can continue producing and selling as many consoles as possible.



May should be a way better month for PS5. Apparently there will be 2 big shipments in Europe this month and they launched in China today with over 50K sold on preorders alone.

Australia also received some nice shipments these past weeks. Stores like EB Games had some walk-ins consoles to pick up if you paid in full. This store in particular had long lists of orders to be fulfilled since launch. 

And I reckon there will be major adjustments especially in NA since there were stores like Amazon that received big shipments of the console at the end of April. 

So that’s good to hear the stock is getting better this month WW.



I only place my order for a ps5 (I am in NZ). While there is still a huge demand here, I was told that we would be getting a big shipment in July so hopefully a lot of orders will be filled.

Managed to buy four so far.



Hi everyone, it has been a while since I did one of these. Please let me know if you enjoy them or find them useful so that I keep doing them. 

This is a special one, looking at the PS5 year 1. It has been 12 months and there is plenty to look at:

Here is the Profile:

Key Highlights:

1) PS5 basically reached the WiiU lifetime sales. 

2) The PS5 is outselling all consoles except the Switch after 12 months.

3) The PS5 was able to surpass the 3DS Year 1 sales, the last few months made all the difference.

4) The PS5 was able to withstand very good months by the Wii in order to stay ahead of it. 

5) The PS5 had the 3rd best October Year1 of all time (1.1M), only surpassed by the PS4(1.4M) and Wii (1.34M).

6) Next month seems a bit tough, as shortages could really limit how many consoles can the PS5 sell. the 3M record by the NS seems out of reach. The PS4 had (2.3M) and the Wii had (2.1M) both could be reachable if it has great black friday sales.

Going deeper into the first year sales, lets take a look at the monthly comparison between PS5 and NS:
